Tasawar Ramzan, a senior police officer, said that acting swiftly on the complaint, we have arrested three of the five suspects named in the FIR. He said Ahmadis have been booked and arrested for celebrating Muslim festivals. Under the law, Ahmadis can neither present themselves as Muslims nor celebrate their festivals, he said.
Not only the murder of Ahmadiyya, there is also an allegation of blasphemy
Hundreds of Ahmadiyya Muslims are murdered every year in Pakistan because fundamentalists think they are infidels. A study published by the Institute of Development Studies in November 2020 reported that between 1984 and 2019, 265 Ahmadis were killed and 393 were attacked in Pakistan. There were 70 cases of Ahmadis refusing to be buried in the common cemetery during this period. In 39 incidents, the bodies of buried Ahmadis were removed from the grave.
Pakistan also persecutes Ahmadis legally
Minority Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan are also persecuted through law. Between 1984 and 2019, 765 cases were registered against Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan on religious grounds. Most of these cases were related to the display of Kalma. In 38 cases, Ahmadi Muslims were put behind bars for azaan. 453 were arrested for disguising themselves as Muslims. 161 was caught for using Islamic adjectives. In addition, 315 Ahmadis were charged under the blasphemy law.
