Pakistan: Religious places of Ahmadiyya Muslims were demolished in Sindh and Punjab, fundamentalist people carried out the incident
Pakistan: According to reports, fundamentalist people and police broke arches and minarets. Most of the incidents of vandalism took place in Sindh and Punjab provinces of Pakistan. Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Pakistan says that Ahmadiyya Muslims are being sidelined in the country and the situation is worsening day by day. Ahmadiyya Muslims are being tortured at the hands of fundamentalist elements of Pakistan.
In Pakistan, at least 28 religious places of minority Ahmadiyya Muslims have been vandalized since January 2023. According to a report by Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Pakistan, radical Islamists or police in various parts of Pakistan have harassed Ahmadiyya Muslims to such an extent that ten of their religious places in Sindh province and the rest in Punjab province have been publicly destroyed.
According to the report, some Ahmadi religious places were attacked by people of the radical Islamic party, while at other places, under pressure from the radicals, the police themselves completely removed the minarets, arches, inscriptions, and structures of their places of worship.
A similar recent incident took place in Punjab province on Friday, September 8, when local police removed the arches of Ahmadiyya shrines. This was done by ignoring the High Court order which had banned the demolition of religious places of minority communities built before 1984.
Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Pakistan says that Ahmadiyya Muslims are being sidelined in the country and the situation is worsening day by day. Ahmadiyya Muslims are being tortured at the hands of fundamentalist elements of Pakistan. Demolition of their religious places has become a new norm and the administration is not doing anything about it. Ahmadis are commonly called Qadinis in Pakistan, which is a derogatory term for them.
The Pakistani Parliament had declared the Ahmadi community as non-Muslims in 1974. He has been banned from preaching religion and going to Saudi Arabia to perform Hajj. Whereas in Pakistan their number is around one million.
