Ahmadiya community fit to be killed, says pamphlets in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Pamphlets branding members of the minority Ahmadiya community as “wajib-ul-qatl” (fit to be killed) and inciting people to attack them are being openly circulated in Pakistan’s textile industry hub of Faisalabad, according to a media report.

The pamphlets list the names of several Ahmadiya industrialists, doctors and businesses.

The first name is that of a cloth house, three owners of which were gunned down in a brazen attack last year, The Express Tribune newspaper reported.

The pamphlets were issued by the All Pakistan Students Khatm-e-Nubuwat Federation and are being circulated at main shopping plazas and important commercial centres of the city in Punjab province.

“To shoot such people is an act of jihad and to kill such people is an act of sawab (blessing),” the pamphlets say.

The Umoor-e-Aama Jama’at Ahmadiyya of Faisalabad, a group representing the community, reacted to the distribution of such literature by saying that the propaganda campaign is being “carried out unhindered by some fanatic religious groups under the patronage of law enforcing agencies and the provincial government”.

The Jama’at blamed the Punjab government for ignoring several protests lodged by the province’s Ahmadiya community.

It said religious fanatics are being encouraged by inaction on the part of government agencies.
