Appeal to Authorities to Protect Ahmadi Citizens

Ahmadiyya Persecution Statistics

19 Ahmadis were killed in 2012. 7 were killed in 2013, but 16 more survived attempts on their lives. Ahmadis face discrimination and accusations from all corners, yet there has been nothing done to protect these citizens – and yes they are Pakistani citizens, even if Second Amendment and Ordinance XX relegate them to secondary status. This abandonment of our citizens has given a black eye to the nation and international outcry is beginning to rise. Today the Asian Human Rights Commission has issued urgent appeal for authorities to provide immediate protection to Ahmadis from targeting and persecution.

Urgent Appeal Case: AHRC-UAC-079-2014

Please write the letters to the authorities calling them to provide security to Ahmadiyya community without any lapse. The high police officers must be charged for the negligence for not providing security to a community which constantly remains under attack from fundamentalist Muslims. Ahmadis have all the constitutional rights of any citizen of Pakistan including the right to life. The Punjab government must initiate an enquiry into the target killings of Ahmadis.

The AHRC is writing separate letters to the UN Special Rapporteurs on Freedom of Religion or Belief and on Extra-judicial, Summary, or Arbitrary Executions calling for their intervention into this matter.
