The NGO Coordination des Associations et des Particuliers pour la Liberté de Conscience (CAP LC) has been actively advocating for the rights of the Ahmadiyya community at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UN HRC). The Ahmadiyya, a minority Muslim community, faces severe persecution and discrimination in various countries, particularly in Pakistan, where they are officially declared non-Muslims and subjected to numerous restrictions and violence.

CAP LC has consistently raised concerns about the plight of the Ahmadiyya community during the UN HRC sessions. They have delivered oral statements, submitted written reports, and organized side events to highlight the human rights violations faced by Ahmadis, including:

  1. Religious discrimination: CAP LC has emphasized the need for the Pakistani government to repeal discriminatory laws that target Ahmadis and prevent them from freely practicing their faith.
  2. Blasphemy laws: The NGO has called attention to the misuse of blasphemy laws in Pakistan, which disproportionately affect Ahmadis and other religious minorities, leading to false accusations, arrests, and violence.
  3. Hate speech and incitement to violence: The organization has highlighted the role of hate speech and incitement to violence against Ahmadis in Pakistan, often perpetuated by religious leaders and politicians.

CAP LC has urged the UN HRC to pressure the Pakistani government to take concrete steps to protect the rights of the Ahmadiyya community, ensure their safety and security, and bring perpetrators of violence and discrimination to justice. The NGO continues to work towards raising international awareness about the persecution of Ahmadis and advocating for their fundamental human rights.
