In the deeply disturbing video, the extremist declares “jihad” against the already persecuted and ostracised peaceful Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. He calls upon Muslims to “cut the tongue” and “strike down the hand” that interpolates the Holy Quran. He further urges Muslims to “crush the brain and “smash the heart” which “harbours rebellion” against it. “We will not rest until the last Qadiani is alive on the face of this earth,” the video says.
The action took place in the middle of the night and represents a gross violation by the State authorities. It violates basic human rights of religious freedom and the Supreme Court’s decision in 2014 to protect places of worship. There was no legal justification for this action.
On January 7th 2023, Hassan Muawiyah, along with some of his associates in private cars, illegally detained an Ahmadi Mr. Mubarak Ahmed Sani from his house in Chenab Nagar. Mr. Sani was named in the said FIR. After illegally detaining Mr. Sani, Hassan Muawiyah handed him over to the Chenab Nagar Police Station. Afterwards, the police authorities raided Mr. Sani’s house. Mr. Sani is currently being detained at Saddar Police Station, Chiniot.
In a speech1 by Syed Muhammad Sibtain Shah Naqvi (Patron Makazi Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadees, Punjab; Founder and Principal of Markaz Imam Bukhari Sargodha), he went to the inhumane extent of saying, “if an Ahmadi’s house is on fire, you should pour petrol on it, not water”. This egregious and toxic statement risks influencing impressionable youth in an environment already extremely hostile to Ahmadi Muslims who have every basic human right stripped away from them in the country. Their voice is being suffocated as Ahmadi representatives are being de- platformed at events and educational institutions.
