We are deeply perturbed and stressed to learn that leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Q (PML-Q) are trying to persuade the local Police Force to evict all Ahmadis from the District because of their faith and belief, in another horrific escalation of anti-Ahmadiyya persecution.
Pakistani Police and Mullahs spent Eid-ul-Adha this year by raiding the houses of Ahmadi Muslims, harassing, and humiliating them and registering criminal cases against them in Police Stations. Their outcry and senseless actions did not spare even visiting Ahmadis from foreign countries to join in the Eid celebrations.
No society can claim to be idealisticly egalitarian as certain elements of every society always claim superiority over the others, either on ethnic, numerical, or religious basis and try to usurp some rights of the weaker segments, but the governing forces of the societies usually play positive regulatory role in order to quell the unruly advancements of the powerful groups in order to safeguard the rights of the minorities or those weaker segments. In modern world the States have promulgated and implemented laws to guarantee basic human rights for all of its citizens irrespective of their caste, creed or religion and many States have guaranteed these basic human rights by incorporating them in their Constitution or are otherwise accepted by the humanity, while assuring its citizens and international community that the guaranteed right would not be violated at any cost and in case of violation the aggrieved person would be allowed some kind of remedy by approaching the Constitutional Courts for enforcement of those rights.
We strongly urge the international community to impress upon the Government of Pakistan to honor its responsibility, to provide effective protection and freedom of religious practice to Ahmadis, that perpetrators of such vicious attacks should be brought to justice, and to bring its laws and practices in conformity with international standards as ordained by Article 20, United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights Article 2, 18 and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) Article 25, 26.
