Facts & Figures - 2001

The year 2001 was no different; it contained more of the same. The affliction is so extensive and pervasive that not everything gets reported. Words are often inadequate to describe the hurt and damage done by this environment of tyranny and loss of human rights. As such, an Annual Report, can at best only summarize the reported incidents. Every reader will grasp and assimilate its content according to his capacity and sensitivity to the plight of the target of each incident and circumstance. Annual Reports are also a historical record of the suffering of Ahmadiyya Community in Pakistan during these fateful years. The series is also available to the human rights activist to know the facts on the ground and to help him chart his own response to the tragedy that has become almost perpetual.
