Ahmadiyyas in trouble

Sharif Nishat Hussain, College Road, Auch Para, Tongi, Gazipur

A campaign is being launched against the Ahmadiyya community. In the banner of different Islamic organisations these fellows have raised the demand that this segment of Muslims be declared non-Muslims by the government. Moreover, they have taken a very offensive stand against this peace-loving minority sect. This chaos has been created by a hardliner group targeting the Ahmadiyya community.

It is really brutal and inhuman. We have observed that after a pause a group armed with sticks gathered around Ahmadiyya mosques after the Jumma prayers. In different areas their houses were attacked and burnt.

I don’t know much about them. But apparently we observe that Ahmadiyyas are innocent and harmless. Why should people try to persecute them?

The government should take immediate steps to stop repression on Ahmadiyyas.
