India: Ahmadi volunteers beaten, abused by thugs claiming to be Muslims


When the Ahamdi youth volunteers decried the mistreatment and closure of the bookstall after having paid the rent in advance to the Fair Organizers at their offices, they again met with violence by the the same employee of the organizers and the youth were beaten up again.

Several Ahmadī volunteers at a bookstall organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community were beaten and abused by an Islamist mob in Kasaragod, Kerala, India.

The bookstall was part of a ten-day fair in this coastal town where the Ahmadī members of a neighboring town, Mogral, had legally rented a location to display their books.

According a report filed by Shahid Pervez from India, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community says the bookstall ran smoothly for four days, until the ‘success at our stall’ was noticed by some militant Muslim factions visiting the fair.

Further according to the report, a mob of several dozen thugs returned on Sunday evening ‘during closing hours and started a ruckus’ demanding that the bookstall must be shutdown forthwith.

There were 4 Ahmadī Muslim youth volunteers, supervised by a community elder, managing the bookstall at the time of the incident.

The protesters were joined by a ‘Muslim’ employee representing the Fair Organizers and, according to the report, when the Ahmadī elder tried to reason with him, the employee struck the Ahmadī elder and ordered the bookstall closed.

When the Ahamdi youth volunteers decried the mistreatment and closure of the bookstall after having paid the rent in advance to the Fair Organizers at their offices, they again met with violence by the the same employee of the organizers and the Ahmadi youth were beaten up again.

After the ordeal the volunteers left the bookstall.

The mob again caught up with the Ahmadī volunteers outside the Fair Grounds and warned them not to return and never be seen at the Fairgrounds again – at the risk of their lives.

There have been no reports if the law enforcement authorities responded to the situation or if a case was registered by the police.
