Pakistan: Another Ahmadiyya mosque defiled and damaged at the hands of Punjab Police


Reportedly some Militant Muslim clerics in Pakistan were up in arms over the Islamic creed being visible through the cracks between wooden planks previously installed by the police to hide the Kalima writings on the Ahmadiyya mosque and threatened street action.

While police in Hyderabad, India were busy defending the Ahmadiyya Muslim properties attacked and forcibly occupied by an Islamist militant mob, across the border in Pakistan, the Punjab Police too returned to Ahmadiyya Baituz Zikr in Gharri Shaho, Lahore, the scene of the 2010 terrorist attacks.

In India, in a town near Hyderabd, building of a minaret at an Ahmadī mosque excited the local Mulsim militants who did not approve of the Ahmadiyya mosque looking too much like a mosque.

In Pakistan, the motive of the Punjab police to visit Baituz Zikr in Lahore , however, was drastically different from their counterparts in India, it was reported in the social media.

According to Mr. Saleemud Din, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community representative in Pakistan, the Punjab police came to Baituz Zikr to remove or cover up Kalima, the Islamic creed, from the Ahmadiyya facilities which Ahmadis profess as part of their faith.

Reportedly some Militant Muslim clerics in Pakistan were up in arms over the Islamic creed being visible through the cracks between wooden planks previously installed by the police to hide the Kalima writings on the Ahmadiyya mosque and threatened street action.

The laws of Pakistan forbids Ahmadī Muslims to ‘pose as Muslims’ and build their mosques ‘posing as Muslim’ Mosques.

Police immediately complied with the militants’ demands and removed the Islamic creed.

The incident yesterday came after only a few weeks when the same Punjab Police defaced the frontal façade of the Ahmadiyya Mosque in Sultan Pura area of Lahore while removing the Kalima and attributes of God Almighty.

The Ahmadiyya representative said that the responsibility of police is to enforce the law and protect the public but the Punjab police are always at the forefront of persecution of minorities.

Saleemud Din reminds people that the incident of yesterday happened at Baituz Zikr in Ghari Shaho – the same location where scores of Ahmadis laid their lives in 2010.

On May 28, 2008, two Ahmadiyya mosques – in Gharri Shaho and Model Town – were attacked by Pakistani Talian and while 87 Ahmadis were killed by suicide bombers in the murderous rampage.

In yesterday’s action, Saleemud Din says, police were extra efficient that they brought ladders of exact height, uniforms, and everything necessary was readily available to camouflage the Kalima.
