A local Ahmadi leader is shot and killed in Karachi, Pakistan, it is learnt from reports posted in the social media website, Twitter.

According to the early information, the president of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at of Orangi Town, Karachi was gunned down in front of his own home early Thursday.

The shots were fired into the victim’s head at a close range, it was further learned.

The incident is confirmed by Saleem-ud Din, the national spokesperson of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at in  Pakistan and the victim has been identified as Naeem Ahmad Gondal of Orangi Town area in Karachi.

The victim was 52 year old and leaves behind a wife.

Further, according the information made available, Mr. Gondal was a government employee, working as an Assistant Director – Accounts, for the State Bank of Pakistan.

Ahmadis are an easy target of murder and religious hate because of the sate imposed procedures restricting their rights and freedom.

Although not yet confirmed, Saleem-ud Din suspects, this might be the result of hatemongering incited through Anti-Ahmadi signs, hate literature, and wall-chalkings in Gondal’s immediate area.

Ahmadiyya spokesperson said Naeem Gondal is the 7th Ahmadis to lay his life during the first 7 months of 2012.

“This is the second Ahmadi in Karachi in 6 months to lose his life to such hate crimes and just few days ago another Ahmadi was targeted,” Saleemudin further stated.

  1. It is a brutal act and such brutalities are not coming to an end instead they are increasing day by day specially in this PPP Government. It is a genocide act against Ahmadya community and that must be stopped. The security of life, property and religion of a citizen is a fundamental responsibility of a government and any government who fails to provide security of any one element out of these three, to its citizen no matter which community he or she belongs, that government has no right to govern. In Ahmadya case, all three i-e life, property and religion, are threatened and are in extreme danger. The game of death against this innocent and harmless community is being played wildly and widely in whole Pakistan. The people belong to this community, they are being persecuted on the name of religion. Their lives and property are at targets and threatened because of their religion. The biggest tragedy is that 99.99% people in Pakistan has no intention or no courage or no moral power to speak out openly on this opened genocide of Ahmadya community. They either are pleased to hear these news or if not pleased then they have no moral courage to condemn on these brutal activities even at the name of humanity. Allah may guide and grant right direction to these people who determined to commit these wild acts. Amin! And Allah may provide His help to these innocent and helpless Ahmadis Amin!
