Sectarian violence against the persecuted Ahmadi community continues.

The community is considered not just non-Muslim but also blasphemous by a large section of Pakistanis, so much so that the liberal Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, during his prime ministership, had to issue a decree labeling Ahmadis as non-Muslims.

In a fresh incident last week, two Ahmadis were killed in the same city.

Things came to such a pass that the local police began to remove epitaphs carrying Quranic verses from the graves of Ahmadis to pre-empt violent incidents.

Following this, the embattled community wrote a letter appealing for security.

Last year, the Supreme Court initiated a suo motu case against Karachi’s violence.

The Express Tribune reported on November 2: “During a recent Supreme Court hearing in Karachi that was examining the progress made on its 2011 verdict on violence in the city, a police officer attempted to explain why over a dozen people had died the day before the hearing. ‘And this person was a Qadiani,’ he said, referring to a victim.

There was no further explanation.

Nine Ahmadis have been killed in Karachi since January, a marked increase from recent years.

The Ahmadiyya Jamaat has now written to government officials, including the president, prime minister… calling on them to take action against those responsible.

The community believes that Ahmadis have been targeted for their faith.”

The Express Tribune reported that “during the last 13 months, 2,381 murder cases were registered and 761 arrests were made.”
