Hyderabad Muslim groups demand ban on the activities of Qadiyanis

Hyderabad: The Ahmadiyas (Qadiyanis) are now the most wanted and haunted people in Hyderabad. Every local Muslim organization and political party are demanding ban on their activities and community halls. Hyderabad has history of conflict between Muslims and Qadiyanis. Last month the A.P. wakf board had unlisted the properties of Ahmadiya community from the wakf list, and handed over those properties to endowments and even asked the Qazis not to perform their Nikah. This was seen by many as political decisions.

But the conflict now seems to be on its peak with the protests by the local Muslims objecting the celebration of Ahmadiya sect formation day. On 25th March a group of Qadiyanis was celebrating their sect’s formation day at their community center Masjid-ul- Hamd in Saidabad. But before the program, they distributed material in three different languages which was allegedly inflammatory in nature according to the locals. The material played with the modesty of Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and the holy Mosques in Mecca & Madina, it even used Quranic verses and kalima which were objected by many local Muslims as according to them they cannot use holy scripts as they are not Muslims.
