13- Freedom of Religions and Worship

Freedom of religions and worship


Although the Constitution of Pakistan provides freedom of faith to its citizens, Ahmadis have been made a glaring exception to this fundamental provision. In fact, religious freedom was the first casualty under the Ordinance XX, promulgated by General Zia in 1984. This injury is the most hurtful and agonizing, because the Ahmadiyya community is basically a religious entity. No other religious community in Pakistan is exposed to this extent of discrimination and persecution.

Some more incidents that are related to worship are recorded in sub-section 4: Mosque under attack and worship denied.
