Severe Threats

2014

 

An attempt to set Ahmadiyya mosque ablaze

Hyderabad; January 23, 2014:          Unidentified persons tried to set the Ahmadiyya mosque in Goth Lashari on fire. They jumped over the northern wall which had barbed wire over it, during the dark hours. They had brought petrol with them; they spilled it and set it alight. The nearby door got burnt a bit, while the mosque remained safe miraculously. The police were informed the next morning. A threatening note was found in the mosque after the incident. It conveyed:

“Curse on the Qadiani dog. We have tolerated a lot, but not anymore. Be good enough to kill yourself, otherwise you will be killed like a dog. Today, we have undertaken arson, tomorrow we could do much more. Cursed be your life and the life of MirzaQadiani. You are all progeny of infidels. Perish or flee away. We are warning you for the last time: Embrace Islam, or have a coffin ready at home.”

Ahmadis improved their security arrangements subsequently.

 

Threat to Ahmadis for ransom in WahCantt

WahCantt, District Rawalpindi:         Five Ahmadis here received threat letters by post, telling them to pay ransom, become a Muslim or face death. Their text is translated below:

“You are Qadianis and blasphemous to the Holy Prophet. Flee from this country of ours. You have no right to stay in Pakistan. However, if you become Muslims, we will treat you as our brothers in faith. For this, you will have to visit Almustafiz Dar-e-Ahsan, Samundri Road, Faisalabad. If not, be prepared to die. You people should be treated under section 58-C (sic), which provides death as penalty laid down in the Constitution of Pakistan. Anyone who sympathizes (with you) will also be considered blasphemous against the Holy Prophet, and will be killed as well. However, if you want to stay alive, you should contribute two million rupees for the Trust we have established for the poor in Burewala. Otherwise go away from here. After 15th October, we will kill you. You may inform of this anyone you may choose. We are the lovers of the Holy Prophet, we are not afraid of anyone. It is up to you to decide whether you want to live or die. Dr. NisarJutt MNA, ChaudhryIlyasJutt former MNA, General Safdar Malik (Ex – Governor), SaeedIqbalWahla, Khalid Latif Mughal, SajjadRasul (Deputy DG ISI), AslamTarin (Ex-IG Punjab) and Colonel Tanvir Jalal, all of them are our brothers in cult, and we all are followers of Hazrat Abu Anis Muhammad Barkat Ali Ludhianvi. Also other members of our cult occupy high positions in the government. You may contact us at the following phone numbers.

From:  ChaudhryNadim of Burewala”

A similar threat (identical text) was sent to Dr. Tariq Mahmud, an Ahmadi of Adda Sheikh Fazal, DistrictVehari. Obviously the source is the same. The source urged the addressee to contact Bashir Jat at Cell Phone #0332-8498786. The source was thus traceable. The police were informed. No result.

Grave consequences of legal action

Sabzazar:        Mr. Adnan Munir S/O Mr. Munir Ahmad escaped an attempt at kidnapping last year in June. He lodged an FIR with the police station against ten suspects. Four of them were arrested while six are still on the run. Mr. Munir has been receiving threatening calls since then. His son and daughter escaped an attempt on their lives on August 18, 2014. The attackers snatched a gold chain from his daughter but could do no further harm because a number of people assembled at the spot, and fled away.

The entire family is greatly disturbed and feels at risk. They have to take great care when appearing in court. Their business has suffered heavily. The state has done little to deter the hostile goons.

 A stunning threat

Lahore; January 2014:          Rana Muhammad Akram, an Ahmadi of Shahdara received the following threat by letter:

(Translated text)

You’ve not understood despite (our) repeated reminders. You were told twice to correct yourself but it seems that you do not make sense of our message; instead you are becoming more of a Mirzai (Ahmadi) by the day. You are trying to become more of a Mirzai activist; we know all about you. We watch closely all your movements, where you go, whom you meet and what you do.

You are being given another chance. If you do not correct yourself within ten to fifteen days or do not shift from the area, we will make you an example for anyone who is considering conversion to Mirzaiat. We are set to accomplish all the tasks that we have been assigned about Mirzais. We have to exterminate this evil (fitna) from Pakistan anyhow, and we shall target-kill all (Ahmadis). As per Pakistani law, you people are Wajib-ul-Qatl (must be killed).

Do not take it as an empty threat. This is our last warning to you. What happens to you henceforth will be witnessed by all and sundry.

 Samanabad; March 28, 2014:           An Ahmadi driving his car was stopped by some unidentified persons at the Millat Crossing. They searched his vehicle and objected to the ‘traveler’s prayer’ hanging in his car. “Being a Qadiani you have no right to keep Quranic verses and prayers. This is unlawful for you,” they asserted. The police arrived at the scene and tried to pacify the bigots but did not succeed. So, they took both the parties to the police station where they made the Ahmadi youth and his fellow sign a paper declaring that he did not intentionally hang the prayer in the car. This absurd procedure solved the grave non-issue.

 Reports from Karachi

  • October 25, 2014:       Some unknown persons threw a letter in the Ahmadiyya mosque in North Karachi. It contained abusive language against Ahmadis and had a bullet affixed on it with a tape. The message was obvious.
  • Sabir Colony, Karachi; November 2014:      Usman Ahmad, son of Mr. Aftab Ahmad, was burning waste paper near his house when his little sister added a religious certificate to the fire. Usman immediately took it out however a little part of it got burnt. Usman was walking back with the damaged certificate when a non-Ahmadi boy snatched the document from him and ran towards the nearby non-Ahmadiyya mosque. When Usman and his mother followed the boy, he shouted, “Look, these Qadianis are burning Arabic.” The people gathered at the tumult and admonished the mother and the son. “Note down their home address and inform the police,” they said. Usman and his mother went home and informed community elders. In view of the likelihood of violence the family vacated the house and shifted elsewhere. When they were shifting, some street boys shouted, “Qadianis burnt the Quran and now they are fleeing from here.” Miscreants later did the wall-chalking on their house: “Go Qadiani Go; Kafir (Infidel) QadianiKafir.”

Extremists pursue an Ahmadi

GulshaneIqbal East, Karachi; January 2014:                      Mr. Muhammad Saleem Ansari had been receiving threatening phone calls and letters for the last one year. So, he sold his residence and moved into a rented house. The extremists haunted him there too. They told the landlord to expel ‘the Qadiani blasphemer’ from his house. Ansaris have three children. They moved their residence to GulshaneIqbal West in the face of these threats. The miscreants still pursue them. The family is very upset.

 An Ahmadi doctor threatened

Okara; March 3, 2014:          Dr. Muhammad Imran came to his clinic after the evening prayers. Two youths came to his clinic. They picked up his visiting card and objected to the word ‘Muhammad’ in his name. “What is your relation with this name; you are a Qadiani and Wajib-ul-Qatl(must be killed). You are given seven days; leave this area, or you will be yourself responsible for the consequences. We will not spare you,” they threatened.

 Threats in Hafizabad

August 23, 2014:        Non-Ahmadi youths of MangatUncha threatened some Ahmadi youths that they would treat Ahmadis there the same way as in Gujranwala (referring to the murder, arson and loot there in July 2014).

The president of the local Ahmadiyya community contacted the parents of those youths and complained to them about these threats. He received favourable response from the elders.

 Grave threat to an Ahmadi in Kotli

Kotli; September 2014:           Mr. Aftab Ahmad, the head of Ahmadiyya youth organisation of District Kotli, received the following threat by post:

“Aftab, Mirzai, the filthy Qadiani and professor, we have come to know of what you did in Goi. You and the professor will be slaughtered, God willing. You and your family will be slaughtered inside your house, inshAllah. You have misbehaved with our Imam of the mosque. We will kidnap you. You cannot escape from us. You and your brother professor should start counting down the days. We will slaughter you, the blasphemers. Blasphemers, Blasphemers, Blasphemers, just wait; and you will be murdered surely like Shah Muhammad Javed. Lovers of the Prophet

All Ahmadis living in Kotli, especially the District Amir and Mr. Ahmad have been advised to exercise great caution and try to shift elsewhere for some time because of this grave threat to their persons.

 Threatening letters

Lahore; November 25, 2014: Some Ahmadi individuals/communities in Lahore received threat letters written on letter-head pad of JamaatIslami, for example:

  • Someone dropped a letter at the prayer center of JamaatAhmadiyyaIqbal Town. It carried the message, “Discontinue your worship from this place immediately otherwise it will be attacked, anytime. You have two to three days.”
  • A threat letter was thrown at the home of Mr. IrfanMasood and Mr. Asim Ahmad in Iqbal Town. It contained the threat: “Both of you brothers and your family are not refraining from your community activities. You are hereby told to leave this place within 24 hours, otherwise you will meet a sorry end.”
  • Another letter had the warning: “O Qadianis, your infidel activities are continuing in this prayer center. You are required to close down your worship in this place with immediate effect otherwise you will be attacked anytime.”
  • Yet another letter had the threat: “You people (Qadianis) are not refraining from your activities. Therefore, you are expected to quit this place within 24 hours or face dreadful consequences.”

Mr. Masood and Mr. Ahmad had an FIR registered in Moon Market Police Station. In follow-up inquiry, JamaatIslami did not own up the letters and assured the police that some group fraudulently prepared and passed these threats. “Most likely it is the work of (the) lingo group,” they opined.

 Dacoit’s threat

Jhangar Hakim Wala, District Nankana; November 25, 2014:       Ahmadis here are facing severe opposition from opponents of the community. Anti-Ahmadiyya literature is distributed in the village. Mr. Muhammad Afzal S/O RaiMansab Ali was deported back with family from Sri Lanka, a few months ago. Five unknown dacoits broke into the house of Mr. Afzal on November 25, 2014 at 1:30 a.m. and threatened to kill him. The intruders knew that Mr. Afzal is the finance secretary of the local Jamaat and demanded the community funds. They threatened to kill his child and take his wife as a hostage on refusal. They fled after taking one hundred thousand rupees of the community fund. During the dacoity, Mr. Afzal pleaded them over the Holy Quran to not rob him of the charity money, to which they replied, “You are a Mirzai; you have no link with the Quran. Leave the community; it will be better for you.”

 A threatening letter

Shalamar Town, Lahore; December 8, 2014:          A threat letter was thrown at the house of Mr. Muzaffar Ahmad, the local secretary of general affairs. It carried the following message:

“God is great. Listen Mirzais, we give you a deadline of one month to leave this house otherwise we will bomb you and your family. If you do not comply you will soon see the dead bodies of your mother, sister. Get lost from here within a month. We shall also attack your place of worship.”

An incident report was filed with police station Baghbanpura. They are investigating.

2013

 Anyone who makes a claim of prophethood in any form and shape is a liar….. and an Islamic Government…is(duty) bound to order that either he should enter the fold of Islam or he be killed.

A threatening message to a lady doctor

Quetta; February 2013:         Dr. Sadiqa Sultana, Ahmadi received a letter from a banned organization, BK Group Balochistan. Its translation is as follows:

“Dr. Sadiqa Sultana, listen carefully and then decide. If you care for your life and that of your children, you have to comply. You have to pay us two million rupees. We have all the information about you. Your timings to and from the hospital, the members of your family and their schedulesare known to us. You will be responsible for any harm to members of your family if you do not pay us the money. Call us on 0333-6233653. We’ll wait for your phone call. The decision is yours.”

Dr. Sultana was advised to shift and remain alert.

Threat to Ahmadis in Karachi

Sector 11-B, North Karachi, August 2013:   The local Ahle-Sunnat mosque ‘Ayesha’ has been taken over by a jihadi organisation, LashkareJhangvi banned for its terrorist activities. People generally are upset over this, and Ahmadis also feel concerned. Seven Ahmadi families reside nearby and their mosque is also located close by. Authorities have been informed of this portentous development.

 Threat to an Ahmadi in Sargodha

KotFareed; Sargodha; November 4, 2013:   MashAllah (Whatever God wills), an Arabic inscription common among Muslims, is written on the outer wall of Mr. RiazHussain. Three unidentified men came to his house on November 4 at 11 p.m. They knocked at his door but Mr. Hussain did not open it. They threatened him to remove the inscription by 9 a.m. the next day otherwise they would set his house on fire.

This matter was reported to the police in writing. Mr. Hussain received threatening calls on his mobile phone. The police visited him and traced the unknown caller, who was not far away. The police took him in custody and warned him; he agreed to refrain from such harassment in future.

 Corrupting the Sharia – sans limite

Vehari; July 2013:     Mr. Hafiz Ahmad Khan, a former Amir JamaatAhmadiyyaVehari received the following threat note from the banned LashkarJhangvi (SipahSahabah): (Translation)

“We wrote to you earlier that although we could kill you, but have decided to send you this warning for the present. Do not think that LashkarJhangvi exists no more. Everyone is mistaken (to think so). We are constantly in the know of your movements. You can not dissuade us by informing the administration. This is the final warning to you: Convert to Islam or pay up 5 million Jizya or face death.”

In early Islam Jizya was the poll tax paid by non-Muslim citizens of the Islamic state, in lieu of military service undertaken to protect the citizens from enemy attacks.

The corrupt mulla has the impudence to call his crime of ‘kidnapping for ransom’ Jizya. This is corruption of still another Sharia term by the neo-Kharijites.

 Threatening note to an Ahmadi

Faisalabad; October 3, 2013:            Mr. Tanveer Ahmad owns here a tailoring shop, Keepa Tailors. He received a threatening note at his shop. It is a cause of great concern and stress to him.
