Rabwah; September 7, 2021:     Mullas hold rallies and conferences on September 7 to commemorate the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan. This amendment was pushed through by the Zulfiqar Bhutto government in 1974, through which Ahmadis were declared not-Muslims. This amendment opened the gates of persecution of Ahmadis in Pakistan.

Mullas hold a special conference every year in Rabwah — the center of the Ahmadiyya community in Pakistan, where Ahmadis are more than 95% of the population. Mullas come from far and wide to hurl abuses against the residents of the town and the personages they respect.

            This conference was organized by mulla Shabbir Ahmad Usmani, administrator of Madrassah Khatme Nabuwwat (KN) and Deputy Amir (president) Majlis Tahaffuz Khatme Nabuwwat (MTKN).

The first session started at 10:45.

            The second session started after Zuhr prayer chaired by mulla Muhammad Ilyas Chinioti MPA, and lasted until 17:10. All the mullas spoke against the Ahmadiyya community, leveled false allegations against the elders of the community, urged them to accept Islam and called them rebels against the state. Following are some extracts from the speeches:

  • Mulla Muhammad Rafiq of Lahore said, “The leader of the Mirzai Community is a deserter; he will not come back to Pakistan. … O Qadianis look at Afghanistan’s situation. The ulama and mujahideen have kicked the infidels out of Afghanistan, and a day will come when you will also run away from Pakistan.”
  • Shahbaz Ahmad Gujjar Advocate said, “Qadianis should first accept the Constitution, and then talk about their rights. Qadianis should be removed from key posts.”
  • Mulla Zahid Mahmud Qasmi of Faisalabad said, “We pursued Qadianis on all fronts, and held a KN conference in London in 1985.”
  • Mulla Gul Nabi of Lahore said, “We will die (kat marein gay) for the end of prophethood but will not let an amendment take place.”
  • Mulla Allah Ditta Shakir of Lalian, Qari Muhammad Shafiq, mulla Rashid Alrashidi and mulla Ziaur Rehman Farooqi used foul language against the Community.

The third and final session started at 20:50. It was chaired by mulla Shabbir Ahmad Usmani and lasted till 03:30. Approximately 250 men attended this session. Following was said by some of the speakers:

  • Mulla Abdul Rauf Farooqi of Lahore said, “Qadianis and Jews always conspire to make Muslims fight among themselves…. Qadianis’ philosophy failed in Afghanistan, while the philosophy of Hameed Gul and Zia ul Haq won. … The president, the prime minister and the army chief have sworn allegiance to the KN belief, they should convey to foreign powers that there shall be no change to that (commitment). Qadianis were planted by the English.”
  • Mulla Abdul Latif Khalid Cheema said, “Qadianiat is not only a religious issue but political too. Asia Masih was thrown out from the country despite her penalty, Shakoor Bhai, the optician was let fly from the country despite his penalty. Qadianis are tout of the U.S. Soon the spring will come to Pakistan as in Afghanistan.”
  • Mulla Ahmad Ali Nadim said, “Taliban were right that’s why they came to power again after twenty years; they won and Kufr (infidelity) fled. … I request the Army Chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa to see that there is no Qadiani in the army.”
  • Mehr Taimur A Lali MPA widened the net of infidelity: “One who does not respect the Companions is also not fit to be called a Muslim. We shall confront one who claims to be a prophet despite the KN.”
  • Mulla Ehsan Ullah Qasmi of Gujranwala said, “The flag of Islam is now flying in Afghanistan while the United States has fled from there.”
  • Mulla Nasir Madni of Lahore uttered extensive curses on the Ahmadiyya founder. “Any official who is soft on Mirzais is their accomplice”, he said.
  • Mulla Mehboob Ilahi of Lahore, mulla Abdul Rehman Tabassum of Sheikhupura, Iftikhar Ahmad of Kasur, mulla Asad Mehmood, mulla Gulzar Ahmad of Gujranwala, mulla Azam Farooqi of Bhakar, mulla Nasir Madni, Mufti Irshad of Bahawalpur, mulla Shabir Ahmad Usmani and mulla Ilyas Chinioti also addressed the crowd.
