Dolyan Jattan, AJK; February 2024: Seven Ahmadi female teachers were serving in the Government Girls High School Dolyan Jattan, District Kotli. As a part of recent anti-Ahmadi campaign, they were subjected to harassment in various ways. Following the attack on the Ahmadiyya mosque on February 12, 2024, opponents launched a campaign against the Ahmadi teachers. They incited the local community and students against these teachers, even threatening violence and demanding their expulsion from the school. This campaign was also propagated on social media. An ‘action committee’ of the institution called for protests against these teachers and threatened an indefinite closure of the institution. Consequently, the administration transferred six Ahmadi teachers to different schools elsewhere.

Ms. Talat Qayyum was transferred third time within a month despite a stay order from the court. Ms. Parveen Akhtar was transferred from Dolyan Jattan to Chouk Sahiban. Ms. Sofia Tazeen, who was transferred from Kara to Dolyan Jattan, has now been sent back to Kara. Ms. Mubashirah Siddiqa was transferred from Dolyan Jattan to Saral. Ms. Jameela Siddiqa was transferred to Gond. Similarly, another teacher, Ms. Rafat Qayyum, who had returned to her home station after 18 years, was transferred for the second time within two months despite a court stay order.

 It is relevant to mention that such transfers cause a great deal of hardship and inconvenience to most of the affected teachers.
