Armed attack on Ahmadis in District Kasur

Bhulair, District Kasur; May 2024: The communal situation has been deteriorating here for the past two years, with persistent opposition against the Ahmadiyya community. Sometimes the situation seems to improve, but then new troubles arise. Recently, the same group that had previously harassed Ahmadis, has started threatening and shooting at community members again.

A few days ago, an Ahmadi youth was irrigating his field when the opponents fired shots at him. Fortunately, he remained unharmed. After this incident, Ahmadis informed the SHO of Police Station Sadar Bhai Pheru of the situation. A written complaint was made by Ahmadis to the police.

Meanwhile, on 19 May, miscreants from the opposing party intercepted another Ahmadi youth outside the village and threatened him. The youth reported the incident to the president of the local Ahmadiyya community. Shortly thereafter, the opposing party fired shots at Ahmadi homes. Luckily, no one was hurt. The police were immediately informed, but the perpetrators managed to flee.

The police registered a case against six malefactors of the opposition, but no arrests have been made so far. The police are posted on duty in the village thereafter.
