TLP obstruct Ahmadi burial

Kot Sondha, District Sheikhupura; April 9, 2021:  Six Ahmadi families live in Kot Sondha. The village has a common cemetery. However, Ahmadis’ graves are separately located in the cemetery. In the past, village elders had mutually decided that the location of Ahmadis’ graves remain set aside for them.

Ms. Hanifa, an Ahmadi woman, died on April 9. Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) clerics and workers obstructed her burial. The police were contacted and asked to resolve the issue of the burial. The police intervened and an agreement was signed between the parties whereby the area of Ahmadis’ graves would be fenced off so that there would be no problem in the future.
