Kamran Ahmad, Peshawar
Martyred on November 09, 2021

Another Ahmadi Kamran Ahmad 40 killed in Peshawar for his Faith.

On 9 November 2021, opponents opened fire on him in his office and martyred him. He was 44 years of age at the time of his martyrdom. He was working as an accountant in a factory owned by Ahmadi, respected Shafiqur Rahman Sahib. An armed person entered his office and opened fire, as a result of which he was struck by four bullets and was martyred on the scene.

Ahmadiyyat was established in the family of the deceased martyr through his father, Naseer Ahmad Sahib’s maternal grandfather, Hazrat Nabi Bakhsh Sahib(ra), son of Fateh Din Sahib of Bhini Bangar, which is near Qadian. Hazrat Nabi Bakhsh Sahib(ra) did bai‘at at the blessed hand of the Promised Messiah(as) in 1902 and entered into the fold of Ahmadiyyat.

A short while ago, the deceased martyr bought a store with his brother and made it into an office. The landlord of the store evicted them on a single day’s notice, only because they were Ahmadi. Thereafter, the opponents renamed the crossing [near it] as “Khatme Nabuwwat Chowk” Then after they purchased another store nearby, opponents rioted and evicted them from that store as well. In October, a large demonstration was held near their house and inflammatory speeches against the Jamaat were made. They say that they had never seen such a large demonstration before that in that area and severe hatred [against the Jama’at] was spread. For several years, the deceased martyr was the accountant for a private company, but due to opposition, he asked to leave that position. Upon this, the company told him that his standard and integrity were so high that they did not wish to let him go and that he should continue working for them, even if it was just for a few minutes. When they learned of his martyrdom, they were deeply affected by it.

Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V (aba) mentioned in his Friday sermon on 12th November 2021,

The deceased martyr possessed many great qualities. His father says:

“Once, he arrived home late, and I asked him why he had returned home so late. He said that there was a lady from the family of an opponent of the Jamaat who needed blood, and so he gave his own blood. He did so because that family was not financially well-off, and had no other options. He stated that they were responsible for their actions we are responsible for ours.”

He would always be at the forefront of serving others. He would be the first one present when it came to rendering any service or duty for the Jamaat, and would take it upon himself to stand guard in the areas where there was a greater threat of danger. Whenever someone would suggest to him that he should migrate, he would say, “If we leave from here, then Ahmadis who have fewer means will be made to face even more hardships”.

He was exemplary in offering chanda and would pay his financial contributions at the earliest possible time. Once, when he was 12 or 13 years of age, he was apprehended and taken into custody by the police for distributing pamphlets about a prayer duel and was released the next day. He [his father] says that he saw a dream two days before his martyrdom, in which an elderly lady was cleaning his house and said that Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV(rh) was coming. A little while later, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV(rh) arrived and took hold of the deceased martyr’s hand and lovingly said, “We will remain together and you will remain by my side.”

By the grace of Allah the Almighty, he was part of the Wasiyyat scheme. He was tender-hearted and loved by everyone in his area. He was very virtuous, sympathetic to the poor and had a deep love for Khilafat. He is survived by his parents; his father Naseer Ahmad Sahib and his mother, his wife, and three children, aged 13, 11 and eight.

May Allah the Almighty be the Protector and Helper of these children and grant everyone forbearance and patience. May He also grant the deceased with His forgiveness and mercy and elevate his station. Pray for his mother as well, who is suffering from cancer; may Allah the Almighty bestow His blessings.
