Denial of civil rights for faith

Sillanwali, District Sargodha; February 2022:  The administration here wrongfully deprived Mr. Abdul Aziz, local Ahmadi president, of his property, a plot of land, by sealing it. 

Mr. Aziz had rented this space to the medical college. A few months ago, a few locals from the neighborhood propagated that Qadianis were going to develop this plot into a missionary center. The mulla made hostile announcements from mosques’ loudspeakers. This generated hate against Ahmadis.

Thereafter, mullas of MTKN sent an application to the Town Committee stating that Qadianis were building their worship place on the plot. They also published hostile pamphlets on the issue. The administration found it convenient to seal the plot to placate the mulla.
