April 2024: Mullas and authorities tried to bar Ahmadis from offering Eid prayer in Gujranwala and Faisalabad; they approached the authorities in this regard. In District Hafizabad, after the Eid prayer, opponents gathered outside the Ahmadiyya mosque and chanted slogans against the community. When the authorities were informed, the mob dispersed. Similarly, in Qasur city, the time for Eid prayer was set for 5:50 AM, but opponents gathered outside the Ahmadiyya mosque at 5:15 AM and began shouting slogans. Ahmadis had to make alternate arrangements.

In Adhowali, District Faisalabad, Ahmadis were coming out of their mosque after offering the Eid prayer when some activists of the notorious Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP) took pictures and filed a complaint at the Dijkot police station. Upon this, the police came, noted the addresses of the mentioned Ahmadis, and left. Later, on April 12, the police summoned them to the police station. They went to the police station along with five non-Ahmadi seniors, including the counsellor, the chairman, and the vice-chairman of the union council. The opponents began chanting slogans upon seeing them. The SHO was not present, and his assistant, an ASI stated that the SHO would handle the case himself, but TLP agitators continued to put pressure on the ASI and behaved rudely with him. They handed over some demands to the police. At this, the Ahmadis requested a two-day time. On April 14, a community delegation was summoned, and the local Ahmadiyya president went to the Dijkot police station. Opponents there were rude to the SHO. The SHO forwarded the matter to the Superintendent of Police (SP) for further action. The District President of the Ahmadiyya community met the Regional Police Officer (RPO) of Faisalabad and informed him of the entire situation. So, the RPO told the SP over the phone that the police cannot prevent anyone from worshipping. If there is any unlawful activity, it should be dealt with accordingly. The SP then sent for the Ahmadi delegation. Opponents were also present on this occasion; they were not willing to listen at all. The SP informed them that a Supreme Court decision allows Ahmadis to worship within their walls. However, the opponents continued to threaten the authorities with roadblocks. The parties were then summoned to the SP’s office in Samanabad.  Similarly, some clerics stood at some distance from the Ahmadiyya mosque in 84-JB, Sir Shamir, after the Juma prayer. They intercepted a passing Ahmadi and asked him if he was coming after offering prayer and the purpose those people had gathered there. The Ahmadi avoided a direct answer, and went away.
