پاکستان میں ایک احمدی مسجد پر حملہ، متعدد زخمی

پاکستان میں ایک احمدی مسجد پر حملہ، متعدد زخمی

مقامی حکام کے مطابق ہزاروں افراد نے احمدی مسجد پر حملہ کرتے ہوئے مسجد کے ایک حصے کو آگ لگا دی۔ حکام کا کہنا ہے کہ اس حملے کے وقت مسجد کے اندر درجنوں افراد موجود تھے۔

حکام کے مطابق پاکستانی صوبہٴ پنجاب کے ضلع چکوال میں پیش آنے والے اس واقعے میں مشتعل افراد نے ابتدا میں ڈنڈوں اور پتھروں سے اس مسجد پر حملہ کیا، جب کہ بعد میں مسلح افراد نے احمدیوں پر فائرنگ شروع کر دی۔

مقامی پولیس افسر راشد احمد کے مطابق، اس مشتعل ہجوم نے مسجد کے ایک حصے کو آگ بھی لگا دی۔ دوسری جانب مسجد کے اندر موجود افراد نے بھی حملہ آوروں پر اینٹیں پھینکیں، جس کے نتیجے میں چند حملہ آور بھی زخمی ہو گئے۔

ایک اور پولیس افسر ملک نواز نے بتایا کہ سکیورٹی فورسز نے جائے واقعہ پر پہنچ کر مشتعل ہجوم کو منشر کیا، جب کہ مسجد کو سِیل کر دیا گیا۔

بتایا گیا ہے کہ صورت حال اس قدر خراب تھی کہ مقامی حکام کو فوج اور نیم فوجی دستے طلب کرنا پڑے۔ احمدی برادری کے ایک ترجمان سلیم الدین نے بتایا کہ مشتعل ہجوم نے مسجد کو چاروں جانب سے گھیر لیا تھا۔

یہ بات اہم ہے کہ پاکستانی پارلیمان نے سن 1974ء میں احمدیوں کو غیرمسلم قرار دے دیا تھا، جب کہ تبھی سے شدت پسند اس اقلیتی برادری کے خلاف پُرتشدد حملوں میں ملوث رہے ہیں۔ خبر رساں ادارے ایسوسی ایٹڈ پریس کے مطابق شدت پسندوں کی جانب سے احمدی مسلمانوں کے خلاف توہین مذہب کے الزامات بھی تواتر سے سامنے آتے رہتے ہیں۔ ایسوسی ایٹڈ پریس کے مطابق پاکستان میں گو کہ تمام ہی اقلیتوں کے خلاف پُرتشدد واقعات سامنے آتے رہتے ہیں، تاہم احمدی اقلیت کو بالخصوص شدید معاشرتی تفریق اور تشدد کا سامنا ہے۔ پاکستانی قانون کے مطابق اس برادری سے تعلق رکھنے والا کوئی بھی شخص نہ تو خود کو مسلمان کہہ سکتا ہے اور نہ ہی ایسا کوئی نشان استعمال کر سکتا ہے، جس کا تعلق اسلام سے ہو۔

Pakistan: Khatm-e Nubuwwat sympathisers attack Ahmadi mosque in Chakwal on prophet Mohammad’s birthday

Pakistan: Khatm-e Nubuwwat sympathisers attack Ahmadi mosque in Chakwal on prophet Mohammad’s birthday

After gaining control of the place of worship, the attackers allegedly burnt articles inside the building, including carpets. They also washed the building to bring it “under the influence of Islam.”

LAHORE: A charged mob of around 1,000 people, which besieged an Ahmadi place of worship in Chakwal, Punjab was dispersed by police and army personnel on Monday.

At least one Ahmadi, who was present inside the mosque, passed away from cardiac arrest, whereas the protesters claimed six of their fellows were injured in the cross firing.

Sayed Sibtul Hasan Shah, who led the protest, said the campaign has “succeeded as Ahmadis have been driven out of the mosque”. Ahmadis, he claimed, opened fire on them from inside the worship place.

Those present at the place of worship locked the building from inside and refused to concede control of the structure until police managed to prevail on them.

Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya spokesperson Saleemudin told The Express Tribune that local clerics had been asking the Ahmadiyya community of Dalmial to handover control of Baitul Zikr to them.

After their demand fell on deaf ears, a large group of men, who took out a rally in connection with Eid Miladun Nabi festivities, ventured towards the place of worship armed with batons and weapons, he said.

The JA spokesperson said the mob began raising anti-Ahmadi slogans upon reaching the site. He added that around 40 members of the Ahmadiyya community locked the building instead of vacating it.

Upon discovering this, the protesters started pelting stones at the building and resorted to aerial firing, Saleemuddin said.

DPO Munir Marth remained unavailable for comments.

After gaining control of the place of worship, the attackers allegedly burnt articles inside the building, including carpets. They also washed the building to bring it “under the influence of Islam.”

“It was a beautiful place of worship place constructed 100 years ago,” the spokesperson for the community said.

The Punjab government tweeted, “As per the details, a misunderstanding developed between the two groups. Home Department is vigilantly following up the issue.”

The security of Ahmadi places of worship is tightened during Eid Miladun Nabi celebrations in case of any untoward incident owing to some instances of hate speeches during the month. Heavy contingents of police are deployed at their two major places of worship in Lahore at Garhi Shahu and Model Town. Both places of worship were attacked in 2010.

It is also pertinent to mention that since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced the naming of the QAU’s National Center of Physics after noble laureate Abdus Salam, a new hate campaign has been initiated against Ahmadis by right wing elements, demanding the PM rescind the directive.
