British Parliamentarians asks Pakistan to stop discriminating Ahmadis

British Parliamentarians has warned Pakistan to take steps to protect the rights of Ahmadiyya community. If Ahmadis keeps getting hate and injustice in the society Pakistan can lost the aid from Britain permanently.  Taking part in a discussion in the House of Commons on “Persecution of Religious Minorities: Pakistan”, more than 15 MPs reminded the plight of Christians, Sikhs and Hindus along with that of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in the country to seek a review of aid.

Pakistan is one of the largest receivers of British bilateral aid, getting nearly £1.17 billion between 2011 and 2015. The MPs paid honor to Britain’s peaceful Ahmadiyya Muslim community and remembered Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s 1947 speech promising a secular Pakistan.

Siobhain McDonagh (Labour), who led the debate, said:

“The Ahmadiyya community is also denied the right to religious freedom and expression in Pakistan. On orders from the united religious clerics board, all works by that religious group are now banned in the region of Punjab.

“That includes books, CDs, periodicals and newspapers, and it means that hundreds of thousands of law-abiding Ahmadi Muslims in Punjab face police searches, criminal charges and up to five years in prison. Those texts are all religious, and their censorship is totally unjustified.”

Concentrating on the plight of women from minorities, Fiona Bruce (Conservative) said: “Following this debate, I hope that the UK government and those responsible for disseminating aid in Pakistan will pay particular attention to the plight of women and girls in religious minorities, because they are doubly at risk of discrimination, regardless of the faith they adhere to.”

She added: “They risk systematic abduction, extortion, hijacking, being held for ransom, trafficking, rape, forced marriage, forced conversions, and allegations of blasphemy…Women is treated as second class, but if they come from a minority group, they are third class citizens. For example, Hindu girls in Sindh and Christian girls in Punjab are abducted, raped, or forced to convert to Islam in the face of extreme pressure, including threats to them and their families.”

Siobhain McDonagh MP, is also Chair of UK All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

MPs also demanded the Pakistan Government to free 70-year-old Mr Abdul Shakoor, an Ahmadi seller from Rabwah who was imprisoned in January for 7 years under the country’s anti-terror laws and anti-Ahmadi laws for possessing copies of the Holy Quran and some religious books.
