Ahmadi Muslim Yunusjan Abdujalilov was murdered December 2015Â in front of his home in the village of Kashkar Kyshtak in Osh Region of Kyrgyzstan. Police arrested sixÂ members of the Kyrgz branch ofÂ Jamaâ€™at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, a religious extremist movement affiliated with ISIS in Syria.
On the night of 22ndÂ December 2015 unknown assailantsÂ shot YunusjanÂ while he was talkingÂ to his neighborÂ outside his house, He died from his injuries on way to Nariman district hospital.Â Yunusjan had converted to Islam Ahmadiyya in 2007 and hadÂ 3 daughters and 1 son. At the time of his death his youngest childÂ was only 3 months old. On Tuesday 25th December 2015 PoliceÂ detained a group of six people, two of whom are citizens of Uzbekistan, and four â€“ Kyrgyz. The attackers revealed to the Police that they killed the former teacherÂ on the orders of their â€œEmirâ€ of Syria. The Emir Sirozhidin Mukhtarov (nickname Abu Saloh) was a former deputy Imam of the village but around a year ago left Kyrgyzstan to join the fight in Syria. The attackers further said that that the Emirâ€™s hostility towards Yunusjan was due to his affiliation with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
According to police, Denis Parpiev a resident of the Osh regionÂ confessed to theÂ murder of 37-year-old resident of Kara-Suu. During an interviewÂ to one of the tvÂ channels, ParpievÂ confessed to committing the crime.
â€œWe wanted only to frighten him, but then I received an order that it should be eliminated. I could not refuse.â€- he said. He also confessed that on 18 September 2015, with other accomplices, he attacked another Ahmadi in the same village, Ulugbek Turdakhunov. â€œHe survived but was severely beaten with iron rods and stabbed with a knife several times,â€ Ahmadis stated. His legs were broken.
The brother of the murdered Usupzhon Abduzhadilov saidÂ that his brother Yunusjan was very vocalÂ againstÂ extremist and terrorist organizations.
Describing the night of the murder he said:
â€Â That night I heard a loud bang,Â But I thought it was the children playing withÂ firecrackers. When the shooting happened myÂ brotherÂ was with a neighbor. But he managed to escape from the attackers. Now he is a witness in the case â€œ
Another Ahmadi who did not want to be identified said:
â€œWe are constantly receiving threats, but we try not to react aggressively. Earlier even someÂ mosques have discussed the possibility of killing members of the Ahmadiyya communityÂ â€œ,
According to some reports there are 100 members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the village Kashkar-Kyshtak and around a thousand in Kyrgyzstan. â€œChildren will ask where is their father. What will I tellÂ them. He just recently had a baby boy. We now do not even know what to do next, â€œ- she said.
The Ahmadiyya movement movement is disliked byÂ the local Wahabis and Salafis who consider its followers heretics.Â An imam at the local mosque in the village declared Ahmadi asÂ â€Â KafirÂ â€“Unbelieversâ€œ. The Imam said:
â€œAhmadis are to beÂ killed and you will receive a reward for each drop of their bloodâ€.
Ashirali Vahidov, another member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim CommunityÂ is actively working againstÂ â€œJihadi Recruitmentâ€Â in the village Kashkar-Kyshtak, the same village where Yunusjan was killed.
â€œSome MullahsÂ like Chubak-Hajji Jalilov, who are trained in Arab countriesÂ areÂ spreading radical ideology. We are witnesses toÂ these things. For example, I decided to getÂ my son to educated, and learn Arabic, for this IÂ sent him to Syria in 2006. Later after meeting and recognizing the community â€œAhmadiyyaâ€, I realized the difference between the two. Because of this, after 8-9 months of training myÂ son in Syria, I forced him to come back to Kyrgyzstan. They do notÂ teach science to students thereÂ but justÂ â€œJihadâ€, and it isÂ impossible for parents to get their children to to listen to them.Â The radicalsÂ train the youth to go to Syria, sellÂ them dreams of paradise and thenÂ transform them into a zombies, only to be taken away.â€œ
