Why is Pakistan against its Ahmadi community?

Captain (retired) Muhammad Safdar, who is ousted premier Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law and a member of the ruling Muslim League party, lashed out this week at the minority Ahmadi community in the country’s lower house of parliament.

He accused the religious group of conspiring against Pakistan and called for an action against them.

“These people [Ahmadis] are a threat to this country, its constitution and ideology,” Safdar said.

Safdar also asserted that he wanted to bring a resolution in the National Assembly (lower house of parliament) to put a ban on recruitment of Ahmadis in the armed forces.

“Because theirs is a false religion, in which there is no concept of jihad for Allah,” said Safdar.
