On the one hand the authorities speak of good governance, and on the other nothing is done to safeguard the rights of Ahmadis in Pakistan.

Two Ahmadis killed for their faith in the last ten days

Chenab Nagar -- The National Spokesperson of Jama’at Ahmadiyya, Pakistan, Salim udDin, issued the following statement after the murder of homeopathic practitioner, Dr Hameed Ahmad, who was killed outside his home in a religiously motivated attack on June 4, 2016:
"I am shocked and saddened at the news of Dr Hameed Ahmad’s murder. This is a pain that Jama’at Ahmadiyya has long had to get used to. Only recently on May 25, another Ahmadi, Mr Daud Ahmad, was killed in a similar targeted attack in Karachi.
"It is a cause of great concern to us that in the space of ten days, two innocent Ahmadis have been gunned down outside their homes. It seems that members of the community are again in the crosshairs of extremist groups. On the one hand the authorities speak of good governance, and on the other nothing is done to safeguard the rights of Ahmadis in Pakistan. Hate-speech against Ahmadis has become a matter of routine in the country and enables tragic events like this to take place.
"The National Action Plan (NAP) was meant to crackdown on hate-crimes but it seems that this isn’t the case when it comes to Ahmadis. I call on the authorities to apprehend Dr Hamid Ahmad’s killers  as quickly as possible and send out a clear message that attacks such as this will not be tolerated and dealt with in the harshest terms.
