Chandigarh: THE ANNUAL Jalsa Salana congregation of the Ahmadiyya community began on Monday in Qadian in the border district of Gurdaspur, but without the customary participation of delegates from Pakistan.

Last year, as many as 6,000 Pakistanis took part in the congregation, which brings together members of the community from across the world.

This year, according to community representatives in India, visas were issued to over 5,000 Pakistani Ahmadiyyas but not a single person has come.

“I think the internal situation of the Ahmadiyya community in Pakistan may be one of the reasons for community members to stay away from the event. Recently, a raid was conducted at our community headquarters,” Tariq Ahmad, spokesperson of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jaamaat India, told The Indian Express.

  1. Qadian is a sacred place for all the Ahmadi's in the World.Every year thousands of Ahmadi Muslims around the world visit this holy place and refresh their faith.
    Ahmadi Muslims are very fortunate that they have Khilafat amongst them.
    And these actions of Pakistani governments cannot lower our morales.
