37 men arrested for attacking an Ahmadi place of worship last year have been granted bail on May 6 by the Lahore High Court. The vice-chairman of the Dulmial union council Fiyaz Ahmed Fiazi was among the main accused and was also granted bail.

On Dec 12 2016, participants of 12 Rabiul Awal procession attacked an Ahmadi place of worship. The incident claimed the life of a Muslim youth while three others sustained bullet injuries. An elderly Ahmadi stranded in the place of worship later passed away as a result of a heart attack.

The police had been reported to have detained as many as 2,800 to 3,000 people in link with the incident but has only been successful in arresting 67 Muslims and 4 Ahmadis, who were found guilty by a joint investigation team.

Both groups signed a peace agreement in February, where elders of the Muslim community, who were involved in the incident, claimed that certain ‘outsiders’ had incited them to take control of the Darul Zikr by force.

The Ahmadis of the village have also applied for bail to be granted for the four accused on their side before the LHC, but a date for the hearing is yet to be finalised.
