23 AHMADIYYA STUDENTS EXPELLED FROM PUNJAB MEDICAL COLLEGE

23 AHMADIYYA STUDENTS EXPELLED FROM PUNJAB MEDICAL COLLEGE | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

All 23 Ahmadiyya Muslim students studying at the Punjab Medical College in
Faisalabad, Pakistan have been expelled for no other reason than their
membership of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, a Community based upon
teachings of peace, equality and tolerance.
Following pressure from members of the Islami‐Jamiat‐e‐Tulaba, a nationwide
student organisation in Pakistan, the Principal of the Punjab Medical College
issued a notice confirming that the 23 Ahmadiyya students had been expelled.
The justification for the expulsions was totally baseless and spurious. It is yet
another example of the cruelty that Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan have to
contend with. The twenty‐three students included eight males and fifteen
females. Four of the students, all female, were in their final year of college and
thus were only months away from qualification. The Press Spokesman of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community said:
“Recently the National Assembly of Pakistan made a submission to the UN
Human Rights Council in which it stated its commitment to investing and
supporting the education of its citizens, as well as safeguarding the rights of
all minority groups. It is thus most unfortunate that less than one month
later, this violation of basic human rights has been allowed. It is hoped that
this wholly unjust decision is revoked immediately.

The Ahamadiyya community, a minority religious community, is again facing systematic genocide from the militant religious groups in coming days particularly from the banned terrorist organizations that have made a joint strategy to force them to leave Pakistan. This campaign has been started from the garrison city of Rawalpindi, Punjab province, in the presence of heavy contingent of police, rangers and, of course, plain clothed men from notorious intelligence agency, the ISI.

The Lahore Bar association: Sectarian bigotry at the 'bar'

The Lahore Bar association:  Sectarian bigotry at the 'bar' | Human Rights and the Will to be free | Scoop.it

A couple of days ago the Lahore Bar Association managed to do what no other bar association has been able to do so far; they lowered their bar. They decided to ban all products by a company called SHEZAN from being served at court premises because apparently according to them SHEZAN is Ahmadi owned. Now you would think that being lawyers they would understand how logic works and how an argument should be shaped. You would think that a whole association made up of lawyers would realize that why banning stuff based on the manufacturer’s apparent religious affiliations is a bad idea. .....
