Punjab Assembly: Ahmedis will need to accept they’re non-Muslims in order to be included in the Minority Commission

The Punjab Assembly on Tuesday demanded the federal government to include Ahmedis in National Commission for Minorities on only one condition: if their chief submits in writing that the minority religious community accepts the constitution of Pakistan and their status as non-Muslims.

As reported by Dawn News, Provincial Minister Hafiz Ammar Yasir tabled a resolution in this regard that was adopted by the House unanimously. The resolution said: “This august House appreciates the federal cabinet for not including Qadianis in the Minorities Commission because neither the Qadianis recognise the Constitution of Pakistan nor they proclaim themselves as non-Muslims.”

On other minorities

The tabled resolution said that other religious minorities, including Hindus, Sikhs and Christians were given representation in the minorities commission without any objection, because none of them declare themselves as Muslims.

The resolution concludes with: The issue of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat is a red line for us. Nothing is dearer to us than protection of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat, protection of Namoos-i-Risalat (SAW), protection of Namoos-i-Ashab-e-Rasool, protection of Namoos-i-Ahle Baet, and protection of Namoos-i-Ummahat al-Momineen (Rizwanullah Ajmaeen). We’re ready to sacrifice everything for it and none must have any qualms about it
