ISI Chief: Punjab govt led by CM Shahbaz protected the Deobandi terrorists who massacred Ahmadis in Lahore

On May 28, 2010, Takfiri Deobandi terrorists (operating as Sipah Sahaba ASWJ-LeJ and Taliban) killed at least 93 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim sect and injured around 100 others in attacks on two Ahmadi mosques during Friday prayer services in Lahore.

In the leaded OBL report published by Al Jazeera, it has been revealed that according to ISI’s Chief General Pasha, PML-N led government of the Punjab province (a political ally of Sipah Sahaba ASWJ-LeJ) protected the terrorists involved in Ahmadi massacre:

“The situation was increasingly becoming true of Lahore and other cities. In Lahore police protected those who attacked ‎#Qadianis last year (2010) and even directed them to the hospital where the wounded were being treated.The provincial Govt. had been informed of the situation but it took no heed of the advice and information provided by ‎#ISI no guards were assigned by to the hospital as venal political influence intervened everywhere.” General Pasha, OBL Report, Page 208 para 1

Although members of religious and sectarian minorities Shias, Christians, Ahmadis, Hindus and their places of worship have been attacked by Takfiri Deobandi groups (Sipah Sahaba, Taliban) on an almost regular basis in Pakistan, this was one of the bloodiest incidents in recent memory. After the attack on Ahmadi community and the Joseph Colony incident where 100-plus houses and shops of Christians were ransacked, looted and set ablaze by Takfiri terrorists, religious and sect minorities of Punjab, are worried for their safety. The situation on the ground is very uncertain for them since sectors of the media appear free to propagate hatred against non-Muslims and non-Deobandis, while terrorists freely roaming across Punjab.

Meanwhile, the provincial government of Punjab is still maintaining close relations with militant groups while the pro-Islamist judiciary is releasing militants.

Various media reports suggest that Pakistan Muslim League (N) nourishes the banned outfits in Punjab and recently in Punjab Budget 2013-14 it includes millions for Wahhabi terrorist group Jamaat-ud-Dawa aka LeT. Malik Ishaq Deobandi, the self confessed killer of Shias enjoyed Punjab government’s financial assistance and in election 2013 Lashkar-e-Jhangvi terrorists contested on PML-N tickets.

Now, Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha in his recent interview admitted, and criticized the provincial leaderships of the Punjab government, claiming the Punjab police had “protected those who attacked the Ahmadis on May 28, 2010.” According to the report, the former ISI chief claimed the police even directed the militants to the hospital where the wounded were being treated. “The provincial government has been informed of the situation but it took no heed of the advice and information provided by the ISI,” the report quotes Pasha as saying. In May 2010, members of the homegrown Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (an alias of ASWJ-LeJ Deobandi terrorists) attacked Ahmadi mosques in Lahore killing 94 people and injuring over 100. Gunmen also attacked a hospital where the injured were being treated the same day.

  • first of all make it clear in ur mind that ahmadis r not muslims and their place of worship can not be called Masjid

    • Islam does not give the singular right to ANYONE, to decide who is and who is not a Muslim. If Mr Usman disagrees, may he quote a reference from the Quran in support of his views!

    • By constitution of Pakistan 1977, Ahmadis are non-Muslims, “they can’t call themselves Muslim” and preach as Muslim, can’t call their worshiping places as “Masjid”.
      Rest they are minorities of Pakistan (like Hindus/Christians) and we should take-care of them. Even if they are not following the law of the land, nobody is allowed to kill them just because of their (false) believes !

      • Mohtram Äam Awam sahib,

        Mr. Abdul Basit talked about a Quotation from Quran & Ahadees, com to that point, with due apology state has no right at all to decide about the faith of their citizens – you may not find any example of it in history. Illegal constitution of any country does not mean that it is right. Please revist Islam teaching if you have any doubts. It is a matter between a human being and God and God is the best judge 🙂

      • This constitution is self contradictory.
        Although constitution CANNOT decide faith of others but anyway if you insist.

        It gives us(Ahmadis) right to profess,practice and propagate our beliefs (chapter1 Article 20 ) 🙂

  • Janaab Aam Awam sahib,
    Qazi Shureh (the Qazi of the time who was appointed by Hazrat Umar RA) had given the fatwa sanctioning the killing of Imam Hussain. You should accept that as well!

  • – “Ahmadis are Muslims, If They Say They are Muslims and No One, Not Even the Sovereign Legislature, has the Right to Say Otherwise.” – Muhammad Ali Jinnah, 05 May 1944.

  • Who is muslim? God is judge of that. If these ” jahil” mullahs and their followers stop playing God, there is hope for Pakistan. If an AHMADI wants to become ” sarkari muslim” , which sect should he join? Please let me know who is true follower of Mohammad (saw)? I can tell you this much that AHMADIES never got blamed for any terrorist activity. May God let you enjoy the blessings of ramzan. Amen

  • I have only one argument for those who quote the constitution of Pakistan as support to their Argument that Ahamdis are not Muslims and cannot call there places of worship Masjid. I ask them, Do they follow the constitution in all other facets of their lives? do they NOT break signals? do they pay taxes? and most importantly was the constitution made by God and thus cannot be wrong?…..

  • and most importantly. if u do not want to accept Ahamdis as muslims..don’t. they have never asked for your acceptance or rejection anyways but only answer this…does their “not being muslims in ur eyes” degrade them from the level of human as well.?. if your answer is yes, the congratulations, you deserve to live in this Pakistan of today and be warned, if today it is Ahamdis, Hindus, Shias etc…tomorrow it can be you and your families.

  • It is the month of Ramadhan! I will take this opportunity to say Ramadhan Mubarak to all Muslims across the world.

    May God guide all these individuals that have uneducated opinions towards a community which preaches and practices nothing more than peace, tolerance and humility towards all walks of life.

    God bless Islam-Ahmadiyyat!

  • The civilized world is thankful to Hazrat Mirza Gulam Ahmad Sahib for cancelling Jihad that is tool in the hands of hate mongers against the civilized world.
