India-based think-tank moves US and UN on plight of Ahmadiyyas in Pakistan

New Delhi: India-based think-tank Usanas Foundation has approached the key decision makers in the UN and USA who deal with human rights and religious freedom to highlight the plight of Ahmadiyyas in Pakistan, media reports said.

"The gradual increase of the hatred and abuse towards religious minorities in Pakistan has reached to a level that we can call it genocide. Pakistan is moving towards deliberate and systematic destruction of the Ahmadiyya community. In the letter we have explained how Pakistan's legal framework has systematically discriminated and established the foundations for the destruction of the minority communities in the country," the letter was quoted by Goa Chronicle.

"The problem with the extremism that the government has injected into people are not only specific to Ahmadiyas. It is hatred and violence towards anyone that is non-Muslim. Today it is Ahmadiyas but this hatred is a shape shifter that can easily be transformed into hatred towards any other religious minority in Pakistan," read the letter.

"Pakistan needs an independent and inclusive national human rights institution, and not an exclusionary government- controlled one," the letter said.

"Excluding Ahmadis from the NCM is just another latest sign of its deeply discriminatory policies towards Ahmadis. As long as the discriminatory laws against Ahmadis and other religious minorities remain on the books, the Pakistani government will be seen as a persecutor of minorities and an enabler of abuses," the letter mentioned.

"As long as people feel that Ahmadis and other religious minorities do not have adequate protection, both physical and legal, people would kill them," read the letter.

The think-tank sent the letter to the UN and USA on July 16 where they also raised the killing of innocent civilians in Kashmir by Pakistan-sponsored terrorists.
