TLP members threaten to destroy pre-partition Ahmadiyya worship place

The Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) recently threatened to destroy the minarets of a historic worship place of the Ahmadiyya community in Daska region of the country.

The worship place, located in the old Daska city, was built before Partition by Sir Zafarullah Khan, a member of the Pakistan Movement and the first foreign minister of the independent nation, reports Dawn News.

According to the district police, the wor­ship place was next to Khan’s house and its minarets were hardly visible. There is no board or inscription of a mos­que on the worship place — an act outlawed in the Pakistan Penal Code, the newspaper reported.

The group put up banners across the city and even urged people to join it by posting messages on social media platforms.

Scores of TLP supporters gathered on Thursday and threatened to demolish the minarets of the worship place, reports Dawn News.

They claimed the minarets were illegal and in violation of laws introduced during the military government of Gen Ziaul Haq in 1984.
