Ahmad was a leader of local Ahmadiyya youth association MKA Pakistan (Majlis Khuddamul–Ahmadiyya).
This is not the first religiously motivated attack on the family. In 2008 Imtiaz Ahmad’s uncle Seth Yousaf local president of the Ahmadiyya community was shot dead a day after after Pakistan’s most watched TV channel Geo TV aired a program in which an infamous hate preacher called for the murder of Ahmadīs.
Seth Yousaf’s son, Asif Daud, also escaped attempt on this life few months ago.
