Pakistani writer calls Ahmadis ‘worthy of death’

Pakistan’s writer and director Khalil-Ur-Rehman Qamar on Wednesday labeled the country’s minority Ahmadis ‘worthy of death’ during an interview with Parvez Jamil Mir.

Qamar made the remarks while answering a question on the inclusion of Ahmadis in Pakistan’s National Commission for Minorities. He said:

“They should accept that they are Infidels, then we will include them as a Minority, I have no objection to that.

But if you challenge the concept of Khatm e Nabuwat while posing as a Muslim, then you Sir are not allowed, Then you are Worthy of Death They should accept that they are a Minority.”

Responding to a follow-up question by PJ Mir, Qamar denounced Ahmadis for claiming to be Muslims, he said:

“There are minorities here, like Sikhs, Hindus, Christians and they are given equal respect as citizens of Pakistan, So [to] get that respect as citizens of Pakistan, [They should] not claim that they are Muslims”
