Two Ahmadi Doctors' Bodies Were Found In A Dam And People Have So Many Questions

By Noor | 19 Mar, 2019

In most of the cases, intolerance is the cardinal feature which dictates the relationship between the minority and the dominant group. Minorities all around the world suffer and the incident of New Zealand is the most recent example. So, usually, minorities have it hard and this statement remains true in the case of Pakistan too.

 

The recent murder of two doctors has deeply saddened many who lamented that the Ahmadi deaths are not even acknowledged in Pakistan

According to reports, two Ahmadi doctors went missing upon their visit to their land in the Attock district. Later, the dead bodies of both the doctors were found in a dam located in the same tehsil. The bodies were dumped in the dam near the property and were covered with sand. The sources state, that the dead bodies had signs of torture and gunshot wounds.

It is being suspected that three of the employees working on the land are allegedly involved in the murder,

According to the police, the suspects have been arrested from Peshawar and Mansehra. Moreover, the police have denied the reports of the murder being a hate crime. It is being asserted by the authorities that the murder was a product of a conflict over property ownership.

 

People have commented how it’s a never-ending cycle of the persecution of Ahmadis in Pakistan

 

Many were shocked due to the silence of media regarding the Ahmadi apartheid and they urged the media to cover the entire incident

 

A meaningful comparison was drawn between the coverage of New Zealand incident and this murder of the doctors

They highlighted the fact that how minorities all over the world were being persecuted because of hate.

 

People asserted that the government should set their priorities right and pointed out the need for immediate and concrete steps on safeguarding minority rights

A few tried to unveil the ‘hypocrisy’ of the societal norms and values.

 

They even urged the Prime minister to AT LEAST condemn the attacks like he did with the New Zealand incident

 

However, there were some who pointed out that the murder might have been a product of land dispute and it should not be wrongly labeled as a hate crime

 

There were people who still thought the Ahmadi identity was relevant to the entire case

Minority groups should be accepted as an integral part of the society and the culture of tolerance should be proliferated. Moreover, coexistence should be seen as an important value to ensure peace in the society.
