Report on the Situation of Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan

“The HRCP views the violent riots in Chak Sikandar as one of the gravest incidents of its nature in the history of Pakistan. Apart from the religious persecution of a minority community by elements having differences with it, the failure of the local administration administration to prevent violence while there was time, to afford the victims of violence prompt access to medical aid and legal remedies reveal a dangerous set of affairs.”
Human Rights Commission of Pakistan

Among the worst of violent incidents were those at Chak Sikandar on 16th July 1989 and Nankana Sahib on 12 April 1989. These were not the only violent incidents but the following documentation illustrates a typical pattern in violence against Ahmadis: violence often occurs with the knowledge of the authorities who aid and abet it and then refuse any aid to the victims.

The reports of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) are linked to this document. They have been copied without permission. In both incidents the HRCP concluded that the failure of the local law enforcement authorities to perform their duties impartially was largely to blame for the severity of the incidents.

The HRCP also noted with regret that the government of the Punjab (then led by Mian Nawaz Sharif) had failed to provide any relief to the victims of violence and had even justified it.
