  Terrorist attacks on Ahmadi Mosques in Pakistan

  Earlier today two mosques belonging to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Lahore 
were attacked by terrorists. The mosques were the Baitul Nur Mosque in Model 
Town and the Darul Zikr Mosque in Gharishaw.

  Although it is not yet clear what the exact numbers are, it is being reported 
that dozens of Ahmadis have been killed, many more injured. Ahmadi witnesses 
are saying that the mosque is covered in blood.

  The attacks are the culmination of years of un-policed persecution of the 
Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, which is a minority sect in Pakistan. In 1974 
legislation was passed that declared Ahmadis to be `non-Muslim' and in 1984 
further legislation was passed in which the practice of the faith was outlawed. 
At regular intervals since then Ahmadis have been attacked but today's attack 
is the most cruel and barbaric. All Ahmadis, who are based in 195 countries, 
are peace loving and tolerant people and yet they are continually targeted by 
extremist factions.

  During his Friday Sermon at 1pm today the Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat 
condemned the terrorist attacks.

  His Holiness Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

  "Today two our mosques in Lahore were attacked by extremists. At the moment 
we do not have full details of what has happened. It is clear though that a 
number of our Ahmadis have been killed and many others have been injured.

  These people had merely come to the mosque to offer their Friday prayers and 
yet became victims of a heinous terrorist attack. May God grant patience to the 
bereaved and elevate the status of those who have been martyred."

  Further details will be issued by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat at regular 

  UPDATE - May 28th

  In response to the terrorist attacks that took place at two Ahmadi mosques in 
Lahore earlier today, His Holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has issued the 
following statement:

  "The terrorist attacks that occurred today at two of our mosques in Lahore 
were completely barbaric and alien to all forms of humanity.

  These attacks took place in mosques which are places of worship and at the 
time of the Friday prayers which all Muslims know is a holy and sacred time. No 
true Muslims could ever countenance such attacks, such cruelty and such 
barbaric behaviour. No form of terrorism has any place in Islam and thus those 
who were behind these attacks may justify their acts in its name, but let it be 
clear they are Muslim only in name and never in deed.

  The situation in Pakistan is extremely grave. For decades Ahmadi Muslims have 
not been able to live in peace, in fact they live their lives in constant 
danger. In 1974 Ahmadi Muslims were declared `non-Muslim' by the Government of 
Pakistan and then ten years later the infamous Ordinance XX was adopted which 
criminalised all forms of Ahmadi worship and the practice of its faith.

  These laws effectively legitimised the exclusion and persecution of our 
Jama'at in Pakistan. Ever since, extremists have taken advantage and targeted 
Ahmadis. Despite this cruelty Ahmadis have remained loyal citizens of Pakistan 
and have never shown any form of civil disobedience.

  At this time we do not know the full extent of what has happened. However it 
is clear that dozens of Ahmadis have been killed and many others have been 
injured. I pray that Allah may grant patience to all those who have been left 
bereaved and grant an elevated status in Paradise to those who have been 
martyred. May God restore to health those who have been injured.

  The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at is a peace loving true Muslim Jama'at. Thus 
there will be no improper reaction from any Ahmadi. Our salvation lies in our 
supplications to God Almighty and we believe that He has, and always will, help 
us. No terrorist and no government can ever stop the progress of our Jama'at 
because it is a Divine organisation.

  May Allah protect all good natured people from the evil acts of those opposed 
to peace."
