Ahmadi Muslims mourn death of four Community members, including two female minors and an unborn child
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA condemns in the strongest terms the July 27, 2014 terrorist attack on Ahmadi Muslims in Gujranwala, which is in Pakistan’s Punjab province. The targeted attack resulted in the deaths of Mrs. Bashiran Bibi (55), and her granddaughters Hira (7) and Kainat (8 months). A pregnant Ahmadi Muslim was injured and later miscarried her unborn child
In this targeted attack extremists set approximately ten homes ablaze. Local police were present but did not act to stop the act of terrorism, nor did they clear a path for the fire department to put out the blaze. The victims died of smoke inhalation and suffocation. This unprovoked attack is yet another example of how the authorities in Pakistan are aiding the persecution of Ahmadi Muslims, permitting extremists to continue attacks with impunity.
