The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community today laid to rest its 94 victims from the May 28 horrific terrorist attack at their two Mosques in Lahore, Pakistan. The Pakistan Taliban claims responsibility for this brutal attack with continued threats against the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

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"
