In Pakistan, an Ahmadi (one who belongs to the Ahmadiyya Muslim community) has been accused of “blasphemy” just for associating himself with the Prophet of Islam on a hereditary basis. Human rights activist Senge Sering from Pakistan-occupied Gilgit-Baltistan (POGB), currently residing in the United States, says “…if non-Muslims consider Islam as a religion that promotes racial discrimination and bigotry, then Muslims should not be displeased by it. This is entirely a personal and individual act.” Ahmadis in Pakistan have often come under religious religious persecution and discrimination. Pakistan is not only a hell for Ahmadiyyas but also for other minorities. Physical assault like beating and torture on the Ahmadiyyas and other minorities has become a routine practice in Pakistan and their government institutions.
