Extremists vandalise and damage an 11th Ahmadi Muslim mosque this year

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Karachi experienced yet another targeted attack. This is the second mosque desecrated in the last ten days and the 11th during the year 2023.

A group of extremists removed the minarets of the Bait ul Mubarak mosque, located on Drig Road.

On 24 July, around 12-13 individuals gathered near the Ahmadi Muslim mosque at around 3:45 pm. They placed a ladder against the wall and climbed to the top of the mosque, whilst hiding their faces.

Attempts were made to contact the police, but unfortunately, they could not be reached in the moment.

In the meantime, the attackers proceeded with their destructive act, demolishing the minarets and leaving behind hateful writings of “Qadianis are infidels bound for hell” on the boundary walls of the mosque. The attackers fled the scene before the arrival of the police.

Additionally, there is an upcoming protest by extremists targeting Ahmadi Muslim mosques on the
28 July, which coincides with the Islamic holy day of the 10th of Muharram. This protest has been publicised with numerous announcements and posters in Jhelum district (see below), emphasising that all Ahmadi Muslim mosques in the area must be desecrated on that day.

It is distressing to witness repeated attacks on Ahmadi Muslim mosques, and the lack of security
provided to the Ahmadi Muslim Community is deeply concerning.
