The Voldemorts of Pakistan..

A few days ago Hamza Ali Abbasi came to limelight when he asked if the state has the authority to decide one’s religion. He further cleared his stance by raising his voice for the basic rights of Ahmadis. As a norm in this country, whosoever speaks up for Ahmadis, is labelled as an Ahmadi or Qadiyani. Hamza was also declared as an Ahmadi and was welcomed by death threats along with filthy abusive language. The whole scenario becomes more intense when a renown cleric issued a Fatwa against him while being a guest on a live TV show. Ironically, this cleric was applauded by the host and audiences of the show.
The cleric further incited people to take action against Abbasi for challenging the blasphemy laws against the Ahmadiyya Muslim community by declaring: ‘The honor of this nation is very much alive… If the law does not take any action, Muslim themselves are ready to do so. It is a law in the Pakistani Armed Forces that anyone who commits treason should be shot on that very spot. If this is the rule of an army, is my prophet not even worth of this much dignity?… This law is a part of Pakistan’s constitution, how dare he speak against this?’ And this was his fault that he dares to speak. No Molvi sahab, it’s not Hamza’s voice that needs to be shut, it’s your venomous and extremist views.
Majority of the country follow these clerics blindly, what if someone kills him? Who will be responsible then? Apparently it’s the state’s responsibility to protect the life of its citizens yet no protection is given to Abbasi and no action has been taken against the hate monger who always spit venom against Ahmadis and people who speak up for themselves.
According to the same cleric Hamza should be killed as he challenged the Ahmadiyya and blasphemy laws ( though they are not mention in the Holy Quran)  so with that logic every single Muslim living in west should be killed for challenging Islamophobes. And if this happens how will you react apart from destroying your own property and protesting against the state? So why in Ahmadiyya case people are not allowed to discuss them? Why whoever speaks for Ahmadis, declared Ahmadi too? Why Ahmadis have become the Voldemort of Pakistan? Why no one dares to speak for them apart from some sane voices?
