  1. Thank God the attack was thwarted but sadly three persons lost their lives including that brave police officer . Though I'm a Non-Ahmadi from Malaysia , I think the Ahmadis rights should be protected at all times and they must be allowed to practice their faith freely and in peace . So sad this type of things happened . The level of hatred towards these religious minority especially in Pakistan has again reached a sadly new low . The government should do something about this .
