Chenab Nagar/Rabwah -- Three members of the Ahmadiyya community belonging to the same family were attacked yesterday on 11th October, 2015, resulting in two of them being seriously injured.

According to details, residents of Gulshan Iqbal Karachi, Saleem Rafaqat (55) and his two nephews, Moaaz Ahmad (20) and  Shahmir Ahmad (17) were returning home in their car after offering Isha prayers at the Ahmadiyya mosque when two unknown persons standing near the gate of their house opened fire on them.

All three were injured, two seriously, and they were shifted to hospital soon after the attack.

Two bullets struck Salim Rafaqat, one in his shoulder and the other struck his spine.

Shahmir Ahmad is still in critical condition due to the bullet lodged in his stomach. He remained on assisted breathing with ventilator in ICU.

One bullet grazed the head of his nephew, Moaaz Ahmad who received first aid and was discharged from the hospital. 

It is of note that on 21st March earlier this year an Ahmadi young man, Nauman Najam was also the victim of sectarian killing in the same general area.

Spokesman of the Ahmadiyya community, Saleem Uddin, has expressed his grief and sorrow over the incident and said that hate literature against Ahmadiyya community is being published and distributed continuously.

:It has become the great danger for the lives of Ahmadis," Saleem Uddin said.

It was clearly mentioned in National Action Plan instituted earlier this year, the Ahmadiyya statement says, that action will be taken against literature and speech promoting hatred, the Ahmadiyya press release stated. "But it is sorry to say that extremists are making negative propaganda against Ahmadis."

"Terrorists take great advantage of these propaganda and play with the lives of Ahmadis," the statement added.

Saleem Uddin demanded authorities to identify and arrest the attackers on urgent basis and punish them in accordance with the law.
