Terror group Lashkar-e-Tayyaba have added a local president of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to their hit list, it is learnt from a periodic news report issued by the community's London headquarters.

Mr Ijaz Mahmood who leads the local chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Mandi Bahauddin, a city in central Punjab, it the latest victim to face open death threats from the banned terrorist group.

"The local mosque of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is said to have been watched by local youths and a middle-aged man attempted to storm the building, asking for Mr Mahmood," the Ahmadiyya Persecution News report said.

TV channel airs death threats against Ahmadis

Islamic fundamentalism and Islamic extremism finds support in the Pakistani media, helping them to start easy hate campaigns against Ahmadis.

A series of pre-recorded speeches inciting violence against the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community were recently aired by Bedari, a private TV channel in Pakistan.

The hate speeches, first recorded in the Punjab town of Sargodha during an anti-Ahmadi conference in August 2015, openly called for the Ahmadis' murder, the report said.

"Mirzais [derogatory term for Ahmadi Muslims] are infidels and must be killed," a speakers is heard saying, according to the Ahmadiyya Persecution News. "We announce war against them. We will shoot them in their heads.”

Ahmadis in Pakistan face problems in their businesses and work places with constant threats of violence, harassment, and abuse.
