The plight of the Amharas in Ethiopia raised at the United Nations

On June 30, 2022, in Geneva, the United Nations Human Rights Council held an Interactive dialogue on the oral briefing of the International Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia. Ms. Kaari Betty Murungi, Chairperson of the UN Commission of Human Rights Experts on Ethiopia exposed the work progress of the Commission on the human rights situation in Ethiopia.

International Human Rights Committee and CAP Liberté de Conscience two international NGOs have been denouncing for years the persecutions suffered by the Ahmadyya community in the world and more particularly in Pakistan.

It is nauseating to let the world know that the Government and the Police force in Pakistan have descended into such humiliating acts as desecrating the graves of Ahmadi Muslims. The Government sponsored persecution of Ahmadis is rampant and the life of Ahmadis is made hell by denying them all their basic civic and human rights. The Government would not leave Ahmadis alone even after they are buried.

On February 4th & 5th 2022, on an unethical demand of the opponents the Police desecrated 45 tombstones of the Ahmadiyya Graves in Ahmadiyya Graveyard in Premkot, District Hafizabad. Pictures of some desecrated tombstones and graves can be found below.

The Persecution carried out against the Ahmadiyya Community in Pakistan is not only limited to those who are alive, but the Ahmadis that have passed away are also not safe in their graves.

The illegal act taken by the DPO Hafizabad Police against the Ahmadiyya Community in Pakistan is not only an act of violation of basic Human Rights, but also it is an act that has further dimmed the face of our beloved country Pakistan in the eyes of the International Community.

The world community must take serious notice of such distressful acts of delinquent behaviour against humanity. These must be stopped. These are unacceptable.

On July 13, 2021, UN human rights experts expressed their deep concern over the lack of attention to the serious human rights violations perpetrated against the Ahmadiyya community around the world and called on the international community to step up efforts in bringing an end to the ongoing persecution of Ahmadis.

IHRC and CAP LC strongly urge the international community to impress upon the Government of Pakistan to honour its responsibility to provide effective protection and freedom of religious practice to Ahmadis and that perpetrators of such vicious attacks should be brought to justice, to bring its laws and practices in conformity with international standards as ordained by Article 20 and United Nations Universal.
