23 Ahmadi Students Expelled from Pakistani College
Faisalabad: Punjab Medical College (PMC) of Faisalabad, Pakistan, expelled 23 Ahmadi students Friday after three day long tension and a demonstration by the Jamiat-e-Ulama Islam students against the students of Ahmadiyya sect.
According to reliable sources, the extremist Jamiat-e-Ulama Islam students forced the college principal to expel the Ahmadi students, 15 male and 8 female.
The Jamiat-e-Ulama Islam blamed that the Ahmadi students were preaching their faith through distributing some pamphlets. The Ahamadiyya sect was outlawed in Pakistan in 1973 during Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto rule and then Gen. Ziaulahaq government banned them to call themselves Muslims.
The expelled students include Humaira Sadaf, Mansoora Samar, Mariam Mubarik, Sana Nisar, and Anas from the first year, Rubina Aslam, Kanwal Rehman, Hina Munnawar, Shamatul Amber, Kahsif and Haroon from the second year, Nosheen Zafar, Zubda Nasir, Hibatul Qadeer, Zakaullah, Dawood, Ihsan and Hassan from the third year, Zeeshan from the fourth year, and Rabia Shafique, Mansoora Ismail, Hibatul Hameed and Nabila Qudsia from the final year, reported The Daily Times Pakistani newspaper.
Ahmadis have regarded this as an act against the human rights.
