It is with agonizing heart-rending grief that we come to you with the horrible news of the murder of a medical assistant ABDUL QADIR working in the Clinic of Dr. Bin Yameen in the Bazid Khel area of Peshawar, Pakistan.

On Thursday February 11 2021, at around 2 p.m. when the clinic staff was on break for lunch and afternoon prayers, someone rang the clinic doorbell and Abdul Qadir opened the door to answer the bell. He was instantly shot twice and fell at the doorsteps. He was taken to hospital but sadly succumbed to his injuries and died.

Abdul Qadir was a senior member of the clinic staff. He was 65 years old. He was very well respected in the local community and was always very kind and helpful to the patients.

We have been regularly informing the sober minded advocates and defenders of human rights, of the monstrous wave of persecution, torture, harassment, and target killings of Ahmadis because of their faith and belief, going on in Pakistan.

The Government, its judiciary and law & order maintaining agencies are not taking any notice of the atrocities upon the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Pakistan and the venomous clergy are at liberty to carry on their acts of butchery against Ahmadis.

You will be shocked to hear that just in recent months this is the eighth killing of an Ahmadi and the fifth one in Peshawar which is in the province under the rule of the Governing Party PTI. There are in addition countless fabricated cases filed in courts against Ahmadis and threats and acts of violence all over Pakistan.
