Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

A violent attack in broad daylight on a house in Murh Balochan in District Nankana Sahib Punjab left one Ahmadi 31-year-old Tahir Mehmood dead and 3 others injured. The attack happened when members of one family gathered to offer Friday prayers at their own house. When they finished and were coming out, a teenager opened fire at them.

Dr Tahir Mehmood and his father, Tariq Mehmood, and two of his relatives were shot. Tariq Mehmood is in critical condition, while the other two injured are out of danger. Tariq Mehmood Sahib is 55 years old and is receiving treatment for life-threatening injuries.

The spokesperson of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Pakistan, Saleem-ud-Din Sahib, offered his condolences on the death of Tahir Mehmood Sahib. He also requested to remember Tariq Sahib in prayers as he is in critical condition as well as prayers for the other two injured and the rest of the family who are extremely traumatised.

Saleem-ud-Din Sahib also highlighted the fact that there has been a wave of anti-Ahmadiyya hate campaigning and instigation to violence in these areas. At some events, speakers openly incited participants to kill Ahmadis. In the past few months, members of the Ahmadiyya Community have increasingly been targeted because of their faith. At the same time, the government has turned a blind eye to such activities.

This is the fourth Ahmadi to be killed because of his faith in just four months. There are many other incidents of violence where Ahmadis were injured or faced the serious loss of property. It is time that the government of Pakistan reigns in the hate mongers that are operating with impunity. At the same time, the government has to implement its own laws about hate campaign on social media, which is extensively used for this purpose.
