    Ordinance XX is a legal ordinance of the Government of Pakistan that was promulgated under the regime of General Zia-ul-Haq and is meant to restrict usage of Islamic terms and titles as well as religious freedom of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. This ordinance bars certain communities that are deemed non Islamic under Pakistani constitution to practice their faith and also disallowed certain minority to use any Islamic texts for praying purposes. Minorities like Ahmedis are not allowed to say Muslim greetings like Assalam Allaikum ( Peace be upon you ) or to read or write any verse of Quran.

    The ordinance debars Ahmadis from the use of any honorific titles and modes of address specific to the Prophetic community (such as the greeting "As-salamu alaykum" or reciting the Six Kalimas (shahada, etc.)), from building mosques and calling the Adhan (call to prayer), from undertaking Muslim modes of worship, from worshipping in non-Ahmadi mosques or public prayer rooms, and from making any citations from the Quran and Muhammad's hadith. Punishment for anyone convicted of doing any of the above is two years imprisonment. Ahmadi claim that the ordinance criminalises the everyday life of Ahmadis. reciting the Kalima (Muslim creed) and greeting with peace in the Muslims way is a criminal offence for Ahmadis in Pakistan.

    Yea none of us have acess to wiki...thank you for unearthing ground breaking discoveries!

    1stly, it is not written on one's forehead if they are Ahmediyya or shia or sunni or whatever so proving or even saying this is ridiculous esp since many even say salam to non Muslims and many Non Muslims around thee world are gifted the Quran or can buy it from book shops/ online:


    How is this happening when they have their own places of worship? :pop:

    Not all the 6 kalima are shahadah....And many of the everyday Muslims dont even know what the kalima are except prob the shahada so not sure who is gonna stop another from reciting something they themselves dont know :unsure:

    And how do indians get news of their mosque being set on fire when they are not allowed to have mosques? :o:

    1stly, soo many weird Muslims wont pray in another mosque....nothing new there

    2ndly, its not written on their heads nor do they have any marks/ symbols so whatever they do wont be questioned...or cant be based on their face alone!

    I think wiki says this more loudly than anyone

    Never heard of the rest...

    BTW, just for your info we also have a law to educate every child in Pakistan for free....not much of it takes place...We also have a law that rape victims dont need 4 witnesses but indians still cry about the 4 witness....wiki feeds you lot shit which you grow on...try talking and communicating like a human to know the truth instead of dwelling in things which feed your delusion!

    I never said they were non Muslim...Whatever the politicians do is their business....I feel no need to kill or bash anyone...Nor do I feel the need to rely on wiki to soothe myself ....pathetic move at its best!

    Whatever they believe and however they are...THEY ARE PAKISTANIS...They want to call themselves Muslims then Muslims they are who am I to point otherwise? Who are you to behave like a bigot and open a thread with wiki as your only cry?

    My advice to Ahmadis in Pakistan is to save money and get out of there as soon as possible. I'm not going to discuss this Nazi style law.

    To sarkari Muslims of Pakistan: Your feelings are hurt by the mere existence of Ahmadis, okay let Ahmadis get out of Pakistan so you can have a pure fascist Sunni state. Cheers.

    Nothing too much here.....even god has to be defined by some dictator's ordinance, just as muslims have been sought to be defined by this ordinance. Funny.

    Yes if a Mullah catches you read it, or for example you are sitting on a expensive land, the local Sunni population might get jealous so they will use the Ordinance to scare you away from your own house. All in all religion+real estate is a good business after all.

    No one is justifying anything...We are well aware our laws are skewed...I think if indians spent this much time trolling their own laws they would be more peace on your side!

    Not surprisingly, Ordinance XX has already been denounced by the United Nations Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities as a violation of human rights. The UN Sub-Commission, expressing its "grave concern" at the promulgation of Ordinance XX, found it openly violates the right to liberty and security of the person; the right to freedom from arbitrary arrest and detention; the right to freedom of thought, expression, conscience and religion; the right of religious minorities to profess and practice their own religion and the right to an effective legal remedy. The UN Sub-Commission alerted the UN Commission on Human Rights that there was a great potential of a mass exodus of Ahmadi Muslims from Pakistan due to their persecution. The SubCommission also asked that the Government of Pakistan "repeal Ordinance XX and restore the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons in its jurisdiction."

    Ahmadiya's are muslims? Oh in that case Jews are also of our belief since they believe in Abraham/Ibrahim.
