Pakistan Christian Post Is Your Voice Since 2001

Letter To Editor

History of Ahmadiyya, Deobandi and Christianity

Akber A. Choudhry

Dear editors of the Pakistan Christian Post,

Your editorial on the Deobandi school of thought in Islam is not correct.

Trying to tie terrorism and Khatm-e-Nubuwwat as 'sub-groups' of Deobandi is not factual: Terrorists are terrorists and do not have a faith or persuasion - only the lust for political power. Khatm-e-Nubuwwat is not a group or organisation, but a cross-denominational activism to showcase what the Qadiani Ahmadiyya hide about their faith in order to exploit simple-minded people.

I would strongly urge you to ask Christian elders about the struggles that they had to go through to combat Mirza Ghualm Ahmad's vitriol against Christians, Jesus Christ and Christianity. In fact, in those late years of the 19th century, Muslims and Christians of the Punjab were united in this cause. Muslims and Christians have been historically close to each other and our organisation fosters this co-operation.

I would urge you to amend or retract the editorial, or at least add this to it.
