Not unlike other political parties, some intolerant and sectarian minded people are also found in Pakistan Peoples Party. One such person is Babar Awan, VP of PPP, who is notorious for his hate speech against Ahmadi Muslims.
Babar Awan has some flatterers on Twitter and facebook, some of whom are themselves Ahmadi phobes. For example, one sectarian beast who claims to be a PPP supporter is Ahmad Nadeem Gehla who is extremely disliked by everyone including PPP workers because of his abusive, intolerant and sectarian attitude.
Clearly this type of logic leads to stereotyping, hate speech and a false pretext for hate speech.
This is an example of Gehla’s refined hate speech against Ahmadi Muslims:
On Twitter, Gehla wrote:
NA speaker approved opening secret record declaring Ahmedis as minority, hopefully Ahmadi friends stop crusade against PPP. They are also annoying people. They curse PPP all the time and end up being harassed by bigots of JuD & PMLN associates LeJ.
On Facebook, Gehla and his friends spit venom against Ahmadis and also cursed Mansoor Ijaz due to his faith.
We condemn all forms of hate speech against Ahmadi Muslims and any other sect or faith. We also believe that it was a major crime of the PPP as well as other parties in Pakistan’s parliament in 1974 to declare Ahmadis as non-Muslims. We believe that the burden is now upon the PPP to reverse the unjust legislation against Ahmadi Muslims, and reform Pakistan to a secular state, free from sectarian and religious biases.
