Ahmadi Muslims in UK call for urgent action against hate
Members of a Muslim sect persecuted in Pakistan have called for action to prevent groups from peddling hate against them in the UK.
The Ahmadiyya community in the UK says it is being targeted through various media and in mosques and conferences by behaviour that it says amounts to religious hatred but is not caught by the definition of that offence under UK law.
The community moved its headquarters to the UK in the 1980s after the Pakistani government passed a law forbidding Ahmadis from calling themselves Muslims and curbing their religious practices.
