Recently, a resolution named ‘Tahafuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat’ was unanimously passed by lawyers of Multan bar association. According to that resolution, no non-Muslim lawyer including Ahmadis will be able to participate in the bar elections of Multan.

The resolution was presented in a ‘Tahaffuz-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwwat’ conference organized by the lawyers of district bar association of Multan. The resolution stated that the lawyers contesting bar elections will also need to submit an affidavit to prove their faith of Islam. All the participants then took oath that they believed in the finality of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

At the end of the conference, books regarding the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were distributed among the lawyers.

This is not the first time that the minorities of Pakistan are made subject to discrimination systematically in Pakistan. Over the years, several laws have been introduced, including the ‘blasphemy laws’ that have persecuted a number of people belonging to religious minorities in Pakistan.

    It is a very bad step. I think the Multan Bar should reconsider the aftermath & repercussions of this discriminatory debar. There is no bar on non-Muslims in any other bar in the country. How can a bar take this foolish step?
