An 82-year-old Ahmadi man was gunned down in the Sheikh Mohammadi area of Peshawar on Sunday. The incident has been termed faith-based killing by the Ahmadi community’s spokesperson.

The slain man was reportedly visiting his daughter when he was attacked by armed men who shot him at close range. He died at the spot.

Targeted killing of the Ahmadi community members in Peshawar has seen an increase in the past few months. Earlier in September, a 60-year-old Ahmadi shopkeeper was killed for his faith. The community representatives had noted that the ongoing violence against them is linked to hateful campaigns on social media.
