PTI info secy says Nadia Ramzan is daughter of Imran Khan’s friend and raises funds for charity projects

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has denied seeking the Ahmadiyya community’s support in the upcoming general elections after a video clip surfaced in the social media of a meeting between a party delegation and the Ahmadiyya spiritual chief in London recently.

According to the video, the support of the persecuted Ahmadiyya community was sought through a PTI delegation led by one Nadia Ramzan Chaudhry who met Mirza Masroor Ahmed, spiritual leader of the Ahmadiyya community.

In the video clip, Nadia Ramzan introduced herself as a London-based office-bearer of the PTI working in the Party’s Secretariat. During the meeting, the two sides discussed the upcoming general elections in Pakistan.

We had voted for Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but in return he declared us non-Muslim, Allah Almighty bestow you with success…we will think on the matter if PTI will do justice after coming into parliament,” responded Mirza Masroor when Nadia Ramzan asked for his support for PTI in the general elections.

Nadia enquired from Mirza what would be the outcome of the general elections, as the Ahmadiyya community believed in justice and equality and the PTI also believed in the same principle, the community would support which party and what would be Mirza’s directives to his followers?

Mirza said as far as casting vote was concerned, the Ahmadiyya community would vote for the party that was sincere with the country and believed in equality. He said, “The community has been declared as non-Muslims in Pakistan, we have a separate voters list which discourages the community from tendering votes.

During the meeting, Mirza said when Imran Khan was building his political party, he had sought the Ahmadiyya community’s support through one of his emissaries during Mirza’s visit to Pakistan. He said that no one talked about withdrawing the law declaring Ahmadis non-Muslims for fear of ‘Maulvis’.
At one instance, Nadia said the PTI’s manifesto ensured liberty to all religions and sects, to which Mirza enquired which party’s manifesto declared discrimination among Pakistani citizens?

“We will definitely vote for the PTI next time when the party does justice with us after coming into power,” Mirza added.

    I suppose the question of seeking the Ahmadi-Muslims support in these elections does not arise, when it is known that they will not vote according to the present system.

    Pakistani politicians are habitual to playing double game. They speak one thing when seated in the seat of authority and would talk differently when out of authority. But Imran Khan is doing this double-faced act even without any authority. For the last two decades IK is leading his ‘Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’
    and every one felt that he will do justice to all, including Ahmadis, who had been victims of the ruling party and very naturally some Ahmadi youth felt that they will also get ‘Insaf’(justice)when IK gets into power. But all such positive hopes died down when IK repeated what Mullah used to say that Ahmadis are ‘kafir, non-believer of Islam and hence remain as non-Muslims’. So, by this declaration,IK has denied Pakistani Ahmadis to name their faith and practice it as ordained by God in accordance with their basic rights and the most vital one, the freedom of human conscience. This means Imran khan’s ‘Tehreek-e-Insaf’ has become ‘ ‘Taareek-e-Insaf’ as far as members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community are concerned. This clearly implies that Ik, if voted to power, will not do positive type of politics of what he had been preaching for the last two decades. So this gross contradiction of not doing ‘Insaf’to Ahmadis of Pakistan is actually a U-turn, crash-landing of PTI and an immoral end of the game of double politics of ‘saying’ and ‘doing’ different things to please/displease different people at different times.
