U.S.-based Mehdi Ali Qamar was visiting Pakistan to do volunteer work at the Tahir Heart Institute.

Gunmen shot dead a doctor from the Ahmadi community on Monday, officials said, the latest attack on the besieged group.

Mehdi Ali Qamar, a 50-year-old heart surgeon normally based in the United States, was attacked as he visited a cemetery in Rabwah in Punjab province. Rabwah, also known as Chenab Nagar, has been considered the home of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community since 1948 when the community moved from Qadian, India to Pakistan following the creation of Pakistan in 1947.

“Two gunmen riding on a motorbike shot dead a cardiac surgeon, Dr. Mehdi Ali outside the Ahmadi graveyard in Chenab Nagar,” said local police official Ahmed Ali. He said the incident occurred early on Monday morning when the doctor was going to the graveyard with his family.

‘The assailants have fled the scene. We are looking into the incident. It seems to be a targeted attack,” Ali said.

Saleem Uddin, a spokesman for the Ahmadi community, confirmed the incident and said the doctor’s family escaped the attack unharmed.

The doctor was in Pakistan on a short visit to do voluntary work at the Tahir Heart Institute, a private institution that he himself helped build a few years back.

Well, killing maulvis doesn’t solve problems. I strongly condemn the attack. One question i have to all the ahmadiya community. Why dont you convert to real Islam? This self created Islam will just not do anything good in this world and hereafter. Please think about it and get your act straight.

hammad May 27, 2014 - 7:46 pm

You mean the real islam whose followers just murdered this Inocent man. No thanks…

What a stupid and callous comment. Islam and muslims are divided. They need messiah and Mahdi and who are you to decide about somebody faith. You are no god.

munadil fahad May 27, 2014 - 10:41 pm

In simple, True Islam means believe in Allah and last prophet Muhammad( pbuh) and pass your life as per teachings of Quran Hakim.

What do u mean by real islam.? we are true muslims alhamdullah and we need any certificate from u or any other

khurram naseer rana May 28, 2014 - 6:07 am

Ahmadiyya is real Islam. That’s not self created Islam. We follow the quran and the sunna and we always only obey what the Allah and His Holly prophet said. The holy prophet p.b. u.h had entered the people into the Islam but now a days mullah and Pakistan government is removing the people from Islam. I think you all are contractors of Islam.

Nayaaftt May 28, 2014 - 8:10 am

Real Islam??????? Which says kill any one …..THANK YOU

Mahmood A. Shahid May 28, 2014 - 2:48 pm

Jazak Allah for condemning this brutal act as far as concerned to the question you asking from Ahmadiya community do you know what Ahmadiyyat is? not from the literature of anti Ahmadiyya Molvis but from the Ahmadiyya literature. May I ask you about real Islam? which sect of Islam you think is real Islam which was not declared as Kafir by the other sects?
This is not the solution you are offering to Ahmadiyya Community. Every one has right to choose his beleif and others should have to respect it and no religion promotes violence and terrorism as the religion teaches tolerance and preaching of love for the mankind.
May Allah Almighty keep the soul of Shaheed in rest and peace as our beleif is that shaheed will never die and keep his blessings with the family of Shaheed. Ameen

Ali May 28, 2014 - 11:55 pm

The real Islam is belief in one Allah and last messenger of Allah i e Muhammad pbuh. There is no room for any other saint, prophet, leader or mirza ghulam etc. Its very simple. No need for any debates. Thanks for understanding. Once again i strongly condemn this brutal act as this is against the principles of Islam.

Ibrahim May 28, 2014 - 10:00 pm

Your telling ahmadies to join the so called “Real Islam”?

The real islam which has carried out attacks against ahmadies? the real islam that carried out attacks against christians? the real islam that tells its people that killing ahmadies will bring them heaven? the real islam which has created hatred for each other in their own islamic countries?

The whole point Islam teaches is forgiveness and serving the humanity and not hatred. Ahmadies follow the real teaching of given in Quran and by Prophet Muhamaad (saw) and that is why even after so many persecutions or attacks, ahmadies have never carried out any attacks nor any hatred towards anyone. Instead they have been building hospitals and schools and volunteering to serve humanity in almost every country.

If you do your OWN research instead of listening to mullah’s, you’ll find the real truth which mullahs don’t want you to find.

Nasir May 29, 2014 - 1:49 am

Who will decide what is real Islam? Does so called maulanas of this country representing real Islam? If yes I will never ever try to be converted to the real Islam representing by this kind of maulanas.
Ali if you would have time be neutral and try to study the literature and history of Ahmadiyya sect; you would find who are following real Islam

Zarif Ahmad May 29, 2014 - 2:21 am

Ali Sahib, First of all I thank you for condemning attack JazakAllho Khaira. I wonder which real Islam you are talking about, more than 73 sects. Halve you read their verdicts for each others. Allah does not like chãos or disorder and these so called Mullas are the worst butchers. Rasoolullah (p.b.u.h) in Hadith, said about them they are pigs and monkeys. Ours is not self-made Islam, it is as per prophecy of Holy Prophet Mohammad (p.b.u.h.) and as per secriptures of all the religions of the world. Please do Duaa and brows this webside. http://www.alislam.org Allah May guide us all Aameen.

aphtab May 29, 2014 - 12:20 pm

Which Islam sir ? Shia, Sunni, Brailvi or Deobandi; which one would you recommend to the poor Ahmedis. If you recommend Shia Islam, majority will have have a serious issue with that. Before you recommend anything first sort out which Islam will do.

Ali May 29, 2014 - 4:17 pm

La ilaha illila muhammad ur rasoolila . Plz read this and you will know what islam to follow . There is only one Islam where Muhammad pbuh is the last messenger.Anyone who believe that someone else is their last prophet is not a muslim. Lets not twist things and be honest and straight.

harris May 30, 2014 - 1:39 am

Sir this is Pakistani translation of kalma the word to word translation is, there is no God except ALLAH and MOHAMMAD s.a.w is his messenger. Get one Arabic lugat and check for your self

harris May 30, 2014 - 1:30 am

Sir with all due respect pls clarify ”ReaI Islam” their are 72 sects in islam deobandi, wahabi, ehlay tashai, suuni etc etc each declares other non Muslim they are bunch of people gourped together to to full fill the God’s promise that there will 72 sects in Islam and only one will be on right path, your lack of information made you believe its a self created Islam its not for fault because that’s what your molvi sahib told you pls visit alislam.org and do some research before you speak

Edge May 31, 2014 - 12:10 am

Still better than the “real islam” you talk about that allows killing of people based on their faith

Sophia June 2, 2014 - 5:43 pm

That’s like if a Christian asked you why you don’t you give up your religion because Christianity is the ‘right’ religion.
This is the real Islam. Everyone who’s converted to Ahmadiyyat has thought thoroughly about it and then made such a decision, despite the nonstop attacks that occur. Don’t you think if this was a ‘self created’ thing, people would leave when faced with such heavy persecution? This is one of the signs of true believers, they do not back down in the heat of a battle. We would rather die a million deaths than give up our faith in our Allah and stop believing in what He has ordained. Don’t worry, most of us have thought about it. In fact, most of us used to be one of you before converting to Ahmadiyyat. Tired of the lack of harmony, of the lack of leadership, of a lack of unity. Ahmadiyyat is a community, and the most attractive thing about it is the Khalifa who’s been appointed by Allah.
So dear brother, there are a million answers for your question; but the answer that most of us would probably give is that there’s this voice deep down inside in our hearts that has borne witness to the truth of this community and it won’t let us change our course, no matter the indecencies that we have to face.
And you’re right, killing maulvis won’t solve the problem. Killing only leads to more killing. We’re peace loving and believe that Allah will avenge our deaths, because He always has.

Ali June 4, 2014 - 12:27 am

Brother i just know u guys follow fake prophet whose name is mirza ghulam qadiani. Go on youtube and search urself and how many ppl left this so called religion bcz it has nothing to offer and is far away from Islam. Btw why ahmadiat is funded by jews and christian?

Zarif Ahmad June 4, 2014 - 7:42 pm

In the Name of Allah the Most gracious Ever Merciful
Dear Ali Salam, I think you have not read my above posting and gave another blame to Jamat Ahmadiyya Muslima. It seems Mullas have totally brainwashed you, and you are traped in the clutiches of Mullas, the Mullas named by Hazrat Khatamun-nabiyyeen (p.b.u.h) as pigs and monkeys. Please for the sake of Allah and his Messinger (p.b.u.h) come out of the clutiches of these butchers, have freedom from them I believe you are a good man, you have to be answerable to Allah yourself. By the Grace of Allah Ahmadi Muslimes has been established in 204 countries of the world, by the Grace of Allah The financial Sacrifices of Ahmadies by Chanda (contribution ) are also great, we need no Money from Jews or Chritians, just in USA our Annual budget by the Grace of Allah is in Millions of Dolars. Can you prove your statement. Our hand is by the Grace of Allah the upper hand and not hte lower hand. The treasures of Allah is suficiente for us. Alhamdo-lillah.

Terrorism, violence, hatred and killing innocent people are not the teaching of Islam. The fanatic group of Muslims is ruining the peaceful religion. Islam teaches or explained by clerics (Mullah) is the wrong interpretation of Islam. Whatever you say or do it should be benefited for humanity and not give the motive to kill innocent people. May Allah save Ahmadies and give wisdom to ignorant to follow the true teaching of Islam. http://www.alislam.org

maha May 27, 2014 - 11:32 pm

Actually you people do not know what Islam really is???Killing a single person means killing the whole humanity.We the Ahmadis never take revenge.we never set out strikes because we know the true teachings of Islam and we know that we have to answer in front of Allah on the Day of judgement.So it is better for all of you to refresh your knowledge about Islam that will help you and your generation.

Rana-inaam-ul-haq May 27, 2014 - 12:29 am

He was serving humanity as per teachings of Quran while those who martyred him think they are serving Islam.

Pyrrho Nist May 27, 2014 - 8:39 am

Amazing how people can kill in the name of fairy tales. Enough about christianity and judaism; islam is just as bad

Peace May 28, 2014 - 4:14 am

Firstly the Qur’an is not a fairytale, it is the exact words of God. Second the Qur’an and Islam does not teach to kill people/the innocent. this is an extremist sect/group of Islam that is killing and ruining the name of this peaceful religion. terrorism, violence, killing innocent people are not the true teachings of Islam. These people have just twisted the teachings because well they are ignorant.

Tajudeen May 29, 2014 - 12:01 pm

Pyrrho, your comments obviously appear justified going by the barbaric acts of these so – call ‘muslims’. The truth however is that these overzealous & wicked human beings & their mullahs are not portraying the teachings of Islam. If anything, they are playing the script of their master, Satan while Ahmadiyyat the true Islam preaches peace & righteousness. The evil that these wicked ‘Muslims’ do, killing innocent souls will however not go unpunished both for them and all those who support them openly or tacitly.

Our hospitals in Rabwah are being used by the non.ahmadis more than ahmadis but still they are killing those people who are saving their lives..Killing a person means killing the whole humanity

Hina May 28, 2014 - 1:17 pm

It is pathetic.Religion makes life easier not difficult but here in our country we made religion a licence to kill.Please stop the bloodshed and do not spread hate among each other.Such a talented soul did nothing wrong but to serve you so called religious Pakistanis.He was earning a good name for you in west through his hard work,honesty and integrity.Shame on you who killed a talented doctor who came to volunteer you and to save your life and the lives of your children.So sad what happened to Pakistan?

I want to respond to Ali who wants us to accept real Islam. Do you think these so called Muslims are real Muslims ?
Is that real Islam ?
Would their be any one on earth seeking a true religion will ever come near Islam after seeing killing people like this.
And is there peace on your side ? ho many innocents Sunnis are dying daily. When Ahmadya community came under attack our Imam already said, No one is coming forward to stop killing of Ahmadis and it will encourage these murderers and one by one all will come under attack. Isn’t that the truth ?
No one is safe today in Pakistan.

Jide Taofik May 29, 2014 - 6:05 pm

Inallilahi wainailahe rojeehun, may Allah grants him rewards and paradise. I will neither describe any as orthodox nor new, in Islam our faith is basic and unchanged but people could attach their personal interest to become barbaric as it is going on here in Nigeria. In Islam killing a fellow human being is big sin but the fanatics doesn’t realise. Our Holly Prophet Muhammad (saw) had never offend but defend.

Vijaya venkataraman May 29, 2014 - 6:51 pm

To this Ali guy:: so Dr Mehdi Ali Qamar was killed because Ahmedi’s don’t have their act straight ?????? That’s what you see as the problem to fix here??!!!!!
You need a shrink!

Nisar Khan May 31, 2014 - 8:37 am

I say to Ahmadies: Do not get depressed. You are winning against these satanic mullahs and against their barbaqric “Islam”. Allah is with you.

Musadaq Naseer May 31, 2014 - 5:39 pm

Its terrorism only. Ahmadies will gain a victory soon. INSHAALLAH

Ali June 1, 2014 - 11:21 pm

Yes ahmadis will gain victory in their dreams. U guys follow the fake prophet mirza ghulam

Shame on deciding fate of others when Allah is there……mr ali why cant u wait fr divine judgement…..Allah iz there to decide what is right n wrong…..fear

Sophia June 2, 2014 - 6:20 pm

And yet this ‘fake’ prophet has not been taken down by Allah. Yet Allah hasn’t unleashed His rage upon Ahmadis even after 125 years, and in fact on the contrary, has unleashed His rage upon anyone who’s stood against Ahmadiyyat. Idi Amin, Zia – ul – haq, Bhutto, Shah Faisal, Gadafi, you name it. All these people stood against Ahmadiyyat and look at their fate. Zia: Blown up in an airplane with his cause of death still unknown, body so mutilated, he was only identified by his ‘gold’ tooth. And this was barely not even two weeks after our 4th Khalifa predicted his untimely and ‘zillat ki maut’ in a sermon. Zia’s wife, disabled. His son: doesn’t have the guts to speak a single word against Ahmadiyyat.
Bhutto: Ex prime minister of Pakistan and was HANGED for unknown crimes. He was starved to an almost death, he had to be dragged across the floor to be hanged. His family perished in futile attempts, his children poisoned or brutally killed.
Gadafi: we all know what happened to him just recently.
Saudi King, Shah Faisal, was being presented to the Muslim world as the unifying leader, a potential Khalifa. Pakistani Media was in a religious frenzy at this time, Chattan ready and willing to pledge allegiance to Khalifatul Muslimeen, Shah Faisal. Now you tell me why, when everyone was ready to accept this man as their Khalifa, it didn’t happen? He had every worldly power with him, yet this scheme turned into an epic failure. To accomplish this, Bhutto declared ahamdis as non muslims because Islam can’t have two Khalifas. Well guess what? Muslims never got a Khalifa that they so desperately are in need of but the so called ‘non-muslims’ have been privileged with Khilafat for 106 years now MashAllah. WHY? Why can’t anyone seem to be able to take down Mirza Ghulam Ahmad? Every strong political leader has tried but miserable failed. Shah Faisal? Yeah, he was killed by his nephew. And the bigger question, why won’t Allah help YOU if you are right? Why won’t he destroy mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his followers, just like he did every single false prophet that arose before. You don’t see any of them or their followers anymore. Those false prophets perished. But this man who stood up ALONE in a small village in India and claimed to be a Prophet, claimed that his teachings would spread in all corners of the earth and was ridiculed and laughed at because everyone said that there was no way in hell his teachings were even leaving Qadian, was able to accomplish this anyway. He was a man who was weak an didn’t exactly have the best health. Yet, Allah never seemed to do anything to stop him. Why not? I mean Allah said in the Holy Quran: ”And if he had forged and attributed any sayings to Us, We would surely have seized him by the right hand, And then surely We would have severed his life-artery, And not one of you could have held Us off from him.” (Surah Al- Haqqah; 69: 44 – 49). Allah said this about the Holy Prophet Muhammad SAW, the most divine and pious and amazing amongst all Prophets. If He said that about him, then why didn’t He take down this so called ‘fake Prophet’?

Zarif Ahmad June 3, 2014 - 7:33 pm

In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious Ever Merciful
Dear Ali I appreciate that at least you have such gentelness in you that you have strongly condemned the attack. The Holy Quran Says Haa-tu-burhanakum-in-kuntum Sad-e-qeen, Bring your arguments if you are truthful. I assure you that these Jahil Mullah do not know the meaning of Khatm-e-nabuwwat or Akhri Nabee, they have brain washed you with their sloguns and they only know the argument of dunda or guns, Holy Prophet Khatamun-Nabiyyeen (p.b.u.h.) in a hadith name them as pigs and monkeys. Ahmadies by the Grace of Allah has already victory with arguments winning the heart and mind of people and they became steadfast only fear Allah and none else, Mullah on the other hand deprived of sound argument became butchers would put all its effort to stop the voice of truth with gun and by the Grace of Allah, these satans will meet altimate failure as all ways. Jamat Ahmadiyya on the other hand gaining ground all over the world for Hazrat Khatamun-Nabiyyeen, the final prophet with love and sound arguments. The Flage of Islam is given for its safeguard now is in the hands of Ahmadiyyat. In Pakistan unfortunately we are forbidden for our preaching, but on our global setlite Tv. http://www.mta.tv. we are an open book, in our program Rah-e-Huda you may come in our forum by phone and ask any question, and if we are wrong, pleas preach us with your sound arguments, otherwise not only we will be answerable to Allah, but you will also be answerable to Allah you did not play your roll to guide us. Ahmadiyya Islam Zindabad.
Shaheed kee jo maut hay qaum ki hayyat hay. His every drop is giving the glad tidings for the coming Revolution, when gun of Mullah will be ceased, and opperesed will be having free breathings. Pakistan Paindabad.

Slaam to u all and Assalam o alikum to Ali.
What happened to the previous mirza who had his face lying on the poo when died? And anyone who leaves the religion islam knowingly, his killing is justified then.. And where did mirza vanish when he was challenged a confrontation in lahore by pir karam shah sb of bhera sharif?
And sophia could you please tell why Allah did not help Hazrat Imam Hussain ( may Allah be pleased with him) when he was surrounded ? No you cant answer that! Allah Almighty knows best.. Be analytical… Your minds are being manipulated by mirza.. Quote me a mojza of ur mirza? Mirza will leave u no grace.. Trust me. Think over it ! Dont just follow him cos ur parents, peers and neighbours do.. Did mirza tell you he ran off from the munazra?
