PRESS RELEASE

Clarification – 86 Ahmadis died in the Lahore attacks

Pakistan’s High Commissioner to the UK came of his own volition

In a Press Release issued by this office on 7 June 2010 it was stated that Pakistan’s High Commissioner to the UK, Mr Wajid Shamsul Hasan visited the Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad on 2nd June 2010 to offer condolences over the Lahore terrorist attacks.

Subsequently a report was published by a particular news organisation that Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad had ‘summoned Pakistani delegates to his office in London’. For clarification purposes it is noted that the High Commissioner came of his own volition and his visit was appreciated by His Holiness.

It is also clarified that in a Press Release issued by this office on 30 May 2010 it was stated that 94 Ahmadis were killed in the Lahore terrorist attacks. It later emerged that the number of deaths were fewer and so it is now hereby confirmed that 86 Ahmadis died in the Lahore attacks. Currently there are still a few who remain injured in hospital but thankfully none are considered critical at this time.
