Policemen scratched out Quranic verses written on the walls of an Ahmedi place of worship and ordered them to cover up short minarets at the entrance as they made the place look like a mosque, The Express Tribune has learnt.

Sunni Mullahs are up to their dirty tricks again. Whenever these “gentlemen” are confronted by someone they do not like their usual trick is to dub them an Ahmadi or use the Blasphemy Laws. How great was our Holy Prophet (S), who 1500 years ago, foresaw this and called these mullahs the worse of creation.
