Saleemuddin, a spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Pakistan, said he had not applied to join the minority commission.
The Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in Pakistan says it has never requested that they shall be included in the minority commission and that statements by government officials on the issue could further discriminate them.
The statement by the Ahmadiyya Jamaat came at a time when a proposal to include the Ahmadi community in the minority commission came up at a cabinet meeting a few days ago.
It should be noted that the constitution of Pakistan has declared Ahmadis as non-Muslims.
According to the spokesman of Jamaat Ahmadiyya, they accept the constitution of Pakistan and the religious freedom given in it, but they do not recognize themselves as non-Muslims in it.
The position of the Ahmadi community on this issue is clear. He added.
The issue came up in the local media when the government reported that the Ahmadi community had not been included in the minority commission by the government.
Saleemuddin, a spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Pakistan, said: “We have not applied to join the commission and have not been contacted by the government.
It is noteworthy that according to the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the Qaadyani / Mirzayee / Ahmadi / Lahoree Jamaat is non-Muslim Sects.
