Two more worship places of Ahmadiyya community have been defiled in the Sindh province, bringing the total number of such incidents to four since January 18.

In Noor Nagar village of district Umerkot, a few attackers entered the Ahmadiyya worship place by scaling the outer wall and set fire to the furniture after dousing it with petrol, Amir Mehmood, a spokesperson of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Pakistan told Aaj News.

In another attack, the minarets at an Ahmaddiya worship place in Mirpur Khas district’s Chaudhary Javed Ahmed village were dismantled, according to Mehmood.

He said both incidents occurred on February 3.

In a similar incident on February 2, about a dozen men removed the minarets at an Ahmadiyya worship place in Karachi’s Saddar.

The attack on Ahmadiyya Hall on the Bachubai Eduljee Road followed a similar defilement of another place just three kilometers away in Karachi’s Martin Quarters area.

Mehmood said a pattern suggested the attacks were part of a campaign.

The police registered an FIR in the Bachubai Eduljee Road attack, but there was no official word on the incidents reported on Saturday.
