The Attock Assistant Commissioner Jannat Hussain Nekokara was forced to apologise as she commented in support of equal rights for minorities of Pakistan.
The Administrative Service officer of Pakistan Jannat Hussain Nekokara was harassed by the university students in Attock as she raised the issue of human rights from minorities which also included the Ahmadis in Pakistan.
Attock Assistant Commissioner Jannat Hussain Nekokara was forced to apologise in reference to her comments that were made in support of equal rights for minorities.
Jannat Hussain Nekokara spoke at the district administration building on an International Human Rights Day event when the people of Pakistan were urged by her to shed differences and unite.
The Attock Assistant Commissioner Jannat Hussain Nekokara said “We should give due rights to non-Muslims Pakistanis, we should give them their due regard, we have unfortunately gotten stuck in these religious divisions, someone identifies as Shia, someone as Sunni, someone as an Ahmadi, someone as a Wahabi, we should dissolve these differences and instead identify ourselves only as Muslims and Pakistanis.”
The comments that were made in support of equal rights for minorities created furor as many protesters soon stormed the government building and an apology was demanded from the assistant commissioner for clubbing Ahmadias with Muslims.
The apology of Attock Assistant Commissioner Jannat Hussain Nekokara was recorded on several cameras and was shared on social media. In the video, the assistant commissioner said that she accepted that Ahmadis were not Muslims and she should not have said it.
Jannat Hussain Nekokara “I talked about minority rights, I spoke about rights of non-Muslim Pakistanis, maybe I should have not even mentioned the word Ahmadi in that, then I spoke about how we should stay united and not discriminate against anyone so that we can protect against external enemies.”
She added “They (Ahmadis) are non-Muslim according to the constitution and non-Muslim in my view as well.”
The official also yielded to the demands of protesters on calling her son a kafir. “He is definitely a non-Muslim, a kafir,” she said for her son.
The students also harassed Assistant Commissioner Jannat Hussain Nekokara as she was not wearing a hijab while talking about Islam.
Islamist student also said that Caliph Abubakr called for beheading one’s own father if he dares to blaspheme against the Prophet.
“Which country is she living in, she is talking about Islam without a dupatta covering her head,” a student is heard saying in a video posted online.
