Imran's party MLA called his special assistant 'Qadiani', then he had to face jail, what is the meaning of this word?

Pakistan PM Imran Khan

Qadiani Pakistan News: A legislator of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party (PTI) was on Wednesday released from jail on bail, along with an apology for calling the special assistant to Prime Minister Imran Khan a ‘Qadiani’. Significantly, members of the minority Ahmadiyya community in Pakistan are called ‘Qadiani’. On July 27, Lahore Police arrested PTI MLA Nazir Chauhan for calling the Prime Minister Khan’s accountability and Special Adviser on Internal Affairs Mirza Shahzad Akbar ‘Qadiani’.

Chouhan is with the rebel Jahangir Tarin group in the party. Following Akbar’s complaint, a case was registered by the Federal Investigation Agency (Qadiani in Pakistan Law) against MLA Chauhan in the Punjab Assembly. The court had rejected Chauhan’s bail plea, for which he had to go to jail. Chouhan on Tuesday apologized to Akbar for making “baseless allegations”, to which Akbar forgave him. Akbar told the sessions court in Lahore that he had no objection to Chauhan being granted bail in the case.

Parliament declared non-Muslims

The affidavit, filed in the court by Akbar’s lawyer, said, “The accused Nazir Chauhan has admitted his mistake, apologized and expressed remorse for the false allegations against the complainant, on which the complainant has forgiven him.” After Akbar’s statement, the court granted bail to Chauhan and he was released from Kot Lakhpat Jail (Qadiani Pakistan Constitution). Let us tell you that the people of Ahmadiyya community were declared non-Muslims by the Parliament of Pakistan in 1974.

Banned on being called a Muslim

A decade later, he was also banned from calling himself a Muslim. There is also a ban on his preaching and going for Hajj. Akbar said that after Chauhan commented on his religious faith and called him ‘Qadiani’, a threat to him and his family had arisen (Pakistan Constitution About Ahmadis). Chauhan had claimed during a TV show in May that Akbar was a ‘Qadiani’ and challenged him to swear that “he is not an Ahmadiyya but a Muslim”.
