Arrest of the Muslims Protesting the Gathering of the Followers of the Qadiyani Sect in London

 

Tehran – Islamic Republic News Service

 

In support of the Qadiyani Sect, police in England arrested a group of Muslims in Bradford.  However the continuation of the protest forced the police to release them on bail.

 

…It should be noted that the date of the formation of the Qadiyani or Ahmadiyyah political sect in the Indian Peninsula, similar to the Baha’i sect in Iran, goes back to a hundred and fifty years ago, when the British attempted to influence the region.  In order to create religious disunity and increase colonial influence, both sects were created within a short span of time.
