US lawmakers rally to protect Islamic world's Ahmadi

US Representative Frank Wolf speaks at West Springfield High School on August 17, 2012 in Springfield, VirginiaUS lawmakers on Friday announced a caucus to fight for the rights of the Ahmadi minority, which has faced attacks in Pakistan and elsewhere in the Islamic world. The creation of a caucus — a group in the US Congress that shares an agenda — is primarily symbolic in itself but lays the groundwork for lawmakers to be more active. Republican Representative Frank Wolf, the co-chair with Democrat Jackie Speier, said the Ahmadiyya Muslim Caucus would press for the rights of Ahmadis in trouble in Pakistan, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and elsewhere. Imam Naseem Mahdi, national vice president and missionary in charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA, said that the caucus would advocate not just for Ahmadis but “for the rights of all persecuted religious communities in the world.”
