While speaking at an International Human Rights Day event in Attock, Nekokara had called for granting equal rights to all minorities regardless of religious divisions. “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,” she said.
Soon afterward, over a dozen protesters, most of them students, arrived at the district administration building demanding an explanation from the Attock AC over grouping Ahmadis with other Muslims in her speech.
She clarifies her comments here:
Bilal: Pls take down this tweet and RT with the longer version of the video. That will expose the aukat even better. pic.twitter.com/b052CD4pNA— Tambi Dude (@Tambi_Dude) December 12, 2019
That was some serious back-pedal. The only thing missing was a token Ahmadi hanging from a lamp post behind her.
