Section 298 + Discussion
A new short documentary (with English subtitles) which unveils the realities of life under Pakistan’s deadliest law. Section 298 of the Pakistan Penal code (part of the country’s blasphemy laws) targets Ahmadi Muslims and legalises prosecution and imprisonment for those who identify as Ahmadi Muslims – a religious community that has been internationally acknowledged as the most persecuted community in Pakistan.
Persecuted from birth, Ahmadi Muslims are targeted at home, in schools and colleges, at work, in their mosques and even their graves are not spared. They are also denied the right to vote.
Section 298 takes us into the heart of the Pakistani Ahmadiyya Muslim Community as they struggle to keep their families, community and traditions alive.
This screening of Section 298 will be followed by a discussion with members of the local Ahmadi Muslim community in Manchester, including Fareed Ahmad who serves as National Secretary for External Affairs at Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK.
