‘Ahmedi’ buried without funeral prayers

Staff Report

SHABQADAR: Local clerics refused to lead the funeral prayers for a man believed to be an Ahmedi in a village of Charsadda district, local residents said on Monday.

Daulat Khan was shot dead on Monday over an old dispute in Matta Mughal Khel village. According to the villagers, local clerics issued a fatwa (decree) that Daulat had become an Ahmedi and therefore no one would lead his funeral prayers.

His family also did not resist his burial without funeral prayers.
