“Apartheid of the Ahmadis in Pakistan”
A Talk by Pakistani Jurist Mujeeb-ur-Rahman
12:00 – 1: 15 p.m.
Lunch will be served
Please join us for a discussion with renowned Pakistani jurist Mujeeb-ur-Rahman, who has been at the forefront of the struggle for religious liberty in Pakistan for five decades. Mr. Rahman has argued scores of human rights cases before the Pakistan Supreme Court, including Zaheeruddin v. State, which legitimized persecution of the Ahmadi Muslim minority by affirming the power of the state to legally define who may call him or herself a Muslim.
This event is being co-sponsored by HLS Advocates for Human Rights, Harvard Human Rights Journal, Harvard South Asian Law Students Association, and Ahmadiyya Muslim Lawyers Association USA.
