Did the Sunni-Barelvi Tigers just threaten Hamza Ali Abbassi on Facebook for pro-Ahmadi comments?
The post also included a picture of the actor with a large red cross plastered on it.
The actor has been under fire since he questioned the oppression of the Ahmadi community on national TV during a special Ramazan transmission. He also announced to discuss the Ahmadi community and blasphemy laws on the show.
He also questioned whether the state had the authority to declare whether someone was a Muslim or not.
According to Abbassi, this was not the first time he had spoken in favor of Ahmadis. He said he had also done this in the past, leading many to believe that he was also an Ahmadi.
In reaction to his remarks, a large number of people have started criticizing and threatening Hamza Ali Abbasi online, including the latest addition by the Sunni Breilvi Tigers group. While little is know about the group, its Facebook display picture honors Mumtaz Qadri, the security guard who shot late Punjab Governor Salman Taseer for defending a Christian woman accused of blasphemy.
A Facebook user reported the group's post to administration, however, it has refused to remove the content saying it does not violate community rules.
Mumtaz Qadri, also of the Breilvi denomination, was convicted and executed for his crime, earlier this year.
