Hate Bait

I always wondered why most Pakistanis cringe (both physically and emotionally) at the suggestion that Ahmadis could have a legitimate claim to Islam as well. We accept other "deviant" groups (Shias) as well (on a token level), don't we? Why single them out?

I'm not asking anyone to convert into an Ahmadi, but let's stop treating these people as evil incarnate and start considering them as human beings and our fellow coreligionists. We have much more important things to worry about than the "Ahmadi" takeover of Islam.
