Members of the "Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat", a Bangladeshi religious community which considers itself a sect of Islam, has been the target of a hate campaign organized by a number of Islamist groups in the country in recent months. Amnesty International is urging the Government of Bangladesh to ensure the safety and security of the Ahmadiyya community; uphold its members’ right to practice their religion without fear of persecution; lift the ban on their publications; and ensure that those responsible for attacks against Ahmadis are brought to justice.
