What did Qadianis do for US to accept 94 Refugees?

Here are the two promised emails. Amjad Khan, a lawyer, should be commended for using language that does not reveal direct quid pro quo.  However, it is very apparent that the United States Government would not take such an unprecedented step without something strategic in return:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious Ever Merciful

Dear Local Umoor-e-Kharija (Public Affairs) Secretaries:

Assalamo Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatohu.

I hope and pray that you are well.

It is with profound happiness and gratitude that I report to all of you that all 96 current Ahmadi detainees — including 64 men and women and 34 children (under the age of 12) — will be released from the International Detention Center (IDC) on Monday, June 6.  Alhumdholilah suma alhumdholillah.  These detainees have been confined since December 14 (two of the 96 had been confined for 20 months).  The detainees had endured harrowing and unspeakable conditions during their confinement.

In addition, and perhaps most significantly, 94 of the 96 detainees have been tentatively approved for resettlement to the United States by the U.S. Embassy.  The process should be complete within 6-12 months.  Insha’allah.

The bail agreement, release and resettlement were the result of thousands of hours of humble efforts by the National Umoor-e-Kharija Department USA over the course of the past six months.  In particular, Mujeeb Ijaz Sahib (and his wife, Sabiha Ijaz Sahiba) undertook multiple week-long expeditions to Thailand in May to execute the release.  During their trips, they met with over two dozen officials from the Thai government, UNHCR, U.S. State Department and several NGOs.  Their efforts were nothing short of extraordinary.  In addition, several team members worked behind the scenes to help facilitate the release.

According to the Thai Government’s National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), this is “an historic first in Thailand’s refugee cases.”   On Monday, June 6, the NHRC will host a formal press conference/ceremony marking the release of the 96 Ahmadis.  A joint press release by Thai government officials and local NGOs will also be issued.  (I will forward a copy of that on Monday).

Upon release, all 96 Ahmadis will be cared for in secure private housing with comfortable accommodations until such time as they are resettled to the United States.  They will be cared for through the help and services of the Thai Committee for Refugees (TCR).  All arrangements and details have been meticulously arranged by the National Umoor-e-Kharija Department USA and local Thai Jama’at.

Each of these developments is the direct byproduct of countless prayers by Huzoor-e-Aqdas (aba), the detainees themselves and many other Jama’at members.   Our team is in awe with how Allah blessed our humble efforts every step of the way.  It is difficult to capture in words the power of prayers at work here.  We were truly blessed to be given an opportunity to assist.

I also wanted to thank each and every local secretary who made this issue a priority during meetings with public officials.  Those efforts played a major role in this breakthrough.

May Allah continue to give our dear Ahmadi refugees the strength and patience to bear with all hardships.  Insha’allah.  Ameen.

Our work continues…

Yours humbly in the service of Ahmadiyyat,

Amjad Mahmood Khan
National Secretary Umoor-e-Kharija USA
Ahmadiyya Muslim Community USA

And how the Ahmadiyya feed the U.S. Secretary of State:

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious Ever Merciful

Dear Local Umoor-e-Kharija (Public Affairs) Secretaries:

Assalamo Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah Wa Barakatohu.

The U.S. State Department issued its annual report on international religious freedom earlier today.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s brief press statement, in which she expressly mentions the persecution of Ahmadis for a second year in a row (alhumdholillah), can be read here:

The full report on Pakistan, which makes extensive and repeated mention of Ahmadis, is here:

The full report on Indonesia, which makes extensive and repeated mention of Ahmadis, is here:

http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/171653.pdf

Alhumdholillah, for both reports, our ongoing briefings were used in large part.

Please include these valuable resources in your dossiers for public officials.  We will upload them on ahmadiyya.us as well.
Jazakamullah.
