Here is the public rejection of state sponsered ‘Takfeer’ (Declaring non muslim)
I was appalled to see how much are they involved and engaged in their victory against nonsense printed on passport forms!
And they take pride on Not Declaring, where as state and its psudo acters take pride in Declaring Ahmadis as Not Muslim.
Shan Taseer says,
Excellent stuff !!!!
Ladies and gentlemen here is the experience of a young lady with regard to that obnoxious declaration we are to make about someone else’s faith in order to obtain a Pakistani Passport.
I would encourage everyone to follow this Pakistani’s example.

I just got home from a visit to the Karachi passport office, and I wanted to share the experience with anyone who has ever considered doing this but didn’t for fear of creating trouble for themselves. I didn’t sign the declaration of Ahmedis as non-Muslims and no one batted an eyelid!
When renewing your passport, at the data entry counter you are asked to sign a document in two places: one to verify that all the information therein is correct, and the second in case you are a Muslim to (i) declare that you are a Muslim, (ii) don’t believe in any claims to prophethood, and (iii) that Ahmedis are non-Muslim. I signed at the first place to confirm the information is correct, but not in the second place for the declaration. I handed the document back to the data entry operator and he pointed to the second place for my signature, and I calmly asked him, "Can I get my passport without signing this part?” He was expressionless for 5 seconds and just said "Okay please take this to the Assistant Director (or whatever he’s called) and check with him.” That was the next and final step anyway, and when I went there, no one asked me to do anything! My documents were checked and approved as normal and I was out of there in 30 seconds!
Maybe I got lucky with the staff this morning, or maybe the guy missed the absent signature. But maybe, just maybe, this means something better. So if you’ve ever thought about doing this, please try. Pakistan Zindabad!
Dozens are in comments and saying sensible things and Ms Sanaa Jatoi shares her experience,
You got lucky, and I’m really happy for you. I got my passport renewed in January, and explicitly said that I didn’t want to sign this statement. I was sitting in the AD’s office too and basically everyone was just extremely condescending and coerced me into signing it saying things like "aap sign nahi karein gi toh passport kaisay milay ga??”
This is the second time I’ve had this fight- hopefully I won’t have to in 10 years. But yes, it depends on the staff and how benevolent they’re feeling that day. I wasn’t so lucky.
This is the gentle, enlightened and liberal muslim stuff corrupted forcefully by an evil nexus of Mullah and Politician.
Both of them are enjoying and public is suffocating and suffering!
