Our comments on a Saba Imtiaz article: http://tribune.com.pk/story/207776/ahmadis-under-attack-in-rabwah-every-house-has-a-story-to-tell/.  While we are saddened by the discrimination that the Ahmadiyya community sometimes endures, this piece was another strange one — no less or more strange than others, but still strange to those who know.
