    Further, during the broadcast members of the discussion panel when speaking in reference to the beliefs of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and its Founder spoke of how people who held such beliefs were 'Wajb-ul-Qatl', that is 'Liable to death'. This phrase was used repeatedly and at no point did the moderator interject to stop such obscene and inflammatory language being used. In this respect the broadcaster completely failed in its duty to exercise a proper degree of responsibility with respect the content of its broadcast.
    The programme was broadcast on 7th September 2008. On 8th September 2008 Dr Abdul Mannan Siddiqi, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Mirpurkhaas, Sindh was murdered whilst working in the local hospital. The very next day on 9th September 2008, Seth Muhammad Yousuf, President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Nawab Shah, Sindh was also murdered. Both of these victims were killed simply due to their membership of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Both murders took place in broad daylight.
