Members of Pakistan's Ahmadi community say they are being unfairly punished for their beliefs following a graveyard attacks in Lahore.

Last December armed men tied up a guard and 21 others before smashing more than 100 gravestones.

The group identifies itself as Muslim, but are considered as heretics by most Pakistanis, because they believe there was a prophet after Prophet Muhammad.
