The United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) is troubled by reports of escalating repression targeting the Ahmadiyya community in Algeria in recent weeks.

“New convictions and harsh sentences against Ahmadi Muslims in Algeria demonstrate systematic and ongoing persecution on religious grounds,” said USCIRF Vice Chair Anurima Bhargava. “The U.S. government should urge the Algerian government to act swiftly to reverse this disturbing trend.”
