qadianiFr is not derogatory word[edit]

From when this is considered to be a derogatory word? I know ahmadi as "qadiani". I just discovered from wikipedia that there is a word called ahmadi. I have several qadiani friends. They never told that they are ahmadi, they always told that they are qadiani. In asia "ahmadi" is unknown word. I can bring my qadiani friends to talk about this in this encyclopedia.

Did you read the source? --NeilN talk to me 14:05, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
--NeilN talk to me Ahmadikafirkabaccha should be banned. Is there no WP policy which says that usernames cannot be profane words? His name means "ahmadis are sons of infidels"FreeatlastChitchat (talk) 04:27, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Thanks FreeatlastChitchat. I've reported the username and the account should be blocked soon. --NeilN talk to me 04:33, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
He is right that qadiani is the most common term, "ahmadi" is relatively unknown to most people. Saying it is derogatory is a bit ridiculous, it is just the name of the city the religion was invented in, Qadian. Sakimonk talk 21:22, 6 August 2015 (UTC)
@Sakimonk: As NeilN stated did you bother reading the source? Yor edits such as this re-labelling Ahmadiyya as a separate religion are non-constructive and may constitute Vandalism.--Peaceworld 10:36, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
It is a seperate religion because they following a totally different belief system to Islam and they follow another prophet and they say God is like a human who fasts (authubillah...) etc. etc. they have been declared as kafir a long time ago by total consensus Sakimonk talk 23:33, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Really? At what noticeboard did we arrive at that consensus? I note that HRW also describe the term as derogatory.--Anders Feder (talk) 10:37, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

As per the source, the official government term is qadiani, it refers to them originating from Qadian, this isn't a slur...[edit]

If it was a slur why would the government label them this officially? Official government documents >>>>>> a solitary book which may or may not be reliable. Sakimonk talk 23:35, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

If "official government documents" do not recognize Ahmadiyya as a sect of Islam, they probably recognize it as herasy (sp?), so they might very well refer to it by a slur. — Arthur Rubin (talk) 00:22, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Arthur Rubin The source Sakimonk refers to is part of Pakistan's Blasphemy laws which calls for up to three years of imprisonment for Ahmadis calling themselves Muslims, or preaching or propagating their faith, or "in any manner whatsoever" outraging the religious feelings of Muslims, or for posing themselves as Muslims. This bigoted law has been subject to serious criticism by international human rights organizations. If it uses a religious slur to refer to Ahmadis, it is by no means an accident. Rather it should be expected.--Peaceworld 09:53, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
