Islamabad: Pakistan's envoy to the United Nations Maleeha Lodhi came under fire back home for congratulating Mahershala Ali, who became the first Muslim to win the best supporting actor Oscar.

Maleeha faces the backlash for promoting Ali, an Ahmadi, who are considered non-Muslims in Pakistan.

She later deleted her tweet as a response to all the criticism.

Ahmadis are considered as non-Muslims by law in Pakistan and have been persecuted over the years for being Kafirs (heretics). The group has been deprived of religious rights under the Second Amendment to the Constitution of Pakistan.


Article 260-3 of Pakistan's Constitution declares Ahmadis "non-Muslims".

Ali played the role of a drug dealer Juan in oscar winning "Moonlight", who takes care of Chiron as he struggles to find his place in the world while growing up in Miami.
