In 1974, Pakistan passed a constitutional amendment declaring Ahmadi Muslims to be “non-Muslim”. In practice it means that Ahmadis cannot call themselves Muslims or "pose as Muslims". In 1984, Pakistan passed anti-blasphemy and anti-Ahmadi laws criminalizing religious practices of Ahmadi Muslims, which are punishable by fine, imprisonment or capital punishment.
