‘The Early Legacies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in America’ by Patrick Bowen, Ph.D.

This is a speech delivered at the annual gathering of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Lahore last December, in Lahore, Pakistan, via Skype.

It is well and deeply researched with much new and interesting information.

It will also help the blind opponents of the Ahmadiyya Movement who lurch from one extreme to the opposite. First they say that the Ahmadiyya Movement supported Western imperialism and called on Muslims to be submissive and servile to "the white man". Then they allege that the Ahmadiyya Movement was responsible for creating a Black organization in the US which taught that "the white man" was the devil. The behaviour of these opponents is either due to hyprocrisy or mental derangement.

  1. Fascinating!

    I knew of a couple of those mentioned – Alexander Webb and Nadirah Osman. Unsurpringly, the source from which I learned of them made absolutely no mention of the fact that they were infuenced by the teachings of Hazrat Mirza sahib.

    From Zahid Aziz:

    One of the earliest articles on our website was the text of a speech by Nadirah Osman about the life of Webb which she delivered in New York in 1943. This was reproduced from The Light, 8 and 16 April 1944, to which I added extra information in comments; see link.

    I have now extracted the original pages from those two issues of The Light and made their images accessible in a pdf file at this link (8 MB).
