Refuting the gross distortion and misrepresentation of the Quran, the Prophet Muhammad and Islam, made by the critics of Islam
Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri.
I received an email from a Qadiani Rind Malik. He sent attachment of a column by well-known Urdu Columnist, resident of NY. His name is Hasan Mujtaba. He is a regular columnist in most published Urdu newspaper in Pakistan i.e. Daily Jang. He also writes column in weekly Urdu newspaper published in NY, NY i.e. Pakistan Post (http://www.pakistanpost.net). In its issue from May 30th, to June 05th, 2013 a column is written by Hasan Mujtaba, under heading ‘Har Buraki Ki Jar Saudi Arabia Ka Badshah’ (Translation: Root of every evil is King of Saudi Arabia). Column is on page 10 of this issue on the newspaper's website: http://www.pakistanpost.net/issues/issue-1053/
According to Hasan Mujtaba sahib Ahmadis were declared non-Muslim in Pakistan in 1974 by then Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto under pressure of King Faisal of Saudi Arabia who visited Pakistan earlier that year on occasion of 2nd Islamic Summit held in Lahore. I know Qadianis give this reason for declaration of Ahmadis (both Qadianis and Lahori-Ahmadis) as non-Muslim under 2nd constitutional amendment in 1973 Pakistan Constitution. As I read same in column by columnist of stature of Hasan Mujtaba, I was very disappointed. I was not expecting from him to make such unfounded accusation. In column he writes he attended a wedding reception of Ahmadi (Qadiani-group) in New Jersey, I don’t understand what he ate there that overcame his better judgment.
Pakistanis, including Pakistan People Party elders, who are aware of politics in 1970s in Pakistan know that Qadiani-Group people collectively at organizational level on command of their then Qadiani Khalifa 3 Mirza Nasir Ahmad supported financially, voluntarily, and by votes helped PPP win 1970 election in former West Pakistan. That brought PPP into power and ZA Bhutto became its Prime Minister. That help of Qadiani Khalifa 3 and his younger brother who later became Qadiani Khalifa 4 Mirza Tahir Ahmad, encouraged them to interfere in politics of the country, especially in Punjab Province. And to keep pressure on ZA Bhutto, Qadiani leadership also started political contacts with PPP opponent party ‘Tahrik-e-Istiqlal’ of Air Marshal (retired) Asghar Khan. According to book ‘Bhutto Kay Akhari 323 Din’ (Last 323 days of Bhutto) by Col. Rafi-ud-Din, the military liaison in last year of Bhutto life in prison, Bhutto said, “Qadianis were becoming King Makers in Pakistan like Jews in United States”.
So to end the NUISANCE VALUE of Qadianis he declared them Kafir (non-Muslim). Rabwa Railway Station incident (in which Qadianis physically beat Muslim medical college students) provided a good chance to Bhutto to execute his game plans. Interestingly, in same book, Bhutto considered it as his “virtuous act” to get Qadianis declared Kafir. Nowhere he said that he acted under pressure of Late King Faisal of Saudi Arabia. Elsewhere I have mentioned how Lahori-Ahmadis became the innocent bystander victims of the 2nd amendment in constitution.
As far as Late King Faisal is concerned he knew Lahori-Ahmadis are Muslims. Here are two examples:
1-Late King Faisal offered Eid and other prayers behind Lahori-Ahmadi Imams at Woking Muslim Mission (Shah Jehan Mosque) during his visit/stay in UK.
2-In 1950s during his six months stay as personal guest of late Saudi King Ibn-Saud, late Abdul Manan Omar sahib spent considerable time in Makkah. During his stay posters against him by Mullah in that city were distributed, stating that he was Kafir (Nauzubilah). Late King Faisal was at that time was Governor of Makkah. He intervened and with help of Imam of Kaaba Sharif (Masjid Al-Haram) he resolved the issue.
So it is absolute concoction that late King Faisal initiated and pressure Bhutto to get Qadianis delared Kafir.
I wonder when Qadianis will realize that in era of ‘Great Equalizer’ i.e. Internet, their lies cannot remain unexposed. When Qadianis will realize they are only deceiving themselves and occasionally others like Hasan Mujtiba sahib, before people find out the truth?
I will try to reach columnist Hasan Mujtiba and keep readers posted on this blog.
King Faisal photo at Woking Muslim Mission Mosque:
"PARAMARIBO, Suriname — During his two-day visit to the Dutch-speaking Republic of Suriname, a Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member state on the northern coast of South America, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) secretary general, Dr Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, on Monday toured two iconic landmarks in downtown Paramaribo — a synagogue and a mosque that face each other.
During a tour of the city and to get familiar with the multi-ethnic, multi-lingual and multi-religious make up of Suriname, the OIC secretary general and his wife, Fusun Ihsanoglu, visited the Neve Shalom synagogue and the neighbouring Keizerstraat mosque."
Thought Provoking Questions by Qadiani Friend Nasir Mahmood.
I received an email from a Qadiani friend Nasir Mahmood sahib. He commented on speech delivered by QK3 Mirza Nasir Ahmad on November 6, 1977, at Masjid Aqsa, Rabwah, Pakistan to annual rally of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya. In email Nasir Mahmood sahib also raised some poignant questions. I see it as a sign of Islal (correction)in Qadiani beliefs and practices. Though Qadiani friends have long way to travel, but journey has started. Allah-O-Akbar. Email is copy-pasted below.
Hadi Ali Chaudhry Sb,
The Editor, Ahmadiyya Gazette
Reference: Article on Khilafat and Mujaddidiyyat (May 2013 issue)
Assalam-o-Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
Herein below the undersigned enlists some questions and comments on the above document with the request to please answer and clarify these in your next issue of Ahmadiyya Gazette:
1) It does not make sense why the author chose to build up his views on the basis of some ambiguous sayings of a few scholars prior to Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) whereas he claimed to be the third Khalifa of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) who has dilated (expounded) upon this subject covering it abundantly in all aspects in his books and sayings.
2) The history of Jamaat and its literature is witness to it that up until 1968 it was the unanimous faith of Jamaat of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) that Messengers, Prophets and Mujadadeen shall keep on descending in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya (i.e. true Islam) until the day of resurrection. What prompted him to put forward this innovation contrary to the teachings of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as)? Also, third Khalifa’s statements in Pakistan National Assembly of 1974 that no Ummati Prophet will come after Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) in the Ummah was in direct contradiction of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as)’s clear statements that Ummati Prophets shall keep on coming in future as well. (Reference: Roohani Khazain, Volume 20, Page 227)
3) Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) has defined that a Khalifa is the substitute of the Prophet who rejuvenates the faith (Reference: Malfoozat, Volume 2, Page 666). The term “Khalifa” means the Rank and the term “Tajdid” describes his function. The effort of the author to unnecessarily confuse the readers is highly deplorable.
4) The author has admitted the claim of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) that he is the 13th Khalifa of Islam who descended at the turn of 14th Century. So it simply means that in previous 13 centuries there was only one Khalifa in each century and it refutes the innovation of the author that the Arabic word “Mann” in the hadith of Mujadadeen may mean more than one in a century. Can you provide a reference from the writings of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) to this effect? Why should an Ahmadi disregard the teachings of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) the “Hakam” and “Adal” and prefer others over him?
5) Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) has described that the verse “Inna Nah-nu NazZal NazZikra Wa Inna La-hu La Hafizoon” (Al-Hijr Verse 10) is the fundamental verse regarding this subject and the Ayaat-e-Istakhlaf is subservient exposition of the same (Reference: Roohani Khazain, Voume 6, Page 338). The hadith of Mujadadeen is further exposition of both above mentioned verses, but the author has not taken into his account this basic fact in his article.
6) The author has stated that there is no mention of the word “Mujadad” in Holy Quran. But doesn’t he know that there is no mention of the words “Masih-e-Maud”, “Qudrat-e-Sania” and “Khilafat Ahmadiyya” in the Holy Quran? Then why did he believe that?
7) The author has tried to belittle the rank of Mujadad while Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) says:
a) That in being Messenger of God, the Prophet and the Mohaddas have the same rank (Reference: Roohani Khazain, volume 6, Page 323).
b) The Mujadadin and Roohani Khulafa are needed in the Ummah as there was need of prophets since ever (Reference: Roohani Khazain, Volume 6, Page 340).
Since the Mujadad should necessarily be the recipient of the Holy Spirit (Rooh-ul-Qudas) also comes in the garb of a prophet, therefore signs to recognize him are the same as that of a prophet. Moreover it is incumbent upon a believer to recognize the Mujadad / Imam-uz-Zaman of his century and have faith in him and thus avoid dying in a state of ignorance. Did the author ever announce his claim to be the recipient of the Holy Spirit?
8) The author has based his views about Khilafat Ahmadiyya on the basis of hadith stating Khilafat Rashida will be for 30 years, but Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) has not given much credibility to this hadith as compared to others for the current age (Reference: Roohani Khazain, Volume 6, Page 338). Therefore any reference for the author’s approval of it is simply an imputation and “dajjal”.
9) The author’s assertion that his views are in accordance with the teachings of his predecessor Khulafa is incorrect. First Khalifa states (Reference: Badar, 23 May 1913) that Qudrat-e-Sania means that Mujadadeen will keep on coming in support of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as). Similarly 2nd Khalifa says the same in Tafseer Kabeer, Volume 9, Page 319.
10) The author further says that it is not necessary that a Mujadad should announce his claim. But we find in the practice of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) that prior to his receiving the honor of rank of Masih-e-Maud in 1889, earlier he was granted the rank of Mujadad in 1885 and he did publish it (Reference: Roohani Khazain, Volume 2, Page 319). Did he do an unnecessary thing by announcing of his becoming a Mujadad?
11) Further the author says that if someone believes that after Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as) any Mujadad should come he belittles Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as)’s position. To such thinkers, the question is this that sometime after the Holy Prophet (saw) the Khatam-ul-Anbiyaa (Nabi-e-Akhir-uz-Zamaan), Mujadadeen and Ummati Prophet have advented but his (saw) position has not been belittled; rather his (saw) beneficence increased, then how such occurrence will belittle the rank of Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud (as)?
Unity of Jamaat is much desirable but it cannot be achieved by disobeying Almighty Allah, His Prophet (saw) and Hadhrat Masih-e-Maud’s (as) teachings which is what happens when the people start following the whimsical views of any person contrary to it.

Misuse of Homeopathy to Establish Divine Appointment.
According to Hadith of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS real knowledge is of two types, Knowledge of Religion and Knowledge of Human body.
Hazrat Maulana Noor-ud-Din RTA was scholar of religion and hakeem (physician in eastern medicine). This hadith perfectly applied on him. On top of that his appointment of Khalifa of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad AS, by virtue of being the first person to do ba’it (pledge of allegiance) of Mamur-min-Allah i.e. HMGA, was divine. In exactly the manner in which Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique RA was Khalifa of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS.
People in Qadiani organization found very hard to match and defeat this uniqueness of Maulana Noor-ud-Din RTA.
Qadiani Khalifa 4 Mirza Tahir Ahmad decided to take the challenge. So, according to him he received education and was qualified Homeopath Physician. And to assert his claim that he is bearer of two types of knowledge mentioned in hadith, he got books published to his credit and made his Qadiani followers purchase homeopathic medicines prescribed, prepared, dispensed, and advised by him. Qadianis are aware of homeopathic medicines scandal in Germany. To achieve the second objective i.e. to defeat Maulana Noor-ud-Din RTA, QK4 Mirza Tahir Ahmad tried on different occasions to belittle Maulana in an effort to lower his status in eyes of Qadianis. Two examples: 1- In one of his speech he said to Qadianis, “I have led more prayers as Khalifa than Khalifa-tul-Massih-Awal (Maulana Noor-ud-Din RTA)”. 2-In one of his speech to his Qadiani followers QK4 said, “Khalifa-tul-Massih-Awal only received his Khilafat by sitting in the shoes of Massih Mahud AS (HMGA)”.
This technique of applying above mentioned Hadith on oneself is so pervasive among Qadianis, regardless of how crooked application may be, that a former Qadiani Nasir Ahmad Sultani, who has made claim of Mujaddid of 15th Islamic century, contempt’s modern western scientific based allopathic medicine. Nasir Sultani claims he is qualified as Homeopath Physician. And with his name he does not writer qualifier ‘Homeopath’ and only writes ‘Doctor’. And to establish his credentials of being a “physician” he has posted his photos with stethoscope around his neck. Further to establish his claim that homeopathic medicine is superior to modern western allopathic medicine by stating that among his disciples and students there are many MBBS physician. Nasir Sultani is unwilling to accept that it is very much possible that, his disciples and students, MBBS physicians are NOT aware of ‘Evidence Based Medicine’ and lack knowledge of ‘Double Blind Placebo Controlled Studies’. In my emails I have tried to educate them about the Placebo effect of homeopathic medicines.
I came across BBC documentary on homeopathic drugs and homeopathy in general. I have three purposes of posting it here:
1-Educate readers of this post on non-scientific basis of homeopathy and homeopathic drugs.
2-Educate readers of how claimants of “divine-appointments” find SHORTCUT to apply above hadith on themselves.
3-Educate followers of QK4 Mirza Tahir Ahmad and Nasir Ahmad Sultani, how you people are defrauded and cheated of your Iman (belief) and spirituality. Question for such followers: If a person is committing a physical fraud, how you can expect that he will not commit a spiritual fraud???
BBC Horizon – Homeopathy The Test
I was watching news on TV recently when an item was broadcast about the commission in South Africa conducting an enquiry into the shooting of miners by the police at Marikana. As the item ended it showed a glimpse of the Chairman of the enquiry. I recognised him instantly — especially those raised eye brows and that twinkle in the eye. It was, as I confirmed by a search on the Internet, Mr Ian Farlam. See this link to the Commission's website. He was our senior advocate at the 1984 stage of the first Cape Town case (not, however, in 1985 when the final hearing was held).
In October 1984, the late Maulana Hafiz Sher Mohammad sahib and I used to go to his office almost daily to brief him and his junior counsel. One day I took a photo of the two counsels in his office, which I display below, in which Mr Farlam is on the left.
One day when we went to his office, we discovered that the attonery for the opposite party had sent our counsel a copy of the 1984 Federal Shariat Court judgment in Pakistan, which upheld that the Pakistan government had been right to declare Ahmadis as non-Muslim. This had been brought by the eminent Pakistani witnesses against us who had come to Cape Town to help the defendants. Our counsel were deeply worried, seeing "Shariat Court Judgment" written on the cover page of this thick, impressive looking volume. But as they studied it over the next few days (and I used to translate parts of it into Urdu for Hafiz sahib) they were astonished to find that the judge's comments were simply a travesty of justice. Our worry was removed because the courts in South Africa were not going to take this laughable document seriously.
When the hearing began in November 1984, this was when the defendants applied for the question to be determined "whether or not the Court should decline to hear the merits of the dispute as to whether Ahmadis are Muslims or not", the reason they advanced being that a secular court could not adjudicate on religious issues, and that it should accept the decisions of the Muslim bodies which had declared Ahmadis as non-Muslim. After three days of legal arguments, the judge reserved his judgment, which he delivered in July 1985, rejecting the defendants' arguments.

With the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI there was a natural discussion in the Christian world about the next Pope (now since elected). Time magazine wrote in the matter – Does the Holy Spirit Choose the Pope?
Not to be left behind, the Qadianis jumped into the same foray about their own ‘Divine Khalifa’ for the mere fact that either a Christian or a Qadiani can be Divinely appointed, but not both. So, Qasim Rashid wrote on Huffington Post under – God's Man on Earth, which is essentially a self-selected and self-fulfilling statement about Qadiani dogmas.
In all fairness, the Christians at least have a standardized process to elect their Pope (see link). Can Qadianis match it, while keeping in mind that it is they who elect and not God who appoints? When was the last time a Prophet or a Mujaddid was elected? Whereas, it is the 'first' for a Divinely election for a Divine appointed by the Qadianis.
Following is the post I submitted in two parts to God's Man on Earth, which apparently has not shown up on the website yet.
The author writes – “In the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC), during the election of the Second Khalifa, a party chose to reject Khilafat. Those Muslims have since denied themselves of this Divine blessing. Those Muslims who chose to maintain spiritual allegiance to Khilafat, however, have benefited from its continued growth and guidance. "
The author probably is privy to some Divine Communication to make the above statement; else these are simply empty words of a crony to please the ‘Khalifa’ of the time. Can he qualify the benefit and loss of one party over another?
In another place the author states: “Likewise, a man of God is different than God's man on earth. A man of God is a voluntary position or status — such as the imam of a mosque. God's man on Earth, however, is an appointed position and therefore a required obligation for the one appointed.”
Of course this is the distinction for the offices of the likes of Abraham, Moses, Muhammad from those of Pharoahs and Nimrods of the time to which God testifies in His scriptures of the time by identifying the prophets by name e.g. in Torah, Evengel, Quran.
Based upon which Divine Scripture does the author make the claim – “His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the world's only Khalifa and head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, continues his lifelong Divinely appointed tenure to the office of Khilafat.”?
Can the author reproduce the statements of their Khalifas where they make the claim that that they have been Divinely appointed? The Prophets spent their lifetime to prove their Divine appointments and their success in their own lifetime is not short of a “miracle”. Can these Khalifas of AMC match those standards of Divine appointments?
There is a book out there "Man of God" about the fourth Khalifa that is widely circulated in AMC. Is the fourth Khalifa – The Man i.e. the imam of a mosque?
A curious question to the author – since Khalifas 2,3,4,5 are all blood relations, how are they different than the ‘holy lineage’ like the “Pirs” of India who run empires in the garb of Divine spirituality?
Using the word Divine does not capture or attribute the Divine-ship. The Divine-ship is in actions and accomplishments? What Divine accomplishments have been achieved by the Khalifas 2,3,4,5 that could not have been done by any other mortal?
The comments below should be confined to the subject mentioned above.

Change in Qadiani beliefs inside National Assembly in 1974
Qadiani Khalifa 3 Mirza Nasir Ahmad CHANGED HIS BELIEFS inside the secret proceedings of Pakistan National Assembly.
While reading testimony of marhoom Abdul Manan Omar sahib in the recently published Pakistan National Assembly proceedings I came across interesting information that was provided by Pakistan’s Attorney General Mr. Yahya Bakhtiar to Abdul Manan Omar sahib.
On page 1699 and 1700 Yahya Bakhtiar informs Abdul Manan Omar that Qadianis Khalifa 3 Mirza Nasir Ahmad HAS AMENDED, I REPEAT, AMENDED THEIR DEFINITION OF KAFIR. By the word ‘Kafir’ they mean ‘sinner’ JUST LIKE BELIEF OF LAHORI-AHMADIS.
In reply Abdul Manan sahib said, “since it was secret proceedings, so we will appreciate if you could give us more information. We will be thankful”.
In reply Yahya Bakhitar says, “it will not be secret forever. It will become public in some time”.
Further in reply Abdul Manan Omar sahib said, “if Qadianis make couple of more AMMENDMENTS in their beliefs, they will become your and our Muslim brothers”.
THIS PROVES QADIANI KHALIFA 3 LIKE HIS FATHER QADIANI KHAILFA 2, PRESENTED DIFFERENT BELIEFS IN COURT THAN THE ONE THEY MAKE THEIR FOLLOWERS TO ADOPT. QK2 adopted the same strategy in Munir Commission Inquiry court in 1953.
Publication of 1974 reports will have long term benefits for Muslim Ummah. Two immediate will be:
1-Muslims will come to know what a great injustice was done to Lahori-Ahmadis by secular politician Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, just to appease Mullah-Mafia in Pakistan.
2-Qadianis will come to know that their Qadiani Khalifas have been DECEIVING them since 1974. They will know QK 3 and 4 CHANGED THEIR BELIEFS INSIDE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY AND TRIED TO ADOPT LAHORI-AHMADIS BELIEFS, to save their skin. Exactly the way QK2 did in 1953 in Munir Inquiry Commission. Qadianis will come to realize their QK3 was lying when he said, “if report publishes half of Pakistan will become Ahmadi (Qadiani)”; and QK4 was lying when he said, “not half, all of Pakistan will become Ahmadi (Qadiani)”.
Publication of this report WILL ONLY BENEFIT Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement representation of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib’s beliefs and claims.
