‘Ahmadiyya Important Questions, Answers by Ghamidi’

Dr. Khalid Zaheer, student and colleague of Javed Ahmad Ghamdi (another appreciator of LAM literature) in multi-part you tube video produced by his institution has replied to Qadiani Jamaat arguments that they present from Holy Quran to establish “prophet-hood” of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib. By using word ‘Ahmadis’ Dr. Khalid Zaheer means ‘Qadianis’:
‘Ahmadis and Khatme Nubuwwat’
‘Claim of Ahmadies (1)’
‘Claim of Ahmadies (2)’
‘Claim of Ahmadies (3)’
‘Claim of Ahmadies (4)’

Qadiani Tactics of Truth Suppression

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

Submitted by Ikram.

Qadiani Khalifas – II onwards and their insiders have used every tactic in the book for Truth Suppression when confronting history, personal character, external challenges, internal dissension, duping their jamaat, distorting and re-writing history of HMGA, preserving the Khalifat for their family and so on.

Those of you who have debated for years on different forums the validity of Qadiani Khilafat will eerily see the semblance of the following tactics to those applied by Qadiani Jamaat over the past ninety six years. It would be interesting if Rashid and others write examples for these tactics employed.

With regards to Qadiani silence about any criticism about second Khalifa onwards, read tactics 1, 2, 3, 5, 9, 10, 13, 18, 19, 20 and 22 below. May be all of 1 to 25 apply. Enjoy!

Compliment and Question for Qadiani Jamaat

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri

The Qadiani Jamaat has done efforts to clear the honor of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS, by answering allegations made on his blessed character, policies and decisions. Qadiani Jamaat has answered these allegations made by Jew, Christian, and Hindu opponents of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS. Muslims must appreciate and commend them.

Similarly, Qadiani Jamaat has done efforts to clear the honor of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (HMGA) sahib, the Mujaddid of 14th Islamic Century, by answering allegations made on his blessed character, policies and decisions. Although material providing allegations to opponents of HMGA was given by certain Qadiani Jamaat authors, who are respected elders of Qadianis, E.g. in original edition of “Seeratul-Mahdi” authored by Mirza Bashir Ahmad, (the younger brother of Qadiani Khalifa 2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad) revered as “Qamar-ul-Anbiyya” (moon of prophets) by Qadiani Jamaat. Similarly, elder of Qadianis Mir Nasir Nawab (maternal grand father of QK2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad), in his biography ‘Hayat-e-Nasir’ (Life of Nasir) says that HMGA was inflicted with Cholera (Haiza) and passed away as a result of it.

Members of Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement (LAM) believe that all these allegations on pious character of HMGA are FALSE. Still LAM members appreciate Qadiani Jamaat for producing programs on their jamaat TV and YouTube videos to answer the allegations of HMGA opponents.

Unlike above where it was the opponents who alleged, in case of QK2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, his own STAUNCH, followers who had pledged their lives in service of Qadiani Khalifas and Qadiani Jamaat (Waqaf-e-Zindghi) made allegations of severest form on personal character, polices, decisions, actions, and finances of QK2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad. These allegations are far worse than those made by opponents in above two cases. Still Qadiani Jamaat friends NEVER even try to answer them. Rather they say, “we will only discuss beliefs and status of HMGA and QK2”. It is mind boggling that Qadiani Jamaat friends don’t hesitate in defending honor of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS and HMGA, but they don’t even take initiative to answer allegations made on QK2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, by his own former followers, friends and elders of Qadiani Jamaat.

My question to Qadiani Jamaat friends:
Why you do not defend honor of your Qadiani Jamaat Khalifa 2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad?

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib’s prophecy regarding 1965 Indo-Pak war

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri

September 6th is Pakistan’s Defense Day, to commemorate Pakistan’s defensive war with India in 1965.

The day before attack on then West Pakistan, the Indian Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri made a prediction before Indian Assembly that he would be able to announce to them good news within twenty-four hours.

Similarly, the Indian Defence Minister and Commander-in-Chief of their army had told their friends that same day, the September 5th 1965, that they would be having drinks in the Lahore Gymkhana the following day.

The Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad saib, in a Vision on April 29, 1905 was shown a glimpse of the events of the fateful September 6, 1965, winding up with a note of happy tidings.

The Vision goes on:

“God says I will quietly come with My armed forces at a time when no one will have the least inkling of the coming event. Most likely it will be in the small hours of the morning or after some part of the night or there-about.”
“Shastri’s Prediction turned out wrong”

Even a staunch critic of HMGA will agree that Indian military assault on Lahore at 3 A.M. on morning of September 6, 1965 was an absolute surprise, and ultimately Shastri’s prediction turned out wrong. Unfortunately, such critics won’t show moral courage to accept, that HMGA prophecy regarding the event turned out to be true.
