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

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.

  1. I myself remember watching a news bulletin on BBC television (no running news in those days, just two or three short bulletins a day, and only two TV channels in UK, one of them BBC), which stated:

    Unofficial reports from Delhi say that Lahore has been captured.

    That summer of 1965, Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi was visiting us in England, and he was present as well. Naturally we were very depressed. I used to go to the newspaper shop every morning and bring home every newspaper (maybe 6 or 7) so we could read all news available.

    The Pakistani community in the UK was solidly united and much money was collected to be sent to Pakistan.

  3. I am wondering that how prediction of a “prophet” is different from that of a astrologist or a palmist: both are vague, options are built in so as to serve fit-all description. Was God in doubt about the hour of war or the “prophet” ambiguous about the message(for heavens sake!)? For such prediction any interpretation is possible but the question remains, what purpose does it serve except creating doubts in mind.

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: Leave that about which you are in doubt for that about which you are in no doubt. (May Allah Guide you people)

  4. What is your opinion about the prophecies made by the Holy Prophet Muhammad, for example the prophecy about the victory of the Romans after their defeat by the Persians? Rev. J.M. Rodwell, who translated the Quran into English in the 1800s, comments as follows on 30:3 where this prophecy is announced:

    “The Muhammadans appeal to this passage as a clear proof of the inspiration of their prophet. But it should be borne in mind that the vowel points of the consonants of the Arabic word for defeated in verse 1, not being originally written, and depending entirely on the speaker or reader, would make the prophecy true in either event, according as the verb received an active or passive sense in pronunciation. The whole passage was probably constructed with the view of its proving true in any event.” (Bolding is mine).

    What is your opinion about Rodwell’s allegations?
