    From Zahid Aziz:

    Dear Adam: There has been brief discussion of this already on this blog. Please go to this comment.

    As far as we know, the Qadiani Jamaat regards it as lawful for a male member of their Jamaat to marry outside their community, whether it be with a Muslim woman or a woman of the “people of the book” (which includes Hindus according to Ahmadiyya beliefs).

    As to marriage of women of their community,  although they prohibit marriage outside their community (even with other Muslims), yet the position they adopted at the Munir Court of Enquiry in 1954 in Pakistan was as follows, as summed up by the judges in their Report:

    “and as regards the allegation of their not permitting their daughters to marry non-Ahmadis, the position taken is that the marriage of an Ahmadi girl with a non-Ahmadi is not void though in the interests of the girl concerned the parents are advised to seek for her a husband from her own community, and in this connection instances of other sects and jama’ats who follow a similar practice are cited.” (page 198 of Report)
