Qadiani Jamaat Needs Khalifa Like Pope Francis

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri


When Qadiani Khalifa 2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad envisioned his organization to work the way Vatican City and its cardinals, bishops, and priests inside and outside Vatican worked, he meant it to work beyond election of Qadiani Khalifa and role of Cardinals to keep Qadiani Khalifa in power for life.

Recently PBS TV, USA telecast an investigative show in Frontline series. Title and link to episode is provided at the bottom of this post. People who have read the literature produced by former Qadianis in last 100 years such as Miyan Zahid of Mubailiah Group, Mazhar-ud-Din Multani, Haqqiqat Passand Party members (many), Mirza Shafeeq (author of ‘Sher-e-Sadoom’. Translation: ‘City of Sodomy’), Munir-ud-Din Ahmad (author of ‘Dhaltay Saey’), Tahir Rafiq (author of ‘Rabwah-Ka-Rasputin’. Translation: ‘Rasputin of Rabwah’), photographer Abdul Razaq etc can find many similarities between Vatican Church, from Pope to common priest; and Qadiani Organization from Khalifa to common Murrabi and Qadiani teachers of Murrabi Training Schools.

I hope not too far in future Qadiani Organization can show another similarity like Vatican Church and elect a Qadiani Khalifa like Pope Francis. And he starts cleaning Qadiani organization from Moral Corruption, Financial Corruption and Religious Corruption just the way Pope Francis is doing.

It will be a real miracle if an impartial TV company can make a documentary exposing Qadiani Organization the way PBS exposed Vatican.

  1. It is in the nature of bureaucratic organizations to protect themselves. This applies to the Qadianis as well.

    This article, about a Catholic parish in the US looking for solutions to their problems, suggests that even Pope Francis may have limited ability to help. 

  2. The reason this PBS-Frontline documentary was made and attracts our attention is because:

    @ 00:49:52 – COMMENTATOR: “The Vatican is a world on its own, an independent state.”

    The said documentary about corruption in Vatican is only highlighting what has come to light since 1960s, whereas the corruption goes back as long as it’s entire history. This kind of corruption is bound to occur where ever and whenever there is absolute authority in one person:

    @ 00:50:05 – FR. THOMAS DOYLE: “The Vatican is the last absolute monarchy in the world today. The pope when he is selected is answerable to no human power. He is absolute authority over the entire Roman Catholic Church, direct authority that reaches down to individual members. He is the supreme judge, the supreme legislator and the supreme executive.

    The last pope, Pope Benedict tried to clean the corruption, but he could not, because:

    @ 00:18:57 – FR. THOMAS DOYLE: “…but he (-Pope Benedict) was the creature of institutional church, that is the only life he knew. He could not do what was necessary.”

    Individually, the popes in Vatican have ranged from scoundrels to pious, but even the pious amongst them have never been able to clean the Church because:

    @ 00:19:06 – ROBERT MICKENS, Vatican Correspondent, The Tablet: “He (-Pope Benedict) is a shy man, and he is a very kind man, and they made him pope. He had absolutely zero pastoral experience.  Joseph Ratzinger should have never ever been a bishop. He did not have the gifts, the chrism. He is a theologian. He is a catechist. He did not have the administrative skills.”

    Many honest people initially attracted to spiritual allure of the Church soon become disillusioned and not only left it, rather speak against the very institution and its religion:

    @ 00:39:57 – FR. SIMON ALFIERI: “Ordained in Rome, living in the parish in Rome, I became disillusioned. Because, I saw among the priests, there were many contradictions. The hunger for power, ambition, many priests, obviously not all of them…”

    The current pope, Pope Francis, is apparently an outsider, the first non-European, which is the only significant credential of his to possibly be able to clean the Chruch. At least, his self-criticism sounds too familiar about monarchs. Any seat of absolute power attracts cronies who put veil on the eyes of the emperor, who may then walk about without clothes, but no one dare tell him:

    @ 01:13:24 – La Republica, an excerpt of the newspaper: In an interview with a leading Italian atheist, the pope (-Francis) said: “Heads of the Church have often been narcissists, flattered and thrilled by their courtier. The court is the leprosy of the papacy… This Vatican-centric vision neglects the world around it and I will do everything to change it.”

    Watching the said documentary gives one a feeling of Déjà vu, as if one has seen such a storyline somewhere else. Each of the above comments equally and fully applies to Qadiani Jamaat, right from their Khalifa down to their lowest murrabis on their payroll and the organization that they run between themselves. One person saw an inevitable corruption similar to Vatican early on and placed checks and balances in his organization. That person was Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad when he separated the spiritual headship, later known as the Khalifa, from the administrative body, the Anjuman. No scandal, true or false, of the nature alluded to in the Frontline documentary, including misuse of funds or power, ever emerged under Hazrat Nooruddin, the only Khalifa of the Mujaddid. Why? It was so becasue of the administrative checks and balances that prevented conflict of interest. Thereafter, came the reign of Qadiani Khalifas II-V and the administrative setup they established is not too different from that of the Vatican. The world is witness now as to how they too destroyed the mission of the Messiah by establishing their own equivalents of a paid hierarchy of pope, cardinals, bishops and priests. This paid cronyism full of perks was also foreseen by Maulana Nur-ud-Din which one reads in his last letter to Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, in England, where he advises Khwaja not to hire paid employees to spread the word of Allah:

    “Qadian, 21 January 1914…When someone does worthwhile work, it will be a sincere person who does it. Those who do it for payment don’t work successfully. All those who worked for the Holy Prophet Muhammad were honorary. That is how the work was done. As soon as honorary work was replaced by paid work, everything perished…” [The True Succession, p. 80, pdf  link]

    If the Qadianis have woken up to the corruption among their administrative midst, then their solution many lie in what was discussed in blog-post with regards to publication of the book “The True Succession” by Dr. Zahid Aziz:

    The discussion leaves the bottom line with Qadianis which is actually a solution for their ignominy. After having retracted their one false claim after another, the Qadianis are left with one last hindrance before they too will line up with intentions of this Jamaat as established by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib. The final knot that remains around their necks and souls is that they have to reestablish the independence of Sadr-Anjuman as envisioned by the Promised Messiah. Once they undo this knot, their Jamaat will be what was under Hazrat Maulana Nur-ud-Din. Thereafter, they may continue to have their Khandan-e-Khilafat as a spiritual lineage, while the body of their Jamaat will be then freed up in service of Islam and not of some Khalifa that they are mentally in servitude of now.

    From Zahid Aziz:

    At least the Pope is not elected on a hereditary basis. Such a basis makes it impossible for many capable persons to become leader, who might well be far better suited to the role than those merely born in a family.
