Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, Punjab, India (1835-1908)
The Mirzaiyya/Ahmadiyya (also referred to as Ahmadiyya/Qadianiyya) Sect, is an Indian sect created in British occupied India in 1889, by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, Punjab. He claimed to be the Mujaddid (divine reformer), the Promised Messiah (Second Coming of Christ), and the Mahdi awaited by Muslims, all wrapped into one. He also declared that Jesus had migrated to Kashmir and that he himself had appeared in the spirit and power of Jesus. Unfortunately, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad died of diarrhoea in his toilet before he could complete his alleged prophetic mission. People often say that he died in his saffron robe. Islamic authorities considered Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s claims as mere hallucinations. The terms Ahmadi and Ahmadiyya are derived from the name Ahmad, and not exclusive to the Punjabi/Indian Sect. There exist other Ahmadi Movements, for example, in North and West Africa, whose followers are Muslims and recognised as such and behind which Mirzaïs are operating and trying to usurp, such as the Sufi Ahmadiyya Tariqa Movement in Egypt. To avoid confusion, the term Mirzaï-Ahmadi (or Mirzaï-Ghulami-Ahmadi) is used, although Mirzaïs prefer to be identified only as ‘Ahmadis’ because of the term’s affinity with the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and in order to be easily passed as Muslims when they are not so. A Qadiani is really an inhabitant of the county of Qadian in the Indian State of Punjab but this term is also wrongly used to refer to a follower of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
The British occupiers, who killed and ousted the Muslim Mughals in the Hindustan they unified and civilised for over 400 years with representation from all sections of the population, were met with fierce resistance. In 1868, a Commission of Inquiry made up of British MP’s, Church Officials and journalists, was sent to India to assess the causes of the resistance against the British occupiers. And, in an a report called « The Arrival of the British Empire in India » (1871), it was concluded that because the Muslim resistance allegedly followed blindly their religious leaders, the strategy was to choose and put in office a Muslim who was prepared to claim ‘prophethood’ which would preach the abandonment of jihad (struggle or self-defence) against the British. This was also quoted in « Ahmadiyya, the British-Jewish Connections » by Bashir Ahmad M.A., Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, USA, and in various other Church documents.
The family of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, as well as himself, were in the employment of the British forces of occupation which they supported during what became known as the « Islamic War of Independence ». The British found in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad an instrument of division within the Muslim community. He and his movement were financed and supported by the British and they fought alongside the British against the Hindustani Muslim mujahideen. In his letters to the Lieutenant-Governor of Punjab, Feb. 24, 1898 and to British Queen Victoria, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad pledged his loyalty and the loyalty of his followers to the British Government and the British Queen and asked for favours in return for their campaign against Muslims. This policy was true then as it is true today around the world. Mirzaïs-Ahmadis were among the first Indian so-called ‘Muslims’ to be allowed into Britain and the United States. Both the British and Indian governments recognise them as Muslims, but the Islamic world rejects this and consider them as a subversive and dangerous proselytising sect operating as a fifth column in countries where Muslims form a majority and as anti-Muslim elements where Muslims are in a minority. The Mirzaï-Ghulami-Ahmadi Headquarters are found in Haïfa (Israël) and London (UK). The HQ of the non-Muslim Bahaï Sect is also in Israël.
Because they bear Muslim sounding names, the Mirzaïs-Ahmadis infiltrate Muslim organisations as spies and they are recruited by occupiers to attack and murder Muslims especially in times of war. The Indian sect is also used by the Indian Government for its operations in Kashmir and elsewhere in India and they encounter no resistance in building their temples which architecture is based on mosques with minarets. In Pakistan, Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are allies of the CIA/MOSSAD/RAW and their temples form a network of terror against Muslims as well as against the Pakistani Government in an attempt to bring Pakistan to its knees given that Pakistan is a nuclear power and an indispensable ally in the European West’s hegemonic designs in spite of the disapproval of the Pakistani people. According to some sources, former Pakistani Dictator Pervez Musharraf had to embrace the Mirzaï-Ahmadi religion before he could marry Sehba who was a Mirzaï-Ahmadi. Sehba was often referred to as « Queen Sehba. The first Qadiani queen ! » The Dictator’s ensuing politics could not be more revealing.
Attacks on mosques and the killing of Muslims is a frequent occurrence in Iraq and Afghanistan in an attempt to break the will of Muslims to resist the terror of occupation. Although Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are not recognised as Muslims and their Temples not recognised as Mosques in Pakistan and other countries where Muslims are in majority, Pakistanis have respected the rights of Mirzaïs-Ahmadis to follow their sect. But with the infiltration of Zionist mercenaries in Pakistan (Blackwater-Xe and others) and the use of Mirzaïs-Ahmadis Temples by the CIA/MOSSAD to direct operations against the Pakistani people, the escalation of the war in that region has taken a new deadly turning on 28th May 2010 with retaliations on their temple bases. In the 26th November 2008 (11/26) Mumbai Attack, the role of the notorious Jewish centre Chabad Nariman House, renowned as a safe house for covert operations and where suspicious activities were observed over a period of two months preceding the attack, was reported (Ref. Frontier Post, Hindustan Times), and the use of drugs by the attackers confirmed by Indian Police commissioner Vishwas Nagre Paril.
When Omar Waraich, the London Independent newspaper correspondent in Islamabad, reports on « Worshippers slaughtered in deadly 'final warning' », and « A brutal escalation of violence » (Independent of 29th May 2010), he wrongly refers to the Mirzaï-Ahmadi Temples as Mosques and to the Indian sect as an ‘Islamic sect’. The British government and Queen recognise Rafiq Hayat as « President of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK » who gives interviews as a ‘Muslim’, hiding the fact that Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are not recognised as Muslims by Islamic authorities. In fact, most, if not all, of those Muslim-sounding names holding high office in the UK Civil Service, employed as correspondents by the mainstream media and as newscasters on mainstream television are Mirzaïs-Ahmadis and not Muslims. Muslims are not aware of this because they are not properly informed. Under the UK Equal Opportunities legislation, the Mirzaïs-Ahmadis always benefit at the expense of Muslims. Mirzaïs-Ahmadis are often compared with the Harki traitors of Algeria although Harkis are Algerian Muslims of French descent.
