Dr Gerdien Jonker from Germany took to the podium, during our centenary celebrations, to talk about her life long work in documenting the work of the Ahmadiyya mission in Europe.

Dr Jonker talks about her specific research into our movements work in propagating Islam in Europe and goes into further detail on four incidents that have occurred over the hundred years and looks at their wider impact on Europe.

Press Release: Banning of Ahmadiyya Websites in Pakistan

Amir Aziz, General Secretary, AAIIL

With the induction of the newly-elected Government in Pakistan, the people had high hopes that this will at least give a sigh of relief to the wave of persecution against Muslim minority sects and non-Muslim minorities in the country. However, the Ahmadiyya Community was shocked when their channels, especially that of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Group, were banned.

We are at a loss to understand why the community which, right from its inception, has been against any sort of persecution, not as a matter of policy but as an article of faith, has become the first target of the new Government. Extreme elements in Pakistan are rampant and now the Government’s banning of Ahmadi websites will give these elements further encouragement. To allege that these websites are a cause of annoyance to the extremist elements is flimsy and conceals the Government’s seemingly own nefarious underhanded designs.

Even before the new Government came into being, the Punjab Government took some very unwarranted measures against some presses and binders in Lahore that were doing Ahmadiyya printing. Are Ahmadis in any way involved in the target killings and terrorist acts against the Shia, Bhora, and even Sunni, and business communities in Punjab and other provinces?

Since the inception of Pakistan, Ahmadis have been the most faithful and peaceful of all the communities. Unfortunately, however, they are the people who have been the target of the worst persecution and harassment and even killing.

We appeal to the new Government of Pakistan that such diversionary measures designed to take the public’s attention away from grave social and economic issues should be avoided and all minority groups, including Christians, should be given due guarantee of freedom and security.
Maybe it is on the basis of wrong intelligence reports that the recent measures have been undertaken against the most faithful, peaceful and the well-wishers of Pakistan.

We, members of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Community, strongly feel that such measures of banning our websites as recently taken by the Government will further encourage anti-Government elements and there is every likelihood that they will press for further similar undemocratic and un-Islamic steps which will not only damage the image of Pakistan abroad but will also make things difficult in improving good governance, for which the people have given a high mandate to the Government.

We hope and pray that Allah may guide the Government in the right direction so that the future of Pakistan, which is very much at stake, may once again be on the road to progress and stability.

Best Sunnah for Sunni, Shia, Ahmadiyya and other Muslims to follow


May God power your thinking with peace. This column is in response to correspondence about Muslims judging other Muslims about their faith, and yet invoking the same Islam.

The word Kaffir simply means someone who hides or denies the truth. However, the usage of the word has been derogatory. It’s like the “N” word. You have your preference and mine is not to use the word at all in general conversation without this understanding.

The Prophet did not use it as a derogatory word, but simply meant that those people who did not agree with his version of the truth as an identifier. (Refer to Sura Kafirun – Prophet’s language should be taught as course in civil dialogue)

The Ahmadiyya are Muslims, as they believe in the God, like every other Muslim believes; furthermore, their pledge of allegiance, the Shahadah is same as all other Muslims – La Ilaha Illal Lahu, Muhammadar Rasool Allah. We should be minding our own business rather than worrying about others. Continue reading

Who are the Ahmadiyya?

Sheikh Hamza Yusuf is a convert who has studied Islam and interpretations of Islam by different schools of thought. Here is what he says about Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ali.

[Video] Listen to the Message

In this short speech we show that the Promised Messiah advises us to ignore the preacher and listen to what is being preached. He tells us not to look at the preacher and his motives but what he is preaching and if the message is correct then to accept it regardless of what the preacher’s personal motives may be.

[Podcast] Destruction of Qadian

I visited Qadian recently and the staff of the Qadian proudly showed me their renovations. It is sad to say that rather than renovate they have destroyed the historic buildings in Qadian. The original building had bare brick which has been plastered over, as raising the mosque obscured the Minara tul Massih from view a “new” marble minaret has been constructed, the cemetery has had original foot-paths replaced by paved ones and of course arches build to glorify the false khilafat.

Allah has caused the destruction of Qadian at the hands of the Qadianis themselves to show that their belief that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a prophet is false.

The juice that is against Islam


It seems that narrow minded lawyers in Pakistan are trying to stop people from drinking a juice drink from manufacturer Shezan because it is said that the company is owned by a Qadiani.

Recently, The Express Tribune reported on a decision taken by the Lahore Bar Association. These lawyers, some of whom vocally supported convicted murderer and all-round crazy person Mumtaz Qadri (also a lawyers’ favourite in Rawalpindi and Islamabad, where garland of roses were placed around his ‘blessed’ neck and offers were placed for his ‘holy’ MP5 submachine gun), decided that Shezan a major food and beverage brand should be banned from all court premises because it is owned by every Pakistani bigot’s favourite punching bag, Ahmadis. This was followed up by a vow to “also…ban other products at a later stage”.

Perhaps they should get rid of the atom bomb because it was based on a Jew’s theory that e=mc2 and Christians invented the device based on this theory!

The Express Tribune Blog has a further list of things these wonderful men of law should also be banning if they are to truly save Islam and Pakistan; Continue reading
