Wagah, Dec 22 (ANI): Thousands of Ahmediyya Muslims gathered at the Wagah Border post for their annual community congregation beginning from December 26 in the town of Qadian in Gurdaspur District of Punjab.

Though, Ahmediyyas regard themselves to be part of the Muslim faith, they have been branded as “non-Muslims” by the Government of Pakistan as per the 1974 Constitutional amendment which declared them as “heretical”.

The Ahmediyya Muslim sect considers its Founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani, to be the Promised Messiah and the Mahdi,  foretold by the Holy Prophet Mohammad, may peace be on him, which is opposed by mainstream Muslims who consider it blasphemous.

Mohammad Ahmed Zafar, an Ahmediyya Muslim from Pakistan said that he was extremely happy to be in India and thanked the Indian government for being lenient with the visas.

“We have come here for the annual conference to be held in Qadian which will start from the 26th of this month. By the grace of god, we are thankful to the government of India for granting visas to so many of us. The preparations and facilities here are very good. I am really thankful to you all,” said Zafar.

  1. This is a wrong observation – “Though, Ahmediyyas regard themselves to be part of the Muslim faith, they have been branded as “non-Muslims” by the Government of Pakistan as per the 1974 Constitutional amendment which declared them as “heretical”.

    The Ahmediyya Muslim sect considers its leader, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed, as the last Prophet which is opposed by mainstream Muslims who consider it blasphemous”

    Could the people concerned, please, amend, this statement as our community is suffering untold miseries due to such reporting. Please get your facts right before printing such questionable statements.

    We DO NOT believe in Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), as the last prophet, God forbid. Our belief in him is as a Messiah and Mahdi of the Later Days as foretold by the Last Law Giving Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

  2. I agree with the comment of Razia and would request the people responsible to be very very careful what they write and what they print.
    Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was the Promised Messiah, The Mahdi as foretold by The Holy Prophet Mohzammad(S.A.W)and not the Last Prophet..
    You are giving our radical Muslims, reasons to spread hatred against us…

  3. The last law bearing prophet was Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani (AS) was the Imam Mahdi, Promised Messiah and subordinate prophet (with no new law but to revive the religion) to Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

  4. When you are in public then should expect all type of remarks and writings. Some times even press people quote the things which Ahmadis do not utter. We have to show more patience and open heart. Not understood why some of our members get annoyed on remarks or writings of others. Clarification should be given without getting angry.
