At a groundbreaking conference on Thursday experts gathered in Jerusalem to discuss the status of Pashtune, a tribal naiton of tens of millions of Afghani and Pakistani Muslims who believe they are descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.
Unfortunately no one mentioned about the claim of founder of Ahmadiyya Community who since long declared and verified this fact it in his book Jesus in India. Pashtun and Jew Scholars readers are requested to read this book also.
In the famous book Jesus in India by the founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908), who claimed to be the Promised Messiah and Mahdi has explained the aspect. The main thesis expounded in this treatise is Jesus’ deliverance from death on the Cross and his subsequent journey to India in quest of the lost tribes of Israel whom he had to gather into his fold as foretold by Jesus himself. Starting his journey from Jerusalem and passing through Nasibus and Iran, Jesus is shown to have reached Afghanistan where he met the Jews who had settled there after their escape from the bonds of Nebuchadnezzar. From Afghanistan Jesus went to Kashmir where some Israelite tribes had also settled. He
made this place his home and here he died and lies buried in Srinagar, Kashmir. In this book, Hazrat Ahmad has solved another difficult problem which has for long confounded many a western writer, namely the problem of the resemblance between Christian and Buddhistic teachings and also
between the life of Jesus and that of Buddha, as recorded in their respective Scriptures. Some of these writers hold that Buddhistic teachings must somehow have reached Palestine and were incorporated by Jesus in his own sermons. But there is absolutely no historical evidence to support this theory. A Russian traveller named Nicolas Notovitch stayed for quite some time with Lamas in Tibet and had their religious chronicles translated for him. He is of the opinion that Jesus must have been to Tibet before the Crucifixion and gone back to Palestine after having imbibed Buddhistic teachings. Rejecting both these views, Hazrat Ahmad proves that Jesus came to India only after the Crucifixion and not before, and that it was not he who borrowed Buddha’s teachings but the Buddhists who seem to have reproduced the Gospels in their books. Jesus also
visited Tibet during his travels in India in search of the lost tribes of Israel. He preached his message to Buddhist monks, some of whom were originally Jews. They were deeply impressed by Jesus’ teachings and accepted him as the manifestation of the Buddha, the
Promised Teacher. With faith in him as their Master, they incorporated his teachings into the teachings of the Buddha himself. This book Jesus in India was—it still is—an epoch- making and cataclysmic book. It transformed the theological landscape of Judaism, Pauline Christianity and conventional Islam. The catalyst it introduced was that Jesus—a true prophet of God that he was, was saved from death on the cross, lived long and lies buried in Srinagar Kashmir. While travelling towards Kashmir he passed through Afghanistan and met with lost tribes of Bani Israel. And the claim of people in Afghanistan that they are Bani Israel is true one. The other astonishing thing is that In Christianity and in Islam, it the founder of Ahmadiyya Community who made this claim and has written a very effective, convinicing and logical book.
