Tensions in Ahmadiyya were bubbling since 1909, things were getting pretty bad, the educated section of the community was already leaning towards Khwaja Kamaluddin, Muhammad Ali and many doctors and rich people. In 1911, Khwaja Kamaluddin directly wrote an essay refuting Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad on Takfir towards non-Ahmadi Muslims. In August of 1912, Khawaja Kamal ud Din traveled to London and started the Ahmadiyya mission at the Woking mosque. He stayed until November of 1914. After being back in India for a few days and finding about the details of the split, on December 24th of 1914, Khwaja Kamaluddin wrote the first ever book on the split in the Ahmadiyya Movement, “The Causes of Internal Dissensions in the Ahmadiyya Movement”, By Khwaja Kamaluddin, Dec-1914.
The poorer section of the community, the Ahmadi mullahs and a few others were clinging to Mahmud Ahmad and the family of MGA. Noorudin was on his death bed, his leg was amputated and he was never the same.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Lahori vs. Qadiani factions
Noorudin was trying to get Ahmadis to agree on Takfir, there was a major dispute, Mahmud Ahmad and his group wanted to call ALL muslims as Kafirs, whereas the soon to be Lahori-Ahmadis wanted to do away with MGA, his prophethood, and Takfir. Nonetheless, Nooruddin was in Lahore in 1913 and made the following statement:
(17 October 1913)——https://www.alislam.org/urdu/knoor/19131017.pdf
“You think ill of others. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din does not work out of hypocrisy. He works only for Allah. This is my belief about him. Of course, he can make mistakes. I am happy with his works. There is blessing in them. Those who spread mistrust about him are hypocrites.” (p. 622)
The reference here would be to the Friday _khutbas_ of Hazrat Maulana Nur-ud-Din on 17 October and 7 November 1913. In these he said:
“You think ill of others. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din does not work out of hypocrisy. He works only for Allah. This is my belief about him. Of course, he can make mistakes. I am happy with his works. There is blessing in them. Those who spread mistrust about him are the hypocrites.” — _Khutba_ of 17 October 1913.
“Kamal-ud-Din has not gone to England for personal ends. He has not cared even for his family. Someone wrote that Kamal-ud-Din has shaved his beard (in England). The other day I saw his photo. The beard is there. I think that even if he had shaved his beard, I would still say about the work for which he has gone there that it is good. If there is some fault in it, I myself overlook it. There is no one who is free from faults.” — _Khutba_ of 7 November 1913.
It is recorded that at this point in the above _khutba_ of 7 November 1913 Maulana Nur-ud-Din was overcome by weakness and had to sit down. He then rose and said: “Can any of you do the work which Kamal-ud-Din is doing? If he commits a fault, what does it matter? He is a man who used to earn thousands.”
_____________________________________________________________________________________________ In a letter to Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, dated 19th December 1913, he writes:
“Each and every hair of my body is pleased with you and is engaged in prayer for you.”
Comments from 1912
In June 1912 he declared in a speech in Lahore to these critics (supporters of Khalifa 2):
“You should first of all try to make yourselves sincere as they are. The people of Lahore are sincere. They love Hazrat [Mirza Ghulam Ahmad] sahib.”
