I have researched the split in the Ahmadiyya movement very closely…somehow, Mahmud Ahmad and Muhammad Ali purposely avoided talking about Chiragh Din of Jammu (Jamooni) and his claim of prophethood which caused MGA to ex-communicate him and to organize a boycott against him.
What’s really interesting here is that MGA had just claimed prophethood in Nov 1901, with the publishing of his announcement, “Eik Ghalti Ka Izala”. Amrohi had even written a letter to some people who didn’t quite understand this “change in belief” that MGA had just done, his letter can be found here.
He said while criticizing a person named ‘Charag Deen’ who announced that he would reconcile Christianity and Islam: “We have no accord with Christianity, because it is all evil and wrong… How can we reconcile (with the Christians) while our religion and our holy book consider the entire Christianity to be filthy and evil?… Woe! He (Charag Deen) considered the Disgusting Christianity in the same degree with Islam!”.
(Announcement dated 23/04/1902, Announcements, Vol 2)
Chiragh deen of jammu claimed prophethood and mirza boycotted charagh deen (ref: ruhani khazain, vol 18 page 242). MGA published an ad in rohani khazain about charagh deen jamu to inform everyone that he is no more in his community or in jamaat e ahmdiya. (ref: rohani khazain vol 18. page 239).

“”””Thus, first, Maulawi Rusul Baba, resident of Amritsar is worth mentioning who wrote a book in my refutation; he used very abusive language and lied out of love for this temporary life. Eventually, in keeping with the promise of God, he was destroyed by the plague. After him, there was another person named Muhammad Bakhsh, a Deputy Inspector at Batala, who girded up his loins for hostility and persecution. He too died of the plague. After him another person,
named Charagh Din of Jammu, arose. He claimed to be a Messenger. He referred to me as the Dajjal [Antichrist] and claimed that during a dream, Hadrat ‘Isa had given him his staff that he might kill this Dajjal with the staff of ‘Isa. He, too, along with both of his sons died of plague
on 4 April 1906 in accordance with my prophecy that was specifically about him and was published during his lifetime in my booklet Dafi‘ul-Bala’i wa Mi‘yaru Ahlil-Istifa’. Where did the staff of ‘Isa go with which he sought to kill me? And what happened to his ‘revelation’, namely اّنی لمن المرسلین [‘I indeed am of the Messengers’]? Alas! Most people pronounce their egoistic suggestions to be revelation prior to self-purification. This is why they eventually die in ignominy and disgrace.””””
ROR of May 1906 mentions Chiragh Din and MGA’s prayer against all false prophets

ROR of June 1906 also mentions Chiragh Din
