Mirza Hairat Dehlvi seems to have owned the Curzon Gazette. He was born as Muhammad Umrao Baig,in Dehli in 1868, he completed his education in Arabic College Dehli. He was employed by Munshi Navalkishore at Akhbar Avadh. He wrote a commentary on Holy Quran, which was published from Curzon Press Dehli in 1901. He also translated famous Ahadiths books of Bukhari, Mishkat, and Darmi in urdu. He authored books on Seerat Rasul s.a.w, in six volumes, wrote books on biographies of Hazrat Abubakar r.a., Hazrat Ali r.a. Hazrat Aisha r.a and Hazrat Syedah Fatima r.a. beside having published some other books. Mirza Hairat was the owner of Curzon Press Dehli, where he was publishing famous weekly Curzon Gazettes since 1901. He challenged Mirza Ghulam Qadiani against his fake claims during Ghulam Qadiani,s visit to Dehli in 1891 and in 1905, he also wrote at the time of MGA’s death (see in the below).
____________________________________________________________________________________________“Nooruddin” by Syed Hasanat Ahmad, 2003 edition, online edition. Again, this Ahmadi author doesn’t give a proper reference. Nonetheless, see pages 122, 123:
“””Nothing now is left with the Mirzais (a derogatory term used for Ahmadis) after the demise of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, the Movement has lost its head, and the person, who has become head, only knows the Holy Qur’an and he will only be reading and lecturing on the Holy Qur’an in the mosque.
At the annual Ahmadiyya conference in December, 1908, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih Ira delivered a vigorous speech. The editorial of the Curzon Gazette commented upon it thus: “He
could only teach the Holy Qur’an,” Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih Ira said, “Let God help me to teach them the Holy Qur’an so that they can understand it.”””””
MGA’s obituary in the Curzon Gazette
Curzon Gazette, Delhi, 1st June 1908
“The services of the deceased, which he rendered to Islam in confrontation with the Christians and the Arya Samajists, deserve the highest praise. He completely changed the flow of the debate, and laid the foundations of a new literature in India.
“We admit, not because of our being Muslims but being seekers after truth, that the top most Arya Samaj leader or Christian missionary could not dare open his mouth to confront the late Mirza sahib. The incomparable books which he wrote in refutation of the Arya Samaj and Christian creeds, and the shattering replies he gave to the opponents of Islam, we have not seen any rational refutation of these except that the Aryas have been hurling abuse at the Founder and the teachings of Islam in an uncouth manner, without being able to give a sensible reply. Although the deceased was a Punjabi, yet his pen was so powerful that today in the whole of the Punjab, even in the whole of India, there is no author of such power…and it is true that, on reading some of his writings, one goes into a state of ecstasy. Although he did not receive any regular education in Arabic language, literature or grammar, he gained such a proficiency in Arabic by his God-given intellect and nature that he could write it quite naturally…
“His followers are not only common and unlearned people, but include able and bright graduates, viz., B.A., M.A., and very learned Ulama. It is a matter of no small pride for a religious leader of this day that persons educated on traditional lines as well as persons educated on modern lines, both types, should become his followers. Surviving the heat of predictions of his death, opposition, and criticism, he cleared his way to reach the highest pinnacle of progress.”
