Chief Justice Muhammad Munir presided over the 1954 Ahmadiyya riots inquiry. However, before that he worked with Zafrullah Khan in 1947 in terms of the Punjab Boundary Commission. In fact, years later (1964), he lamented how Zafrullah Khan and the Ahmadi’s chose to be considered non-Muslim during this boundary discussion and thus caused the Gurdaspur district to go to India, since Muslim’s weren’t in majority. Nevertheless, the story that we are presenting today is in terms of the first African-American Ahmadi imam and his reminisces from the 1954 court case, since he accompanied the Khalifa to court. As you can see by the explanation in the below, the Khalifa and Justice Munir were fast friends, and he didn’t allow anyone to ask the Khalifa any tough questions.

“Days I remember” by Justice Muhammad Munir
“In connection with this part of the case, I cannot reframe from mentioning an extremely unfortunate circumstance. I have never under stood why the Ahmadis [i.e. Qadianis—followers of QK2] submitted a separate representation. The need for such representation could arise only if the Ahmadis [Qadianis] did not agree with the Muslim League’s case-it self a regrettable possibility. Perhaps, they intended to reinforce the Muslim League’s case; but in doing so, the game the facts and figures for different parts of Gash Shankar, thus giving prominence to the fact that, in the areas between the river Bein and the river Basantar, the non-Muslims Constituted a majority and providing argument for the Contention that if the area between the rivers Ujh and Bein went to India, the area between the Bein river and Basantar river would automatically go to India. As it is, this area has remained with us. But the stand taken by the Ahmadis [Qadianis] did create considerable embarrassment for us in the case of Gurdaspur.”
