Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was soooo extreme in his love for Muhammad (saw) that he would smack his own kids if they ever said anything that even seemed to be disrespectful to Muhammad (Saw). In this specific entry, Mirza Masroor Ahmad relates an old story of how crazy MGA was in this regard.
Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was highly loved and adored
He ended up dying tragically, most likely the result of MGA”s death threats to society at large falling back on him, or something like that. However, MGA didn’t care how beloved this child was…he was still willing to hurt him for this type of error. It’s not even clear as to what the kid said. MGA didnt care…it was close enough.
Muslim’s should never hit kids
The general message of the Quran is to be nice to children, however, in context of 7th century Arabia. This general message is allowed to evolve over time. As research shows, if we are kind towards children, they learn easier and better. It was MGA’s job to figure this out and spread this idea…however, he didn’t, he proved himself to be just as backwards as the average Punjabi man. MGA claimed to be a reformer, however, he didn’t reform a basic tent of love for children, and this desperately needed reform.
“Once young Mubarak Ahmad, who everyone thought was the most adored child, uttered something which was contrary to the dignity of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) and the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) gave him a sharp smack for it.”

“Once in the house of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, some boys were playing and got into an argument over something. Mian Ghulam Hussain’s son used bad language with Sheikh Rahmatullah’s son. The Sheikh’s son complained to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. MIRZA GHULAM AHMAD SLAPPED MIAN GHULAM HUSSAIN’S SON A FEW TIMES. Mian Ghulam Hussain’s wife was upset about this and she complained to Mian Ghulam Hussain and expressed displeasure at this act of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in inappropriate words. On which MIAN GHULAM HUSSAIN AND HIS FAMILY WERE ORDERED TO LEAVE QADIAN FOR TWO YEARS. He complied, but because of his faith and sincerity, Mian Ghulam Hussain repented and returned back to Qadian. “
This story with the heading “Trial of Mian Ghulam Hussain“ is an interesting story narrated by Mufti Muhammad Sadiq in his book Zikr-e-Habib (anecdotes/accounts of beloved Mirza Ghulam Ahmad). Along with other things this shows the type of power Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was exercising over his followers. First he takes the liberty to physically punish someone’s child and then he goes on to punish the whole family by kicking them out of their home in Qadian, because they objected to the beating Mirza Ghulam Ahmad gave to their son.
I think that Ahmadis born and brought up in the West do not fully realise the malfeasance of Ahmadiyya leaders (where and when they are in power). In the secular developed countries everyone’s rights are protected by the state. Let Ahmadiyya Jama’at form a larger closed community like Qadian/Rabwah, the real face of Ahmadiyya will show more clearly. The way Jama’at uses coercion to enforce its authority and ideology will be more visible. All such hidden chapters will come back in action.
