Before MGA claimed to be the second coming of Esa (As)…Khawaja Ghulam Fareed Sahib Of Chachran praised MGA, since he knew MGA’s family and etc, he did this out of respect. Many people praised MGA out of respect pre-1891. What’s scandalous in this case if that Khawaja Ghulam Fareed Sahib Of Chachran died in 1901, MGA then published his old writings from pre-1891, as he attempted to fool his readership into believing that many high ranking and respected Muslims supported MGA.
The book wherein Khawaja Ghulam Fareed Sahib Of Chachran praised MGA
The book in which Khwaja Ghulam Fareed mentioned Hazrat Mirza sahib is called Isharat-i Fareedi, compiled by his son in Persian. When this book was much later on translated into Urdu and published in Pakistan (in the 1970s), a long preface was added saying that the favourable references to Hazrat Mirza sahib have been removed because they were inserted by a Qadiani agent who had infiltrated into the Khwaja sahib’s disciples.
Additional arguments from that book
Another argument is this. A judge in Bahawalpur (area where Khwaja sahib lived) declared Ahmadis as non-Muslim in a judgment in the 1950s. Subsequently, after the judge’s death, a member of Khwaja sahib’s movement saw the judge in a dream, sitting in paradise. The judge asked him: Do you know why Allah has blessed me with paradise? The man said: why? The judge said: I have been rewarded because I declared Ahmadis as non-Muslim in a court case.
The quote wherein Khawaja Ghulam Fareed Sahib Of Chachran praised MGA
“Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani is also right, and he is right and truthful in his affair. Day and night he is engrossed in the service of God Almighty. He has given his life for the progress of Islam and raising aloft the cause of the Faith. I can see nothing wrong or bad in him at all. If he has claimed to be the Mahdi and Messiah, that too is among the things which are permissible.”
(Isharat-i Faridi, compilation of the talks of Khawaja Ghulam Farid, by his son, p. 179)
