Intro
Ahmadis will go at any length to prove that all of their critics and terrorists, criminals and worthy of death.  In my many dealings with Ahmadis I have learned that they called the teenage students from the Nishter Medical College as terrorists.  Since they have no other way to defend the actions of the Ahmadis of Rabwah, as they brutally assaulted a train full of unarmed teenagers.  In the below, I am giving the testimony of the person who was in-charge of the Nishter Medical Students as they toured the Punjab in May of 1974.  He was on the train when it stopped in Rabwah on May 22nd, and was on the train when Ahmadis terrorized innocent teenagers on May 29th.

Mr. Arbab Alam was interviewed by the Samdani commission in mid-June of 1974

 “””Mr. Arbab Alam, President of the Nishter Medical College Students Union, Multan, on Wednesday expressed  the view that the Rabwah incident was a part of the Mirzai’s plan to grab power in the country with the help of senior Army officers of their community.  

The witness expressed the view when Mr. Rafique Ahmad Bajwa, counsel for Majlis-i-Amal, Tahufuz-i-Khatm-i-Nabuwwat, Qadiyani Mahasaba Committee and Pakistan Ittehad Party elicited the witness’s impression about the incident during the cross-examination before the Tribunal comprising Mr. Justice K.M.A. Samdani, inquiring into the Rabwah incidents.

Mr. Arbab stated that “my impression is that May 29 incident at Rabwah was the creation of a plan hatched by the Mirzais to create large-scale disturbances in the country and to use those disturbances to bring the Army into power and thus to gain control of the country through the Ahmadi Generals.  According to my information 4 or 5 senior most Generals after the Chief of Staff, Pakistan Army were Ahmadis.

Replying to cross examination he further states that the basis of his information was the fact that the incident of May 22 at Rabwah railway station was not serious enough to justify the happenings of May 29.  Another reason which obliged him to form this impression, he said, was that one of the students, beaten up in the attack had later told him that while belabouring him, an assailant was that saying that, “it was wrong to consider Mirzais a minority.  He (assailant) declared that they were in majority and would rule the country.”

Cross-examined, the witness stated: “I know that Air Marshal (Retd) Zafar Chaudhry is a Mirzai”.  He agreed to the counsel’s suggestion that the removal of Mr. Zafar Chaudhry from service had also made some contribution to the incident.  “In my opinion.” he said.  “The Mirzais tried to create disturbances before other high ranking officers of their community could be removed from the Army”.

Replying to a question, he stated that ever since the PPP gained power in the country it had turned against the students belonging to Islami Jamiat-e-Tulaba (IJT) and their support.  It is also true, he said, that in this respect, “they had stooped so low that no civilised government would do that”.  He further stated that “Khatam-e-Nubawaat was a part of of the creed of IJT.

Cross-examined by Mr. Ejaz BUssain Batalvi, the witness said that as a medical man he would treat all patients irrespective of their caste, creed or faith.

Replying to another question he said that he had not seen anybody resorting to firing at Rabwah on May 29.

In reply to a question, he stated that a number of distinguished persons including Mian Mohammad Tufail, Mr. Mohammad Sadiq Malhi, a Punjab Minister President of the local Muslim League Multan and an MPA of Sadiqabad had visited him in Multan to inquire about his welfare.  Replying to another question, the witness stated that “I do not know if the effects of Ahmadi students were destroyed and set on fire in the college hostel after the incident”. 

Mr. Hussain Bakhsh, Train Examiner, Multan Cantonment stated that the bogie of the Chenab Express in which the students were travelling had been detached from the train at Multan to assess the damage suffered by it.  He stated since the police directed the railway staff not to carry out any repairs as it would be required for inspection, no repairs had been carried out so far.  He stated that when, “I examined the bogie, there was no luggage.  However there were some stones and pieces of broken glass which Mr. Abdul Sattar, SHO, Multan had collected there.

Recording his evidence, Mr. Aftab Mahmood, a Fourth Year student of the NMC stated that one of the assailants had hit him on the head with a bicycle chain during the attack.  Earlier, one of the them had hit him with a hockey stick.  Later a group of people had beaten him with lathis.  During the attack, he said his trousers were torn and his eye-glasses fell down.  After the incident, a police man came to him but by that time, “I was almost unconscious and I do not know what he told the students, I gained senses when I was taken to the Nishter Hospital.”.   Cross-examined by Mr. Ejaz Hussain Batalvi, the witness conceded that he was present in the court room when the evidence of Mr. Arbab Alam was being recorded.

Mr. Khalid Abdullah narrated the incidents of May 22 and May 29.  He stated that a group of persons had dragged him out of the bogie on May 29 and gave him a beating after throwing him on the platform.  He also produced his blood-stained shirt before the Tribunal.

Mr. Rafiq Ahmad Bajwa on Wednesday placed on record a concise statement in respect of the viewpoint to be represented before the Tribunal on behalf of the Majlis-a-Amal, Tahafuz-a-Khatam-e-Nubawat, Qadiyani Mahasaba Committee and Pakistan Ittchad Party.

The statement reads as under:

“Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, head of the Ahmadia community as an agent of the British Government made himself available to conspire against the Muslims who had refused to reconcile with the British Government as conquerors of India and it was with this purpose in view that he proclaimed himself to be a Mujadid, Masih-a-Maood, a Nabi and also assumed various other titles.  His proclamation to the effect that he was Masih-e-Maood and that there could be a prophet after the Prophet (peace be upon him), was a part of the conspiracy against the Indian Muslims for political resources.  

The Ahmadis have all along been opposed to the creation of Pakistan and after the creation of Pakistan they have always acted as agents to foreign powers  and have played an active part in causing damage to Islam, the ideology of Pakistan, the society of Pakistan and the State.”

“The Ahmadis have been looking forward to be a supreme power in Pakistan so that they may achieve their ultimate end with the least difficulty.  The incident of May 29 was a result of premeditated conspiracy for the aforementioned ends where by high-ups of the Ahmadiyya community intended to create disturbances and situation of law and order in Pakistan so that the intervention of the Army be justified.  It was their design to have a head of a state of their own choice through the intervention of the Army.  They had also a design that in case they may not be successful in having an effective intervention of the Army, then a rift in the Army be created to justify foreign intervention.

“They designed to make believe the foreign governments and the United Nations that they were not safe in Pakistan and, therefore the foreign governments and the United Nations may intervene.

“A person who believes that there can be a prophet after the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him), violates the injunctions of the Quran to the effect of rendering himself a non-Muslim.  A person who proclaims and propagates in a manner whereby a part of the Holy Quran is impliedly or expressly repealed, renders himself a non-Muslim. 

“The stand taken by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad vis-a-vis being an Ummati and is only a Zilli and ‘Barozi Nabi” is treacherous to mislead the Muslims in general with alterior motives and for his own ends.

“It is necessary that the belief that there can be a prophet after the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) be banned from promulgation of an effective law, violation of which be made penally punishable.
