I have an interesting story to share. It seems that there was an incident from roughly 1891–1906, wherein the young wife of MGA (Nusrat Jehan Begum) was breaking the “customary” laws of parda in the Indian Sub-continent. Normally, women arent allowed to roam freely in this culture, nor are they allowed to frolic around men and etc. Personally, I dont care what women do, I grew up in the USA, we allow women to do whatever it is that they want.
Parda laws in Rabwah
Afzal Upal has covered the strict segregation laws that Ahmadis abide by. He also discusses how in Rabwah, purda was a norm and strictly enforced. Ahmadis seem to have developed these extreme beliefs after they moved to Pakistan in 1948.
MGA’s wife was a sex escort for Noorudin?
It is rumored that Noorudin fathered the children of Nusrat Jehan, not MGA. This is plausible, since at the death of MGA, Nusrat Jehan claimed to be the “laundi” aka “escort” of Noorudin. She made many other controversial statements upon the death of Nooruddin.
The Summary of the story from Seeratul Mahdi
“””Mirza Bashir Ahmad in his book Seeratul Mahdi part 1 page 57, writes that
“Stated to me by Hakim Nooruddin that once Hazrat sb was proceeding on a journey and waiting for the train at Railway Station which was to arrive after some time. Hazrat sb (MGAQ) started a walk with Bivi Sahiba (Nusrat Jehan) on the Railway Station. Watching hazard sb and Bivi sahiba walking together at Railway Station in front of peoples present there. Molvi Abdul Karim who has excessive feelings of honour and religious sentiments came to me and said many peoples are watching, plz ask hazrat sb to make Bivi sahiba sit some where. Molvi Nooruddin (who knew Mirza Qadiyani very well), said I can,t do that you may ask him yourself.
After a while Molvi Abdul Karim himself went to Hazrat sb and said huzur many peoples are around, better Bivi sahiba may be seated somewhere. Hazrat sb said mind your business I am not convinced of such kind of Purdah (Hijab). Feeling dejected,Molvi Abdul Karim came back to me. Then I (Nooruddin) said to him have u got the reply.? , ! !!”””
