I found this entire essay on reddit. Ahmadis are now working on discrediting the Imam.
See here: https://www.reddit.com/r/freespeech_ahmadiyya/comments/7gwgku/imam_tawhidi_goading_qasim_rashid_and_linda/
So this tweet happened:
If you follow the thread, you’ll see some comments from Ahmadis chiming in about Mirza Ghulam Ahmad clarifying numerous times he’s not suggesting anyone kill or cause physical harm of any kind, to Christians. Instead, he’s using the word “demolish” to talk about defeating an ideology so convincingly, no serious person takes it seriously. This much I’ll defend MGA’s statement.
However, what’s lost in that thread, is that coming out to say that Christianity is the “perfect manifestation of Satan” is quite over the top.
As is usual with Ahmadiyya Islamic apologetics, there’s a long convoluted reasoning and argumentation process that builds up to that. However, it is also true that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was personally focused and troubled by Christianity gaining a foothold in 19th century India–often pummeling Islam in books, magazines, and other discourse.
Much of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s writings on Christianity seem to come from a place of, “if you can make fun of my religion, I’ll ridicule yours”.
On the one hand, this doesn’t seem very messiah-like. We can disagree with Christianity without having to resort to hyperbole.
On the other hand, Islamic prophecy about the Latter Days “messiah” talks about “breaking the cross” and “killing the swine”. There are all kinds of apocalyptic end times imagery present in the hadith that orthodox Muslims wanted MGA to fulfill before they followed him. For Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to suggest he is a peaceful messiah and still fulfill this mission/role, he has to come across as “destroying” Christianity intellectually.
Statements like those shown in Imam Tawhidi’s tweet of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s writings don’t help Mirza Ghulam Ahmad come across as reasonable or even rational.
