In 1891, as MGA claimed to be the second coming of Esa (As), he was immediately disowned by the entire thrust of Muslims in British India. This wasnt MGA’s first Fatwa of Kufr against him. The ulema was always weary of MGA since he stole people’s money and failed to deliver a quality product, i.e. The Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya. Batalvi seemed to be at the forefront of this push to get MGA declared a Kafir.
“””As against this accusation perhaps the Qadiani or his friends may put forth two excuses. Firstly, that although the Qadiani is a claimant to prophethood but has also stated at the same time that the other name of this prophethood in muhaddathiyyat which shows that by his claim of prophethood is only meant the claim of muhaddathiyyat and not in reality the claim of being a nabi…..the reply is that although it has been stated by the Qadiani that he is a claimant to that kind of prophethood the door whereof shall remain open unto the Day of Resurrection, and that muhaddathiyat is another name of this prophethood whereof he is the claimant, but he has, at the same time, put such an interpretation upon the term muhaddathiyat, and explained its nature to be such that it cannot mean anything but prophethood.”””See Muhammad Ali, “Prophethood in Islam” (1915), page 452
