In terms of Syed Abdul Latif, Ahmadiyya editors/writers refuse to mention that this guy was given money from the govt. of Afghanistan to go for Hajj, however, he misappropriated those funds and when to Qadian and probably gave MGA the money (See the Afghan Martyrs, by Bashir Ahmad Rafiq 1995, page 45).
An additional reference that we need to find
Frank Martin, an Italian engineer serving at that time in Kabul, was a witness to the whole event. He writes:
- “This new man (Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani), therefore, if his preaching was listened to, would upset Muhammadanism, and as he preached that Mussalmans must regard Christians as brothers, and not as infidel, this would render useless the Amir’s chief weapon, Jehad (religious war), in case of English or Russian aggression. So the Amir, when he heard of all this, sent word to the Moullah (Latif) to return, and the Moullah did so, preaching the new religion as he came and as soon as he was well within the boundaries of the country, he was made prisoner and brought to Kabul.”
