Ahmadi’s do not follow the law of the land wherever they live, they only say this as a form of political correctness. In reality, they only follow whatever their Khalifa tells them. Nevertheless, the Saudi Arabian government and specifically King Faisal told the Muslim world in the early 1970’s that Ahmadi’s weren’t to be trusted. Zafrullah Khan and the Mirza family seem to have fell out of favor with King Faisal and the entire Muslim world in this era. It was most likely a result of OPEC and how the Arab states were trying to fight off Israel and even enacted a crushing oil embargo on the USA for supporting Israel. Ahmadi’s were finally seen as pro-British, Pro-USA and anti-Muslim world. Subsequently, Arabia asked Bhutto to declare Ahmadi’s as Non-Muslims and thus prevent them from performing Hajj or even entering Saudi. Nowaday’s, in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, if anyone is suspected of being an Ahmadi, they are immediately deported.

Ahmadiyya in Saudi Arabia
There are no accurate figures for the number of Ahmadis in Saudi Arabia. However, Ahmadi Muslims are a small community, primarily foreign workers from India and Pakistan and some from other countries. There is an increasing number of Saudi citizens who belong to the movement. Since the Ahmadiyya faith is banned in the country, there are no Ahmadi mosques. Ahmadis generally gather together in private properties for their daily prayers, thereby limiting exposure to the local authorities.
In a 2006–2007 nationwide campaign to track down and deport Ahmadi Muslim foreign workers, the Saudi religious police arrested 56–60 Ahmadi Muslims of Indian, Pakistani and Syrian origin from major cities across the country. In late December 2006, several dozen Saudi police raided a private guest house in Jeddah in Western Saudi Arabia, and detained 49 Ahmadi Muslims, including women, children and infants. A fortnight later, in early January 2007, the police arrested 5 Ahmadis from major industrial cities of Jubail and Dammam in the Eastern Province. The police failed to arrest the leader of the movement in Dammam, because he was out of the country at the time. In February of the same year, two more Ahmadi guest workers were arrested from the capital of the country Riyadh, in central Saudi Arabia. The arrests came under the orders of Minister of Interior Prince Nayef, and targeted Ahmadis solely because of their faith. Despite calls from international human rights groups, by April 2007, 58 Ahmadi Muslims were deported to their country of origin.
In May 2012, Saudi authorities arrested two Saudi citizens because of their conversion to the Ahmadiyya movement. Saudi officials encouraged them to abandon their beliefs, and three months later, they were detained. They have not been released since then.
