Maulana Ghulam Hasan Khan Niazi was the first person of Peshwari descent to convert to Ahmadiyya. He famously got many other pathan’s to convert to Ahmadiyya. He married his daughter to Mirza Bashir Ahmad in 1902. The age of his daughter is unknown, we have to assume that she was less than 12. This photograph was taken during Lord Headley’s visit to India during 1927/28. He is on the left, with Maulana Ghulam Hasan Khan of Peshawar, who was a prominent figure in the Ahmadiyya Movement since the time of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

When Noorudin became Khalifa in 1908
Maulana Ghulam Hasan Khan was the most famous Ahmadi who refused to give his bait to Noorudin in 1908, he stayed in this condition until 1914. After the election of the 2nd Khalifa, he sided with the Lahori-Ahmadi’s and seems to have never returned to Qadian.
All of his other children were married off to Lahori-Ahmadis.
On 8th November, 1928 Maulana Ghulam Hassan Khan Niazi’s son, Abdul Lateef Khan, was married to the daughter of Dr. Mirza Yaqub Beg (of the Lahori faction).
He accused Muhammad Ali and other prominent Lahori-Ahmadi’s of misappropriation of monies.
He shocked the Lahori-Ahmadi’s as he moved to Qadian and entered the bait of the Khalifa and was buried in Bahishti Maqbara. In addition to these sons and three daughters, Maulana Ghulam Hassan Khan at the time of his death in 1943 was survived by 29 paternal grandsons and 24 sons and daughters by his three daughters.
Maulana Ghulam Hasan Khan died in Qadian on 2nd February 1943 at the age of 94 years (having joined the Qadiani Jamaat three years earlier). On Friday 5th February 1943, at the Lahore Ahmadiyya centre at Ahmadiyya Buildings, Lahore, after giving the Friday khutba and prayers, Maulana Muhammad Ali led the janaza prayer for Maulana Ghulam Hasan Khan (in absence of body).
