Professor Clement Lindley Wragge was a renowned astronomer of his time. He lived in England, but in 1908 was visiting India as part of his world tour during which he gave lectures on astronomy to very large audiences. In May 1908, he stayed in Lahore for a short period. There he gave a lecture which was well attended, especially by many highly placed English people. Mufti Mohammad Sadiq was also present and he met the professor after the lecture. He briefly explained to Professor Raig the proofs and arguments put forward by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in support of his claim to be the Promised Messiah of his time. Upon hearing these the Professor wished to meet Mirza Ghulam Ahmad straight away. Mufti Sahib sought first to arrange a time with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who gave his permission; the meeting took place after Zuhr prayers on 12th May 1908. Mufti Mohammad Sadiq acted as the interpreter and the conversation was originally recorded in Urdu. The dialogues between the two are recorded in the Malfūzāt, the discourses of Ghulam Ahmad. Some of his followers believe that Wragge had converted to Islam and stayed a Muslim until his death. Proof of his conversion is cited by Ahmadiyya Muslim scholars in the form of letters written to Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, a companion of Ghulam Ahmad, by Prof. Wragge after his meeting with Ghulam Ahmad at Lahore. However, more personal family records suggest that Wragge remained a theosophist up until his death in 1922.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________Why did Ahmadi’s lie and write that he converted to Ahmadiyya?
In typical Ahmadiyya pattern, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq claimed that Professor Clement Lindley Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya, Zafrullah Khan said the same. The family of the Professor ended up telling the world that he was a theosophist. Nevertheless, Ahmadiyya unofficial website people still claim that Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya in 1917. Per Zikr-e-Habib, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq claims that Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya while Sadiq was in England (1917). However, this is a total lie.
