MGA made many strange predictions about the future. Another weird one is his prediction about the British Government. He had a revelation in Persian which indicated that the British government would end its rule in India in 8 years. Later on, this revelation was deleted by the Ahmadiyya editing team. In Seeratul Mahdi, Volume 1 page 68, Mirza Bashir Ahmad mentioned three names Haji Abdul Majeed, Haifz Hamid Ali and Mian Abdullah Sanwari as witnessed that MGA received a revelation in which it was mentioned that rule British Government will end in 8 years. One out of these three witness (Mian Abdullah Sanauri) says that he remembers this revelation like it was etched in stone. As time passed British Rule became stronger and stronger day by day. Mirza realized that he has fired a wrong bullet so in Roohani Khazain Volume 14 page 216 (Kashful Ghita) he denied this ILHAM altogether (see the scan in the below), it can also be found on pages 38-39 of the 1898 english edition of Kashf-ul-Ghita). MGA denied this prophecy mainly because one of his friends informed of this prophesy to Molana Muhammad Hussain Batalvi and he published it in his magazine Ishaat us sunnah. Mirza got scared that his masters, the Britishers would not like this so he denied it. We don’t have the original scan from that newspaper as of yet. Nevertheless, Ahmadi’s archived this revelation of MGA after the Khalifa authenticated it in 1929.
