This was the school that MGA started in 1897. They tried to turn it into a College in 1904, but the British government shut it down officially in 1907. It operated as a young men’s school (Jamia and Madrassa) and housing area from 1907 to 1944. Remember, in 1909, the British government built the biggest building in the history of Qadian as they donated 25,000 rupees to the Ahmadiyya Movement at Qadian. This allowed the Ahmadiyya movement to purchase 50 acres of land as Noorudin ordered the building of the College, with hostel space, the first Jamia and the famous Nur Hospital and the famous Nur Mosque. From 1913 to 1922, the annual Jalsa Salana’s were held at the Noor mosque (See ROR of Jan-1947). The ROR of Jan-1947 alleges that in 1922, the number of guests rose to 7000-8000 and thus, a new location was needed to hold the Jalsa. Thus, from 1922 onwards, a Pandal was prepared annaually in front of the T.I. Highschool (in the spacious open field outside of the city limits of Qadian). The ROR alleges that in 1945, 1944 and 1943, 34,000 people attended the Jalsa at Qadian, this would be during WW-2.
If it wasn’t for the British government this huge facility would have never been built. The ROR of June-1915 alleges that the buildings and site costed 75,000, oh which Ahmadi’s have given 40,000 rupees and the British Government the remaining 35,000. It reports that there are 400 students of which half are living in the attached hostel. Ahmadiyya sources claim that this school is an english school and attached to the accreditation of the Punjab University. The British Government is paying 400 rupees per month for the maintenance of these facilities. In fact, the attached hostel costed an additional 60,000 rupees, of which the British Government paid half, it is alleged that the Ahmadiyya Movement paid the other 30,000 rupees (which is a lie, the British most likely paid for everything). Carpentry and tailoring is also taught at this school.
The ROR of February-1916 reports that the Ahmadiyya missionary training Madrassa was opened in late 1914. It also reports that 400 children are currently enrolled at the Ahmadiyya High school. It claims that the Ahmadiyya Madrassa is an arabic and theology school combined. It also claims to be managed by the Sadr Anjuman at Qadian.
In roughly 1944, the British government opened up the Indian Air Training Course (IAT) in Qadian at the T.I. College in the 1940’s, this was the first ever pilot training center outside of the UK. The ROR of Nov-1946 alleges that the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s have about 30 schools in British-India. They allege that the Talim-ul-Islam Highschool at Qadian has 1700 students and has been raised to a degree college. They also allege that the Madrassa-i-Ahmadiyya, Jamia Ahmadiyya and Jamia Nusrat have been raised up to a degree college. All of the institutions at Qadian are listed.
It opened at Rabwah after partition and was referred to as T.I. College. In Qadian, the old building that used to house the T.I. College is now the The Sikh National College at Qadian, since 1947-1950 era.
MGA issued an announcement on September 15, 1897, announcing plans for the establishment of such a school in Qadian (see Mujadid e Azim, page 728, online abridged version).
In the ROR of Oct-1942, Mirza Aziz Ahmad alleges that he went to the school in Qadian which had Sheikh Yakoob Ali Irfanee and Hakeem Muftee Fazlur Rahman as instructors (is this the Talim ul Islam High School?).
Some hard data from Dard, page 812-813
“””The middle school (Ta‘limul Islam) at Qadian was raised to the high standard in February 1900, and a boarding house was opened in May 1900. The number of students on the rolls by the end of 1900 was 124.
The president of the executive committee of the school was Maulawi Nur-ud-Din and the General Secretary was M. Muhammad Ali. The Head Master was M. Sher Ali and the second master was Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra.
The classes had not all got rooms and the boys sat in the open space near one another.
The school remained closed for three days on the death of Queen Victoria as a sign of mourning and Ahmadas sent two telegrams (January 24th, 1901) of condolence to the Lieut. Governor of the Punjab and the Viceroy. But on February 23rd, 1901, it was closed for a day on the completion of the I‘jazul Masih as a sign of thanksgiving and rejoicing.
It sent up three students to the Middle Examination in 1900 and all passed, while the Arya
school patronised by Buddha Mal sent up 10 and only one was successful. In 1901 there were nine candidates and of them seven passed. A special sermon was preached in the school for the benefit of students every Monday.””””
Most of the teachers were corrupt and passed MGA’s sons even when they failed. This was the year that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad should have graduated and then went to take the national matriculation test, which he failed.
A college was also started. “In April 1904 Ahmadiyya School in Qadian was shut down due to Plague and in the Daily Official Notification(see Ahle Hadith Newspaper dated 27th May 1904) the death toll just for the months of March and April 1904 was recorded at 1313 which took place in Qadian. Those days the population of Qadian was 2800 persons. People panicked and left the village and the whole town looked deserted.” (Hurf-e-Mehremana by Ghulam Jeelani Barq pp.251-252)(http://alhafeez.org/rashid/fatwa27.html, retrieved on 6-23-19).
There were accusations of rampant homosexuality at this school also, which seems to be the reason it was shut down in 1907. There was also a College launched (launched in 1903) with the same name that was shut down by the British Government in 1905, via the University Act of 1907.
Remember, in 1909, the British government built the biggest building in the history of Qadian as they donated 25,000 rupees to the Ahmadiyya Movement at Qadian. This allowed the Ahmadiyya movement to purchase 50 acres of land as Noorudin ordered the building of the College, with hostel space, the first Jamia and the famous Nur Hospital and the famous Nur Mosque. If it wasn’t for the British government this huge facility would have never been built.
MGA’s number 1 enemy, Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi sons are forcibly brought to Qadian and housed and given Ahmadiyya brainwashing treatment, after a month or so, they are rescued. He had other sons also…these were just two.
He was from Halalpur, India. He seems to be the only Ahmadi from Halalpur, India, which is close to Delhi. Per Qadiani-Ahmadi sources, The first Principal of Jami’a Ahmadiyya was Maulana Syed Sarwar Shah Sahib. Teaching staff consisted of towering personalities like Hafiz Roshan Ali, Maulvi Ismail Sahib Halalpuri and Mir Mohammad Ishaq (MGA’s brother-in-law)(See Devotion of Life, page 160).
The ROR Of April-1915 tells us how the first ever classes of the Ahmadiyya Madrassa (missionary training program) were started in January of 1915. There are about 12 students by April of 1915, their names are unknown.
Via the ROR of June-1915, we have a poem by an unknown person named Matthew Arnold, followed by an article by Abul Hasham Khan Chaudhry from Barisal, Bengal entitled, “Qadian and the Ahmadi’s”. He writes that MGA was born in 1839 (however, Qadiani’s made a note that it was unknown when MGA was born). He claims that MGA had 400,000 Ahmadi’s in his fold at the time of his death (which he have proven is a lie). He alleged that MGA’s beliefs were accepted in Afghanistan, which is a lie. He also mentioned how MGA’s doctrines have been accepted in Malaysia and Saudi Arabia (2 additional lies).
The Talim ul Islam High School, Ahmadiyya Madrassa, hostel and other buildings were built only with the financial support of the British Governement, the ROR of June-1915 alleges that the buildings and site costed 75,000, oh which Ahmadi’s have given 40,000 rupees and the British Government the remaining 35,000. It reports that there are 400 students of which half are living in the attached hostel. Ahmadiyya sources claim that this school is an english school and attached to the accreditation of the Punjab University. The British Government is paying 400 rupees per month for the maintenance of these facilities. In fact, the attached hostel costed an additional 60,000 rupees, of which the British Government paid half, it is alleged that the Ahmadiyya Movement paid the other 30,000 rupees (which is a lie, the British most likely paid for everything). Carpentry and tailoring is also taught at this school.
Abul Hasham Khan Chaudhry then explains how he went to the Masjid Aqsa to listen to the 2nd Khalifa’s class on the Quran and it was poorly attended. He then talks about the prophethood of MGA.
Jalal ud Din Shams was a student. He reports that Sheikh Abdur Rehman Misri was the Principal at the boys high school in Qadian.
The ROR of May-1918 reports that in 1914, when the first Khalifa died, there were 373 students. It then reports that in 1918, there are 442 student.
We don’t see that any Ahmadi graduated from this high-school aka madrassa. Many Ahmadi Mullahs are given the title of Maulvi and sent out to preach Ahmadiyya without a formal education as imams. A few are Jalal ud Din Shams (was sent to Syria, Damascus and Palestine), and Maulvi Zahoor Hussain (was sent to Russia). The Khalifa also sent Maulvi Muhammad Amin to Iran and Central Asia in 1921 (see Ahmadiyya British-Jewish connections, page 87). Also see, Fateh Muhammad Sayal, “Jamaat Ahmadiyya Ki Islami Hidmat”, 1927, Lahore, Page 30. By 1923, Maulvi Muhammad Amin has been arrested a few times for spying on behalf of the British Govt., (see page 87). Also See Al-Fazl, Qadian, 14 Aug 1923 and Al-Fazl, Qadian, 28 Sep, 1923.
The ROR of March-1921 has a story about Qadian by P.B. The Talim ul Islam High School is mentioned as being 3/4 of a mile from the main city center of Qadian. 700 students are also reported.
From 1913 to 1922, the annual Jalsa Salana’s were held at the Noor mosque (See ROR of Jan-1947). The ROR of Jan-1947 alleges that in 1922, the number of guests rose to 7000-8000 and thus, a new location was needed to hold the Jalsa. Thus, from 1922 onwards, a Pandal was prepared annaually in front of the T.I. Highschool (in the spacious open field outside of the city limits of Qadian). The ROR alleges that in 1945, 1944 and 1943, 34,000 people attended the Jalsa at Qadian, this would be during WW-2.
On May 20th, 1928 Jamia was re-created by the Khalifa. It seems that this was only a kids school and housing area for 20+ years. This was the official madrassa wherein Ahmadi’s Mullahs would be trained.
The Khalifa’s brother-in-law, Mir Muhammad Ishaq becomes the headmaster. He does not have a college degree nor does he seem to have a matriculation certificate.
The Khalifa cusses at his young students and calls them pigs and etc.
In November 1938, Mirza Nasir Ahmad returned to the town of his birth, Qadian, where he was appointed a professor at Jamia Ahmadiyya, the missionary theological training college of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. In 1939, he was appointed principal where he remained for five years.
The ROR of Aug-1941 mentions the Talim ul Islam High School at Qadian and a dream of MGA’s from like 1901.
The ROR of July-1942 mentions the Talim ul Islam High School at Qadian and how they built a bridge and thus assisted in the funeral arrangements of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad.
The Talim ul Islam College (aka T.I. College) was mentioned in the ROR of May-1944, the essay is by a man named M.I.S.B.R., his full name is unknown. The ROR alleges that there are 1300 students currently at the schools at Qadian and most of these men transfer to the Ahmadiyya Hostel in Lahore for further education. However, since the new Talim ul Islam College (aka T.I. College) has opened in Qadian, this practice will go away, the ROR also tells the world how many Ahmadiyya youth had been westernized and moved away from religion altogether at this hostel in Lahore. Mirza Bashir Ahmad is quoted as having said that the opening of this college coincides with the 2nd Khalifa’s claim of being the Musleh Maud.
The Talim ul Islam College (aka T.I. College) was opened in 1944, during WW-2. From May 1944 to November 1965, Mirza Nasir Ahmad was the principal of the Talim-ul-Islam College, first in Qadian, then after partition, in Rabwah, Pakistan. The British government opened up the Indian Air Training Course (IAT) in Qadian at the T.I. College in the 1940’s, this was the first ever pilot training center outside of the UK.
The ROR of Nov-1946 alleges that the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s have about 30 schools in British-India. They allege that the Talim-ul-Islam Highschool at Qadian has 1700 students and has been raised to a degree college. They also allege that the Madrassa-i-Ahmadiyya, Jamia Ahmadiyya and Jamia Nusrat have been raised up to a degree college. All of the institutions at Qadian are listed.
In 1947, when the college became homeless as a result of the independence of Pakistan in 1947. After operating in an abandoned horse stable for several months, the college shifted to the abandoned building of the D.A.V. College in Lahore. This building was used as a refugee camp for some time, and became badly damaged but was repaired to suit the needs of the college. 6 November 1947: Talim-ul-Islam High School was shifted to Chiniot from Qadian. Initially, it was relocated in the Malik Bhagwandas building by the allotment officials (see online Al-Hakam archives, via twitter).
Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’s address at Talim-ul-Islam College Convocation, 1950 (alhakam.org)
Last Updated on 8th September 2023
Ata-ul-Haye Nasir, Al Hakam
On 2 April 1950, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud, Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmadra addressed the convocation ceremony of the Talim-ul-Islam College Lahore.
A day prior, The Civil and Military Gazette wrote under the heading “Tomorrow”:
“Convocation and Prize Distribution of Talim-ul-Islam College, Lahore, 11-30 am, College Hall. Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, Head of the Ahmadiyya Community, will deliver the address.” (The Civil and Military Gazette, 1 April 1950, p. 2)
The same announcement was published in the 2 April issue as well.
The event was attended by various dignitaries, including the Mayor of Lahore Corporation, Mushtaq Ahmad, Deputy Commissioner Rehabilitation, Syed Jamil Hassan, Deputy Commissioner Lahore, SS Jafri, Zafarul Ahsan Lari Chairman of the Lahore Improvement Trust, Deputy Director Talimat-e-Aama Punjab, specialists in the education department, and editors of various periodicals.
The Civil and Military Gazette published a report about this address, and wrote:
“Have New Outlook And Character – Mirza Bashir-ud-din
“TI College Convocation
“(‘C. & M. G.’ Report)
“Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmed, head of the Ahmadiyya community, advised graduates of the Talim-ul-Islam College, Lahore, on Sunday to step forward with courage and confidence to serve their religion, country and millat ‘as valiant sons of Islam chosen by the One True God.’
“Emphasising that the eternal law of God was ‘seek an unending struggle and not rest,’ the head of the Ahmadiyya community referred in his convocation address to the obligations which new graduates owed to their alma mater, their family, their country and their religion. He stressed the need of acquiring new outlook and new character, to be determined by the change in environment and in the light of new responsibilities, that fall on them due to the creation of a new State.
“‘You have to establish the name and reputation of a new country,’ which was more difficult than guarding ‘the name and reputation of a famed one,’ he added.
“Continuing, he said: ‘Young persons of old countries are like children, who step into a rich inheritance. But you are like parents, who have their children to think of. Generations to come will have to build, to some extent at least, on foundations laid down by you. If your foundations are wrong, the superstructure raised upon them will also be wrong.’
“After the convocation address, Mirza Nasir Ahmed, Principal of the College, reviewed the progress of the ‘refugee’ institution, which had to start from scratch after evacuation from Qadian and the head of the Ahmadiyya community gave away prizes to students, who had been conspicuous in academic, social and sports activities.
“Guests were, thereafter, entertained to lunch.” (The Civil and Military Gazette, 3 April 1950, p. 3)
In its issue of 5 April 1950, the same newspaper published a group photo (seen in the beginning) of the TI College students with Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra.
At the beginning of his address, Huzoorra said, “Human life goes through various changes, and these very changes become a source of making one’s life interesting. If these changes are removed from one’s life, it does not remain interesting anymore. […] Hence, in fact, life is the name of change. No progress is possible without revolutions. In fact, progress can be defined as leaping forward gradually, meaning by passing through various pious changes.” (Al Fazl, 3 April 1950, p. 2)
“God Almighty is an eternal truth. He is also called Immutable with respect to His being, however, in terms of attributes, He possesses infinite states as well. Allah the Almighty states in the Holy Quran:
كُلَّ يَوۡمٍ هُوَ فِيۡ شَاۡنٍ فَبِاَيِّ اٰلَآءِ رَبِّكُمَا تُكَذِّبٰنِ
[“Every day He (reveals Himself) in a different state. Which, then, of the favours of your Lord will you twain deny?” (Surah ar-Rahman, Ch. 55: V. 30-31)]
Commenting on this, Huzoorra said:
“The attributes of God Almighty continue to manifest themselves upon mankind in different aspects. Hence, obviously, mankind would also need to be harmonious with the [Divine] attributes that are being manifested at the time. […] In short, the point that has been stated in the above-mentioned verses is that God Almighty manifests His attributes in a different state from time to time, and along with this change, mankind is also required to change themselves in accordance with the attributes of Allah the Almighty that are being manifested. In this way, mankind moves forward towards progress.
“If one ponders over world history, one finds that in different eras, mankind has advanced in a certain direction. […] Those minds that are able to mould their direction completely in accordance with the prevailing direction guided by the Divine attributes succeed in becoming the leaders of their time, possess certain capabilities, and thus make a name in history.
“The Holy Prophetsa has indicated this point through the prayers of istikharah. No doubt, one reaps the fruit of their effort, however, it is a fact that inappropriate endeavour goes in vain. […] It is possible for one to attain each and every knowledge and perform all kinds of duties, however, it is impossible for one to attain perfection in each and every field. It is only Allah the Almighty who is aware of one’s intellectual abilities, and it is He alone Who knows which of the beneficial sciences and useful works are appropriate for them, as per their own capabilities and the needs of their time, country, and nation. Therefore, [the Holy Prophetsa] stated that regardless of whatever good work one is performing, they must pray to Allah the Almighty before beginning, and for this, he has taught the following words:
اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّیْ أَسْتَخِيْرُكَ بِعِلْمِكَ، وَأَسْتَقْدِرُكَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ الْعَظِيمِ، فَإِنَّكَ تَقْدِرُ وَلَا أَقْدِرُ، وَتَعْلَمُ وَلَا أَعْلَمُ، وَأَنْتَ عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوبِ، اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أَنَّ هَذَا الأَمْرَ خَيْرٌ لِیْ فِیْ دِينِیْ وَمَعَاشِیْ وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِیْ ـ فَاقْدُرْهُ لِیْ۔ وَیَسّرہ لِیْ ثُمَّ بَارکْ لِیْ فِیْہ۔ اللّٰھُمَّ ان کُنْت تعلم ان ھٰذَا الْاَمْر شَرٌّ لِیْ فِیْ دِينِیْ وَمَعَاشِیْ وَعَاقِبَةِ أَمْرِیْ ـ فَاصْرِفْهُ عَنِّیْ وَاصْرِفْنِیْ عَنْهُ، وَاقْدُرْ لِیَ الْخَيْرَ حَيْثُ كَانَ۔ ثُمَّ رَضِّنِي بِهِ
[“O Allah, I seek good from Thee out of Thy knowledge and seek power from Thee out of Thy power, and I beg of Thee out of Thy boundless Grace, for Thou hast power and I have no power, and Thou hast knowledge and I have no knowledge, and Thy knowledge encompasses the unseen. O Allah! If it be within Thy knowledge that this task is for my good, both materially and spiritually, and in respect of my ultimate end, then make it possible for me and bless me therein, but if it be within Thy knowledge that it is harmful to me in my spiritual and material life and in respect of my ultimate end, then turn me away therefrom, and enable me to attain good wherever it may be and cause me to be blessed therewith.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab ad-Da‘waat, Hadith 6382)]
“In other words, ‘O my Lord, I seek from You the best decision in regards to the work which I intend to perform, the knowledge which I intend to attain, or the duty which I am going to take since You are aware of my hidden abilities, intentions, personal needs, and requirements of my family, nation, country, and the world as a whole. Moreover, I also beg You to grant me the ability and help to fulfil my responsibility, according to whatever your verdict is. Thirdly, Your immense grace may shower upon me in order to fulfil the responsibility in relation to the matter that is appropriate for me [in Your eyes], towards which You guide me and help in achieving that. And may I achieve a great outcome from my effort instead of an insignificant one. […] O God, if the task which I intend to carry out is good in Your sight, for myself, for my religious and worldly needs, and that I could obtain the best result of whatever efforts and hard work I will exert, then enable me to perform that task, grant me support to carry out this task in the best possible way, and make its outcome beneficial for me as much as possible. On the contrary, if Your knowledge suggests that this work is not suitable for me, my religion, or the world, or that a satisfactory result could not be achieved through my efforts and hard work, then You may put hurdles in this work, and instil reluctance towards this matter in my heart as well. And create the means for whatever else is beneficial for me, and bring my attention to it and inculcate the desire for that in my heart.’
“How perfect is this prayer, and how elegantly attention has been brought to the fact that every good work is not suitable for every era and individual! […] Thus, in order to obtain the best possible outcome, one is required to carry out those tasks that are beneficial for their respective nation and mankind in a certain era, and they also possess the capabilities to perform those duties in the best possible manner. […]
“As I have stated earlier, all the beauties of human life are linked with an unlimited series of changes. Moreover, with the creation of mankind, Allah the Almighty has also provided the means for a limitless series of changes. However, a certain change [in one’s life] could only be a source of progress once it is based on correct principles; on the contrary, if it is based on incorrect principles, it might cause regression. Moreover, remaining at rest, in itself, holds hidden means of regress. A nation that ceases to leap forward, continues to regress.
“Therefore, our youngsters are required to always keep in mind this point that in this world, ceasing to leap forward is synonymous with death. The one who will stay at rest, will face failure or be pushed behind, which is synonymous with death. Thus, upon finishing their education, they are required to never assume that now it is time for them to rest, but rather, they must realise that it is time to act, instead of rest.
“As I have already said, from the perspective of Islamic principle, it is imperative for one to always leap forward, and their progress is linked to the fact that not only do they need to leap forward but to do so in the direction towards which God Almighty’s attributes are guiding. The method for this is that whatever they do, it should be done after prayer [dua] and after seeking help from God Almighty.
“I wish to particularly call the attention of the students who have finished their university education and obtained degrees, that when they had begun their studies, they might not have known that the Holy Prophetsa has taught to perform istikharah for every significant work. It is possible that they might have shown negligence towards prayers [du‘a] while choosing subjects for their study. But now that their first phase has been completed, the second one is before them, which might become the prelude for many other achievements. Hence, they are required to choose for themselves a pathway by seeking prayers from God Almighty in accordance with the method taught by Islam. […]
“Islam is a living religion, which has its role in every field of life and expects one to perform acts as per its commandments. If we claim to believe in Islam, it is essential for us to accept that we should follow [the commandments of] God and His Messengersa in every sphere of our lives. Moreover, we will also need to accept that the Will of Allah the Almighty has a great role in the progress and regress of the world. […] If we believe in God, we must believe in a living God, and if we believe in a living God, then we ought to believe that the works of our daily routine have a connection with Him, and our progress or regress is dependent upon His Powers and Blessings. […]
“Therefore, I advise those youngsters who are going to pursue their respective fields after finishing their education, that the law of God Almighty requires them to never rest at ease, but rather, they should prepare for a never-ending strive and try to leap forward at all times in accordance with the Quranic teaching. You are also required to always seek prayers from Allah the Almighty that He may enable you to perform good deeds at their appropriate times and to utilise the correct methods, and then He may grant you the best and most extraordinary results of those efforts.
“Remember, you are not only dutiful to your own being, but rather, you are also dutiful towards the institution that educated you, the family that spent money on your education – whether directly or indirectly – the country that made arrangements for your education, and then your religion as well.
“The duty that you have towards your educational institute requires that you utilise your knowledge in the best manner. University education is not the ultimate purpose; rather, it is the first step towards setting the ultimate goal. The degrees that are given to you by the university, hold no value in themselves; rather, it is you who give value to those degrees through your future practice. […]
“Therefore, you need to continuously strive to […] enhance your knowledge and to never consider the college education as the reward of your life, but rather, you should deem it as the seed for the nourishment of your knowledge, and to strive to make this seed fruitful to its capacity by utilising all means. So that, as a result of this endeavour, the value of those degrees may increase that you have gained today, and may the honour of this university also increase that has granted you these degrees. Moreover, may your nation be able to feel proud of you, and may your country be able to hope for the best possible result and witness their fulfilment as well.
“You are the citizen of a new country, citizens of an apparently small country among various big countries of the world, your country is not a wealthy one, rather, a poor one. You had been living under the protection of a foreign rule in peace and ease. Thus, you are required to mould your morals and characters, and you will have to establish the honour and reputation of your country in the world. […] Though it is a very difficult task to retain the honour of countries, the even greater task is to establish their honour. And this very heavy duty has been put on your shoulders. You are a new generation of a new country, thus, your responsibilities are far greater than the responsibilities of new generations of already-existing countries. […]
“You will have to keep in mind the coming generations while fulfilling responsibilities. The coming generations would be compelled – to an extent – to build on the foundations that you would establish today. If your foundation is faulty, the building that will be erected on it will also be faulty. […] Thus, since you are the first brick of Pakistan, you are bound to keep in mind that there remains no flaw in your methods and practice. Otherwise, the foundation of Pakistan will continue to be faulty forever.
“No doubt, it is a difficult duty, however, at the same time, it holds greatness as well. If you build Pakistan on firm foundations through your sacrifices, your name will be remembered with such honour and love that its example could not be found in the coming generations. Hence, I advise you to approach your new objective with determination, perseverance, and courage and to continue to do so. […]
“Therefore, O youngsters, who have been chosen by the One God! O brave soldiers of Islam! Centre of the country’s hopes! Worthy sons of the nation! Step forward, since your God, your religion, your country, and your nation are looking at your future with both sentiments of love and hope.” (Al Fazl, 3 April 1950, pp. 2-4)
Mirza Nasir Ahmad (The principal of this school) is arrested in Lahore as part of the Anti-Ahmadiyya riots.
In 1955, the college moved to its current campus at Rabwah. From 1948 to 1955, the College was located in Lahore, in fact, an Ahmadi was tragically murdered in 1953 during the the famous 1953 riots. On Dec. 6th, 1954, the College was opened in Rabwah.
In 1965, Mirza Nasir Ahmad became Khalifa and appointed Qazi M. Aslam as the new principal. Qazi M. Aslam remained as principal until 1973, when Pakistan nationalized all Colleges and Universities. Hence, the college closed forever. The buildings were then used by Ahmadiyya leaders as jamia or other administrative offices.
The government of Pakistan nationalized all colleges and Universities in the country and thus, even the Ahmadiyya college was brought under the control of the Pakistani Government.
