He was an Indian Ahmadi Muslim astronomer. Alladin received in 1963 a PhD at the University of Chicago. He was among the famous 100 Astronomers of the world and served as the educational advisor to former President APJ Abdul Kalam of India. He wrote many books, penned hundreds of articles and published more than 50 research papers. He then went as a professor at the Osmania University in Hyderabad, where he was Director of the Center of Advanced Study in Astronomy.  In 1998, he finally wrote about Ahmadiyya and picked the topic of the eclipses.  His grandfather Seth Abdullah Alladin was the first in his family to join the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and devoted a large part of his wealth to that cause (see page 53), he seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya in the 1920’s. He was the president of Sadar Anjuman Ahmadiyya, the highest body of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamat in India under the Khalifatul Masih V Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad for 4 years.[5] He was referred as Ulul Albab by Mirza Masroor Ahmad which means one of those gifted with understanding.[6]

Khan Bahadur Seth Ahmad Aladin of Hayderabad Deccan writes:

“Respected Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad Sahib has been specially kind and benevolent towards me. His practical life, broadmindedness and unwavering faith in Allah has always impressed me.” (Al-Hakam, Jubilee No., 1931).

In 1990, he wrote an essay about the life of MGA in the ROR.


He seems to have written another article in the ROR of 1998, wherein he argued that the double eclipses in ramadhan in 1894 for MGA was miraculous, since it was visible in Qadian, India.
