MGA mentioned the prophet Yahya (as) a few times in his writings. We have cataloged those instances in the below, its should be noted that MGA called Yahya (As) as a shaheed in 1891 and in 1907 (Via Badr)(see the refs in below).
It should also be noted that per Ahmadiyya theology, true prophets of Allah were never killed, however, this is incorrect, per 2:61, 2:87, 2:91, 3;21, 3:112, 3:144, 3:181, 3:183, 4:155, 5:70 (that’s 10 verses).
However, in 2000, Mirza Tahir Ahmad (MTA) denied that Yahya (as) was killed and even asserted that he escaped and lived in Greece and died, however, MTA didn’t give any references. I have also posted a shorter clip on tik tok.
Izala Auham, RK volume 3 page 314, he calls yahya (AS) to be Shaheed
(Roohani Khazain, Dafi-ul-Bala- Volume 18 – Page 220)http://www.alislam.org/…/books/Defence-Against-Plague.pdf, Defence Against the Plague and a Criterion for the Elect of God (dafi ul bala translation) (p3).
“If you become shameless you can say anything but the fact of the matter is that Maseeh (Jesus) was not more pious than the righteous people of that period. Rather the Prophet Yahya (John) is superior to Maseeh because he did not drink alcohol and it was never heard that an unchaste woman came and anointed him with perfume of her unchaste earning or touched his body with her hands and hair. Or some non-mahram young women came to his service. That is the reason God called Yahya in Quran as Husoor (chaste) but He did not use such a name for Maseeh as such stories were prohibitive to name him so. Further, Hazrat Isa (AS) repented for his sins at the hands of Yahya who is called John by Christians and was made Elijah later on.”
In tohfa golveria RK volume 17 page 103, he says death by killing of a prophet is no proof that the prophet is not a true prophet and then on same page later he says if Esa did not die on cross then yahya AS also did not get killed but was lifted up to heaven alive.

Mawahibur-Rahman : “(مواهب الرحمن، ص 60-61)” denying that jesus-as had any child:
”The fact that Jesus had no father and NO child is a proof of what has been conclusively stated … and the birth of Yahya without any touch from the human powers, so was the birth of Jesus without the father and their death without leaving the heirs is a sign of this incident”.
Badr, 7th November 1907
“Just as before Jesus, the prophet John the Baptist was martyred while preaching the oneness of God, similarly before me in this very land of Punjab Sayyid Ahmad was martyred while preaching the message of the oneness of God. This was another similarity, which God fulfilled.”
Mirza Tahir Ahmad denies that Yahya (as) was murdered. In fact, he claims that Yahya (as) lived in Greece
