We have located only one Ahmadiyya place of worship in Kashmir, India. It is barely 20-30 miles from the tomb of Yuz Asaf. This mosque was acquired by the Ahmadiyya jamaat in roughly 1939, by 20 October 1940: The foundation stone of the Ahmadiyya mosque in Srinagar, Kashmir was laid by Hazrat Maulana Abul Ata on this date. The mosque was built within a year (See Al-Hakam archives). How many Ahmadi’s are there in Kashmir, India? By 2019, there seem to 4 additional villages in the south area of Kashmir that have a significant Ahmadi population (roughly 10,000 per Ahmadiyya sources), Reashinagar village, also spelled Reshnagri, see the google map page herein, Abdur Rahman Itu is the President of this Ahmadiyya village, which is reported as the largest Ahmadiyya village in Kashmir. Another village is Shurat village in Kulgam. Kulgam is a huge city center, Ahmadi’s seem to be located only in the village of Shurat, however, they may have spread around.There lots of young Ahmadi’s who are serving in the police and are teachers for the government of India, much to the consternation of the local Muslim community. There are 5 Ahmadiyya run schools in South Kashmir, mostly in these small villages. Basharat Ahmed Dar, village head of Asnoor is the official Ahmadiyya representative for his village, he seems to be a descendant of Khwaja Abdul Ghaffar Dar. The last two Ahmadi-only villages are Kani pora and Yari pora, both of these villages fall into to the Kulgam district, not much is known of these small and obscure villages. There is also an Ahmadiyya place of worship just north of Rajouri, its called Mosque Dehri Ralyote. This seems to be a new mosque, built in the past 40 years, we are unsure who had it built. There is also an ahmadi place of worship called Masjid Fazl in Poonch, Kashmir, India. We are unsure how many Ahmadi’s are there in the old town area of Poonch. Next door in Azad Kashmir, there are barely 300-400 Ahmadi’s in the entire country and a few Ahmadiyya mosques. In 2011, Nicholas H. A. Evans was told that there were 80,000 to 200,000 Ahmadi’s in India, which is an exaggeration.
