Sufi Ghulam Muhammad is sent as a missionary to Mauritius, however, he stops in Sri Lanka and works on creating an Ahmadiyya center there. Per the english-ROR of February, a new Ahmadiyya missionary, Maulvi Hafiz Ghulam Muhammad, B.A. was also sent to Ceylon, aka Sri Lanka. February 1915, page 80. He left Qadian on February 20th, 1915, he was educated at the famous Aligarh Muslim College, many Ahmadi mullahs were educated there. This was before the Jamia was created at Qadian. He was also set to travel to Mauritius. The English-ROR of September tells us that Maulvi Hafiz Ghulam Muhammad, B.A. has been in Mauritius about 2 months, which means he arrived in July of 1915.
The ROR of July-1916 has a report from the Ahmadiyya secretary in Mauritius. He reports that the new governor (Henry Hesketh Bell) has arrived in British-Mauritius and the Ahmadiyya Movement immediately sent a delegation of 5 Ahmadi’s to meet him and his team. This letter was published in the ROR and other local newspaper in Mauritius. In this letter, the Ahmadi’s of Mauritius tell the new governor how MGA forced Ahmadi’s to be grateful to the King/Queen of England. And thus, Ahmadi’s are living this in reality, the letter goes on to declare King George the 5th as the temporal Khalifa of the Ahmadi’s and Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad as their religious Khalifa. A man named Mr. Noorooyah reported about some alleged converts from Christianity. The Ahmadiyya community was sad at the death of Herbert Kitchener, 1st Earl Kitchener. Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad (B.A.) gives condolences and prays for the success of the British government, the 2nd Khalifa said the same.
The ROR of Sep-1916 reports that their “missionary” is working hard, he visited Port Louis and looked at houses for a possible “Ahmadiyya Lecture Hall”.

The ROR of Nov-1916 has an essay by Hafiz Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad (B.A.) entitled, “Allah, the living, the Omniscient, the Omnipotent”. He quoted the bible, and mentioned how Jesus is allegedly buried in Khan Yar, Srinagar, Kashmir. It is also mentioned how the mission in Mauritius is moving along satisfactorily.
The ROR of Dec-1916 reports that Mr. Fateh Muhammad and Mr. A Rahman have been in Sri Lanka and the few Ahmadi’s of Mauritius have offered to pay their fare for them to come to Mauritius. We are unsure who these people are. They also report that there is a French ahmadiyya magazine with circulation entitled, “Revue de Islamic”.
The ROR of Jan-1917 alleges that a man named Mr. Saddar Ali has given the Rose- Hill-Ahmadiyya-i-Anjuman a piece of half an acre of land. They also claim that the imam of the Rose Hill mosque has died.
The ROR of June-1917 reports that Hafiz Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad (B.A.)(and family) are waiting for Maulvi Obeidullah to arrive and will then leave for Mauritius. There are 4 young students of Mauritius origin already at Qadian and studying.
The ROR of Aug-1917 reports that Hafiz Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad (B.A.)(and family) and Maulvi Obeidullah (graduate of the Ahmadiyya Theology College at Qadian) are stuck at some Indian sea port, enroute to Mauritius. They also report that there is a French ahmadiyya magazine with circulation entitled, “Revue de Islamic”. They also plan to publish 1000 fliers which will argue that MGA predicted the fall of the Tsar of Russia.
The ROR of Oct-Nov-1917 reports that on November 10th, 1917, Maulvi Ubaidullah and Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad left India for Mauritius to help the Ahmadi’s there. They also report that Muslims are opposing Ahmadi’s heavily.
The Jan-1918 edition of the ROR reports that the Ahmadiyya missionary, Maulvi Ubaidullah has arrived and will be working in St. Pierre, whereas, the other Ahmadi missionary Maulvi Hafiz Ghulam Muhammad, B.A is working out of Port Louis. The finances of the Mauritius jamaat are also posted.
The Feb-1918 edition of the ROR reports Maulvi Ubaidullah is working out of St. Pierre and Maulvi Hafiz Ghulam Muhammad, B.A is working out of Rose Hill.
The Aug-Sep-1918 edition of the ROR reports that Muslims are opposing Ahmadi’s in Mauritius.
The ROR of Nov-Dec-1918 reports that Rosehill Mosque case is still in the courts (Port Louis High Court), they also complain of persecution. The 2nd Khalifa seems to have immediately fabricated a dream that he had before Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad left for Mauritius wherein it is asserted that there will be persecution. It is also reports that 2 of their young students who were at Qadian studying have died of Influenza (the spanish flu). They also report that there is a French ahmadiyya magazine with circulation entitled, “Revue de Islamic”.

Ahmadi’s had a case in the Supreme court wherein they were trying to steal it away from the local sunni muslim community. This article was written by Hafiz Ghulam Muhammad. It is also explains how there are some students from Mauritius studying in Qadian.
Mauritius – Nov. 1920, Supreme Court case No. 32452’. This ground-breaking event occurred half a century BEFORE Pakistan (it is understood that Pakistan came into being in 1947) declared qadianis and their offshoots as non-Muslims, on the 7th September 1974. It is interesting to to note that it took Pakistan 27 years since its inception, to come to the this conclusion! This Supreme Court loss for the Qadianis, to all extents and purposes, effectively recognised that qadianis are NOT Muslims. Nb. Since 1915, during the First World War, qadiani agitators had taken over the main masjid in Rose Hill; with the support of prominent apostates to Qadianism. Due to strict wartime regulations, Muslims were unable to take back this Masjid, until the end of WW1.
Ahmadiyyat in Mauritius
Maulana Sufi Ghulam Muhammad Sahib BA, Muslim missionary, Rose Hill, writes:
“On 25 September , I went to Phoenix with Maulvi Obaidullah Sahib and gave lectures. First Maulvi Obaidullah Sahib delivered a speech on How to recognise true religion. Then, I made a speech and proved that the Promised Messiahas drew the attention of the people [towards God’s message] and some of them considered him a liar but did not confront him out of fear and thought that he would die after some time and everything would remain in their hands. However, some people mulled over and accepted him after recognising the arguments of his truth. [I explained that] after Ahmadas, many people had learned the arguments of truth and started to carry out tabligh to others. They have not only reached [and conveyed his message] in India but also in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, England, America and Australia. By the grace of God, [my speech] had a positive influence on the audience. A non-Ahmadi promised that he would offer Jumuah prayers with Ahmadis in Rose Hill [mosque]. Subsequently, he fulfilled his promise and hopefully, he will announce his conversion to Ahmadiyyat in a few days, insha-Allah!
“By the grace of God, the proceedings of the mosque’s case have come to an end and the only thing remaining is the issuing of the verdict. Consequently, we have planned to hold public lectures at the cinema hall on the first weekend of every month. All praise be to Allah that we have started as planned. On the afternoon of 3 October 1920, the lecture began and there was a large audience as well. The subject of the speech was that Islam is the only religion which is alive. Its living proof is the Promised Messiahas and his true successors. The religion of Hindus is not alive because God does not communicate with the followers of the Vedas. Moreover, the religion of the believers of Gospels is no longer alive because no other Christian receives any revelation after the disciples of Jesusas, nor does the Holy Spirit descend upon them. I told the audience that the Islam of non-Ahmadis was also dead and the only living proof of the truth of Islam is the Promised Messiahas. By the grace of God, [my words] had a profound effect [on the participants].
“Hindu dignitaries were also present in the gathering and they included a barrister-at-law and an attorney-at-law. Maulvi Obaidullah Sahib writes that a lot of people gathered on the death of an Ahmadi brother’s son and tabligh was done among them. A sermon was also delivered on the women’s side.
“A conversation took place with a Christian at Phoenix Station. As he could not understand Urdu, it was the first time that a religious issue was discussed in Mauritian language in a public gathering.
“Obaidullah Sahib writes:
‘On Sunday, 11 September , I went to convey the message of Islam in Montagne Blanche and carried out tabligh over there. A meeting was held at Rose Hill to discuss various matters, including the registration of the Ahmadiyya Society, which went very well …’”
The ROR of August-1921 reports that there are 500 Ahmadi’s in the country (a lie).
The ROR of Oct-Nov tell us about the work of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Mauritius. Also in the ROR of March-April-May 1922. M.H. Ghulam Mohammad is mentioned as well as Maulvi Obaidullah.
Maulvi Obaidullah dies and become the first ever Ahmadi missionary to die tragically. The details of his death are unknown. The ROR of Jan-Feb-March-1923 tells us that Hafiz Sufi Ghulam Hussain is working in the country with Maulvi Obaidullah.
In the May-1926 edition of the ROR, a photo of is given of Hafiz Ghulam Hussain.
The 3rd Ahmadiyya mullah is sent to Mauritius from Qadian, his name is Jamal Ahmad. They claim that he is a Hafiz, however, this a lie. Who verified his Hifz? See the January-1930 edition of ROR.
On the 27th July 1928: Hafiz Jamal Ahmad was sent to Mauritius as a missionary. He spent the next 21 years serving there, propagating the message of Islam on this island. He passed away on 27 December 1949 and was buried there. On his demise, the 2nd Khalifa said about Mauritius, “Blessed is that land where one as supremely resolute and pious as him is buried”.
