We have yet another rare book by Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad, its called “Hindu Muslim Problem and its Solution” by Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad (1927). On 20 March 1927, Muslim leaders had a meeting in Delhi – presided by Jinnah – to discuss the basic demands of Muslims, including the separate electorates. They agreed to compromise the demand for separate electorates in an effort to break the ice and decided to offer Hindus the withdrawal of this demand, provided all other demands were accepted. (Quaid-e-Azam Aur Unka Ehad – Hayat-e-Muhammad Ali Jinnah, by Raees Ahmad Jafri, p. 162)

He wrote another book a year later entitled :“The Nehru report and Muslim Rights” by Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad (1930).  

On 7 September 1927, during the second session of the Ittehad Conference in Simla, he suggested:

“Although the idea of joint electorates is correct principally, but not during the current circumstances of India and in our view, it is dangerous for the Muslim interest. Anyway, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, Muslims of Punjab and Muslims of some other provinces are not ready to accept the joint electorates for now. So, it is our demand that the right for separate electorates should continue for the Muslims and other parties also, if they like it, should get this right.” (Zamima Al Fazl, 16 September 1927)

In Simla, Huzoor had a conversation with Jinnah on this issue. Jinnah stated that nationalism (qaumiyyat) could only be inculcated through joint electorates. Huzoorra responded that although he agreed that joint electorates were necessary for nationalism, but considering the circumstances at the time, when the Muslims were weaker and unable to cope with the power and deceits of Hindus, separate electorates were the need of the time. But Jinnah did not agree.  (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 4, pp. 619-620)

Then, during a meeting of the Muslim leaders, chaired by Jinnah, Huzoorra delivered a speech in favour of separate electorates and most of the speakers agreed with Huzoor’sra views and spoke in favour of separate electorates. Jinnah, after delivering his concluding speech, stated that now he knew that the majority of the nation favoured separate electorates and when the decisive time would come, he would cater for their views.
