We have found a book, which seems to have simply been an essay that was published in the Muslim Herald in the issue of May–1976. This is a rare glimpse at Mirza Tahir Ahmad before he became Khalifa. This essay was in Urdu and by Mirza Tahir Ahmad was in response to a book entitled, “From Rabwah to Tel Aviv” which was published, circulated and sold at the “World Festival of Islam” which was held in the UK in 1976, it seems to have put together per the order of Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri. The Muslims who wrote the original book seem to have been working on connecting the Zionist movement with the Ahmadiyya Movement, specifically in terms of their work with the British and U.S. Goverments, it is likely that even Wahhabism are agents of the USA and the Britsh. We have attached what seems to have been an english translation of Mirza Tahir Ahmad’s response. Bashir Ahmad Rafiq (the long time imam at the Ahmadiyya mosque in London) wrote the foreward/preface. Furthermore, the politics of Ahmadiyya and western power and the Mirza families quest for their own country is discussed.
What did Mirza Tahir Ahmad object to?
Firstly, he seems to take exception to Muslims calling Ahmadi’s as Qadiani’s. Ever since Ahmadi’s moved out of Qadian, they have taken exception to being called Qadiani’s, since most Ahmadi’s don’t live there anymore.

From Rabwah to Tel Aviv (1976) Mirza Tahir Ahmad
The book review
Mirza Tahir Ahmad starts off with quoting many verse of the Quran out of context. He asserts that all people who have opposed prophets have died miserably and etc. He responds to the parallels that Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri makes between Judaism and Ahmadiyyat. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri seems to have argued, that like the Jews, Ahmadi’s have explained prophethood so that anyone could reach it, specifically any astrologer. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri seems to be correct, since Nostradamus made many predictions, and per MGA’s definition of a prophet, even Nostradamus fits. Mirza Tahir Ahmad goes on to quote many verses of the Quran, he even quotes 69:44, which we have thoroughly refuted in the past. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri seems to make a parallel with the Jewish belief’s about Jesus and the Ahmadiyya belief’s, he calls it “continuation of the soul of Jesus”. This most likely means that Jews believe that Jesus died and so do the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s. Mirza Tahir Ahmad is confused, he pivots and argues that Sunni/Shia-Muslims in-fact believe just like the Jews that a Messiah will physically ascend from the sky and thus they are the ones that are similar, Ahmadi’s believe that Jesus died in India and will never physically return, thus, contradicting the beliefs of Jews. Christians and Muslims. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri also seems to argue that MGA claimed to be a descendant of Jews and etc. Mirza Tahir Ahmad tells us that Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri wrote that just like the Jews, Ahmadi’s denied all the miracles of Jesus (as), which is actually a valid assertion.
The reference work Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri’s book
Mirza Tahir Ahmad tells us that Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri quoted Anjam-e-Athim, the Al-Fazl of 1-3-1952. Again, in this quotation, Ahmadi’s accuse all of their opponents to be like Abu Jahl. This is a common Ahmadi tactic. Ahmadi’s see all of these discussions as a lying competition and thus never engage honestly. Instead Ahmadi’s do death duels (Mubahila’s) and pray for their enemies to die. In this specific quote, Ahmadi’s claim that they don’t care if they are living in Pakistan and 99% of the country is against them, when Ahmadi’s will win, they will force their opponents to show their face and be humiliated. Mirza Tahir Ahmad responds by saying that when Ahmadi’s do takeover Pakistan, they will show sympathy to their opponents, however, the purport of the essay in Al-Fazl was much different, Mirza Tahir Ahmad was simply watering down the statement from the Al-Fazl.
Mirza Tahir Ahmad direct quotes Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri wrote on Page 6 of his pamphlet:
“Under the auspices of the British and the Jews, Qadianiat is determined to swallow the whole world. The Khalifa of Qadian has openly announced: ‘We do not know when God will commit the charge of the world to us but on our side, but we will be ready”.
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri also quoted the Al-Fazl of 1-10-1952
Mirza Tahir Ahmad tells us that “Director of Propagation of MKA wrote this article and does in-fact have to do with the aggressive nature of tabligh in Ahmadi’s.
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri also quoted the Al-Fazl of 2-14-1922
Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that this is a false reference, instead he says that it is really referring to the Al-Fazl of 2-27-1922. Mirza Tahir Ahmad admits that this quote is true, however, brief. His father, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad did say that Ahmadi’s are looking to take over the world, however, its per the Quran that Islam would take over the world, Mirza Tahir Ahmad argues, he quotes 9:33.
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri claims that Rabwah was created in the same vein as Israel, a favor from the USA and British
Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that the acquisition of Rabwah had nothing to do with British help. However, at that time, the governor of the Punjab was British and he made the final decision to sell 1034 acres of land to Mirza Basheer ud DIn Mahmud for dirt cheap. Mirza Tahir Ahmad also fails to mention that Zafullah Khan was working behind the scenes and helped make this sale a final deal. In those days (1947–1953), Ahmadi’s had lots of political power and were unapologetically aggressive towards the Muslims of Pakistan. When his sale was in-progress, the press noted how Ahmadi’s were getting a sweet deal and the government was taking a loss. MIrza Basheer ud Did Mahmud Ahmad became the leader and then he leased out land to Ahmadi’s and thus became a millionaire. For the first time ever, Ahmadi’s were handed over a headquarters, a state within a state, which allowed the Ahmadi’s to organize and get advantage over all the Muslims of Pakistan. It should be noted that no other minority was given any tract of land as such, not the Christians, Hindus or Sikhs of Pakistan. Mirza Tahir Ahmad even quotes the Inqilab of 8-31-1948, page 6, columns 2&3, wherein an announcement of the pending sale was posted. However, this is normal when an auction is happening, a public notice must be published in the press.
Mirza Tahir Ahmad gives the Ahmadi opinion that only Muslims should be allowed in Israel/Palestine
Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that this is the Ahmadi position. He claims that Ahmadi’s have always supported the Arabs and have been opposed to Zionism. He goes on and claims that Israel should come to an end. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri argued that ever since the end of WW-1 and the fall of the Ottoman empire, the Ahmadi’s were given access to Syria and Palestine in attempt to get converts and sway public opinion. Mirza Tahir Ahmad admits that Maulvi Jalal-ud Din Shams had been working in Syria since 1924, conflicting dates on his arrival in Syria, the ROR of 1931 tells us that he arrived in Damascus, Syria in July of 1925. However, Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that it was late in 1924 (See “From Rabwah to Tel Aviv (1976)). However, Shams was stabbed in December of 1927, as part of civil unrest which swept the country, a few months later, the French asked Maulvi Jalal ud Din Shams to leave, but his Khalifa refused, the Khalifa argued that Shams should be allowed to stay, hence, Shams stayed in protest of the French (see Khan for extensive details and the ROR of 1931). Nevertheless, on 3-9-1928, they demanded that he leave in 24 hours, which he did. Maulvi Jalal ud Din Shams was ordered by his Khalifa to move to Haifa, he arrived 8 days later on 3-17-1928. Khan writes extensively about Ahmadiyya in Syria and modern day Israel and gives new references from Britsh government documents, see Adil Hussain Khan (2015). From Sufism to Ahmadiyya: A Muslim Minority Movement in South Asia. Indiana University Press. p. 134. In the ROR of 1932, Jalal-uddin Shams mentions hows Jews are taking over Palestine, firstly, the British Government was administering these lands and was allowing Jews to move in and buy land. The same British Government had helped Ahmadi’s in Israel and most likely led them to Kababir. Cement of Superior quality? From Kababir? Jalal-uddin Shams also mentions how there was a huge family business in Kababir in cement work. This seems to have been a multi-million dollar enterprise (by today’s standards). Register mentions this fact also, it seems that the family that owned this business was totally converted to Ahmadiyya before Shams left. However, Shams tells us that some Jewish people had bought and taken over this business.
Did the British fund Ahmadiyya missions via Tehrik-e-Jadid?
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri claims that the entire Ahmadiyya global mission was secretly funded by the British. Mirza Tahir Ahmad calls this as ridiculous. He claims that the Kababir Jamaat had only donated a few shillings for Tehrik-e-Jadid, and thus this entire argument is false, he quotes the Al-Fazl of 2-7-1935.
Zafrullah Khan’s role in sabotaging the Muslim world
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri argued in his book that Zafrullah Khan was an agent of the British and the USA. He worked directly for them as he sabotaged the advances of the Muslim world post-colonialism. Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri is absolutely correct. The colonist developed a new strategy to subjigate the world, i.e. puppet states and puppet dictators, see the life of Saddam Hussein, Khadafi, and many many others. The USA and British were jockeying for position vs. the Russians and have operated as such since the end of WW-2 (1945-48). Naturally, Mirza Tahir Ahmad rejects this notion altogether. Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims argues that Jinnah should be considered a traitor as well. This is true, Jinnah was also a puppet of the West, they planted him in Pakistan and controlled his life. When he died, another puppet dictator was chosen, when they got tired of Liaquat Ali Khan, he was mysteriously assassinated (shot dead). Uptil the 1970’s, Ahmadi’s controlled the Muslim world via the British and the USA. King Faisal began to oppose Ahmadiyya in 1972-1973, he was shot dead soon thereafter. However, he exposed the Ahmadi’s as agents of the West. He stopped Ahmadi’s from coming to Mecca for Hajj and had even urged the entire Muslim world to follow his lead on the Ahmadi-issue. As we know, western powers have always looked for minority groups and propped them up as puppet leaders.
Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri mistakenly confused the data on Ahmadi’s and the Israeli military, he claimed that there were 600 Pakistani-Ahmadi’s
On this topic, Maulana Syed Muhammad Yousef Bannauri is mistaken. The truth is, the Arab-Ahmadi’s of Kababir are allowed to serve in the Israeli military, whereas the Muslims of Israel are not. The newspaper reports on this topic were totally wrong, they asserted something that was incorrect, it was an honest mistake nevertheless. Bannuari quoted the Nawai-i-Waqt magazine of 9-29-1975, that newspaper was quoting, “Israel: A Profile” (published in 1972), by a renowned Jewish Professor, I.T Naomi. Bannauri also quotes an interview of Maulana Zafar Ahmad Ansari which was published in a newspaper called the weekly “Tahir” of Lahore in its issue of December 22-28, 1975, which simply stated that the same, i.e., that there were roughly 600 Ahmadi’s in Israel and they were all eligible for duty in the Israeli military. Mirza Tahir Ahmad eventually agrees that the data is simply incorrect and wrong only in the idea that there are Pakistani’s in Israel. Factually, Israel had banned Pakistani’s from Israel since at least 1955.
Ahmadi’s in West Germany in the 1968?
Mirza Tahir Ahmad tells us that Bannauri claims that there are upwards of 4000 Ahmadi’s in Germany who are working with the government in some capacity to hurt Muslims.
Bannauri claims that Ahmadi’s in Pakistan were busy writing reports of the activities of the Pakistani government and sending them abroad (1957)
This allegation is technically true. Ahmadi’s have been in-fact busy writing reports, this is what they are ordered to do via the Mirza family. Interestingly enough, Bannauri also mentioned the “Haqiqat Pasand Party of Ahmadi’s”, these were rogue Ahmadi’s in Rabwah and other places in Pakistan who were working on exposing the Mirza family. In response to this, Mirza Tahir Ahmad accuses Bannauri of being a spy.
Did Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad oppose the creation of Israel?
Mirza Tahir Ahmad goes on to argue that his father, the 2nd Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad opposed the creation of Israel. Mirza Tahir Ahmad tells us that his father was quoted by an Arab newspaper, “The Annazha” under the caption, “Alkufro Millatun Wahida”, under the date of 7-12-1948. It seems that some Ahmadi’s sent a speech of Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad from Lahore, in this speech, the Ahmadi Khalifa told Muslims to oppose the creation of Israel and Zionism by any means necessary, he accused the USA of supporting Zionism. There was another newspaper that also quoted the Ahmadi Khalifa, it was the “Al-Shura” of Baghdad, in its magazine of 6-18-1948, the caption was “An Address by Hazrat Mirza Mahmud Ahmad”.
Mirza Tahir Ahmad goes on to argue that Zafrullah Khan was a shining star of the Muslim World
This is a total lie. Zafrullah Khan sabotaged the Muslim world and was a puppet of the western powers. He quotes many leaders of Muslim countries in the 1950’s as they praised Zafrullah Khan.
