Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad was the Khalifa of the Ahmadiyya community from 1914 to 1965. He was forced to flee from Qadian via official Indian military escort in the early hours of September 11th, 1947. However, just before he fled to Lahore, he issued an order that all Ahmadi’s living in the Eastern side of Punjab (the India side) should remain steadfast and not leave India. The truth is, Ahmadi’s were being killed in Qadian and all over the Eastern Punjab. The situation was so bad that Zafrullah Khan contacted Ghandi and had them send a representative to Qadian to check on things. As soon as he arrived in Lahore, he had the Al-Fazl publish an announcement that Ahmadi’s should be willing to give up 50% of their wealth for Ahmadiyya. Uptil November of 1947, the Khalifa was telling Ahmadi’s that they would in-fact return to Qadian in grand fashion, however, this never happened. Bashir Ahmad Orchard was part of the caravan of 2 trucks that traveled from Qadian to Lahore, however, we are unsure if this was the same caravan as the Khalifa.
Quote from Al-Fazl via the Lahori-Ahmadi’s
Al-Fazl (Note: The Official Organ of the Rabwah Jama’at), Qadian of 12th September 1947 carried the following news on page 3:
“”””On the night between 10th and 11th September, the news was broadcast from Radio Pakistan that the respected Imam of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat, Qadian, after consulting representatives of his Jamaat has decided that all Ahmadis of East Punjab, particularly those of the Qadian Jamaat, should stay where ever they are. They should not leave their stations under any circumstances. Women and children should be evacuated to Western Punjab. They can be brought back as soon as conditions improve.””””
