Zia was born an Ahmadi. He also seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya in late 1941, just to join the British-Indian Army as an officer. Following civil disorder, Zia deposed Bhutto in a military coup and declared martial law on 5 July 1977. Bhutto was controversially tried by the Supreme Court and executed less than two years later, for allegedly authorizing the murder of Nawab Muhammad Ahmed Khan Kasuri, a political opponent. It seems that Zia immediately made pro-Qadiani statements, in this speech, he forcefully argued that only Allah can decide as to who is a Muslim. Thus, bemoaning the 2nd amendment wherein Ahmadi’s (of all sects) are declared as non-Muslim. Saqib Zeervi who was a famous Pakistani poet and a Qadiani. He claims to have met Zia (on the 25th/26th of July in Lahore) while the press was also invited. He explains how Zia called on him during this session and asked him why he hadn’t asked any questions. Saqib Zeervi claims that he questioned Zia specifically about his statements from 7-5-1977 in terms of him being a Muslim or not (at the 36:50 mark). Zia also said that he doesn’t need a PNA (Pakistan National Alliance) certificate either proving that he was a Muslim. Saqib Zeervi then asked Zia as to why he (Saqib Zeervi) would need a certificate from Zia proving that he was a Muslim. Zia immediately closed the session and left. Saqib Zeervi claims that he was never invited to another press conference again in his life. By 1982, Ahmadi’s were still dominating the job scene in the civil service of Pakistan.
Zia’s first speech on 7-5-1977, wherein he said that only Allah can decide as to who is a Muslim
Zia ul Haq’s first ever speech on Pakistani-national-television (and radio) as the leader of Pakistan, he claims that only Allah can decided as to who is a Muslim, no assembly and no country could ever decide that. This seems to be a sign that he was sympathizing with Ahmadi’s and was working with Ahmadi’s in his new government. We have been told by Ahmadi’s that by 1975, Bhutto was restricting the advancement of Ahmadi officer’s in all branches of the Pakistani military. This seems to have struck a nerve with the Khalifa. Zia immediately changed this policy, in fact, he hired a Lahori-Ahmadi and re-instated his rank of General, his name was Major General Abdullah Saeed Khan.
