We are reporting an incident from August 3rd, 1913, wherein the Ahmadi Khalifa (Maulvi Noorudin, who was living with one leg and immobile) supported the governments actions in shooting 20-30 Muslims who were rioting the decision to tear down a portion of a mosque (the famous Cawnpore [also spelled Kanpur] mosque shootings)(See the ROR of Jan-1940 also). Nowadays, Ahmadi’s cry when their mosque’s are torn down or partially demolished, however, when the British were in India, Ahmadi’s benefited and always took the side of the British government. The British government seems to have torn down this small portion of a mosque for a road, in the USA, we would call this as the concept of “Eminent domain”. The “Pagham-e-Sulh” magazine (Lahori-Ahmadi centric) supported Muslims and their agitation against the govt. Whereas, Noorudin wrote to the effect that “a bathroom forms no part of a mosque” and he reprimanded Ahmadis from supporting the rioters in the Pagham-e-Sulh. Eventually, Noorudin called this newspaper as “pagham-e-jang”, as a result of the publishing of “Izaharal Haq”. Whatever his comments were, it is obvious that he was displeased.
Furthermore, after 1914, Qadiani-Ahmadis as led by Khalifa 2 didn’t play a role in supporting Muslim ambitions in the sub-continent, whereas the Lahoris were trying to build bridges with the Muslim community and were even satisfied by converting people to Islam and not Ahmadiyyat. The tabligh work of Kamalludin sahib in England highlights that concept. Khalifa 2 was more concerned with preserving the uniqueness of the Ahmadiyya movement.
