In the census of British India of 1901, there were roughly 12,000 Ahmadi’s in India (see Griswold, 1912), out of the roughly 12,000 Ahmadi’s, 1,113 were Ahmadi’s in the Punjab, the United Provinces reported 931 Ahmadi’s and the Bombay presidency reported 10,000 Ahmadi’s (Griswold thought this number was exaggerated). Why would there be more Ahmadi’s in the Bombay area then in the Punjab? Thus, this number is inaccurate (see Walter, Chapter VI). By 1911, there were NO Ahmadi’s left in Bombay. Interestingly, the plague broke out in Bombay in 1896 and MGA made many prophecies about it.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________By 1896, MGA had barely 2 Ahmadi’s listed in his famous list of the first 313 Ahmadi’s (see Dard) from Bombay, the plague broke out there the very same year. The names are:
–Maulawi Abdul Hakim, Dharwar, Bombay
–Munshi Zainuddin Muhammad Ibrahim, Engineer, Bombay
Griswold tells us that the 1911 census shows 18,695 Ahmadi’s in the Punjab only, he doesn’t give the number for UP or Bombay residency. This is totally in-line with the British government official records.
Per the NA of 1974, there were only 30,000 Ahmadi’s in the British India. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, in his newspaper, the Muslim Sunrise, claims 700,000 Ahmadi’s in the world(see page 20).
Per the NA of 1974, there were only 56,000 Ahmadi’s in British India.
This census might not have been taken because of WW-2.
In 2011, Nicholas H. A. Evans was told that there were 80,000 to 200,000 Ahmadi’s in India, which is an exaggeration. Per his records, there were roughly 3000 Ahmadi’s in Qadian.
