The Mirza family has always been favored by the British government, there is no doubt in all of this. Even MGA’s cousins were allowed to be declared innocent in crimes when they were clearly guilty. In this specific instance, the British government spent millions of rupees just to connect Qadian to Batala for Ahmadi’s to travel. There are no other stops from Batala to Qadian, there are no other stations. This might be the reason why Qadian was sacked by Hindus/Sikhs during the partition, since it had a rail line, which was strategically important, and 26 Ahmadi’s were killed.

BRITISH-QADIANI COLLUSION IN CONSTRUCTION OF BATALA QADIAN RAILWAY TRACK AND STATION
Train service from Batala to Qadian was opened in 1928. Prior to this, it was most difficult for the natives of Qadian to cover this distance of 16 KM, from Batala to Qadian. Bull carts, Tongas, Donkeys, Mules and Horses were used for the transportation of men and goods. Traveling on tonga and bull cars was painful because of the uneven and rough terrain. During the rainy season the town of Qadian was practically cut off from rest of the world due to inundation of the ditches and pits in and around Qadian.
On 26 May, 1908 when Mirza Ghulam Qadiani died at Lahore at about 10:00 in the morning, it took about 20 hours for the dead body to reach Qadian because they have to walk whole night from Batala to Qadian with dead body on their shoulders.
Although Qadian was not situated on main line of Amritsar -Gurdaspur railway section and economically it was not much viable to construct a railway track here, yet In order to facilitate their puppet party, the Britishers approved the plan of Railway track from Batala to Qadian and completed it in a record time.
As per plan, It was to be built upto Botari and onward to Sri Har Gobindpura but once it reached Qadian, the British colonial govt put an end to it and uprooted the rest of the laid track beyond Qadian.
In order to protect costly agricultural land and other property including Bahishti Maqbarah, at the south of the Qadian, Jamat ahmadiyya wanted the train track to enter into Qadian from north. Muslims, Sikh and Hindus of Qadian were demanding that the track and railway Station to be built on the southern side of the Qadian because the agricultural land on the north were mostly owned by them. The construction of track and station on north would also increase the cost.
Khalifa Mirza Mahmoud appointed a team comprising Mufti Sadiq, Munshi Imamuddin and Shaikh Muhammad Din to coordinate with the British Authorities. Mirza Mahmoud deputed Sheikh Muhammad Din to remain with the European Engineer and his Muslim team day and night. They engaged the British young Engineer heading the Railways authorities into negotiation.
Mirza Mahmoud convinced the authorities that the land on South is more precious than that in the North of Qadian. Finally, as usual, the Britishers favoured their puppets. The track was built on the north of the town as per the demand of Jamaat Qadianiyyah. The Qadian Railway Station was also built where Mirza Mahmoud and Mirza Bashir had suggested.
When the construction of Railway line was completed, sweet was distributed among the labourers by the Jamaat. A lavish party was given in honour of the European Engineer and his surveyors team at the Bungalow of Nawab Muhammad Ali Khan sb which was also attended by elder of Jamaat. Talking on this occasion the said Railway Officer told that he had special kind of energy while he was working on this project and he had completed it in the shortest possible time.
On 19 December, 1928 opening ceremony was held, when the first Train departed from Amritsar to Qadian. Mirza Mahmoud, Mirza Bashir, Mirza Sharif and other elders of Jamaat including Molvi Sarwar Hussain were on Board the first train. Jamaat announced a frivolous Roya (dream) of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani regarding the opening of train from Qadian. This roya is not mentioned anywhere else in his books. All Qadiani schools remained closed for celebrating the inaugural of train system.
A tract containing Mirza Mahmoud,s message on the occasion was distributed. Mirza Mahmood declared that opening of this railway train is the sign of Allah in favour of Jamaat, Ahmadiyya students were singing songs and chanting slogans in joy on the train journey all the way from Amritsar to Qadian. Jamaat received many more participants in its next Jalsa Salana because of this train.
However, contrary to the claims of Jamaat,s celebrations and the boastings of Mirza Mahmoud, Allah did not extend this favour (if at all it was a favour) to Jamaat any longer. The party and its leader Mirza Mahmoud who claims himself and his Jamaat to be divinely appointed, has to flee from Qadian in August 1947. Mirza Mahmoud and his mother Nusrat Jehan were even deprived of getting buried in Qadian.
MGA’s comments on the train in Qadian
After reading this news, attention was suddenly drawn to a divine dream of the Promised Messiahas, dated 14 April 1905:
“I saw in a dream that I was riding a vehicle like a railway train through the bazaar in Qadian […]” (Tadhkirah [English], p. 735)
There are such narrations by the companions, for instance in Tadhkirah, some narrations are mentioned from Register Riwayat:
“A. Mirza Qudratullah of Mohalla Chabak Sawaran, Lahore narrated:
“Probably in 1902, the Promised Messiahas went out for his morning walk […] When we arrived near the village known as Nawan Pind […] Khalifah Rajab-ud-Din told me: ‘[…] The Promised Messiahas has made a mark on the ground with his staff where the railway line will pass.’ The words uttered by the beloved Messiahas of God Almighty were fulfilled many years later. [Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, Vol. 4, p. 177]
“B. The Promised Messiahas said: The Railway line would also be extended up to here [Qadian]. [Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, Vol. 5, p. 81, Riwayat Shah Muhammad of Qadian; Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, Vol. 6, p. 7, Riwayat Nath-thu Khan of Qadian]
“C. (The poor condition of the road from Batala to Qadian having been mentioned), the Promised Messiahas said: ‘Be patient, the time will come when this place [Qadian] will be connected with the railway.’ [Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, Vol. 10, p. 212, Riwayat Sardar Begum wife of Chaudhry Muhammad Husain Talwandi Inayat Khan]” (Tadhkirah [English], pp. 1075-1076)
