What is Lecture Ludhiana? In our opinion, MGA did not give this lecture, he went to Ludhiana and just like Delhi, no speeches were given. The English review of religions doesn’t give any indication that MGA was on tour in Oct-Nov of 1905 (See the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 758-761). In the Al-Hakam of September-1906, the editor claims that MGA was in Delhi, Ludhiana, Amritsar and gave speeches in the Oct-Nov timeframe. This alleged lecture was included into Ruhani Khuzain of 1984, and continued into Ruhani Khuzain (2008 edition).
MGA had serious problems giving public speeches and leading prayers, he normally had someone on his team would lead these for him, in fact, MGA proved this weakness of his in 1889, his inability to give a public speech at the Aligarh University in 1890 is major clue. Furthermore, the fact that “Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam” was actually a speech delivered by Maulvi Abdul Kareem, who also led salaat at Qadian, since MGA never led Salaat in his life. Furthermore, MGA would claim that the hadith which stated that Esa (as) would pray behind the imam, signified how MGA would never lead prayers. Thus, Maulvi Abdul Kareem was the speech-guy and the Imam of the mosque in Qadian, since 1891, before that, there is no records of MGA leading Salaat as an Imam. Further, Noorudin and Amrohi would fill in as needed and were most likely also the chief ghost-writers for Ahmadiyya Inc.
In this book, MGA and team of writers claimed to have 300,000 Ahmadi’s in their ranks.
Maulvi Abdul Karim normally did all of MGA’s important public speeches, however, he seems to have died on 11 October 1905, MGA and his team had stayed in Qadian for all of 1905, and the majority of 1904. That was over 16 months in Qadian, most likely because of plague. Nevertheless, on October 22, 1905, MGA and his teams set out for Delhi. In Delhi, no speech of MGA was read-out by anyone. MGA and his team stayed for 13 days. They left Delhi on the evening of November 4th.
1905, November 5th
MGA was returning from Delhi (this was this final trip east of Qadian) and he and his team had scheduled a lecture in Ludhiana.
1905, November 6th
A lecture was arranged for November 6, at 8:30 a.m. in Committee Bagh at Ludhiana. This lecture exploded into a riot and British-white police officers/military men kept MGA safe. MGA and his caravan left for Qadian immediately via horse and carriage, which was the safest mode of transport in those days. The next morning at 8am they arrived at Batala. They were in Qadian 4 hours later. The truth is, MGA never gave any lecture at Amritsar, he got up to speak and was unable to, he then took a drink of tea in-front of a crowd of fasting Muslim, which created the riot, since it is disrespectful to behave as such. MGA never gave any public speeches, nor did he ever lead prayers or deliver any Friday Sermons. The English review of religions doesn’t give any indication that MGA was on tour in Oct-Nov of 1905. See the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 758-761.
In the Al-Hakam of September-1906, the editor claims that MGA was in Delhi, Ludhiana, Amritsar and gave speeches in the Oct-Nov timeframe.
