Qadian was invaded by 80,000 refugees in late August of 1947 (see Mirza Tahir Ahmad, “Man of God”). Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that 70,000 Ahmadi’s (he writes them as Muslims) came to Qadian for the defense of the holy land of Ahmadi’s, however, this seems to be a lie. Per the census conducted by the British government, there were only 56,000 in all of British India by 1931. The normal population was roughly 10-12,000 people in Qadian, of which about 10,000 were Ahmadi’s (see Spate). By 1947, Qadian had the highest concentration of Ahmadi’s in the world. Qadian was a mini-vatican, a state within a state (see Spate). Nevertheless, the Khalifa abandoned 10,000 Ahmadi’s, men/women and children, and left them to be viciously murdered. The full account of the amount of Ahmadi’s killed has never been posted, the Khalifa fled in late-August. Further, the Khalifa seems to have already known that Qadian was going to be given to India, he thus ordered enough food for 3 Jalsa’s. There was also a bomb blast during a Friday Sermon at the Masjid Aqsa in roughly July 25th of 1947 (see the ref in the below). Illegal guns were also found at Qadian (see the Hindustan Times in the below), Mirza Tahir Ahmad also mentioned this in his book, “Man of God”.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Military Units at Qadian
Spate’s map of August 1947 shows that there were roughly 10-20 tanks in and around Qadian. However, he doesn’t explain these were operated by the Ahmadiyya Movement and most likely given to Ahmadi’s by the British Government. It would have been easy to get them to Qadian, since the train went from Batala to Qadian with no stops, this rail line was built as a favor to the Mirza family at Qadian and most likely costed 1-3 million in today’s money. Nevertheless, the Khalifa at Qadian knew that Qadian would be lost to India as early as January of 1947, thus, he ordered enough food to last 3-4 Jalsa’s, in other words, about 1 year supply of food was stored ahead of time at Qadian. In July-August of 1947, Mirza Tahir Ahmad was made an officer and controlled a unit of Ahmadi fighters (who were most likely armed with WW-2 weapons), since there were 199 Ahmadi officers serving in the British military in 1947. Regular military units came in during late August of 1947. Mirza Tahir Ahmad had a hole dug under MGA’s house and a cache of weapons was kept right there. Mirza Tahir Ahmad was 19 years old at the time. He tells of a story wherein the Indian police raided the house of MGA and dug up the area where the guns were supposed to be, however, the guns had been removed. Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that Ahmadi-militia men patrolled a 30-mile radius from Qadian, however, that is an obvious exaggeration, the tanks at Qadian most likely patrolled in a 3 mile radius of the center of Qadian. These tanks were most likely M4 Sherman tanks.
An Ahmadi mullah, Chaudhry Fateh Sial was arrested and jailed. He was part of the Ahmadi soldiers and seems to have committed many crimes. On 14 September 1947: During the Indian partition, Ahmadi’s became a prime targets of rioters. The Indian government arrested Hazrat Syed Zainul Aabidin Waliullah Shah (ra), Nazir Umur-e-Ama… (Director of General Affairs) of Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya Qadian. He was charged with premeditated murder. He has written about the events of his imprisonment in his book, Hayat-ul-Akhirat. A day prior, Hazrat Chaudhry Fateh Muhammad Sayal (ra), Nazir Tabligh (Director Outreach)..was also apprehended. He was arrested by police of another district in Qadian. It was alleged that he had gone to a distant village and shot dead a non-Muslim. All these allegations were false and they were both acquitted. (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 10, p. 159).
Bashir Ahmad Orchard was an officer in the British military was also there. We are sure that he led military units also. Bashir Ahmad Orchard also had a very expensive portable camera at Qadian and made a video from 1947. Ahmadi’s were even flying aircraft over Qadian doing surveillance. Another short video of the caravan is posted here.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________There is another Khutbah by the Khalifa
Khutbat-e-Mahmood August 1st, 1947, page 253, ” QOUM KEE IZAT HAZAAROUN LAKHOUN JAANOUN SAY GHI ZIAYADA QEEMATI HAI”
Second Khalifa has labeled those who left the premises of a Jalsa Gah in Qadian to save their lives after there was an explosion, as munafiq and coward.
“…..Now there were a few people who ran away, but these hypocrites(Munafiqeen) and cowards will not identify themselves. Due to their hypocrisy(Munafiqat) and cowardice, the whole jamaat got a bad rap and those who are ready to sacrifice the last drop of blood for the sake of religion, they also got a bad reputation because of the cowards who ran away, and because of them the blame is now on others too and everyone has now got a bad reputation.
It was obligatory on you (the jamaat), to have found out all these criminals and you should have given me their names so that one could know which people in the jamaat are cowards and hypocrites(Munafiq) and will prove to be weak links when the time comes…..
Now it is your responsibility to find out who each one of those guys was who ran away and just as we drag out the rats who spread plague, you should find those cowards and present them before us…
I say to those who ran away, o naive people, if there was really a bomb blast, it had already happened and those who were going to be wounded were already wounded, then why did you run away except that with this ‘zaleel harkat’ you have put a ‘kalank ka Tika’ on your forehead. So I give one more chance to the jamaat to catch each and every one of these people who ran, and have their names (sent ) in writing.
Hindustan times 18 and 19 sept 1947
During his Friday Sermon on 15 August 1947, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih II shed light on the unprecedented significance of this happening.
The 2nd Khalifa said:
“This day is like the Yaum-e-Barzakh for [British] India. Today, right after 12 am, India has got freedom from British rule, and now, this country has been divided into two sovereign governments: Indian Dominion and Pakistan. After a long period of 90 years – meaning that if we count it since the time of ghadar [the 1857 mutiny] when the Islamic Kingdom was still intact to some extent in India – this country has got freedom from the rule of a foreign government, and specifically in the case of Punjab, it has been freed from a foreign rule after a hundred years. […]
“Today the Indians can surely feel they have their own government in the country. […] As far as the law or constitution is concerned, every Indian deserves more rights than any foreigner within their country. But before today, a foreigner was deemed more deserving of rights, whereas an Indian was deemed less deserving despite living in their own country. This is such a huge transition that one’s heart is unable to imagine it.” (Al Fazl, 16 August 1947, p. 1)
The 2nd Khalifa further said that if this transition had occurred without the painful happenings, then everyone’s heart would have been filled with happiness.
The 2nd Khalifa said that along with this freedom, the scenes of violence and oppression were also apparent, and although God Almighty had granted freedom to this country, the country did not free itself from violence and oppression.
The 2nd Khalifa continued his sermon by saying:
“We have a relationship with both of the newly established governments because the religious communities have no affiliation to a specific country or government. The members of our Jamaat are present in both Pakistan and India as well. Even before this, members of our Jamaat were present in Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Sudan, Malaya, Burma, Java, Sumatra, England, United States, East Africa, and West Africa as well. […] Therefore, this transition is not new for our Jamaat, because members of our Jamaat were already living in many different countries as well.
“The only difference is just like there were three brothers in a family, and two of those brothers lived together and did not divide their property either, whereas the third brother had separated. After some time – due to some circumstances – the two brothers who were living together decided to divide their property and live separately. There was no special impact when the first brother got separated, but when these two brothers separate from each other, they will certainly feel some pain in their hearts upon seeing each other’s [new] homes and other arrangements, and their eyes will have tears.
“Therefore, although some of the members of our Jamaat were already living in other countries as well, those brothers who have separated now, used to live together for a long time. Now, we will meet each other just like people from different countries meet each other.
“Thus, on the occasion of this freedom and partition, we pray to God Almighty that He may grant progress to both these countries, enable them both to act with justice and equity and inculcate the spirit of love and affection between the people of both countries. May both countries strive to get better of each other – but through brotherhood, sympathy and sincerity – and in addition to the spirit of competition, they should also have the spirit of cooperation and sympathy.” (Al Fazl, 16 August 1947, p. 2)
