Dear readers, we have written about Ahmadiyya in the British colonies of West and East Africa. We are continuing to write more and more about Ahmadiyya in Africa. What about the Congo? Well, the Congo was a Belgium colony, wherein the worst atrocities were committed. The government of Belgium, much like the French, Spanish and Portugeuse, refused to allow Ahmadi’s to setup missions.
Nevertheless, it seems that in 2005, the Ahmadiyya community established a center in the Congo. By 2020, the Amir and Missionary-in-Charge of the Democratic Republic of the Congo is a Pakistani, Khalid Mahmood Shahid. The Ahmadiyya Congo Kinshasa Jamaat constructed a mosque in the province of Kwilu, Bandundu region. This remote village is on the bank of river Kwilu, about 450 kilometers from the capital Kinshasa. Ahmadiyya sources claim that 31 villages have converted. There is no land route to the mosque and the missionary and workers have to take boats to reach the site. The regional missionary of the Bandundu region, Farid Ahmad Bhatti Sahib, with his team, endeavoured to complete the task of building the mosque.
