Intro
Per the 2013 census by the Indian government, there are 20,000 people living at Qadian. We estimate that Ahmadi’s are 5-7% of the population, thus, there are roughly 2000-3000 Ahmadi’s living in Qadian by 2021 (See Nicholas Evans work). The rest of India is probably another 7000. Thus, we estimate that in all of India, there are barely 10,000 Ahmadi’s. In 2011, Nicholas H. A. Evans was told that there were 80,000 to 200,000 Ahmadi’s in India, which is a huge exaggeration. Of the 7000 Ahmadi’s outside of Qadian, we estimate that 2000 are in Kashmir. Which leaves about 5000 in the rest of India. It should also be noted that Mirza Tahir Ahmad was claiming that 40 million Indians converted to Ahmadiyya in 2001. Also read, the history of Ahmadiyya in Bombay, India (Mumbai). Read “Ahmadiyya in India, a full listing of buildings and Mosques” (1980). Also read about Ahmadiyya in South-East India, in Chennai.
