Intro
Watch my video on this herein. Modern day Netherlands is the home of the old Dutch Empire, which had many colonies all over the world, most notably in Indonesia, Africa and Suriname (South America). Although the Dutch Empire had allowed Ahmadi’s to come to Indonesia and Suriname in the 1920’s, they had not authorized Ahmadi’s to come to the Netherlands. It was after WW-2 and most likely via pressure from the British and the USA that Ahmadi missionaries were allowed into the Netherlands. Per Ahmadiyya sources, the jamaat was established in 1947 (See Mosques Around the World, 1994). Hafiz Qudratullah was the first formal missionary sent to Holland in 1947. However, Ahmadi missionaries had went to Holland and given lectures prior to this. By 2021, there are only 2-3 Ahmadiyya places of worship and one mission house.

Also, read my report on the history of Ahmadiyya in Indonesia and Suriname (old Dutch colonies).

How many Ahmadi’s are there in the Netherlands as of 2021?

We estimate that there are barely 500 Ahmadi’s in the Netherlands, this is based on the amount of places-of-worship, twitter accounts, photos, and other historical data. Ahmadiyya sources claim 1500, that is a lie.
