Intro
Burkini Faso is an old French colony. Thus, the Ahmadiyya movement didn’t get access to it until after WW-2. By 1960 Burkina Faso gained full independence from France. For over two decades following independence, the minority character of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was still observed until 1986 when the governmental authorities recognized and registered it as a Muslim community {{{{Cissé, Issa (2012). “La Ahmadiyya au Burkina Faso” (in French).}}}}

By 2021, we can only find 2 Ahmadiyya places of worship and barely 1000 Ahmadi’s in the entire country. It should also be noted that in 1994, Mirza Tahir Ahmad claimed 150,000 converts to Ahmadiyya from Burkini Faso, which was a total lie. The first Jalsa salana was in 1991, which is indicative of the slow growth of the Ahmadiyya community.

2002

In 2002 the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Burkina Faso opened the country’s first Muslim radio station in Bobo-Dioulasso, Burkina Faso’s second largest city. The station was opened primarily to respond to allegations against the Community and to present the Ahmadiyya perspective on Islamic issues. Since then the Community has so far opened three other radio stations. As a consequence, a number of Sunni organizations have turned their attention towards the same method of conveying their teachings.[4]
