Watch my video explanation on this herein. Per Ahmadiyya sources, Ahmadiyya movement reached in Bangladesh (then Bengal province) in 1905 when a man named Ahmad Kabir Noor Muhammad from Chittagong took initiation on the hand of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. The second man to join the community from Bengal was Rais Uddin Khan, of Kishorganj. His wife Syeda Azizatunnisa also took initiation and she was the first Ahmadi woman from Bengal. In 1909 a student named Mubarak Ali from Bogra went to Qadian and also became a member of the community. The Ahmadiyya movement gained speed in 1912 when a well known sage from Brahmanbaria, Moulana Syed Muhammad Abdul Wahed, became Ahmadi. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community became officially established in Bengal in 1913 with the name of “Anjuman e Ahmadiyya”. Its unclear how it was managed from Qadian from 1913 to 1947. However, after 1947, it was controlled from Rabwah. In 1971, Bangladesh finally got independence. A sitting Khalifa has never visited. We estimate less than 10,000 Ahmadi’s in the whole country by 2021.
It seems like the first person Bengali to join Ahmadiyya coincided with the British partition of Bengal of 1905. MGA immediately claims to have gotten a divine revelation which was published in the February edition of the English-Review of Religions of 1906. In this famous revelation, MGA was claiming that Bengalis would be conciliated. Meaning that the Bengali people would given concession, given compensation. MGA mentions this exact revelation in 1907 via Haqiqatul Wahy, he again writes the same.
However, by 1911, the Bengal was re-united by the British. Ahmadiyya editors at Qadian began to assert that this was the true purport of MGA’s revelation, which was a lie. In 1947, the Bengal was split up again, the majority of it 85% of land mass went to Pakistan, and 15% was given to India. Furthermore, by 1971, Bangladesh was invented. Thus, MGA’s fake revelation was totally disproven.
How many Ahmadi’s are in there in Bangladesh?
We estimate no more than 10,000 Ahmadi’s in all of Bangladesh. Ahmadiyya sources claim 100,000, based on a news report from 2004. However, that news report doesn’t give a source, thus, the claim is dubious.

Missionary In-charge by 2021?
It seems to be Maulana Abdul Awwal Khan Chaudhry sahib. He has been the missionary-in-charge since 1988. He participates in Shotter Shondhane, a bi-monthly live phone-in program on Muslim Television Ahmadiyya (MTA) International. A vocal activist against religious fanaticism, he has represented the Ahmadiyya community in numerous international conferences and has visited the United States under the International Visitors Leadership Program. During the anti-Ahmadiyya uprising in Bangladesh, he spoke out boldly and persuasively against radicalism using love, logic, and prayer. Choudhury received a Shahid degree in 1988 from Jamia Ahmadiyya International University of Theology and Modern Languages in Rabwah, Pakistan. He has also served as head of local missionary training courses and as the chief editor and producer of MTA. Along with numerous translations, he has authored two books aimed at countering radicalism in Bangladeshi society: Under the Garb of Religious Edicts and Challenging the Utter Lies of Mufti Noorani.
Humanity First operations in Bangladesh
A man named Ahmad Kabir Noor Muhammad from Chittagong village and took initiation on the hand of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
He was the only Ahmadi in the whole of Eastern Bengal at that time. He conducted lots of meetings and spread the news of the advent of MGA. Immediately mukhalifat (opposition) cropped up. Mullahs started agitating against him and tried to stop him in many ways. But he continued to do tabligh resolutely and had a lot of munazaras (debates) with the ulamas. His letters and reports describing the mukhalifat were published in the “Badr” newspaper in Qadian in 1907.
Moulana Ahmad Kabir Noor Mohammad used to explain the death of Hadhrat Isa (as)
elaborately. He wrote a book named, “Wafaate Masih Maroof or Zulfikar e Ali”. After its
publication he became famous in the locality as “Isa mara Moulvi” [meaning “the moulvi who
killed Isa(Jesus)]. Moulana Ahmad Kabir Noor Mohammad (ra) tirelessly and relentlessly continued to spread the word of Ahmadiyyat. However, it is not known whether anyone was blessed with the opportunity to convert to Ahmadiyyat through him.
He hears about Maulawi Sayyed Muhammad ‘Abdul Wahid, and begins writing letters and communicating with him.
Rais uddin Khan is the second sahaba of Bengal. He was from village Nagergao of
Kishoreganj district and police station – Kotiyadi. He was blessed with the opportunity to visit
Qadian in 1906 and take bai’at at the hands of MGA and thus become a sahaba. He passed away at 12:30 midnight in September 1921, at the age of 56 or 58.
In Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 5, MGA mentions Maulawi Sayyed Muhammad ‘Abdul Wahid, who seems to be a Maulvi in Bengal, who converted to Ahmadiyya. He was a ‘pir’ from modern day Brahmanbaria, Bangladesh
Moulana Ahmad Kabir Noor is dead. He leaves behind many small children, he is in his 40’s. From 25th November 1912, Moulana Syed Abdul Wahed started taking Bai’ats in Brahmanbaria. Maulvi Noorudin had approved him to take bait’s.|
Rais uddin Khan passed away at 12:30 midnight in September 1921, at the age of 56 or 58.

Ahmadiyya literature is banned in Bangladesh.
The 47th national Ijtema of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Bangladesh was held on 19, 20 and 21 October 2018.
The significance of this Ijtema was that for the first time ever, the MKA Bangladesh national Ijtema was held 450 kilometres away from Dhaka city in Ahmadnagar on the Jamaat’s own land. Ahmadnagar is in the extreme northern part of Bangladesh.
A total of 1,517 Khuddam and Atfal from 78 Majalis participated in this Ijtema. Among them, 1,057 were Khuddam and 460 were Atfal. This is the highest ever attendance in our National Ijtema, Alhamdolillah.
