The 2nd Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad seems to have been making rounds at the Islamia College, Lahore and giving speeches. The Jan-1921 edition of the ROR tells us that an Ahmadi professor named Maulvi Hakam Ali (B.A.), who was teaching at the Islamia College in Lahore (MGA died about 100 yards from here) was attacked by students of all backgrounds for not helping with the non-cooperation movement. Just a year earlier, the 2nd Khalifa gave a speech at the same Islamia college (on 2-26-1919). The Dec-1920 edition of the ROR also discusses how the Ahmadiyya Movement is against the non-cooperation movement. The ROR of Nov-1920 tells us the same. The Aug-Sep-1920 edition of the ROR published a speech entitled, “Muhammad and Ahmad”. This is allegedly a speech from 2-18-1920, it doesn’t specify as to where, it only says Lahore. In this speech, the Khalifa argues that more prophets can come. The July-1920 edition of the ROR gives the substance of the speech in Amritsar on 2-22-1920. The April-May-1920 edition of the ROR reports that the 2nd Khalifa gave a speech on 2-15-20 at the Bradlaugh Hall in Lahore. The Jan-Feb-1919 edition of the ROR reports that the 2nd Khalifa gave a speech on “Islam and the International Relations”, at the Bradlaugh Hall at Islamia College, he gave another speech on “Causes of the Early Dissensions in Islam”, the Muslim Historical Society seems to have invited him.
The father of Khalifa Rasheed ud Din (Khalifa Hameed-ud-Din) famously was a founder of the Anjuman-i-Himayat-i-Islam (founded in 1884, Noorudin was also a member, as well as Allama Iqbal)(in a mosque known as Masjid Bakan inside Mochi Gate, Lahore, by Khalifa Hameed-ud-Din). In 1890, the Anjuman-i-Himayat-i-Islam also published “Ibtal uluhiyyat-i Masih” by Nur ud-Din, with the permission of the author and for the “benefit of the people of Islam”, as it says on the title page. It also publicly endorsed other Ahmadi writings in its monthly Risalah. In the 1890s, as you know, Khwaja Kamal ad-Din and Muhammad Ali taught at Islamia College. Islamia College was established by this very Anjuman. There must have been a lot of interaction between the Ahmadiyya Anjuman in Lahore and the Himayat-i Islam, because since 1914, Islamia College and the Ahmadiyya Buildings were on the same street. Also, how does one explain the role of Muhammad Iqbal? He still had a positive attitude towards members of the Lahore group, such as Khwaja Kamal ad-Din in 1911 and even after that. Why did he change his position later on and attack the community?
