Intro
The “Sadr Anjuman”, which literally translates as “President-Council” was created by MGA in his book, “The Will” at the end of 1905 and beginning of 1906. MGA had clearly put all of the power of the community into a body of 14 men. Maulvi Noorudin was the President, at least 5-6 were family members of MGA….through marriage or otherwise…The reference for this entry is (See Muhammad Ali, A Mighty Striving, PAGE 52). In 1907, there was a famous incident wherein the father-in-law (Mir Nasir Nawab) of MGA clashed with a decision of the Sadr Anjuman, MGA then issued an order that all decisions of the Anjuman would be final.

The members of the Sadr Anjuman didn’t change until 1910 (the full list of members is posted in the below). In 1910, Noorudin, the Khalifa resigned from this position as President and got Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad elected as President without a vote (See “Truth About The Split”, online english edition, pages 266-267). That dropped the number of people from 14 to 13. Ahmadiyya sources tell us that Mir Muhammad Ishaq became a voting member in 1912.  Thus giving the Mirza family 5 of the 14 voting members.

Nowadays, the head of this Council is called Nazre Aala (Executive Director). The Anjuman consists of various Nazarats (departments) like Treasury, Education, Justice, Properties, Propagation, Pensions, Guidance, Publication, Finance, and General Welfare. A Nazir (Director) heads each of the departments. The head offices of the Council are located in Qadian & Rabwah.
