After returning from an extensive tour in Europe and with a small piece of metal in his neck, the 2nd Khalifa spent lavishly on a reception at the Beach Luxury Hotel in Karachi, Pakistan in September of 1955. Ahmadiyya sources claim that the 2nd Khalifa gave a lecture on Sep-21-1955 ( See Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 17, pp. 29-34 also). Many local newspapers commented on this reception, a few of them are as follows, Roznama Inqilab of Karachi, Roznama Jang of Karachi, The Daily Evening Star of Karachi, The Daily Pakistan Standard of Karachi, Roznama Amroz of Karachi, Roznama Millat of Lahore, Roznama Nawa-i-Kashmir of Lahore, and Roznama Pasbaan of Dhaka.

Roznama Inqilab of Karachi reported on 23 September 1955:

“The Imam of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad said that today Europe is starving for Islam, since they are unable to find peace anywhere else. Therefore, we just need to carry out tabligh and convey to them the message of Islam, and they will be ready to accept it. He said that a time will come when America and Europe will accept Islam [in large numbers]. He appealed to the Muslims telling them to leave aside their internal disputes and unite to preach the Unity of God. He proposed that if every citizen of Karachi donated five rupees each, two million people could raise an amount of ten million rupees, which could be utilised to carry out tabligh in Europe on a large scale. While narrating his tour of Europe, he told:

“‘In every European country where I visited, the people would meet me and inquire about Islam with great interest. I delivered a speech at a college in Switzerland that was translated into various languages. A student expressed that “if there are such great features of Islam, then why can’t the Muslims and Christians jointly preach the message of Unity of God in those areas where people do not believe in God?”’

“Mirza Sahib continued by saying that ‘We are required to send tablighi missions [to Europe] as much as possible, which may not necessarily be sent by Ahmadis, rather by Sunnis, Shias, Ahl-e-Hadith, and Aga Khanis as well. […] Our Jamaat is a small community, thus, if we send 10 [tablighi] missions, the others should send 10,000 missions, creating a spirit of competition in tabligh, which will surely be beneficial [for the cause of Islam].’”
The Roznama Millat of Lahore reported on 24 September 1955:

“While speaking at a reception held at the Beach Luxury Hotel, Head of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud emphasised the need to send Muslim delegations to the European countries [for tabligh]. Mirza Sahib, who just recently returned from his tour of Europe, was narrating his impressions about the tour. He said that the Europeans are very eager to learn about Islam since wherever he visited, the people insisted that Muslim delegations be sent there in order to teach them about Islam. He stated that a huge number of people are ready to accept Islam, provided arrangements are made to convey to them the true teachings of Islam. He found there were many who favoured [the Islamic teachings of] purdah and polygamy. Towards the end of his speech, Mirza Sahib emphasised the need to raise funds for sending Muslim delegations to foreign countries.” 

Roznama Jang of Karachi reported on 24 September 1955:

“While speaking at a private gathering, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud stated there is a need to send tablighi [preaching] delegations to the European countries to propagate Islam. […] He said that amongst those who met with him in London, many were in favour of the [Islamic teachings of] purdah and polygamy. He also advised raising funds for sending tablighi delegations to foreign countries.”
Roznama Pasbaan of Dhaka wrote on 24 September 1955:

“While speaking at a gathering in Karachi, the Imam of the Ahmadiyya Community, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, said there are many opportunities for propagating Islam in Europe, particularly in Germany, where the people desire to learn a lot about Islam. He further said that those people are continuing to come closer to Islam, since they have an eagerness and quest for searching the truth, and it is only Islam which can satisfy them. Therefore, this is the time to show them the true and correct pathway towards Islam.” 

اِک ‬وقت‭ ‬آئے‭ ‬گا‭ ‬كہ‭ ‬كہيں‭ ‬گے‭ ‬تمام‭ ‬لوگ

ملّت‭ ‬كے‭ ‬اس‭ ‬فدائی ‬پہ‭ ‬رحمت‭ ‬خدا‭ ‬كرے

“The time will come when everyone will say, ‘May God have mercy on this devotee of the nation.’”
