Bashir Ahmad Orchard, the first non-desi-Ahmadi-imam


Intro

Dear readers, we have recently covered some of the non-pakistani-imams that were rushed through Jamia and even though they failed, were made imam’s by the Ahmadi Khalifa.  Bashir Ahmad Orchard, previously known as John Bren Orchard (April 26th, 1920 – July 8th, 2002), seems to be their first ever indigenous European Ahmadiyya Missionary, he was born in Torquay, England and thus became the first ever English-Ahmadi-missionary.  His brother was a Roman Catholic priest. But to the astonishment of his fellow officers, he began to take instruction in Ahmadiyya.  For Bashir Orchard, after the war, there were no prospects, things were bad and rationing of the basic food, Britain was devastated by the german bombing and overall war effort, there was rubble everywhere, things were not looking good for him. Joining Ahmadiyya was a good situation, where he got a super-young desi- woman, employment and comfy life.

He was sent off as a missionary by the 2nd Khalifa, however, he didn’t pass Jamia or any other islamic school, the Khalifa waived all of that and made Bashir Ahmad Orchard a Murrabi nevertheless.  He was given an important young Ahmadi woman, in fact, Orchard became a brother-in-law of the Khalifa since he married the only sibling of the Khalifa’s first wife.

His preaching was very unsuccessful, his son even admitted as much, both in Scotland and Guyana.  He seems to have been specifically used as the token English-Ahmadi and was marketed as such.  He also claimed to be a recipient of divine revelations and true dreams.

When he died in 2002, the ROR wrote the story of his life and conversion.  Bashir Ahmad Orchard interviewed.  His children interviewed.

His wife and children
He was married to Qanita in 1948 in either Lahore or Rabwah, she died in 2011, Ahmadiyya sources claim that she was 81 at death, which makes her DOB as roughly 1930.  She was the granddaughter of Dr. Khalifa Rasheed-ud-din and was the niece of Umme Nasir, first wife of Khalifatul Masih II.  They had 5 children in total.  2 daughters and 3 sons.  This is interesting, since Dr. Khalifa Rasheed-ud-din only had 2 daughters, one was married off to Mirza Basheer-ud-did Mahmud Ahmad and the other daughter was married to a Shia-Muslim.  Bashir Ahmad Orchard seems to have married into that tree.  Nasira Rehman is a daughter of his. Abida Rehman is another.  The son of Bashir Ahmad Orchard did an interview a few years ago, his son’s name is Nisar Ahmad Orchard.  He has another son named Nasir Orchard. Essah Orchard is also interviewed, he is a grandson of Bashir Ahmad Orchard.

His grandchildren arrested 

1944
He fought in WW-2 in France, was evacuated from Dunkirk, and was commissioned as an officer for British-India as he fought on the Burma front.  By age 24, he was a drunkard, heavy gambler and heavy smoker.  He most likely indulged in prostitutes like most British officers as well.  In 1945 through Sergeant Abdul Rehman Sahib Dehlvi he was introduced to Ahmadiyya.

April 1945
Orchard tells us that he visited Qadian during the final stages of the official Burma campaign.  By April, the Japanese had been totally beaten in Burma, a few months later, atom bombs were dropped.  During his trip to Qadian, he met the Khalifa and saw Qadian in full detail.  He then returned to his unit and defeated the Japanese and returned to England on April 21st, 1946.

1946
While in England, he visits the famous Ahmadiyya Fazl Mosque, and meets Jalal ud Din Shams and inquires what it would take to become an Ahmadi murrabi.  He is then accepted by the Khalifa and prepares to spend the rest of his life as an Ahmadi missionary.

May 1st, 1947
Orchard arrives in Qadian and is greeted by the Khalifa and given a warm reception.  He was given an ahmadi woman and was married.

A quote:

This event has been described by Maulana Shams:

After his release from the army, when he arrived in England, he stayed for two days only at Bristol with his relatives and so, on the third day, he was at the mosque in London. During his conversation with me he expressed his willingness to live at the mosque and become a Muslim missionary. I explained to him the responsibilities of a missionary and the required qualifications for missionary work. Eventually I promised him to see to his case sympathetically for missionary work and would write to him this matter. He was a little bit upset from my reluctance in accepting his offer readily. After a few days he, however, dedicated his life for the service of Islam unconditionally like other waqifeen. I sent his application to Hazrat Amir-ul-Momineen, with my opinion that he might be a useful missionary. I asked him to come and stay with us and to begin the study of Islam. Hazrat Amir-ul-Momineen graciously accepted his Waqf and Mr. Orchard began to work with other missionaries.
Review Of Religions, June 1947

August 1947–the partition
Orchard claims to have remained in Qadian until the partition, he then recalls a story wherein he was part of a major convoy from Qadian to Lahore.  He claims that his future wife was also in this convoy, she was in one of the trucks and he was in another (see 23:32 mark).  Although he couldn’t remember, he seems to have spent time in Lahore and Rabwah up until 1949, wherein he was sent to Glasgow, Scotland by the Khalifa.

1948 in Lahore and Rabwah
He is married into a major Ahmadi family, he is now a brother-in-law with the Khalifa.

1949–1952
He seems to have been stationed at Glasgow, Scotland by the Khalifa.  His wife went with him.

1952 – 1966
The Khalifa orders Orchard to go the west Indies and preach Ahmadiyya, his young wife went with him.  He went to Guyana to be specific.  The Ahmadiyya Jamaat doesn’t seem to have grown much in this area and in these 14 years.  Nor has it grown much after.

1966–1983
He returned to Glasgow, Scotland.  Even though he was a paid-employee of the Mirza family, he was allowed to sell stamps and thus make money for his own welfare as well as other random expenses.  His wife and kids lived in the mission house in Glasgow.  Thus, Ahmadiyya INC saved money.

1983, he leaves Scotland for England
He moved to South England and continued working as a missionary, first in Oxford and later to London.

May 1984
He is on the editorial board of the Review of Religions, see the  May 1984 edition.  He remained as its editor until at least December of 1990.  He doesn’t seem to be very good at giving speeches or leading prayers, the Ahmadiyya jamaat thus uses Orchard in an area wherein he might be of service, editing the english language.  Most of his writings are general in nature, he doesn’t have the capacity or knowledge to write about in-depth islamic topics.  Its unclear if he edited the Moslem Sunrise, it doesn’t seem so, however, he did have some of his essays published in it.

1993
He performs Hajj.  A collection of his writings are transferred

2002
He passes away.

Account of Bashir Ahmad Orchard

Bashir-Ahmad-OrchardTorquay is a delightful holiday resort on the south coast of Devon and it was there that I first saw the light of the day on 26th April 1920. My father was a doctor and my mother had been a nurse prior to her marriage. Class distinction existed more than it does today. My parents belonged to the upper middle class. My paternal grandfather had also been a doctor while my mother’s father was an admiral. The only grandparent I knew was my maternal grandmother and she died while I was still a young boy.

I had two elder brothers but no sisters. The eldest, who was three years older than me, met an untimely death during the Second World War when the battleship on which he served was sunk in the Mediterranean by enemy action. My other brother, who was inclined towards religion from a young age (and is now a Roman Catholic Priest), was at middle age, a Protestant priest in the Church of England, but subsequently had to quit his vocation. He took up teaching as a profession in a school. He again had the urge to priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. My mother also became a Roman Catholic soon after my brother’s conversion. She was a very religious lady all her life and regularly attended church. My father, however, was little interested in religion. One of my maternal aunts had been a missionary in china for forty years and had much to do in helping my brother first become a priest in the Church of England.

When I was three years old my father bought a house situated on a hill overlooking Torbay. It was on the fringe of the countryside at a point called Barton Cross. I used to love to roam the fields and woods also to find my way to the many beaches, which were not so very far away. I enjoyed gathering wild fruits and nuts. When in season, I used to get up in the early hours of the morning and search the fields for mushrooms before other people appeared on the scene for the same purpose. Those days remain with me as living memories.

My brothers and I went to Winchester Lodge Preparatory School. The headmaster was a keen cricketer who played for Wiltshire. I was in both the cricket and football teams. One by one we left the school, as we grew older and moved on to Monkton Combe, which is the name of a well-known public school on the outskirts of Bath. I never enjoyed school nor was a bright pupil. I left school at the age of sixteen without any kind of educational certificate. Once I expressed my desire to become a doctor and I thought my father would be pleased that I wanted to follow in his footsteps. He promptly rebuffed me and told me I could never become a doctor because I lacked the aptitude for diligent study.

I left school at the end of the summer term in 1936. During that last term my mother had been granted legal separation from my father and had taken up temporary residence in Bath. Later she settled in Bristol. I was at a loose end and for nothing better to do I joined the army although I was far below eighteen, which was the required minimum age. My regiment was the Somerset Light Infantry and my pay was two shillings (ten pence) a day. Life was tough and I did not find congenial companionship as I had been brought up in a more cultured society. I had signed up for seven years, but at the end of my second year, I wrote to my father requesting him to purchase my discharge, which was the only way of terminating my service. He promptly sent me a cheque for thirty-five pounds and within a few days I was back with my mother.

It appears that I still had some attachment for army life as I soon joined a Territorial Unit of the Royal Army Medical Corps. Territorials were part-time soldiers who normally did not have to train for more than one evening a week.

War clouds were looming on the horizon and on 3rd September 1939, Britain declared war on Germany. My unit was immediately mobilized and once again I was a full-time soldier. We were sent to France and later moved up into Belgium. The German offensive pushed us back to the beaches of Dunkirk from where the battered remnants of the British Expeditionary Force were evacuated back across the English Channel to their homeland. I remember boarding a boat crowded to capacity with dishevelled and weary troops. Almost immediately I fell asleep and when I awoke the boat was entering Dover harbour. Relief organisations were waiting to distribute tea and refreshments after which we were dispatched by train to a destination in Wales where, as heroes and not as prisoners, we were billeted in the cells of a local prison.

In 1941, I applied for a commission in the Indian army. I had to present myself before several interviewing boards and finally I was accepted as an officer cadet and sailed for India in 1942 with a contingent of other cadets. The ship was one in a large convoy, which took two months to reach Bombay. Our final destination was Bangalore where we underwent a six months’ course of training before being posted to our regiments as second lieutenants. I joined the 17th Dogra Regiment, which was stationed as Jullundur. Later was transferred to the Indian Army Ordnance Corps. I spent considerable time on active service in Assam and Burma. Perhaps one of my most memorable experiences was the siege of Kohima in the Manipur hills close to the Assam-Burma border. I was one of a motley force congregated on a wooden hill and completely surrounded by the invading Japanese. We were subjected to bombardment and attack for two weeks until reinforcements eventually broke through and relieved us. Supplies were dropped to us by parachute. On one occasion, in particular, I was very fortunate not to lose my life. We were in the trenches. A senior officer called me away from my position for a few minutes. During that brief period a shell landed in the trench on the spot, which I had just vacated. Two soldiers who had been near to me were killed.

The fore mentioned event took place in 1944, in which year deeper spiritual inclinations seemed to awaken within me. I was never much influenced by Christianity. I had become quite enchanted with Hindu literature and a close friend of mine was a Brahmin. As yet I had not been attracted in any way towards Islam although I did enjoy reading about the lives of the Moghul emperors in Glimpses of World History by Pandit Nehru.

Right up to that time my enjoyment in life was more or less the same as most young men. At sixteen I had become a regular drinker and smoker. Gambling was in my blood. When I was eighteen I had a temporary craze for dancing and, of course, I enjoyed going to the cinema and theatre. Although smoking is not specifically forbidden in Islam and may be considered a lesser vice, it was the hardest of them all for me to overcome. Nevertheless the physical and spiritual benefits gained from discarding that obnoxious habit have been immense.

My unit was camped near Imphal, which was a frontier outpost close to the Burma border. An Ahmadi sergeant who was also serving in my unit concluded, for reasons best known to himself, that I might be a person to whom he could introduce the message of Islam. His name was Abdul Rahman Dehlvi. There were also a number of other Britishers attached to the same unit, but as far as I know, he never approached any of them. Naturally he had to exercise diplomacy in view of the fact that I was commissioned officer with whom it would not be normal to discuss or propagate freely his religion. He arranged for a copy of the ‘Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam‘ by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be sent to me from Qadian.

My senses were exceedingly dull in those days and for this reason I found much of its contents hard to comprehend. Nevertheless parts of it inspired me and uplifted my spirits. Later on I deliberately left it on the reading table in the officers’ mess but I do not think anybody paid much attention to it. That was more than thirty-five years ago, during which time I have read it thirty to forty times and, like the hopeful batsman, I may score fifty sooner or later.

Two weeks leave were due to me and I was undecided where to go. Sergeant Abdul Rahman Dehlvi urged me to go and stay with one of his friends in Qadian, which was quite an unknown place to me and involved a long journey of approximately a thousand miles. A couple of days later I told him that I decided not to go. My pronouncement brought such a look of disappointment on his face that, merely out of sympathy for him, I immediately reversed my decision and promised to go for a few days.

Imphal lay about eighty miles from the nearest railway link at a jungle base called Manipur. The two places were connected by a long winding road that snaked up and down and round about a succession of jungle-clad hills. This was the first stage of my journey. It took me at least a week to reach Qadian, which I then came to know, was a small isolated town. Nobody was on the station to receive me as no one had been intimated the time of my arrival. I hired a horse vehicle and asked the driver to take me to the house of Mufti Mohammed Sadiq, which was the name of the person, with whom I was supposed to stay. I was jogged along a bumpy road and then through some narrow streets until the driver stopped by a door in a wall inside of which, some steps led to another door on the level of a roof courtyard. I knocked on the upper door. A chain jangled inside and the door was opened by a white bearded elderly gentleman stripped bare to the waist, no doubt on account of the hot weather. He was Mufti Sadiq. Both of us were surprised to see one another. I introduced myself and forthwith Mufti Sadiq instructed the horse vehicle to take me to the guesthouse, where I was accommodated in a sparsely furnished whitewashed room. Shortly afterward Mufti Sadiq came around to meet me. This time he was dressed in flowing robes and wore a magnificent headdress. Later I came to know that he was a companion of the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmed, and also had been the first missionary to the United States of America.

Next day Mufti Sadiq escorted me around Qadian drawing my attention to various places of interest. I remember asking him on that occasion, what was the attitude of the Jama’at towards smoking? He replied, while it was not specifically forbidden, it was discouraged.

The highlight of my two-day visit was an audience with Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad, the Khalifa and the supreme head of the Jama’at Ahmadiyya. This was a memorable event, although at that time I did not fully appreciate the significance of his spiritual status. He was seated on a chair on the verandah of his house. I do not remember the details of our conversation, though I do remember expressing my view that it was sufficient to follow the Ten Commandments in order to live a good life. His answer was to the effect that they were only some general principles which needed further clarification, such as the commandment ‘Thou shalt not kill’.

I was impressed most of all by his luminous countenance, which radiated an intangible spiritual light, which seemed to shine from his face and when he spoke, a charming smile animated his face. He was an embodiment of energetic repose, radiating physical, intellectual and spiritual magnetism, which captivated all within his presence. I realized that I was in the company of no ordinary person.

Generally I was impressed by everyone I met. This was what attracted me towards Islam more than anything else. My knowledge of Islam at that time was negligible, but I reasoned, that if these people were fruits of the faith, then it certainly had something to offer. I was in search of the truth and later I was to realize that I had found it in Qadian.

A notable event took place in my life in the evening after my departure. I was waiting on the station at Amritsar which is a town about thirty miles from Qadian. While waiting for my connection, I joined some other officers for drinks in the refreshment room. I was suddenly overcome with a feeling of aversion. The atmosphere seemed repulsive compared with the holy atmosphere of Qadian. There and then I resolved to forsake drinking once and for all. One of the first things I did when I rejoined my unit on the Burma front was to throw away all the bottles of alcohol I had in my possession.

The army was now on the offensive pushing deeper and deeper into Burma. The Japanese were in retreat and we reached a small town called Meiktilla. It was there that I made my decision to join Ahmadiyyat, the true Islam. I signed the Bai’at form and posted it to Qadian. That was, no doubt, the greatest step I had ever taken in my life.

I have already mentioned that I was shackled to both these vices (drinking and gambling).  Even on my historical visit to Qadian I carried a bottle of whisky and a bottle of rum in my luggage. Fortunately some higher power or my better judgment prevented me from taking drinks while I was there, although at that time, I did not consider drinking to be wrong in any way. I used to gamble on horses, greyhounds, dice and card games. Once when stationed at Imphal I lost a month’s pay gambling on cards with officers. These were the first two evils from which Islam rescued me.

Prior to my acceptance of Ahmadiyyat, I used to contribute nothing in the way of God or towards charity. Islam taught me the philosophy of giving in the way of Allah. Sacrificing what one loves for the sake of Allah wins the pleasure of Allah and earns one abundant reward. I commenced by paying one sixteenth of my income and later increased it to one tenth (Al-Wassiyat). Finally in 1967, I commenced paying one third and have been doing so ever since. Despite the fact that I enjoy only a meagre income, life is good to me in every respect. In addition to Zaka’at, I also regularly give Tahrik-i-Jadid and Ansar contributions, plus payments towards my Jubilee Fund promise and various other appeals.

Ahmadiyyat introduced into my life the regular observance of daily prayer which have proved a source of great blessing and comfort to me, testifying to the truth of the verse in the Holy Quran:

It is only in the remembrance of Allah that hearts can find comfort. (13:29)

I am still novice in the art of prayer. Prayer is more than a routine habit. I have gained much on the subject from the writings and discourses of the Promised Messiah may peace be upon him. They have been a source of inspiration to me.

Sometimes it is a matter of wonder to me how any Muslim, who is attached to Islam with a sincere heart, can intentionally fail to offer the prescribed prayers as commanded by Allah. Once when I was in Qadian shortly after my acceptance of Islam, an announcement by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II appeared on a board outside Masjid-i-Mubarak, stating that if anyone during a period of ten years, knowingly and deliberately forsook even one prayer of the day, then he could not count himself as a true Ahmadi.

Everybody dreams. It is a normal function of the body. Investigators have ascertained that even animals dream. Since time immemorial, God has revealed Himself through the medium of dreams. The Holy Qur’an and earlier scriptures abound with incidents of people to whom God communicated knowledge, messages and future events through dreams. I do not recall the details of any dream before the time I accepted Ahmadiyyat. Since then, however, I have had many dreams, which I have never forgotten. Throughout the years they have remained with me as fresh and clear as at the time I received them.

I had no goals or ambition in life before I accepted Ahmadiyyat. I had no plans for the future. During the war I was a soldier due to compulsory service. I was more or less drifting through life like a capsized boat in the open sea. Yet when I was a very young child I was once gripped by a powerful yearning, which occurred one night when I was bed. I wanted to become and do something extraordinary. I did not want to pass through life being just one of the crowd. I wanted to be unique in one way or another. At that time I am sure I was not more than ten years of age at the most. I do not recall ever thinking or dwelling on the matter again. It was just like a flash of the moment, which never re-occurred but must have taken root in my subconscious mind from where later it was to emerge into reality. It would appear that this was brought about through my acceptance of Ahmadiyyat as the following events may suggest.

When the world war ended in 1945, I returned to England and was immediately demobilised. I went straight to my mother in Bristol where I stayed for a couple of days. I then travelled to London in search of the London Mosque where I introduced myself to the Imam Maulana J.D. Shams. I expressed my desire to work with the mission and also dedicate my life completely to the service of Islam. This event has been described by Maulana Shams:

After his release from the army, when he arrived in England, he stayed for two days only at Bristol with his relatives and so, on the third day, he was at the mosque in London. During his conversation with me he expressed his willingness to live at the mosque and become a Muslim missionary. I explained to him the responsibilities of a missionary and the required qualifications for missionary work. Eventually I promised him to see to his case sympathetically for missionary work and would write to him this matter. He was a little bit upset from my reluctance in accepting his offer readily. After a few days he, however, dedicated his life for the service of Islam unconditionally like other waqifeen. I sent his application to Hazrat Amir-ul-Momineen, with my opinion that he might be a useful missionary. I asked him to come and stay with us and to begin the study of Islam. Hazrat Amir-ul-Momineen graciously accepted his Waqf and Mr. Orchard began to work with other missionaries.
Review Of Religions, June 1947

Allah works in mysterious ways. He willed that this insignificant individual should become the first European Ahmadi Muslim missionary. This was, indeed, a singular favour, which Allah bestowed upon me. The following words of counsel were delivered to me by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II:

At this time you are unknown, no doubt, and unheard of, but soon the time is coming when nations will feel proud of you and sing your praises. So mind, you do not take lightly what you say and what you do. Do not think that your movements are only personal, no, but they pertain to the whole British nation. The posterity will imitate your movements and follow them to the letter…if your movements and activities will be in accordance with Islam, and noble and grand, then they will be instrumental in raising the moral tone of your nation, but if they are below the mark and not in strict accordance with Islam, your nation will be the loser, thereby try therefore, to set a noble example for posterity, otherwise God will have another man to fulfill this task. When Ahmadiyyat will have spread all over the world, and spread it must, no power on earth can impede its destined progress, then there will be reverence for you in the hearts of the people, greater, than the one which they have for the greatest of the Prime Ministers.
Review of Religions, June 1947

Maulana-Bashir-Orchard-with-Hazrat-Khalifat-ul-Masih-IV

Maulana Bashir Orchard with Hazrat Khalifat ul Masih IV meeting Mr Montgomery Watt

I close this short review of my life with gratitude to Allah for his blessings and favours and with the declarations that all praise is due to Allah the Lord of all the worlds.

Mr Bashir Orchard served as a missionary in England between 1946 and 1952. He was then posted to Trinidad, West Indies from 1953. In 1957, he was recalled to Rabwah for an eight month refresher course, after which he was posted as a missionary to Guyana, South America. In 1966, he was transferred to Glasgow and remained there until 1983, when he was posted to Oxford, England.

In 1987, he was transferred to Islamabad, England, to concentrate on being Editor of a magazine called ‘Review of Religions’.

Mr Orchard has written several articles and books on Islam including ‘Life Supreme‘ and ‘Guideposts‘.

He would always take part in the Charity Walks and was determined to finish the walk, no matter what the distance was.

He passed away in 2002.  May Allah grant him the highest abode in heaven, Amen.

Rare video footage of Qadian in 1947 by Bashir Ahmad Orchard



Intro

Bashir Ahmad Orchard was the first ever Irish-born Ahmadiyya-mullah.  He seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya in the mid-1940’s.  He seems to have had a video camera and has shared footage of Qadian in 1947.

The video

Some comments about this video
1.  Muhammad Zafrullah Khan seems to have the biggest house in Qadian by 1947.

2.  Qadian seems to be simply a 3-mile radius of ‘village-homes”, with a few larger homes, which seem to only include MGA’s home and Zafrullah Khan’s home.

3.  In 1947, Qadian was the only place in the Punjab wherein Muslims were left un-molested as the mass migration shook the entire sub-continent.  Smith reports that Mahmud Ahmad and the majority of the population at Qadian remained present in Qadian, until the British govts. military showed up and forced them to leave.  Smith reports that Mahmud Ahmad was safely transported out of Qadian under military protection.  

When a Sikh looter murdered an Ahmadi in Qadian and during partition

Intro
Dear readers, Ahmadiyya sources are the epitome of “fake news”, they been doing this since 1878, starting with MGA.  Nevertheless, Ahmadiyya sources are silent on Fakhr-uddin Multani and myriad of other topics.  We have found a story from an Ahmadi, his name is Dr. Muhammad Sharif Khan and he wrote a detailed history of this high school and college.  He tells us about the Ti College and how some Ahmadi’s were directed to stay at Qadian and guard it.  This led to an Ahmadi being killed.  Mirza Tahir Ahmad also spoke about his life at Qadian and during partition.  He was barely 20 years old and in the prime of his youth during this time, in his book, “A Man of God”, he speaks about having many guns hidden away.  All of these details are cloudy, we are unsure of what happened.  However, we do know that the Khalifa fled to Lahore from Qadian under military escort, Bashir Ahmad Orchard was part of the caravan.

Dr. Sharif Khan tells us: 
See page 9

“”””In an office order issued on 30th June, 1947, Talim-ul-Islam College was notified by
the principal to remain close for summer recess from 1st July to 27th September, 1947.
Meanwhile partition of the subcontinent, into India and Pakistan, as two sovereign states,
took place on 14th August 1947. So that 30th June, 1947, proved to be the last working
day of the college in Qadian.

Most of the college officials and students migrated to Pakistan, however, few were
directed to stay back, to help protect college equipment from looting and destruction by
the refugees that were pouring into Qadian from surrounding areas. They were also to
supervise safe evacuation process and migration of women and children to Pakistan.
Muhammad Munir Khan Shami, a Talim-ul-Islam College B.Sc. student, who was at
guard duty was martyred by a band of Sikh looters“””

Review of Religions, June 1947 edition, free download

Intro
We have found an old edition of the ROR-english from June of 1947.  This mostly relates to the conversion of Bashir Ahmad Orchard to Ahmadiyya.  This proves that he only joined Ahmadiyya based on the respect that was shown to him.

Who is Dr. Khalifa Rasheed-ud-din?

Intro
His daughter was married to the son of MGA. Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad had 9+ children with the daughter of Dr. Khalifa Rasheed-ud-Din. Incidentally, his other daughter was married to a non-Ahmadi Muslim in Qadian and on the same day (in 1902).  Nevertheless, this other daughters children seem to have been eventually married into Ahmadi’s.  One of her daughters was married off to Bashir Ahmad Orchard, the first English-Ahmadi-imam.  They had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls.  We are not sure about her other children and where they went.  He was a MBBS physician.

1896
He is mentioned as part of the first 313 Ahmadi’s list.

1902
His daughter is married to the son of MGA, Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad, she is barely 10 years old.

1906
He is made a member of the Sadr Anjuman.

1908—When MGA died
He wrote an article on 24 May 1908, two days before the death of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, which was published in the Ahmadiyya newspaper Badr shortly after Hazrat Mirza’s death in its issue dated 11 June 1908 on the front page and page 2.  Go here to view scanned images of the entire article from Badr.

When the Khalifa died in 1914
It so happened that looking in the issues of the Urdu edition of the Review of Religions, I found that every issue contains at the end accounts of the income and expenditure of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya for the previous month. Looking at some issues prior to the Split, I noticed that the accounts are signed off by the muhasib (accountant or auditor) whose name is given as Khalifa Rashid-udDin. This gentleman was father-in-law of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, and after the Split he was in the Qadiani Jamaat. So here we find a prominent Qadiani keeping an eye on the accounts of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya even long before the Split!

The April 1914 issue does not present the accounts for March 1914, but the May 1914 issue (under control of the Qadiani Jamaat) presents accounts for both March 1914 and April 1914. I have extracted pages 193-194 and 195-196 of that issue showing these accounts for March and April. See this link.

The monthly accounts carry several headings such as education, the poor, school, propagation of Islam, etc. Under these headings there is a figure for the total of funds carried forward from the previous month (sabiqa baqaya), and then, after income and expenditure, the remaining total for the current month (baqaya).

In the end of March accounts I have marked in red all the baqaya entries, which are eight in all. In the end of April accounts I have marked in red all the eight sabiqa baqaya entries, i.e. the totals carried forward from end of March accounts to end of April accounts.

As far as I can see, each of these totals as it was at the end of March 1914, when Maulana Muhammad Ali was in Qadian, is exactly the same as the corresponding “carried forward” total at the end of April, by which time Maulana Muhammad Ali had left Qadian and these funds were in the hands of the Qadiani Jamaat!

This, if I am right, is absolute and positive proof, coming from a Qadiani Jamaat publication, that all the funds of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya remained with the Qadiani Jamaat after Maulana Muhammad Ali left Qadian, and he took nothing.

Before he died, he became inactive in the Qadiani-Jamaat
It is said, from Lahori-Ahmadi’s that I know, that he eventually left the Qadiani Jamaat and moved to Lahore and re-started his medical practice. He did not turn against QK2, as his daughter was married to him, but became inactive in Qadiani Jamaat. He did not join Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement.

Who is Dr. Mirza Munawar Ahmad?

Intro
Mirza Munawar Ahmad (1918–1990) was the 3rd eldest child of Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad.  He was the first grandchild of MGA to become a qualified doctor.  Bashir Ahmad Orchard, the first ever Irish-Ahmadi-imam seems to have written his life story in the Review of Religions of December–1990 (see pages 39-40).  He married his first cousin, Mahmooda Begum, daughter of Nawab Muhammad Ali in 1940.

The copy and paste job
“”””The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam mourns the death of one of its illustrious sons, Dr Munawwar Ahmad, who passed away in Rabwah, Pakistan on the 19th September, 1990, at the age of seventy-two. He was the grandson of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement. He was also the third son of Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, second successor of the Promised messiah, and his spouse Umme Nasir.

Dr Munawwar Ahmad was born in Qadian, India, on the 1st of February, 1918.  In 1940 he married Mahmooda Begum, daughter of Nawab Muhammad Ali. He studied medicine at the King Edward Medical College, Lahore and had the distinction of being the first doctor in the family of the Promised Messiah. After graduation he was medical demonstrator at Glansay Medical College, Amritsar, and from 1945-1947 he worked at the Nur Hospital, Qadian. Later, after the partition of the Indian sub-continent, he played a large part in building the Fazl-e-Omer Hospital in Rabwah, Pakistan, and was its chief medical officer from 1955-1983.  Now the post is held by his son, Dr. Mubashar Ahmad.

Dr Munawwar Ahmad was particularly concerned for the medical care of the poor and he organised a system for providing them with free treatment and medicine at the hospital. He always prayed for his patients and considered that trusting in medicine alone was tantamount to the setting up of an equal with God. He was the personal physician to both the second and third successors of the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad and Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad respectively.  In 1955 He accompanied Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad to Europe where he went for treatment following a dastardly attack on his life when he received a deep and dangerous stab wound in the neck.

As I have mentioned he was a very prayerful person and was regular in attending congregational prayers in the mosque. He did not allow climatic and weather conditions to prevent him from going to the mosque. He would offer long prayers with full and earnest attention. He was also very loyal, respectful and obedient to the Khalifa of the time.

In addition to his medical duties which required much of his time and attention, he was also engaged in other activities of the Community. He was the Vice-President of the Central Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Association which attended to the spiritual and all round training of the male members of the Community between the ages of fifteen and forty. He held this office from 1950-1956. Later he became the Vice-President of the Central Ansarullah Association which attends to similar needs for male members over the age of forty. He also served on various other committees.

I first had the pleasure of meeting him in one of the narrow thoroughfares of Qadian during one of my early visits to that holy place either in 1945 or 1946. At that time I was unaware who he was nor do I remember what words may have passed between us. What I do remember, however, was the bright and smiling countenance with which he greeted me and which was always a permanent feature in his appearance.  The last time I met him was at his home in Rabwah, Pakistan, when my wife and I paid him a surprise visit during our short ten day stay there in 1989. He welcomed us in a most gracious, cheerful and amiable manner. He was suffering from several ailments which he nobly concealed under cover of his pleasant and happy demeanour.

Dr Munawwar Ahmad has progeny of four sons and one daughter, Amatul Hayee, who is married to Dr Hamidullah Khan of Batley, Yorkshire, U.K. In addition he has been blessed with fourteen grand children. May God bless and elevate his soul in paradise. Amin. “”””

In 1961, he diagnosed his father and had attended to him once he was stabbed
In 1954, the Khalifa was stabbed, his son attended to him and later on told the world:

“””Nervous prostrations like the loss of memory, and emotional outbursts (like at the mention of holy names, places and events), are more or less prevalent. Some days the symptoms dwindle, but again they intensify : and so the trouble goes on. Because of remaining in prostrate position, there is tension followed by numbness in the leg muscles. All the possible efforts to make his holiness walk a litter, have failed all along…..”

Diagnosis by Mirza Munawar Ahmad (son of Mahmud Ahmad).

Ibrahim Noonan explains how he chased many women..then found Ahmadiyya

Intro
The Ahmadi-imam, Ibrahim Noonan is a terrible person.  He has been ordered to terrorize people on the internet, and in real life.  All of his activities are controlled by the Mirza family, they own Ahmadiyya INC.  Why are we writing this?  We have had dialogue with Noonan for a few years, Noonan is obviously a token Irish-Ahmadi, in other words, Ahmadiyya INC needed a local Irishman as a Mullah so that they could properly spread their business in Ireland with a local white spokesman.  Ahmadiyya does this in every country.  Or they try.  Nonetheless, as the essay in the below will prove, Noonan is a miscreant, who was only made a Mullah by the Mirza family, he isn’t qualified, he isn’t properly trained and one last thing, he is an idiot of epic proportions who terrorizes people on the internet, in fact, he has ordered ahmadi’s to cyber attack a fellow Irishman, watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfBzwWPROIg

The story is as follows
Michael Dennis Peter Noonan aka Ibrahim Noonan was a lazy fellow his entire life.  He never did any type of manual labor.  When he was 18, he was sent off to the London area to pursue college studies.  Noonan was a devout Catholic type of Christian, his parents wanted him to become a Catholic priest.  Thus, Noonan claims that in college he was studying theology, aka religious studies.

Did Noonan graduate from College?  
It’s unclear if he ever graduated.  It’s highly unlikely, we are sure that Noonan dropped out of college and began working in night clubs.  He was either a bartender or a dancer.  However, Noonan claims that he was a bouncer (security) and claims to have worked as such for 7 years.  We have to assume this was from age 18-25.  Noonan lies all the time, he claims to know Greek and Arabic, which is a total lie.  He may be able to pronounce a few words or read a few words but he is not fluent in any of those languages, in fact, his english is terrible.

He claims to have worked at a club called Hippedrom.  Then he contradicts his story, he claims to have been a bouncer in Ireland before England.  We know he never went to college and was just hanging around bars, chasing women and drinking Irish beer.

Noonan loved fighting, just like all raging drunk Irishmen
This is a snapshot into the type of man Noonan really is.  He is an average Irishman.  They love fighting, drinking beer smoking cigarettes, and chasing women.  Noonan was exactly like that, however, he lied about the drinking and smoking (he denied it in the video).

By age 25, Mr. Noonan was a lazy good for nothing
Noonan goes on to say that he finished his studies, and then began travelling the world (North Africa) with girls and thus committing adultery.  In fact, Noonan admits to committing adultery for over 10-20 years and totally living in this condition.  He then says that as he was committing adultery, he felt bad and thought it was immoral.

The real story is that Noonan met an Ahmadi girl and got her pregnant
We have inside sources that tell us that at this point in Noonan’s life, he met an Ahmadi girl and began having adultery with her.  He got her pregnant and then was forced to marry her.  She introduced Noonan to Ahmadiyya.  The story that Noonan gives is a total lie.  In fact, many years ago, we encountered Noonan’s eldest son from his first marriage on (via twitter) and he confirmed all of this.

Noonan claims that he became Ahmadi after reading Jesus in India and just 2 other books
This is the proof that Noonan is an idiot, firstly, he should have done a better investigation, secondly, he lied, he only joined for a girl and her behalf.

New data found on Noonan’s first Ahmadi wife

We found ^^^^^ those references from here
http://www.socialaffairsunit.org.uk/blog/archives/000945.php

The Ahmadi girl complained that Noonan was a lazy good for thing
The Ahmadiyya Jamaat in the UK heard about Noonan’s fake conversion to Ahmadiyya.  The local Ahmadiyya jamaat was excited that they had finally gained an Irish-white-Ahmadi.  In fact, the famous Bashir Ahmad Orchard was the first Irishman to join Ahmadiyya and he was still alive in those early days (92–96) when Noonan had just converted to Ahmadiyya.  Ahmadiyya INC hadn’t got many other Irish-white converts to Ahmadiyya and were excited showing off Noonan to the world and etc.  Noonan was thus being treated like a God by the Pakistani Ahmadi’s.  They immediately told the vicious Mirza Tahir Ahmad about Noonan.  In the meantime, Bashir Ahmad Orchard died and Ahmadiyya INC needed another local Imam to further its business practices in Ireland.  Also, in the same time frame, Noonan’s wife was tired of Noonan being lazy and just hanging around the house.  They eventually divorced.  Mirza Tahir Ahmad then told Noonan that he would personally get him a new Ahmadi wife and would even give him a job, as an Ahmadi mullah.  The rest is history.

The non-Pakistani-Ahmadi-clerics were barely taught any Arabic by Ahmadiyya INC

Intro
We have written about this before.  Most Ahmadi clerics don’t understand Islam properly, they are brainwashed by an unaccredited institution, i.e. Jamia-Ahmadia.  Jamia Ahmadia passes whomever they wish, and they fail whomever they wish.  In a recent case, they gave full “imam” status to Ibrahim Noonan, who was a convert to Ahmadiyya about 20 years ago through a woman whom he eventually married and later divorced.  He hasn’t properly understood Islam and has terrible manners, he is basically a security guard who couldn’t find a job and turned to Ahmadiyya for employment.  Mirza Tahir Ahmad hired him immediately, since, Ahmadiyya INC needed an Irish Imam, since Bashir Ahmad Orchard had died in the 1980’s.  Ahmadiyya INC always looks to find a local in any country and promote him to Imam, this gives Ahmadiyya INC a local with whom they can better negotiate with local politicians.

The quote
“””Many of the foreign students did not finish the entire curriculum, but they were dispatched as foreign missionaries to their respective homelands. The Second Khalifah ra acknowledged
this in my case and stated that, at my age, I would require more than 8 years to master the Arabic language, let alone the 8 years to complete the standard Jami‘ah missionary program.

The process at that time was that once a student was ready for their missionary work, they were determined to be either domestic or foreign missionaries. Domestic missionaries reported to the Sadr Anjuman and foreign missionaries reported to the Wakil-e-Tabshir of the Tehrik-e-Jadid Office. I was the latter and my salary of 50 rupees per month was paid out of the Tehrik-e-Jadid Office.  In fact, none of the foreign missionaries during my enrollment in Jami‘ah completed the full Jami‘ah program, including Kunze, who was a German already enrolled, but left at the same time I did.

There are several examples of outstanding missionaries who similarly did not complete the formal Jami‘ah course such as Bashir Orchard of Glasgow.””””
