My team and I have found an old edition of the Review of Religions (ROR) from August of 1932. Malik Ghulam Farid was the editor in those days, he went on to write the 5-volume official commentary of the Quran, which can be found here. Malik Ghulam Farid (1897–1977), was a notable Ahmadiyya scholar. He was deputed the task of preparing the 5 Volume The English Commentary of the Holy Quran, in 1942, by Mirza Mahmood Ahmad, the second Khalifa. He published the said Commentary in 1962. Later, in 1969, Malik published the Abridged Edition. Malik Ghulam Farid also produced a Dictionary of the Holy Quran, but it could not be published in his lifetime. He died in 1977.
The essay itself
Ahmadi’s claim that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad wrote this essay and many others, however, that’s a lie, he rarely wrote anything. Just like MGA, he had his resident mullahs write everything, he was simply their figure head. This is another case of exactly that. In fact, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad claims to have written a Tafsir of the Quran, however, that’s a lie, it was really written by his Mullahs.
Important points made in the essay
1—The Ahmadi’s of Kababir are mentioned, it is possible that this is the first time that they were ever mentioned in the literature of Ahmadiyya. Also see here: https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2018/05/10/kababir-an-ahmadiyya-community-in-israel-by-ray-register-1970-hartford-seminary-foundation-thesis-dissertation/
2—The essay is essentially calling Ahmadiyya a new religion, and thus giving examples/criteria of how new religions have historically formed.
3—Qadian is backward province, and thus produced backward ideas.
4—MGA and his movement have always told people to follow their government (colonialism) and to never revolt.
5—MGA and his sons require Ahmadi’s to sacrifice their monies, time and children to the Ahmadiyya Movement.
6—Most Ahmadi’s pay between 10–30% of their earnings to Ahmadiyya aka the Mirza family.
