Ahmadi’s are trained to lie and exaggerate. They learned it from MGA. As Ahmadiyya propoganda spread via the British government during WW-2, Ahmadiyya maulvi’s were under intense pressure from the Mirza family to get converts. Thus, they lied about converts many times, they published many news reports claiming that European women/men and American’s had joined Ahmadiyya, they even lied about Russell Webb and his conversion to Ahmadiyya. The list is endless. Nevertheless, today we found the case of Anthony George Baker. See his wikipedia entry herein. Interestingly, he refused to sign Bait in 1916 and died in 1918, nevertheless, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq still listed him as an Ahmadi convert. John Webster is another fake convert that they were presenting. Professor Clement Lindley Wragge is yet another fake-Ahmadi convert.
George Baker’s earliest known connection with American Muslim converts was in August 1893 when Alexander Russell Webb, another early American convert to Islam, published a section of a work by Baker concerning the relationship between medieval Christians and Muslims in Jerusalem in his newspaper the Moslem World.According to author Patrick D. Bowen, Baker was in contact with Webb and may have ran his Oriental Publishing Company from a Philadelphia post office in 1892 and 1894. He was known for his lectures on Islam in Philadelphia and may also have been secretly associated with a group of about twenty Muslim converts in the city during this period. Baker’s Muslim contacts outside the United States included the English convert Abdullah Quilliam and in January 1896 he explicitly identified as a Muslim in a letter to Quilliam’s newspaper The Crescent.

Baker also had connections with the Ahmadiyya movement in India through the movement’s English-language journal, The Review of Religions, with which Webb had also corresponded. His contact with the movement began in 1904 and was the result of his writings having found their way to India and coming to the attention of Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, a disciple of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Baker was among a number of European and American figures with whom Sadiq had established contact during Ghulam Ahmad’s lifetime
In Oct. of 1908, BA5 was published, Dr. Baker is mentioned as someone who has admired the work of MGA, see page 132, online english edition.
In the August edition of the english ROR, the full text of a speech by Dr. Baker is published by the Ahmadiyya jamaat. At the bottom of the speech, he mentions MGA in good words, however, he never did any bait at that time.
He refuses to sign bait at the hand of the new Khalifa, nor did he ever sign before. He writes:
“””As for the form of initiation into the Ahmadiyya Movement, I am with you heart and soul, although I can not at present sign it. There are a few obstacles in the way which may be removed later on. I am as true a Musselman as any, and read the Qur’an and traditions, and believe them and do as required.”””(See “The Ahmadiyya Mission News, America,” The Review of Religions, March 1916, 154).
Dr Baker died after a short and sudden bout of pneumonia at the age of 69 on 17th February 1918.
Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is in America and realizes that Dr. Baker is dead, he makes him a convert to Ahmadiyya anways (See Al-Fazl, July 22, 1920 and “Ahmadiyya Mission News, America,” The Review of Religions, July 1920, 246).
On 20th October, 2018, before departing the city of Philadelphia, Mirza Masroor Ahmad the worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, made a brief stop at the historic Laurel Hill Cemetery. There, at almost a 100-year-old grave, he prayed at his grave.
