So, I have been called names for calling the Qadiani branch of the Ahmadiyya religion as a cult run by the Mirza Family for their personal financial gain.
In 2010, we exposed their secret web of companies and charities and how they were funneling away money in property investments. The Charities Commission looked the other way. We showed how Mirza Masroor Ahmad(below) re-organized the corporate structure in 2003 to be under the control of his trusted family and friends, while not having his own name on a single organization.
We said then that when the cult implodes, the family may run away with their property investments. The time may have come for them to hide their wealth even further. And this wealth is not through business. It is by forcing poor people — benefits recipients — to cough up 5–10% of their income on penalty of ostracization. Just as the Internet has laid bare the theological fraud of the Mirza family, today it lays bare the rest of their secret web of offshore companies and accounts due to the Panama papers.
Flow of Money
Money flows as charitable donations from ‘have’ countries like U.S.,. Canada, Pakistan, Germany and U.K. into AMJ International from where it is distributed into dubious projects around the world. The accounting in each country is kept up to date, but money gets lost in international transactions.
The actual work of the organization is carried out through just one charity — Al-Shirkatul-Islamiyyah, and curiously, its income and expenses almost balance every year.
Since Mirza Masroor Ahmad came to power, he has focused on investing in properties and totally unrelated to the goals of the organization. We see from the Panama Papers that the businesses are involved mostly in property investment.
In 2010, we wondered who had a mortgage on an Ahmadiyya property on Deer Park Drive; the only substantial building that is not a place of worship and the mortgage of which is always renewed after a few years. The company was known as T.J. Holdings and nothing was known of it. It is now located in the Panama Papers:
T.J.HOLDINGS S.A.,T.J.HOLDINGS S.A.,,PMA,Panama,,A B ARSHAD
Abul Baqi Arshad
This person is about 81 years old, a friend and confidant of Mirza Masroor Ahmad, and the current and former director of up to 23 companies in their visible charities’ web in the U.K. Here are some of his other offshore companies revealed in the Panama Papers Leak, some of which replaced others, and almost all since 2003, when his friend took reigns of the cult:
Lombard Invest Limited
JAFAH ENTERPRISES INC.
MAHA INTERNATIONAL INC
ASLAM CORPORATION S.A.
ASIFA HOLDINGS S.A. (named after wife of Mirza Tahir Ahmad)
NUSRAT INVESTMENTS INC. (named after great-grandmother of Mirza Masroor Ahmad)
QADIR ENTERPRISES INC.
FAZAL ENTERPRISES INC.
SLAMAT HOLDINGS S.A.
SIND HOLDINGS S.A.
ALHAMAD HOLDINGS S.A.
CASCA HOLDINGS S.A.
SUMMIT PROPERTIES INC.
SALAMAT ENTERPRISES INC.
BILAL INVESTMENTS INC.
Other Companies and Possible Structure
There are other companies with links directly to the Qadiani Ahmadiyya town of Chanab Nagar in Pakistan but we are still researching the ownership links which will eventually be found to be traced to the Mirza Family.
It appears that the offshore companies are organized as trust funds along the family branches and provide income to various parts of the vast Mirza family — not unlike a royal family renowned for idleness and extravagance.
What Story and Two Questions?
It is unclear how the Mirza Family and their minions will spin this revelation and how they will dupe their followers into giving them even more money.
Question 1: What is the need to hide money in so many offshore companies? Question 2: Where did the money come from and who controls it?
For those shrill Qadiani Ahmadiyya bloggers always shrieking at ‘mullahs’, here is your mullah for you. Illiterate, unaware of theology, can barely speak in public, full of gaffes and hoarding your money for his family.
And yet, to you, he is God’s representative on earth. I actually feel so sorry for you and wish you would wake up to the exploitation. If there was any time to do so, this is it.
Bilal Rana’s speech
Bilal Rana was the President of Majlis Khuddam-ul Ahmadiyya (MKA) for a long time, nowadays, he seems to have reached above the age of 40, and thus removed from MKA. He recently gave an arrogant and haughty speech at the 2019 USA-Jalsa, he bragged about how his father gave him a car to start his life, however, the average american never got anything from their parents. In this speech he presented a long list of seemingly large issues the community is going through. Namely, the number of jammat members not paying their Chanda (roughly 67%). The number of youth marrying out of the community (he stated one city where 71% of the children have married out of the community) and the increasing divorce rate (22%). He also noted that a large number of youth are using drugs and alcohol. A number of these arguments I can appreciate for a religous organization (Chanda, substance use, pardah etc.). Where he loses me in the argument is his strong advocacy against marrying outside of the community. He basically says that there are too many people “fake” converting for the sake of marriage or marrying out of the community and now many young women are left single and unmarried.
July 1986, from the ROR
The Situation in Pakistan (Sheikh IMasir Ahmad) In its 38th session the Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities passed resolution L.42 concerning the “Situation in Pakistan” with special reference to the persecution of members of the Ahmadiyya Community in that country. The Sub-Commission requested the Commission on Human Pvights: “to call on the Government of Pakistan to repeal Ordinance XX and to restore the human rights and fundamental freedoms of all persons in its jurisdiction”. The resolution further alerted the Commission on Human Rights: “of the situation in Pakistan which is one with great potential to cause a mass exodus, especially of members of the Ahmadi community”. That resolution was passed on 29th August, 1985, more than 16 months after the promulgation of the said Ordinance by the military ruler of Pakistan, General Zia. During that period, Ahmadis in Pakistan had suffered a most severe form of religious persecution, involving physical and mental agony the like of which was difficult’to Grid in the preceding 38 years of the existence of the country. Ahmadis and their spiritual leaders were reviled at in the basest manner, their members arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to jail for the mere “crime” of professing their faith and on other phoney allegations. Further, their houses had been burrit down, their businesses ruined, their places of worship desecrated, their religious books defiled and proscribed, and a number of .their prominent members ruthlessly killed in cold-blood, without as much as a single murderer having ever been apprehended by the authorities. More often than not, the victims themselves were arrested by the “keepers of law” for “disturbing the peace”. Fanatic mullahs enjoyed full liberty under the protective umbrella of the martial Ordinance to make provocative speeches against Ahmadis, often in public meetings especially convened in Ahmadiyya headquarters which were attended by “imported” miscreants. The government controlled mass media were directed at lashing out abuse and 40 REVIEW OF RELIGIONS invectives at the holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement. Not satisfied with the doings of others, the military ruler took personal charge of the mud-slinging campaign taking the unusual and highly questionable step of sending a message to an anti-Ahmadiyya conference in London, in which he made the following remarkable statement ever to be made by a head of state: “We will persevere in our efforts to ensure that the cancer of Ahmadiyyat is exterminated.” These were no doubt harsh words, particularly as they carried the authority of a head of state who was blatantly announcing to the world his plans to exterminate a section of his own citizens, the protection of whose lives, property and honour should have been his main concern. These words of General Zia shocked the community of civilised nations. At that very time, the Sub-Commission was in session in Geneva, and the Experts of the Sub-Commission on Human Rights took due notice of this incredible statement. Their reaction was reflected in resolution L.42 of 29th August, 1985, passed with overwhelming majority, calling for the repeal of Ordinance XX. The voting was 83.5 per cent in favour and a mere 16.5 per cent against. Four months after that resolution of the Sub-Commission, martial law was lifted in Pakistan. But — in practice — not for Ahmadi Muslims. Before he lifted martial law, General Zia had cleverly managed to get through the National Assembly of Pakistan yet another questionable resolution legalising his actions during the military regime lasting a period of over 8l/2 years. “Through this ‘ingenuity’, the anti-Ahmadiyya Ordinance of 26 April 1984, which had robbed Ahmadis of their basic human rights and denied them the freedom of religion, and had legalised their persecution on religious grounds, was made a part of the Constitution of Pakistan.” In other words, things became even worse for Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan – even when on the face of it martial law was lifted. The need to listen to the Experts of the Sub-Commission became all the more urgent. And this is the point where the Commission on Human Rights comes in. The meritorious and arduous work of the esteemed members of the Sub-Commission should not be allowed to go to waste. It should be appreciated and taken due notice of by all those concerned with the upholding and defence of human rights. Otherwise, dictators in civilian garbs will continue to flout with impunity international law and trample under foot the most fundamental human rights. If evidence was needed to show that even after the lifting of martial law, real power would still be lying there where it rested during the military regime, it was provided by the “civilian” Prime Minister, selected and appointed by the military head of state, Zia. Prime Minister Junejo let the cat out of the bag by declaring in a nation-wide televised speech, shortly before THE SITUATION IN PAKISTAN 41 the termination of martial law, that the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement was a liar and an impostor. He announced further that: “the government had taken stringent measures in Pakistan to tackle this problem” (i.e. extermination of Ahmadiyya). Under these circumstances, life, property and honour of the Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan is highly endangered. They can be sent to jail for three years if they profess, practise or propagate their faith, or if they call their members to prayers, or if they pose in any manner, whatsoever, which shows their adherence to their faith — which they regard to be Islam. Basic rights, enshrined in the Universal Declaration on Human Rights and in the United Nations Charter, are dubbed as “crimes” in the case of Ahmadis in Pakistan. Does not this state of affairs sound an alarm in the forum of conscience of all nations of the world? Certainly, the UN cannot afford to take it lying down that a signatory member of this world organisation has chosen to enact a law under which the cherished basic freedoms of conscience and belief have been turned into so many “crimes”. The Ordinance, now made into law, is woefully reminiscent of the Dark Ages. It contravenes all norms of international decency and boldly cuts at the very roots of all international conventions which guarantee man his basic rights. There can be no justification for this sort of discrimination against a segment of the citizens of a country. The world is being given to believe that since martial law has ended, things have returned to normal. Far from it. As far as basic human rights of Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan are concerned, martial law has been lifted only in name. The “civilian” Prime Minister Junejo, installed by his military master, proves the point by his statement. Finally, it lies in the nature of things that a government accused of violations of human rights will always seek to defend its actions. It is vain to expect a representative of such a government to stand before this esteemed house, in sack-cloth and ashes, and to have the courage of his conviction to admit that his government was for once guilty. In the present case, too, we cannot expect anything different. The least the Human Rights Commission could do, and should do, is to take a hard look at the grave situation in Pakistan and institute an independent inquiry and thus unearth the truth. Otherwise there will be no other option left but to accept as truth what the government of Pakistan is saying to explain away its actions. The vast voting majority of the members of the Sub- Commission does deserve an ear. They certainly have a case. The REVIEW of RELIGIONS The Review of Religions is the oldest magazine of its kind published in the English language in the Indo-Pakistan Sub-Continent. Its first issue was published in 1902 and it has been continuously published since. It bears the distinction that it was initiated under the direction of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah himself. During more than eighty-one years the message of Islam has been conveyed through this magazine to hundreds of readers and many fortunate persons have recognised the truth of Islam and accepted it through studying it. The articles published in it deal not only with the doctrines and teachings of Islam but also set forth a comparative appreciation of the teachings of other faiths. One of its outstanding features is the refutations of the criticism of Islamic teachings by orientalists and non-muslim scholars. It also presents solutions in the light of Islamic teachings of the problems with which the Islamic world is from time to time confronted. A study of this magazine is indispensable for the appreciation of the doctrines of the Ahmadiyya Movement and the teachings of its holy Founder.

Mian Shamshuddin was disabled and so poor so that he lived his entire life in a 3’x3′ room and only ate if someone would remember to send him some food. Mian Shamshuddin had been a moosi since 1919, but had begun payments for his wasiyyat since 1901 – presumably his birth year. The Jamaat official went on to discover that despite his meager means, Mian Shamshuddin Sahib had paid his wasiyyat through 1990. This was an exemplary feat, but its grandeur became even harder to comprehend when the Jamaat official learned that Mian Shamshuddin Sahib had passed away in 1950; i.e. Mian Shamshuddin Sahib had forgone his own sustenance and focused so much on paying his chanda that he paid chanda wasiyyat for 40 years after his death.

A QUOTE “there is evidence that Ahmadis are over-represented in the civilian bureaucracy. An examination of Table 2 reveals that Ahmadis are over-represented in the bureaucracy by a factor of three to eight times their proportional population base.“
An explanation of this data Prior to the constitutional amendments in 1974, Ahmadis had systematically gained posts in high ranking position through corruption and nepotism within the Pakistani politics. Zafarullah Khan and Abdus Salam in a coordinated attempt systematically favored Ahmadis and brought them in high positions in order to bring Pakistan under the control of Ahmadis. Their share in official positions within the Pakistani bureaucracy was much higher than their share in the population of Pakistan. Zafarullah Khan was just one example. As Ahmadis have sworn to follow their leader in all matters of life, those Ahmadi officials were loyal towards their Khalifa leader and not towards the constitution of Pakistan or their fellow Pakistani citizens. Most notably Zafarullah Khan even refused to pray the death funeral of Quaid-e-Azam Baba-i-Qaum Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, as Zafarullah Khan and his Ahmadiyya sect argued, that they did not consider Muhammad Ali Jinnah a Muslim, instead they considered him A Kafir, a Nonbeliever Kufar, as he had not followed the call of the Ahmaidyya founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani. That way Zafarullah Khan impressively demonstrated his loyality to his Ahmadi Khalifa leader above his loyality to the founder of the country he was supposed to serve. This was a monumental slap in the face of Muslims, as they had only recently joined forces and under huge sacrifices gained an independent state for the Muslims of the Indian Subcontinent. And now their own Foreign Minister demonstrated to the eyes of the world, that he didn’t consider the Founder of Pakistan Quaid-e-Azam Baba-i-Qaum Muhammad Ali Jinnah a Muslim and didn’t even deem him worthy to show the respect of his funeral prayer. Christians and Hindus as of 1982 had a Population of about 13 times bigger than Ahmadis. But despite their bigger share in the Population, Christians and Hindus were considerably less likely to be found in the Federal bureaucracy of Pakistan. Ahmadis were twice as much more often to be found in a high ranking Position in the Federal bureaucracy of Pakistan than Hindus, despite Hindus being 13 Times more populous than Ahmadis in Pakistan.
Please note that this data was from 1982. And many didn’t declare their religion in the statistics. It is Obvious that the situation was even worse than the data above suggests and prior to the constitutional ammendments in the 50’s and 60’s, the situation must have been even worse than the 1982 data suggests.
The constitutional amendments main aim was to drive back this unnatural development and limit the Ahmadis possible influence on the Pakistani democracy to their fair share in the population of Pakistan, which is just a fair and democratic principle, especially for a country that was created as a homeland for Muslims and against totalitarian rule by an Absolute Monarch. Ahmadis work against both of these principles. They undermine the Muslim unity, impressively demonstarted by Zafarullah Khan at the time of the funeral of Pakistans founder and implement another Absolute Monarch, who they Call Khalifa and they want to follow.
In a democracy, the majority of people shall have the say and not a small minority who is just better organized and follows an Absolute dictator, they call “Khalifa” and systematically tries to undercut the political system by installing their loyal followers in positions of power within a state. Where that can lead, could be seen recently in Turkey, where the Gülen Sect tried to violently putsch their way to power in Turkey with the help of a few hundred loyalists in the Turkish Police and Army.
