The story from the Pakistan Times   

“””””””Mr. Arbab Alam, Final year student of the Nishter Medical College, Multan and President of the Students Union of his college, who was injured during the disturbances at Rabwah Railway Station on May 29, stated on Thursday that two of the assailants had revolvers with them.

He was recording his evidence before the Tribunal comprising Mr. Justice K.M.A Samdani, inquiring into the Rabwah incident.

The witness stated that in order to force open a door of a smaller compartment where the students of NMC (Nishter Medical College) had taken refuge, one of the men armed had threatened to fire.  At this stage another man entered the compartment and tapped the shoulder of the man holding the revolver and told him that the time to use weapon had not yet come.

He stated some of the people who had launched the attack on NMC students were armed with hockey sticks, chains, small hammers and whips.  One of them was carrying a sword, he added.

Narrating the incident, Mr. Arbab Alam stated that as soon as the trained stopped, they started hitting the students who were sitting on seats on the platform side of windows with their respective weapons.  They hit the windows of the compartment with small hammers, the witness added.  

“I told the students not to get perturbed and directed them to draw the shutters and close the doors of the compartment.  But they could not go close to the windows because of the attack.  However, they managed to draw the shutters with much difficulty.  But one of the windows got stuck and could not be closed.  Meanwhile the crowd started pelting stones through the half-closed window, the Mob also tried to use lathis (a large bamboo stick) and small hammers through the window.  The students however managed to check the attack by obstructing the half-closed window with holdalls”

In the meantime, Mr. Arbab Alam stated the mob broke open one of the doors and entered the bogie upon which the witness directed other students to move to the rear towards the small compartment of the bogie and close it from the inside.  Hardly the students had moved to the rear, a group of 15 to 20 persons entered the compartment and two of them began throwing out students’ luggage on the platform and yard side as well.  

The witness who was in the middle of the compartment enquired of the intruders if someone among the students had misbehaved with them and “I assured them that if anyone had, I would call for his explanation” he stated.  

“”Meanwhile, two or three of them began pulling a sick student who was lying on an upper berth.  As the sick student resisted they could not pull him down from the berth.  Having failed to do so, they attacked him with small hammers.  He, however, fell off and later managed to run away to the rear compartment.  Later when they addressed me, enquiring as to who was the group in-charge of the students, I told them that it was I.  Meanwhile one of them hit me with a tea-mug, which they had picked up from our compartment.  As my head reeled with the blow, obliging me to seek support against a side-window, someone hit me from behind with something I became semi-unconscious and fell down.  However, shortly afterwards, I regained my senses.  But I continued to lie on the aisle and I could hear the noise.”””

As Mr. Arbab lay there, he noticed that intruders were trying to push the smaller compartment of the bogie.

In the meantime, he stated, Mr. Amin, another student of his college and who happened to be Nazim of Islami Jamiat-i-Tulaba, entered his compartment.  “I saw him bleeding from his head, and his clothes were stained with blood” he stated.  The witness told Mr. Amin that as he was unable top move he should lie on a lower berth.  Some time later some railway men visited them in the compartment and assured them that the assailants had gone, he deposed.

The witness stated that he had heard slogans of “Mirzaiiat-zindabad”, Mohammadiyat murdabad”. “Mirza Ghulam Ahmad ki jai” and “Nishtat ke Musle hai hai”.  In addition to hearing the slogans, while lying on the aisle of the compartment, he overheard people talking that the bogie should be disconnected from the train.  Some said that it should be set on fire, while some others suggested that they should take us  (NMC students) away and wait for some one to come and take them.

Earlier, the witness stated six men boarded the students’ bogie at Sarghoda.  When the NMC students objected to their presence in their bogie, they got off the train at the next station –Shaheenabad.  It were these 6 men, he said, whom he saw calling the crowd at the Rabwah railway station with the help of their hands while standing in the doorway of the last bogies of the train.

Following the attack, Mr. Arbab stated, 13 NMC students including himself were admitted to Nishtar Hospital, Multan.  “I was discharged from the hospital on June 11th, he stated.  

Earlier, he added, the injured students had objected to the rendering of first aid to them at Lyallpur railway station by Mr. Abdul Wali, stated to be a Mirzai.  

Mr. Ejaz Hussain Batalvi, counsel for the Ahmadiyya community, asked Mr. Arbab Alam a number of questions pertaining to internal politics of Nishtar Medical College to contend that students of the institution were divided into 2 hostile groups and this hostility had some bearing on the Rabwah incident.  

Cross-examined, the witness stated that he had not stepped out of his compartment at Rabwah on May 29, in reply to another question, he stated: “I do not know whether or not the luggage of students was thrown out of the train and was later collected, nor did I enquire about it from students.”  

Narrating the incident that occurred on May 22 while the NMC students were travelling in the Peshawar-bound Chenab Express, indicated that the incident was a sequel to the exception taken by students to the distribution of the daily Al-Fazl among them and preaching by an Ahmadi at the Rabwah railway station.

The incident had resulted in the raising of slogans by the students which were “Narraa-i-Takbir” “allah-o-akbar” “Islam-zindabad” “Khatme Nabuwwat zindabad” “Mirzaiyat murdabad”and “Mirzai thah”, he stated.  

Earlier, Mr. Bashir Ahmad of Sarghoda who was travelling on the Chenab Express on May 29 from Sarghoda on his way to Quetta, stated that a boy in his compartment had pulled the chain when the train steamed into the Rabwah station.  As soon as the train stopped, he said, a group of 15-16 young men entered his compartment.  They caught hold of one of the students there and began belaboring him.  After beating one, they pounced upon another but did not beat him severely.  The student who the intruders had earlier beaten up later took refuge under one of the seats of the compartment to save his life from the subsequent assaults, he said.  The attacked student has also sought his protection, he added.  

Later, he said a group of 10 persons entered the compartment, looking for students, but when we told them the men there was none, they left, he said.  The intruders, he said were armed with sticks, one of them was carrying a whip and the rest of them were empty handed, the witness stated that he had seen various groups of persons entering different compartments.  However, I cannot say what they did in the compartments, he added.  

Cross-examined by Mr. Ejaz Hussain Batalvi, the witness stated “we had not intervened to rescue the students because we were afraid that we might be beaten up.”  In reply to a question, he said while beating up those boys, the assailants were saying, “Come along we will give you the hooris”

Ch. Rafique Ahmad Bajwa, one of the counsel appearing in the inquiry, prayed the tribunal to summon confidential reports submitted by the Deputy Commissioner, Jhang, to the Home secretary from December 1873 to May 1974.

As the inquiry was in progress, a man from Jhang, stated to be a lawyer, appeared before the tribunal and sought permission to file documents pertaining to land bought by the Ahmadia community in Rabwah.  He submitted the Ahmadis had bought the land for Rs. 250 per square.  He indicated that Ahmadis had been violating the agreement under which the land was transferred to them.

This isn’t the first time that Ahmadiyya INC has been ordered to infiltrate a community and create exclusive space for Ahmadis.  Ahmadis have done this in Pakistan, in 1948, then they were able to get exclusive housing in Canada in the late 1990’s, they called it peace village, in fact, Ahmadiyya discriminated against a “white-male” in terms of living at the “Abode of Peace” in Canada, check out his video here: https://youtu.be/5Yj5gUayXzU

Zafrullah Khan totally lied about the 1974 Rabwah-terrorist-train-attacks incident

Intro
The British government is always looking for people to work with them and for them as they advance their political agenda, and globally.

I have written about this before…
https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2017/08/29/71-ahmadis-were-arrested-on-29th-may-1974-for-terrorism-new-research-data-aug-2017/

Zafrullah Khan’s full account of the incident
“””In the middle of 1974 they devised a plan which was aimed at provoking anger and
rancour against the Ahmadiyya Cominunity which unfortunately succeeded only too well in its immediate purpose.An incident was staged at the Rabwah railway station, which was so managed that a party of students who belonged to an organization bitterly hostile to the Movement succeeded in provoking a number of Ahmadis, who happened to be present at the railway station when the train carrying the students arrived, into a conflict in which slight injuries were inflicted on some of the students in the party. At the next stop of the train preparations had already been made to receive the students as heroes who had suffered grievous injuries in the cause of Islam at the hands of the members of the Movement. Fiery speeches were made and the incident was painted in lurid colours. The utterly false and misleading accounts of the incident were further embroidered in the press next morning, with the addition of such false, fictitious and horrifying details as that the students had been cruelly maimed, that some of them had their tongues cut out and that others had their genitals cut off. This sent a wave of horror throughout the province and all sorts of premeditated atrocities were let loose against the members of the Movement~ ;In the inquiry subsequently conducted by aJudge of the Lahore High Court into the incident, it was established by the medical evidence produced that all the injuries alleged to have been received by some of the students were simple bruises and scars and not a single one of them was grievous.

For reason’s undisclosed the report of the inquiry has not been published so far. This lends colour to the speculation that the administration does not come out too well in the report. Be that as it may, it is a fact that in the widespread disorders that followed upon the Rabwah incident, as it came to be known, a number of Ahmadis were killed, maimed and injured, and there was large-scale looting and destruction of properties of Ahmadis. In not a single instance did the police or the civil authorities intervene to extend their protection to the victims of violence, no investigation was made into any of the numerous outrages committed against the persons and properties of the Ahmadis, no one was arrested or tried in respect of any of them, and no compensation was awarded to any Ahmadi for the loss inflicted upon him. There were several instances in which the police openly and actively encouraged the unruly and disorderly elements to do their worst.””””

“Ahmadiyya the Renaissance of Islam” (1978), this was just four years after the “Rabwah-terrorist-attacks”.

See pages 347-348

My commentary
Zaf Khan gives no references at all.  He quotes no newspapers.  And he did this strategically, so as to lie to the public.  Remember, this was the only official comments by Ahmadiyya leadership in terms of the Rabwah-train-attacks.  And Zaf Khan made it look like Ahmadis were innocent. However, as the Samdani commission reported in the newspapers, the President of “safety” in Rabwah was present during the attack and coordinating it.

2 Ahmadis were held in jail for inciting a riot at the Rabwah train station in June-1974—See Pakistan Times

Intro
Ahmadis are terrorists.  There is no doubt about it.  As soon as their Khalifa gives them the order, they are ready to maim and kill any of their critics, including me and other Ex-Ahmadis. As my previous blogs confirmed, the Rabwah terrorist attacks of May-1974 were planned by Mirza Nasir Ahmad and Bhutto.  Mirza Nasir Ahmad wanted to be declared Non-muslim, after 25 years of being a Muslim in Pakistan, which was a nation in ruins by the early 1970’s after multiple wars with India and the secession of Bangladesh.

Pakistan Times, Wednesday, June 12th, 1974 reports
“The Punjab Crimes Branch police arrested Abdul Aziz Phamdri Mohtasib, Nazarat-i-Umoor-i-Aamma, and Bashir Ahmed, Sadar Ummomi, Nizamat-i-Intazamia, Rabwa, on charges of inciting and supervising the people on the Rabwa railway station on May 29. 

Both these persons are responsible for law and order and administrative affairs of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat at Rabwa.  

The Crimes Branch police also interrogated the editor, “Al-Fazal”, Masud Ahmed Dehlavi, in connection with the Rabwah railway station incident.—PPI””””

Summary
I will continue to post more on this soon.  Obviously, Ahmadis were involved in the planning of this terorrist attack by Ahmadis.  And the Khalifa is totally missing.  It seems to me that the Khalifa ordered the attack and then threw his workers under the bus, they took the fall, and they made sure the Khalifa was left as innocent.  As we all know…Ahmadis want to die for Ahmadiyya…and would gladly serve in jail for their cult as needed.  That seems to be exactly what happened in this case.

The Queen of the Princely state of Bhopal invested heavily (1878) into Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his Braheen–they were disappointed by the product


Intro

Ahmadiyya leadership has the terrible habit of covering up the misgivings of MGA.  They try to present MGA as someone who was loved by all Muslims in India until 1891, however, that is not true at all, Muslims in India were fed up by MGA by 1885.  In fact, it was only Muhammad Hussain Batalvi who continued to support MGA.  In this specific case, I will present some evidence which shows that Sultan Shah Jahan, Begum of Bhopal, who’s picture is given in the above, was the major contributor in terms of the publishing of the first 4 volumes of the Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya. She seems to have never directly commented on MGA, however, her husband thought that the Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya was offensive and worthless, and thus tore it up and sent to back to Qadian in that condition, which enraged MGA.

By late 1884, MGA was considered a Kafir by most Ahl-e-hadith

Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan died on May 26, 1890
https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2017/07/16/maulvi-muhammad-ahsan-amrohi-lived-exclusively-in-mgas-house/

Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan was a founder of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect
MGA had his nikkah read by the other co-founder of the Ahl-e-Hadith (Nazir Hussain) aka Wahabbi’s of India.  Noorudin was also connected with this group.

Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi moves to Qadian
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi had just lost his job in Bhopal, since Khan had died, MGA immediately hired him.  Ahsan Amrohi moved to Qadian and began working immediately.

MGA claims that the downfall of Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan is God’s wrath
MGA wrote later on, after the fact, as far as 1907, that this was divine intervention working.

She also donated to the building of the first mosque in the Uk, –the Woking mosque
Shahjahan Begum made sizeable donations towards the building of a mosque at Woking, Surrey in the UK. She also contributed generously towards the founding of the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College at Aligarh, which developed into the Aligarh Muslim University. She also subsidised the cost of a railway to be constructed between Hoshangabad and Bhopal.

Ahmadi’s took over the Woking in 1913
Khwaja Kamaluddin took over control of this small mosque in 1913.  After the split of 1914, it fell into the Lahori-Ahmadi’s hands.  The Lahori-Ahmadi’s managed it until the mid 1960’s, when Bashir Ahmad Misri (Who was the imam of that mosque) helped to get it out of their hands, which he succeeded in doing.

Upal’s comments on this topic
See Upal (2017), page 125

“””The reaction to Braheen was not uniform even among the Ahl-e-Hadith. Nawab Sidiq
Hasan Khan, for instance, angrily returned copies of Ahmad’s books sent to him with a
note saying that he was afraid that such controversial works will draw the anger of the
British authorities. Responding to Khan in an ishtihar (i.e., poster), Ahmad exhibited
a much more sophisticated and nuanced understanding of the relationship between
the British government and Christian missionaries in India than was common among
Muslim leaders of the time.”””

Munshi Ghulam Qadir Fasih Sialkoti left Ahmadiyya since MGA was a failure

MIRZA AND MUNSHI GHULAM QADIR FASIH SIALKOTI
SEERATUL MAHDI PART-III PAGE 681
“”””(755) stated to me by Dr. Mir Muhammad Ismail Sahib that Munshi Ghulam Qadir Fasih Sialkoti paid allegiance to Hazrat sb soon after his claim of masih maoud. He shows great zeal and selflessness in the beginning. So Hazrat sb has mentioned him in his book IZALA AUHAM. He was a fast friend of hazrat Molvi Abdul Karim sb. He did not hobble at the time of Athem,s shock, nor he reeled on the issue of nikah of Muhammadi Begum. How did he hobble was strange. He did hobble when Hazrat sb went to see chola sahib at Dera Baba Nanak Batala and after that he intended to write book SAT BACHAN. At this stage Munshi Ghulam Qadir said what kind of Mashi is this that he is wasting his time in such non sense activities just to prove that Baba Nanak was a Muslim. This is not a deed to be done by a person calibre of masih so he quit and never returned here till his death. This humble author says Munshi sahib was an english speaking educated and learned man and was president in the Debate with Athem from our side. But unfortunately he got knocked down.””””

An interesting development in the Chakwal mosque incident

Intro
This is a copy and paste job.

‘Luckily I escaped’: Man accused of role in deadly Pakistan mosque attack tells of his return to Canada

Rashid Ahmed answered the phone at his suburban home in Mississauga this week, which would not be unusual except for the fact that he is being investigated by Pakistani police over a deadly sectarian clash two months ago.

“Luckily I escaped,” he said in an interview during which he acknowledged that Pakistani police had named him “as a terrorist” over the Dec. 12 incident at a mosque in Pakistan’s Chakwal district.

Ahmed said he had returned to Canada before he could be arrested. “That’s how I am safe here, thank God. It’s all work of God, I believe, because had I been caught it would have been not good for my health at all.”

After a mob estimated at between 1,000 and 3,000 stormed the mosque belonging to the minority Ahmadiyya sect in Dulmial, leaving two dead and a half-dozen wounded, Pakistani news agencies identified Ahmed as the key figure behind the attack.

They have claimed that we attacked. It was not an attack. It was an agitation. They attacked us

He denied that, and told the National Post a different version of events, saying a peaceful procession had entered the mosque after being taunted, pelted with stones and shot at. “They have claimed that we attacked. It was not an attack. It was an agitation. They attacked us,” he said. “The rest of what happened was a natural reaction.”

But leaders of Canada’s Ahmadiyya Muslim community said they were unsettled by Ahmed’s return to Ontario and the apparent lack of a Canadian investigation. Safwan Choudhry, a spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, said someone who had taken part in religious persecution in another country “should not have safe haven in Canada.”

In a Twitter post following the incident, the Canadian High Commission in Islamabad commended the government of Punjab “for undertaking to hold mob leaders in Chakwal to account.” But it is unclear what, if anything, Canadian authorities are doing themselves.

RAZA AHMAD RUMI/TwitterA mob estimated at between 1,000 and 3,000 stormed the mosque belonging to the minority Ahmadiyya sect in Dulmial, leaving two dead and a half-dozen wounded.

Upon his return to Toronto’s Pearson airport, Ahmed was questioned “and they were satisfied and said that I can go,” he told the Post. “And then CSIS (the Canadian Security Intelligence Service) came and asked me questions and they said, ‘Okay, no problem.’”

Global Affairs Canada referred questions to the RCMP, which declined to comment, as did Peel Regional Police. The High Commission of Pakistan in Ottawa said it was “premature to fix the responsibility” until the police investigation was complete.

“Rest assured, we have rule of law in Pakistan and all those individuals who are responsible for the incident will be taken to task with the due process of law,” said Nadeem Kiani, the press secretary.

The incident is rooted in the persecution of Ahmadiyya Muslims, who are prohibited by Pakistani law from identifying as Muslims and, like Shiias and Christians, are subjected to attacks.

According to Ahmed, the mosque in Dulmial village, about 150 kilometres south of Islamabad, was built in the 1800s and “occupied” by Ahmadiyyas in 1996. A court dispute over ownership of the mosque remains unresolved, he said.

Last December, Ahmed said he was in the village as it was preparing for a procession marking the birthday of the Muslim prophet Muhammad. “I was not the organizer of this procession,” he said.

He said the procession route was to pass by the Ahmadiyya mosque and there was talk of a protest. As “a high-profile person in good books” because of his community work, the locals consulted him and he suggested they write to the authorities.

The resulting petition, signed by 580 villagers, spoke of “extreme measures” unless police took action to remove the Ahmadiyyas from the mosque. Ahmed’s signature was among the first on the petition.

The Ahmadiyya community, meanwhile, wrote to the district authorities on Dec. 5 to ask for additional security, warning that locals had “incited to violence” and talked about taking “forcible possession” of the mosque.

Prior to the procession, Ahmed said, an announcement on the village loudspeaker system told people not to bring weapons. Once the group had reached the mosque, they asked police to seal the building and remove the Ahmadiyyas.

But police would not do so. “There was some frustration at the time and also quite a few people from close-by communities started coming because they learned about the incident,” Ahmed said.

Ahmed claimed the Ahmadiyyas taunted the protestors, who began to scale the walls. He said three were injured by gunfire from inside the mosque and one protester was pulled in while he was climbing and later died of a gunshot wound.

“I mean what do you expect from a large crowd? They will sit tight and get shot at and stones throwed at them and wrong type of words used against them? There are elements, they will do something and they did it. Some of them who are youngsters tried to climb the wall. But none of the Ahmadis got hurt at all, not even a scratch.”

I mean what do you expect from a large crowd? They will sit tight and get shot at?

However, one of the dead was reportedly an Ahmadiyya who suffered a heart attack inside the mosque. The Canadian Ahmadiyya group said the man had family in the Toronto area. The dead protester was identified by the Nation newspaper as Nahmeed Shafique, 28.

The protesters eventually forced their way into the mosque, where they prayed, said Ahmed, who said he had negotiated with the authorities to bring it to an end. He claimed the fires seen on videos of the incident were set by Ahmadiyyas, who torched their documents and furniture before fleeing.

“That’s nonsense,” said Choudhry, adding video footage showed otherwise. In the videos, protesters can be seen looting the mosque and throwing the contents into piles, which are later seen in flames.

Fearing he would be arrested, Ahmed said he had phoned the Canadian high commission to say “that this incident has happened and … I need your help.” But it was a Friday and the mission was closed, and he stopped using his phone.

Members of the Muslim Community in attacked at their mosque by a mob of nearly a thousand – NO ARRESTS MADE!

Because of a heart condition, he said he had been told he needed an angiogram. “So I thought before I do that there, they will arrest me from the hospital and I may not get my treatment done which could cause death so I should leave. This is what I was suggested, so immediately I was able to buy a ticket and come out. I was lucky.” Upon returning to Canada he had bypass surgery, he said.

A Joint Investigation Team submitted a charge sheet against 61 suspects, according to a report in the Dawn newspaper, which named Ahmed as the “main suspect” and said he had fled before authorities could put his name on an exit control list.

Ahmed said he was among those Pakistani police had “unfairly” named. He said that in addition to “terrorism,” police had accused him of 10 to 12 more minor crimes but he believed the judge appointed to the case would drop charges against everyone, except against those suspected of killings and property damage.

“This is an incident where the government is trying to protect the minorities and working against the majority. That’s why we all are punished,” said Ahmed, who said he had lived in Canada for over 40 years.

Why are they occupying a mosque which is built for Muslims by Muslims?

Dawn reported the Senate Committee on Human Rights had recommended the government take up Ahmed’s case with Canadian officials and seek his extradition. But Canada does not have an extradition treaty with Pakistan.

Asked why the Ahmadiyyas could not have been left to worship at their mosque, Ahmed said that under Pakistani law Ahmadiyyas were not allowed to have mosques. “They should not have anything to do with mosques and they cannot be called Muslims,” he said.

He said Ahmadiyyas were free to worship but not in a mosque. “They could have used a home or build one place, no problem. But why are they occupying a mosque which is built for Muslims by Muslims? This is aggression.”

Choudhry said Canadian Ahmadiyyas were concerned that the persecution they fled was following them to Canada. The website of an organization affiliated with a Mississauga mosque Ahmed has attended calls the Ahmadiyya faith “evil” and an attempt “by anti-Islam forces to disunite Muslims.”

Choudhry said he hoped for a “measured response” from Canadian authorities, which could include taking action against those who “bring values that are both un-Canadian and dangerous to those living in Canada.”
