[qadianism] Re: More on Second Coming of Isa (A.S.)
By Abdul Aziz @axe.humboldt.edu

Mr. McKlosky: Dr. Siddiqi is a Ph. D. in religion. The professors who
taught him may have been Jewish, christians or Muslims. I have been in
touch with Dr. Siddiqi. He refuses to acknowledge a statement by Maulana
Nanautvi that 'coming of another prophet during or after the life of
Prophet Muhammad will not negate khatam an nabiyyeen'. I sent him the
original writing, published by a non-Ahmadi publishing house. So please
before you bring him as a witness of last resort, think what I wrote.
