Allow us to begin with the promise that both Muslims and Qadianis
can not be on the straight path.  I believe the question of whom 
is manipulated since childhood to believe in a misguided faith, 
becomes clear only when we rely on evidence, and not personal
opinion.  Allah(SWT) has already told us that He, by divine 
decree, has made the actions of misguided people seem appealing
to them.  All seekers of the Truth should free themselves from
hateful sectarian way of their manipulative leaders to be able
to realize the Truth.

Generally speaking, dear friend, individuals who have been 
manipulated are not aware that they have been misguided.  Do you
suppose the followers of Jim Jones, David Koresh, or Bahaullah
knew that they were being manipulated?  Obviously not!  They too
were very devoted to the Movement they had become affiliated with
So, what is the proper measuring stick: how do we know someone
has been manipulated and is blindly following the way of His 
fathers?

Those who have been misguided are not able, nor willing, to accept
the facts and evidence that clearly refute the ideas they have been
raised with.  Instead of realizing the mistake of their way and 
the way of their fathers, they become agitated and abusive in 
speech.  They attack the messenger, who is providing them with an
opportunity to save themselves and their loved ones, when their 
anger should really be directed towards those who have been taking
advantage of them and their fathers.

May Allah(SWT) deliver the sincere seekers of the Truth away
from such blind hatred and dislike for the Truth, when the 
Truth differs from what they themselves desire.

As far as your assertion of dedication to your Movement, that 
can not be taken as sign of truthfulness of Qadianism nor your
being guided by Allah(SWT), since many Jews, Christians, Hindus,
Mormans, Bahais, and others are also similarly devoted to their 
faith and make similar claims.

I know that those who sincerely believe in Allah(SWT), the 
prophethood of Muhammad(SAW), and the Hereafter will be able
to distinguish between clear evidence and baseless arguments 
advanced by those who do not want to be among the Submitters
and prefer their present position, prestige, and heritage to
the everlasting life.

The test of True Love for Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW) is
obedience to their Commands, and not simple words.
