Those individuals who are inimical to Islam have termed our Idara Dawat-o-Irshad�s disclosure of the truth about Mirza Ghulam Qadiani and the movement he founded as acts of strife, sectarianism, animosity, and mischief. In reality, the purpose of this Idara is nothing but “Amre bel Maeroof” (inviting to do good) and “Nahye Anel Monkar” (discouraging from evil). We ask our visitors to recognize this truth and realize the duty of every Muslim, as stated in the Holy Book:
|You are the best of the nations raised up for (the benefit of) men; you enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong and believe in Allah; and if the followers of the Book had believed it would have been better for them; of them (some) are believers and most of them are transgressors.
(The Holy Quran, Al’i-Imran, 3:110)
It is our Islamic faith that true guidance is bestowed by Allah Almighty alone. We are simply discharging our obligation by exposing the truth, so that everyone has an opportunity to make an informed choice – there is indeed no compulsion in religion. Our action, is not motivated by jealousy, hatred, or other deplorable qualities, as some Qadiani missionaries have suggested. We are simply drawing the attention of our visitors to the beliefs which Mirza Ghulam of Qadian and his collaborators have expressed. We would hate for future generation of our Muslim brothers and sisters living in the West to trivialize the fundamental doctrine of the Finality of Prophethood and, out of their kindheartedness, view every new man-made faith as part of the divine religion of Islam.
We have reason to believe that, in the West, Mirzaee leaders have been attempting to portray their movement as a Muslim sect by disguising the true teachings of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani. They do so to entangle the unsuspecting public in their farfetched exposition of the life of their so-called Messiah, Mujaddid (reformer) of time, Mehdi of Age, and Prophet, Mirza Ghulam of Qadian! They endeavor to conceal their inherent and obvious faults to impede unsuspecting young Qadianis (Ahmadis) from making an unbiased decision based on accurate records. Among the evidence they hide, for instance, we find that:
- Mirza Ghulam, the founder of the organization, had attributed a tradition (Hadith) foretelling the appearance of the promised Messiah at the head of the 14th century to the Messenger of Allah(SAW). However, such a Hadith can not be found in any of the authentic books of tradition! By attributing a false Hadith to the Holy Prophet(SAW), Mirza Qadiani merely had attempted to deceive the uninformed people of the village of Qadian.

- In 1904, Mirza Ghulam Qadiani declared that every Muslim would be seen as an unbeliever, “Jahannamie” (doomed to hell) and progeny of prostitute, if he did not affirm belief in his claims. [Read: Mannerism of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani]
Obviously, the inheritors of the Mirza Ghulam’s wealth and fortune have good reasons to hide such evidence from the unsuspecting public! However, in addition to covering up and distorting these and other truths, these missionaries falsely claim to be representing “true Islam” and, for evidence, can only present their TV shows and the fact that they spend millions on the construction of majestic buildings!
In truth, nearly anyone with needed financial means can host TV programs and construct grandiose places of worship: the Temples of Bahais and Mormons are indeed worthy of a visit. Obviously, outward grandeur of buildings, exaggerated claims of worldly accomplishments, and the propaganda displayed under the scrutiny of the media can not be used to dismiss what Mirza Ghulam and the founders of his movement have falsely attributed to Islam.
No doubt, claims of worldly accomplishments can not be accepted as the signs of the truthfulness of any movement and we are well justified in insisting that, instead of such trivial talk, actual evidence should be presented so that all interested individuals may make an informed decision.
