Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama‘at and the Palestinian Muslims
Part 8 of a review of the Pakistani Government’s “White Paper”: Qadiyaniyyat – A greave threat to Islam.
In 1984 the Islamic government of Pakistan set aside all Islamic injunctions and took upon itself the burden of depriving the Ahmadi Muslims of many basic human rights including religious social freedoms. In an attempt to justify this action, the government of Pakistan published a so-called White Paper under the title ‘Qadiyaniyyat – Islam kay liya Sangin Khatrah‘ (Qadiyaniyyat – A Grave Threat to Islam).
Although there was nothing new in this so-called White Paper and the Jama’at literature already included detailed answers to all the issues which were raised, nevertheless Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Khalifatul-Masih IV, the then Imam of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, answered these allegations in a series of Friday sermons. These sermons (in Urdu) were published by the London Mosque in 1985 and the English translation is now being published.
Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Khalifatul-Masih IV(rta) delivered this sermon on March 15, 1985 at the Fazl Mosque London. It deals with the allegation that the Ahmadis are (God forbid) agents of Israel. It points out that, as commanded by the Holy Qur’an and exemplified by the Holy Prophet Muhammad(sas), Ahmadis have been actively spreading the message of Islam all over the world, including Israel. It also gives detail about the glorious services rendered by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at during the tragedy of the Palestinian Muslims.
