Quotes from a Khatme Nabuwwat conference
Mullahs are routinely given permission by the government to come to and assemble in Ahmadiyya headquarters town Rabwah, a number of times every year. They hold conferences in this Ahmadiyya town, ostensibly to preach the Finality of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet or his excellence. They transport their audience from other towns and talk rarely about the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat; instead they undertake extensively foul and profane language against the founder of Ahmadiyyat. They preach violence against the Ahmadiyya Community, and also indulge profusely in their favorite topic – national and international politics. They do so openly on loudspeakers; thus they make their entire texts available to anyone interested. From these texts, delivered in one such conference on 2,3 October 2003, we produce here only brief extracts, as the space in this Report does not permit full reproduction of their verbosity.
at Muslim Colony, Rabwah on 2, 3 October 2003
An apostate has no right to live longer than 3 days. … … ….
I urge the government to disinter that dog (Ahmadi) from his grave (at Hafizabad). Hafiz Maulvi Abdul Wahab
While the Finality of Prophethood is established, how can we endorse the Prophethood of a one-eyed (fellow) who died in a latrine (the founder of Ahmadiyyat)?
Maulvi Kamran Hyderabadi
If our superiors order us, we shall destroy Rabwah by tomorrow morning. … …
Mirza, let alone be a prophet, cannot be called even a human; he was corrupt and a rascal. He was the most depraved.
Maulvi Rafiq Jami
Now, (President) Bush is sending messages of apology to Mullah Umar. May I sacrifice my life over Mulla Umar! He replied, “Now, you will only receive dead bodies of your soldiers”. The whole world will see more and more that the flag of Taliban will be raised high, Inshallah… …Even in Iraq, God will humiliate Bush.
Maulvi Amjad Khan
If you read Mirza’s books, he seems to be not even human, leave alone being a prophet. You will laugh if I relate you his personality. He did not know how to put on his shoes.
In answer to a question as to the validity of marriage of a Muslim woman with a Qadiani man, Mullah Allah Wasaya said: “ If any of the two is an infidel, the marriage is not valid. The period of ignorance is out (excused), but thereafter the marriage is not valid after three seconds. Their children will be (considered) as illegitimate and will not be entitled to inheritance. … …
Anyone who feels mild towards Qadianis is an infidel. ………………..
In answer to the question as to whether it is right to wage jihad against Qadianis, Mulla Wasaya said, “… swine are not as detestable in Islam as Qadianis. They should be given the same treatment as Musailma the liar, in Yemama by (Caliph) Abu Bakr. Thus, it is not mandatory for an Islamic government to search out all the swine in its realm, but it is its obligation to hound out the Qadianis and kill them.
Question – Answer Session
With pointed reference to the rulers in Pakistan, Mullah Abdul Hameed Noon said,“… O allies of America, you stick to America. In order to crush terrorism, you offer the excuse of being American allies. You are hypocrites, not believers. Listen, even Satan is not a greater terrorist than America. Is Israel not a terrorist state? Palestinians have been persecuted. Friends of America are also infidels… (In Pakistan) these days the (National) Assembly gives the appearance of a Madrassa; all the bearded ulema of MMA keep their heads high (therein). … …
Faiz Ali Haqqani, The NWFP Education Minister, stated, “ I consider my participation in this Conference a means of my salvation. Great personalities are present here – while I am so evil and ignorant. I am, what I know I am. In their (august) presence it is not proper for me to say anything…. They (Qadianis) are an evil tree. There were a few (of them) even in my own village. Now the village has been cleansed of them… … We (the NWFP government) were pressured through America and Israel, but now these (very people) desire to issue grants to our Madrassas, and they want to cooperate with us and wish to protect mosques and madrassas… To conclude, I submit that in the afternoon I telephoned the Chief Minister of NWFP, and he is pleased to donate a sum of Rs. 100,000 to the Majlis Tahaffuz Khatame Nabuwwat”.
“This is quite apparent;
That Mirza, the one-eyed, is an infidel.
He abrogated the Jihad.
Finality of Prophethood –Zindabad.”
Stanza from a Poem read by Tariq Jallandhri
A Qadiani came to me and said that (why) they (who) share the same creed, prayers, the Quran, (in Islam) are not Muslims? I said, “ No. You people are like a bottle full of urine, on which there is a label of ‘life-saving drink’.” Mufti Muhammad Tayyab
Qadianis call the Mirza a prophet. They have no faith. They must be killed (as directed by our Sharia).
Maulvi Ghulam Rasul.
(Muhammad) he is the one who is killer of Jews and Christians, while this one (Ahmad) claims to be planted by Queen Victoria. Britain that cared for this plant – in front of the same Britain and America Musharraf wags his tail like a dog… …We can spare the families of Jews and Christians but we will destroy their (Ahmadis’) settlements with bulldozers. Exterminate their women. Destroy their plantations. Do not rest till the flag of Finality of Prophethood is raised at the Parliament House. Anyone who comes in our way will be himself responsible for his own extermination.
Hafiz Ehtsham Ilahi
The real jihad was taught by our mentors of Khatme Nabuwwat. It is now in the developed form, as the MMA. … … …
Qadianis are infidels. How can they be tolerated in Pakistani Army? … … …
(O the Rulers), Issue the Order that no Qadiani will be enrolled in the police even as a constable. Do you know that sending Pak Army to Iraq is a plan devised by Qadianis? Our prime minister says that the US has played its due role in ensuring peace in South Asia. Is he not a drum (dumb)? The US has sent for Jamali, after Musharraf, so as to make a deal with him to send the Pak Army to Iraq. However, I tell Jamali Sahib, that if he intends to return to the country, and return as a prime minister, then take it that no Pak soldier will go for this job (to Iraq). It is a Qadiani conspiracy; we shall not allow it to succeed. I salute the Iraqis who act upon the Hadith that Jihad will go on till the doomsday. Americans first attacked in Afghanistan, and then in Iraq – now they beg every country, be it Japan, Pakistan or India, to go to Iraq and protect their army from destruction. My general and my soldier will not proceed to help out the Jews and Christians. … … … … … …
If any soldier goes to Iraq and gets killed there, the MMA will not allow funeral prayers for him. Musharraf Sahib, think over your policies once again. To hell with your politics; our faith is our first concern.
Bashir Ahmad Shah
Anyone who denies the Finality of Prophethood should not be called an ass, as that is defiling the ass. To call such a person an animal is an insult to the animal, and (likewise) to call him (a Qadiani) a dog is an insult to the dog because the dog is always so faithful. He can only be called a swine, as swine loves filth. So to call such a person ‘a human’ amounts to defiling the humanity; for this reason I call these (Qadianis) swine.
Muhammad Hussain Kalianwi
Pubs and gambling houses are being built here (in Pakistan) for a people that are illiterate, poor and debt-ridden. Educational institutions are not being built; there is no money for hospitals. A poor man is deprived of even a paracetamol tablet, while billiard tables are available here (to the rich). All this is done under the influence of Qadiani religion: but they do not have a religion. These (Qadianis) are adulterers and unchaste. To consider them civilized is insult to civilization. They indulge in tonics, why? – for fornication. Even Mirza Mahmud, son of the Mirza Qadiani, – pick up and read his book, Religion of Rabwah – it admits that this town is inhabited by lustful people and the people of Lot. Young males are allured here (to sex) – its girls, likes the daughters of Jews and Christians, beckon Muslim youth with their body and eyes. As for Musharraf – is he a Muslim or a Qadiani, by faith – what can I say? His own statement was published in all newspapers of different languages, that at the occasion of (the opening ceremony of) Kohat Tunnel, he said: ‘Hijab and purdah (veil worn by women) are outcome of superficial thought’. But this (veil) is a commandment of Allah; it is in the Quran; the Holy Prophet implemented it. He made his holy wives practice it. Thus (this) Kafir (infidel) does not realize as to who ordered the purdah and whose disobedience one would incur by rejecting Hijab. He (Musharraf) is an ignorant man of the highest order. He should seek forgiveness as he made the statement deliberately. … … … … … … … …
O Allah, get hold of this (ruler) in thy retribution, and make him an example and a warning for the rest so that none should dare corrupt Thy religion. These (rulers) are enemies of Pakistan. His uniform is not (meant) for fighting the ulema, nor to obstruct missionaries of the faith, nor to befriend the enemies of God… but the uniform was given to him to fight those whom he has befriended… Today, he has helped entrench an infidel army (in Afghanistan) and is getting his Muslim brethren killed, and (he) is proud of it. Afghanistan is the land where a Qadiani missionary was killed like a dog (in 1903). The same history is repeating itself (sic). Musharraf is truthful when he says that Kamal Ataturk is his hero. I ask him ‘what did he achieve’? He only caused the ruin of the faith. He damaged the cause of the Umma. … … … … … …
In short, it is essential to convey as to who was this man (Mirza Qadiani) and why did the English prefer him. A gutter worm will befriend only gutter worms. … … … …
This man (Musharraf) is a crook, a deceiver – he will not do what he says. By the Lord of Kaaba, if that not were so, my blood is licit to all of you people. I am worse than the dirt on the soles of your shoes, but let me tell you that this man will cheat you all. There was never a better well-wisher than we, nor will there be in future. Have faith in us. … … …
Mr Pervez Musharraf, O ignorant, O ignorant MNAs and MPAs, shameless husbands of women sans veil! Who is Ignorant? Ignorant is he who takes orders from other men rather than God… Who are the rulers of our country? – Those, who are without honour, shameless, lechers, libertines. They urinate while standing. They do not know how to wash their bottom. … … …
We have to undertake defense. We have to fight. We have to protect the Islamic rule. So long as there is no Islamic government, Islam cannot be imposed. All will become clear after the rule of Mulla Umar (is re-imposed). If one person is hanged, the next one will be deterred (consequently). (In his rule) there will be no fornication, no theft – that will usher ‘peace’. I swear by God, that cannot happen (here in Pakistan). This Musharraf, what does he know about peace? These people are the worms and insects that breed subsequent to the (monsoon) rains. They do not understand the alphabet of peace. Do not obey their laws; do not follow them.
Maulvi Ata-ul-Muhaiman Shah Bokhari
I tell you, the Mirza cannot be compared to even a Kafir (an infidel). A Kafir is better than the Mirza. To say that Mirza was a Kafir is an insult to the Kafir… Mirzais are the worst apostates and Kafirs in the universe… …They write the Kalima (Islamic creed) in their places of worship. When you return, get criminal cases registered against them under PPC 298C.
Maulvi Ghulam Muhammad
These Mirzais are spineless. They are merely puppets of the English. If your Imam (Musharraf) is a parliamentarian, bring him to the parliament and rise against Bush (sic). The day America is defeated, that will be the day of the resurgence of Islam. You invited me to this conference, wrote my name and gave me the opportunity (to speak here). Perhaps that will suffice for my atonement. We are believers already … …as for Mirzais; they will have to be converted with sword.
Maulvi Muhammad Murad
People demand that this abode of infidels (Rabwah) be destroyed.
It is the den of fifth columnists; this den should be razed.
Otherwise, we are in the field wearing the shrouds (ready to die);
We are the inheritors of Khatame Nabuwwat, ready to shed our blood.
Stanza from a poem sung by Suhail Anjum
Our missionaries have spread out in Britain, America and the deserts of Africa. Thereby, God has helped, and now Qadianis have no place on earth to hide. Today, Chenab Nagar (Rabwah) is witness to the slogans of the Finality of Prophethood. This is a clear proof that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was an imposter. How wonderful that the rulers and (forces of) disbelief of the whole world supported Qadianis but could not protect them. Two years ago the (Islamic) Ideology Council met Pervez Musharraf. (There) I asked Musharraf, “You have lived in Okara. People accuse you of being a Qadiani; your wife is from there.” He replied, “ There is no Qadiani in my family.” “You support them”, I told him.
Syed Amir Hussain Gilani
Mullah Manzoor A Alhussaini concocted the following story:
… In addition, the neighbors of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad presented 15 arguments (in his condemnation) 1. Nod Parast (?) (sic) 2. Selfish 3. Liar 4. Sinner 5. Experienced evil and foul dreams 6. A bad character 7. Hungary for publicity 8. Glutton 9. Ill-starred 10. Cheat 11. Imposter 12. Cunning 13. Dissimulator 14. His followers are bad-characters 15. Only by living here, we have come to know that he is a bad man, busy in fraud and deception.
Mullah M A Alhussaini
Today, I intend to warn Qadianis that they are mistaken in presuming that Muslims are dead (that they cannot be sacrificed). Our honour is at state. Dogs are barking at our honour. O young men, come to your senses and rise to uphold the honour of the Prophet. I remind you of Ataullah Shah Bokhari’s call to chop off the tongue of those who defile the Prophet, or slice away their ears. This (situation) is a challenge to our honour. When we request the government (for help) in anti-Qadiani action, they tell us to get it in writing from the Home Secretary (that) blasphemy has been committed. We shall allow no freedom to dogs who are guilty of blasphemy against Prophethood. The government ought to make effective arrangements; otherwise we ourselves will pull their tongues out.
Mullah Allah Wasaya, the Stage Secretary
Safeguarding the dogma of the Finality of Prophethood and defending it against the attacks, in fact amounts to the defense of the Umma and Islam. From one side, Qadiani sect is attacking Islam. After Qadian, it was Rabwah. After Rabwah, now America is their center, while Zionists are supporting them, backed by Israel. … … … …
The Pakistani Ulema are passing through a difficult phase. Afghanistan was attacked (by Americans) and the Taliban government came to naught. Qadianis and General Pervez were delighted at the outcome. Thus Americans became the occupying power; it is for this reason that the Islamic Umma does not accept Pervez Musharraf a part of itself. Islam, the Muslim Umma and the respected ulema are being blamed of extremism. But, in fact, it is America that is extremist, terrorist and prejudiced. … … … …
Pervez Musharraf desires that we should fight rather than unite, but the MMA is uniting us all together. We should all therefore support the MMA.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman, General Secretary of the MMA
A number of resolutions were moved and passed at the Conference. Some of these are reproduced below in English:
3. We demand (of the government) that a stop be put to the Qadiani propaganda, and Mirza Masroor Ahmad (Supreme Head of the Ahmadiyya Community) be tried on charge of treason and be declared a rebel.
4. We strongly appeal to the government that Qadianis should be fired from the key posts of the CBR, the PIA, the Auqaf Department, the Intelligence and the Army.
5. A stop should be put to the missionary activities of the Qadiani, Christian and Jewish NGOs to convert Muslims, and the unnecessary aid to them. Muslims themselves should help Muslims.
8. This conference extends greetings to Maulana (sic) Durrani in that the NWFP government passed the Sharia Bill.
9. We condemn the U.S. on improper interference in the affairs of Madrassas and raids on them, and (urge) that the misleading propaganda be stopped.
10. We demand of the Prime Minister Jamali, the President Pervez Musharraf and the members of the parliament that Sharia be imposed (in the land).
13. Foreign troops should be recalled from Afghanistan, Iraq, Kashmir and Chechnya, and people should be given the right to form their government.
20. We demand of President Pervez Musharraf that (as) it is sacrilegious to send Islamic army to Iraq; he should abstain from doing so.
etc. etc. etc.
It is obvious that this apparently religious forum is only a proxy for sectarian slander and national and international politics. Mullahs promote their political and extremist agenda at these occasions in the name of Finality of Prophethood. The government that claims to oppose and restrict religious extremism, confront terrorism and discourage sectarianism should take note of what goes on in these conferences at Rabwah and take steps to implement its declared policies. What is reported above is only the part that was overt, what the mullahs discuss and plan in their private sittings is not difficult to assess.
Here, we may also propose to recall the new strategy of ‘Enlightened Moderation’ announced in the UN by the President of Pakistan. If the mulla is allowed to continue to hold such conferences at Rabwah, the world will find it difficult to believe that the President is at all serious about his strategies and declared intentions.
