The Plague – Episode Two

Let us commence, inshaAllah, with the second episode of the plague with the following quote:

“Since the Punjab is closest to the residence of the Promised Messiah, and the Punjabis are the first to be addressed by him, that is why the Punjab has been the first to suffer from this epidemic.” (The Essence Of Islam, Volume 5, Page 104)

Punjab was the first to be afflicted with the plague? This is obviously not true as it broke out in Hong Kong from where it spread to India. Even in India it did not strike Punjab first and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad knows this himself:

“I have heard that when the plague broke out in Bombay…” (The Essence Of Islam, Volume 5, Page 92)

Even history testifies to this fact as the quote below from the ‘Plague Ports’ makes it perfectly clear that Bombay had been struck by this pandemic before Punjab.

“…bubonic plague found it easy to make its way from Canton to Hong Kong in 1894… The city of Bombay… was next to be visited by bubonic plague” (Plague Ports, Page 15)

“…plague raced north and west through to the rural parts of the Bombay Presidency and on into the Punjab…” (Plague Ports, Page 51)

The image in the link below has been produced from the 1911 census of India for anyone disputing the location of Bombay and Punjab as one and the same. They are two distinct districts as illustrated by the map below.

Quite clearly the plague did not strike Punjab first but broke out in Hong Kong in 1894. If Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was not referring to the whole world then even within India the plague epidemic broke out in the colonial port city of Bombay in September 1896 and spread from there to other parts of the country. Its initial impact was limited to port cities, particularly Bombay, but later also Pune, Calcutta and Karachi. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad simply deceived illiterate villagers by stating Punjab was struck with the plague first. To justify his lie he states that Punjab was first to hear his claims and reject them, thus the plague appeared in Punjab first. Based on such logic within the Punjab, Qadian should have been the first to suffer. In any case, it has been evidently proven that this is not true, the Punjab district was not the first to be hit by the plague. Ahmadis, I must ask if this is not deception then what is?

The Holy Qu’ran – 003.161 – Al-e-Imran (3) Ayah (161)
And it is not attributable to a prophet that he should act dishonestly and he who acts dishonestly shall bring that in respect of which he has acted dishonestly on the day of resurrection; then shall every soul be paid back fully what it has earned, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly.

May Allah (SWT) guide the Ahmadis back to Islam. All praise is due to Allah (SWT).

  1. more proof:

    “But this killer disease has not yet been fully eradicated. It is in fact on the rise in Bombay, and the land of the Punjab is undoubtedly in danger”
    Essence of islam vol 5 page 85

    • Thanks for that, clearly shows he knew it had hit Bombay and not the Punjab yet he attempts to fool everyone by claiming the Punjab has been hit first because they were the first to reject him. What a fraudster.
