We have recently been exposed to a leaked picture of the Qaid of Hertfordshire in what appears to be a nightclub, the details of which we have decided not to discuss.
What the Qaid gets up to in his own time is his business. We’re not passing judgment on him. And yes, we know that Muslims get up to this kind of thing too. So let’s get this clear from the outset. Nobody is claiming moral superiority here. What we’re calling out is the hate speech of the Ahmadiyya when the facts show that they are morally no different to any other strand in society, which just leaves the cult aspect. Frankly, if Ahmadis aren’t saved, what do they need to pay a cult for?
We’re saying the following:
1) You claim that people who left Ahmadiyya to speak up against it were “kicked out”. Even if that were true (and it is not, and we have proof), you “kick out” ordinary people for attending weddings, but the same so-called “sins” go unpunished at the highest levels. The “Shehzan” family and Rafiq Hayat at another mixed wedding celebration, but this time for the Royal Couple, didn’t so much as get a reprimanding look from the spiritual leader of the Ahmadiyya.
We felt back then that socially boycotting and ejecting ordinary people from their social group (the cult aspects notwithstanding) given the brainwashing you’ve put them through was unnecessarily cruel and humiliating. We still feel that way now, so we wouldn’t want you to “kick out” the “Shehzan family” or Rafiq Hayat for their part in mixed events. What we object to, and what ordinary Ahmadis object to, is the stench of hypocrisy. The stench of double standards. It’s one rule for the royal families and it’s one rule for the ordinary Ahmadis whom you keep in fear and whose money the likes of Mirza, his children and his grandson live off in increasing luxury. Have you read Orwell’s Animal Farm? When you read about the pigs in that book, you will recognise them very quickly. Many Ahmadis already do.
2) You call yourselves the “saved sect”. The so-called “saved sect” has been exhibiting the most hateful and hypocritical behaviour of late. On the one hand, you gossip and backbite about Muslims, but your own business and manners are beneath contempt. You accuse Muslims of terrorism, moral turpitude and extremism, whilst indulging in repeated hatred and abuse yourselves, the many examples of which populate the pages of this site, as well as many others.
If you’re the “saved sect”, then why are your leaders, including some of your “Qaids” so publicly depraved? If this man were to have indulged in this behaviour in the privacy of his home, there would be no issue except between him and his Maker, but to brazenly allow such pictures to be taken in a public place meant that there was a strong possibility that he felt he was beyond consequence. Sadly, that is a trait of many Qadiani leaders. More to the point, if he was an ordinary individual with no authority or leadership role, we wouldn’t even be discussing this.
You will be surprised as Qadiani Ahmadis to hear that we consulted many Ahmadis about this post before we went ahead with it. We consulted Muslims who know about the issue and Muslims who don’t. We got a consensus. So the question is, with leaders like the Qaid of Hertfordshire, who supposedly is an example and a leadership figure to the 15-40 year-olds of his region, and who has according to our information been a secretary of the “Sehet-e-Jismani” function (physical health) for younger boys – and who is due to be given a senior Jalsa post, and with leaders like Rafiq Hayat, despised by many Ahmadis, a man who brazenly asked people to use credit cards to pay for a mosque scheme if they didn’t have cash, a man who happily calls Muslims extremists whilst dangerously conflating charity and private interests and taking shirk lightly, how can you possibly be saved?
Ahmadis, you are, as my reverted friend puts it, re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. We urge you to take the lifeboats of Islam.
3) Finally, a twist in the tale. There is another leader who fails the test of the “saved sect”. The so-called “Khalifa of Allah”. We are talking of course, of His Holiness Mirza Masroor, who personally approved the Qiadat of the pictured gentleman.
Ahmadis should ask Mirza Masroor one question, because nothing else in this post is as important as this single point:
Was his hotline to God broken?
