So the karma caught up with Ahmadi community in pakistan atlast.They were on the fore front of organizing kashmir Jihad in 1947-48 period.Now the jihad is being done on them.So the wheel has turned full circle. Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at and Independence of Kashmir and Palestine 57 page pdf file During the struggles for the liberation of Kashmir, Imam of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at was the first person who paid attention to Kashmir. He initiated the jihad for Kashmir. At his call young and old, trained and untrained members of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at joined the jihad. Arms were provided to them and they were helped monetarily and an organisation was established for them. These are historical facts and cannot be ignored by the opponents of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at. As much as they would like to, they cannot erase this history. At the time when organised efforts were being made by Pakistan for the freedom of Kashmir and the freedom forces were struggling on their own, Jamaâ€˜at-e-Islami was issuing terrible fatawa and propagating that it was not jihad anymore. They advised not to join it [the struggle for Kashmir] with the presumption that it is jihadâ€”[saying that] you may give it any name other than jihad. In other words, an oppressed country where the lives of Muslims were at stake, where Muslim countries from around the globe started taking steps to protect them; at that time, a fatwa was being published from Jamaâ€˜at-e-Islamiâ€™s instructing not to go near [Kashmir] since â€˜it was not jihad.â€™ At that time, the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at established Furqan Force. It was the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at that offered a full battalion to fight against the enemy at its own expense. Afterwards, this battalion was recognised by the government for its meritorious deeds. This battalion included young members who were the only sons of their mothers. When Hadrat Musleh-e-Mauâ€˜udra announced the armed struggle for the liberation of Kashmir, some of the Ahmadis living in villages thought that it was an ordinary scheme and that it would not matter if one did not partici- pate in it. They thought that if it were a religious scheme or a question of Jamaâ€˜at [Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at] services then they would be ready but in the matter of Kash- mir there were other Muslims who could fight for it. But Hadrat Musleh-e-Mauâ€˜udra was very concerned when no one put forward their names from the villages. He sent a message, and the person delivering the message told the villagers that they could not imagine how concerned Hadrat Musleh-e-Mauâ€˜udra was about Kashmir. He added: â€˜I have brought the message of Hudur saying: Get up and offer your sacrifices for the Islamic World.â€™ The person who car- ried the message at that time said that a lady stood up and said: â€˜I am astonished and filled with shame to see that message of the Khalifah is before you [people of the village] and you are not moving; I have got one son and I offer him with the prayers that God Almighty should grant him martyrdom, and I should not see his face again.â€™ This is the sense of honour that was being shown by the Ahmadi mothers. Hadrat Musleh-e-Mauâ€˜udra narrated this incident in his speech... [...] Looking at such selfless services of the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jamaâ€˜at, some God fearing non-Ahmadi people felt it too and they testified [about the sacrifices of Ahmadis during that time]. We have their testimonies with us. One Hakim Ahmad Din, President Jamaâ€˜at-ul-Mashaâ€™ikh Sialkot wrote in his magazine Qaâ€™id-e-Aâ€˜zamâ€”January 1949: Currently out of all the Muslim organisations, the Qadiani sect of Ahmadi Jamaâ€˜at is number one. They have been organised from the beginning, are punc- tual in prayers and fasting etc. Their missionaries are successful not only here but outside in foreign coun- tries as well. They played a major role in the success of Muslim League for the creation of Pakistan. In Jihad-e-Kashmir the kind of sincere and whole- hearted participation shown by Ahmadi Jamaâ€˜at along the side of Kashmirâ€™s Mujahidin and the sacri- fices shown by this Jamaâ€˜at cannot be observed, in our opinion, in any other Muslim Jamaâ€˜at that has shown such kind of courage and steadfastness. We are thank- ful to the Ahmadi elders in all of these matters and pray that God Almighty may bless them with greater capacity to help their country, nation and religion. Additionally, at that time the Chief of the armed forces of Pakistan praised Furqan Force in eloquent words and issued a certificate to the members of Furqan Battalion in which their contributions were acclaimed. It is a long certificate; I will present a couple of its paragraphs to you: ...Your Battalion was composed entirely of volunteers who came from all walks of life [as I stated before all the volunteers were performing the military services at their own, nobody was on a payroll], young peasants, students, teachers, men in business; they were all embued with the spirit of service for Pakistan; you accepted no remuneration, and no publicity for the self sacrifice for which you all volunteered. In Kashmir you were allotted an important sector, and very soon you justified the reliance placed on you and you nobly acquitted yourself in battle against Medals enemy ground and air attacks, without losing a single inch of ground.... (Certificate from General Commander in Chief, Pakistan Army, June 17, 1950) That is the story of those whom the present government of Pakistan considers traitors of Pakistan and other Islamic countries. Show usâ€”if you canâ€”similar â€˜traitorsâ€™ from among you!
