In this book, the author deals with an issue that has lamentably marked humankind's religious history. Relying on a wide range of interviews he conducted throughtout Pakistan, Antonio R. Gualtieri relates the tragic experience of members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. Their right to define themselves as Muslims has been denied by the Govt. of Pakistan acting in collusion with orthodox Islamic teachers. Ahmadis have been beaten and murdered. They have been jailed, hounded from jobs and schools, their mosques sealed or vandalized, for professing to be Muslims and following Islamic practices. This book records their testimony of Harassment and persecution resulting from their loyalty to their understanding of God and HIS revelation.

AMJ’s clarification

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at (AMJ) responded to an article printed in The Jakarta Post, which made a number of false claims about the community.

The article titled “Govt spares Ahmadiyah with no ban” (Jan. 16, p. 1) said the Indonesian Government had chosen not to ban the Ahmadiyya Jama’at due to an apparent reversal, by the Ahmadiyya Jama’at, regarding the status of its founder, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian.

Speaking about the article and clarifying the position of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at, the central Press Secretary, Abid Khan said: “On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at I would like to state that we are very disappointed by the aforementioned article printed in the Post.

This article suggested that our Community had, God forbid, changed its position regarding the status of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian.

To clarify, it is an inherent part of our faith and belief that Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian is the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (Guided One).

Every true Ahmadi Muslim shares the same belief that the Founder of the Community is the same Messiah and Mahdi whose advent was foretold by the Holy Prophet of Islam.

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was the final law-bearing Prophet and he brought a complete and perfect teaching.

Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was the true Promised Messiah and Mahdi, who came to rejuvenate the message of Islam and therefore we most certainly recognize and accept him as a true Prophet of God Almighty.

It is hoped the Post recognizes and rectifies the mistakes it made in the aforementioned article.”
