The Causes of the Despicable and Wretched State of Muslims
“This whole picture being drawn has three sides, and one of them is related to the 1953 riots. The non-Ahmadis are generally trying to prove that before the advent of the Promised Messiah(as), Muslims were united in spirit. They were like the fingers in a fist, depicting strength in unity. There was no weakness or division among them. In fact, the Muslims were so mighty that colonial powers trembled before them. Therefore, (so the argument goes) these colonial powers sowed the seed of Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jama‘at to spread dissension among Muslims and to disperse Muslim unity.
“This was done to evade the terrifying danger presented by Islam to these colonial powers. This is the picture being presented against the Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jama‘at in the White Paper.
“Reality completely contradicts all of this. The truth surfaces even in the writings of the authors that they have been publishing. Among the literature is a book published by Pakistan’s Ministry of Religious Affairs named Qadianiyyat, written by Maulavi Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadvi, the government of Pakistan has published this book extensively throughout the world. This book has also been translated into Arabic and English.
“Now, think about this, the White Paper paints the scene as though there was peace and harmony among Muslims before the advent of the Promised Messiah(as), and the British created Ahmadiyyah Muslim Jama‘at to divide Muslims. However, the author of Qadianiyyat describes conditions before the Promised Messiah (as) in the following words:
“Looked at internally, the situation was even worse. Mutual disagreements between Muslim sects had assumed frightful proportions. Each sect was busy denouncing the other.
“Sectarian polemics were the order of the day, leading often to violent clashes, even to bloodshed and litigation over controversial sectarian issues. The whole of India was in the grip of what might be termed a sectarian civil war.
“This too had given birth to mental confusion and created breaches in the Muslim society and disgust in the people and had considerably damaged the prestige of the Muslim ‘ulema and of Islam.”
(Maulana Syed Abul Hasan ‘Ali Nadvi Nazim Nadwatul-‘ulama’ Lacknow, Qadianiyyat, p. 16–17)
The author further writes:
“Muslims were generally in the grip of frustration and had fallen prey to defeatism. The failure of the struggle of 1857 and of a number of other recent religious and militant movements was fresh in their memory.
“Many of them had despaired, therefore, of bringing about any change and reform through normal processes and a large number of people had begun to await the advent of some charismatic personality, some divinely appointed leader. (Ibid.).”
“See, when Allah desires, this is how He makes the truth known. On the one hand, they lie and try to hide the facts. But, on the other hand, they describe something else from which the truth suddenly emerges and manifests itself. This is what is called deception. This was the background, and there are many references of Muslim ulema which draw a very clear picture of calamities and afflictions affecting Muslims.
“In fact, there are so many references that books spanning thousands of pages could be written. But, for now, I have chosen only a few of them. The newspaper Wakil of January 15, 1927 reads:
“This disease is not new but had begun long ago. First, Muslims followed the Jews and Christians in their personal lives, and now it is being done collectively. This resulted in the revocation of khilafat. (Wakil, January 15, 1927)
