Was Hazrat Mirza Sahib a British Agent?
Taken from: Glowing Tributes to the Promised Messiah (Section: 'British Government in the Eyes of Ahl-e-Hadith', pp. 38-40)
Compiled and Translated by: Mirza Muhammad Hussain, B. Com.

[Note: Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib of Qadian is often maligned through numerous allegations. One of them is that he was a British agent and was working against the Muslims! All this tirade occurs because he praised the British Government for the religious freedom it extended to its subjects.

Presented below are six references which will prove beyond doubt, that leading Muslims of Hazrat Mirza Sahib's time, too, spoke very highly of the ruling British Government. What is most baffling is that some of them have prayed for the Government, and others called their Muslim brethren wretched and non-Muslims for venturing into a revolt against the very same British Government.]

1. Maulvi Muhammad Husain Batalvi wrote:

"Of all the classes of people in India, it is the Ahl-e-Hadith Sect which regards it safer to live under the auspices of this (British) Government from the point of view of peace and freedom of faith, than under the Islamic states. It is because this Sect with the exception of British Government can not get full religious liberty under any other Government. (Ishaat-us-Sunnah, vol. 9, No.7, p.195)."

2. Janab Mujtahid Sayyed Ali Haairi wrote:

"We are proud of living under the auspices of a Government under which love of justice and religious liberty has assumed the status of law. This has no parallel in the world or under any other Government. Thus I say that every Shia should, as a token of his gratitude, make up his mind to feel beholden to the British Government. (Munazah Tahreef Quran, pp. 67-68 April 1923)."

3. Maulana Shibli Numani wrote:

"From the golden age of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to this day, it has been an invariable characteristic of the Mussalmans (i.e., Muslims) that they have been loyal and faithful to every Government under which they lived. This was not their policy. It was the teaching of their religion. (Maqalaat-i-Shibli, vol.1, p.171, Maaraf Printing Press, Azamgarh 1904)."

4. Hanafi Mufti Maulana Muhammad Ishaque Patialvi gave his ruling thus:

"When Mussalmans came under the rule of the Christian Government, if any one of them killed any member of the ruling nation as a spiritual merit and called it Jihad, he was guilty of misguidance. His act was forbidden, and absolutely unlawful. It was not at all a sacred war or Jihad. But it was a mischief and breach of peace. (Siraj al-Huda, Razvi Press, Delhi 1904)."

5. Anjuman Himayat-i-Islam, Lahore:

"As a mark of gratitude for the favours bestowed on us by the Government we have been its loyal subjects. It is the fulfilment of a duty we owe to it as its subjects. It also signifies spiritual merit because the Holy Quran says: 'Obey God, obey the Apostle and those in authority among you.' May this Government last long! Under its auspices we enjoyed peace. May God enable us to remain loyal for ever! (Printed Report of the Anjuman Himayat-i-Islam, 1903).

6. Maulvi Zafar Ali Khan, Editor the daily Zamindar, Lahore wrote:

"If some wretched Mussalman who is enjoying full freedom of faith and peace, ventures to revolt against the Government, we announce by the beat of drum, that that Mussalman is no Mussalman at all, (Zamindar, November 11, 1911)."

He again wrote:

"Our heavenly religion exhorts us to obey the commands of the Ruler of the day. We enjoy all the blessings, secular and religious, under the British Crown. From the point of view of religion, it is binding on us to be loyal (Zamindar, Lahore, November 1, 1911)."
