British India – Darul-Islam, Not Darul-Harb


We discussed in one of our recent issues (7 December 2018) an allegation that is lodged on the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas of Qadian, that he announced loyalty to the British Crown and that in this loyalty, he declared Jihad to be unlawful against the British government. 

While he faced bitter opposition on his stance, the fact of the matter is that before his demise, the Muslim Ulema that represented the vast majority of Indian Muslims of British India had changed their standpoint and had aligned their understanding of Jihad to that of the Promised Messiahas.

We present below a cutting from The Homeward Mail where the unanimous fatwa of these Ulema was published on 19 October 1907.
