MIRZA GHULAM FLAYS ISLAM
THE PRE-MIRZA ISLAM IS A 'DEAD RELIGION'
"Probably in the year 1906, at the proposal of Khwaja Kamaluddin, Moulvi Muhammad Ali entered into an agreement with the Editor of Akhbar-e-Watan to the effect that the Review of Religions would publish no articles about the (Qadiani) sect; it would only publish general articles on Islam and the Editor of the Watan would propagate in his paper for the assistance of the Journal, Review of Religions. The promised Masih disapproved this proposal and it was strongly opposed by the Jamaat also. Hazrat Sahib said:
'Will you present dead Islam before the world by excluding me?" (Zikr-e-Habib by Mufti Muhammad Sadiq Qadiani page 146, First Edition, Qadian)
"We believe that a religion which does not have the continuity of Prophethood (as in Islam) is a dead religion. We call the religions of the Jews, the Christians and the Hindus dead only because now there are no prophets in them. If this were the position in Islam too, we would be no more than mere story-tellers. Why do we regard it superior to other religions? It must have some distinction". (Malfoozat-e-Mirza, Vol. 10, page 127)
MIRZA DENOUNCED ISLAM AS THE ACCURSED, SATANIC AND CONTEMPTIBLE RELIGION
"That religion is no religion and that prophet is no prophet by following whom a man does not come so close to God as to be honoured with divine conversation. That religion is accursed and contemptible which teaches that human progress depends only on a few narrated anecdotes (i.e. stories in Holy Quran and the Shari'at-e-Muhammadia which is narrated from the Holy Prophet pbuh - Compiler)and that the 'WAHI' has lagged behind instead of going ahead......hence such a religion deserves to be called satanic rather than divine religion." (Zamima-e-Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya, Part V, Roohani Khazain, Vol. 21, p. 306)
"How absurd and false it is to believe that after the Holy Prophet (pbuh) the door of the divine 'wahi' has been closed for ever and there is no hope of it in the future till the Day of Resurrection - just worship the stories. Can a religion having no direct trace of Almighty Allah be called a religion? . . . . . I say, by Almighty God, that in this age there is no one more fed up than myself with such a religion. I name such a religion as Satanic religion and not Rehmani (divine) and I believe that such religion guides towards Hell and keeps one blind in life and till death." (Zamima-e-Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya, Part V, page 183; Roohani Khazain, Vol. 21, p. 354)
