1974 Declaration by World Muslim League (Rabita al-Alam al-Islami)
by Mohammad Bashir
World Muslim League held its annual conference at Makkah Al-Mukaramma Saudi Arabia from 14th to 18th of Rabiul Awwal 1394 H (April 1974) in which 140 delegations of Muslim countries and organizations from all over the world participated. I (Mohammad Bashir) too was there in this Conference alongwith the other journalists from all over the world. The Conference unanimously adopted the following Resolution regarding Qadianism.
Qadianism or Ahmadiyyat: It is a subversive movement against Islam and the Muslim world, which falsely and decietfully claims to be an Islamic sect; who under the guise of Islam and for the sake of mundane interests contrives and plans to damage the very foundations of Islam. Its eminent deviations from the basic Islamic principles are as follows:
Its founder claimed that he was a Prophet.
They deliberately distort the meanings of the verses of the Holy Quran.
They decalred that Jehad has been obolished.
Qadianism was originally fostered by the British imperialism. Hence it has been flourishing under her flag. This movement has completely been disloyal to and dishonest in affairs of the Muslim Ummah. Rather, it has been loyal to Imperialism and Zionism. It has deep associations and cooperation with the anti Islamic forces and teachings especially through the following nefarious methods:
Construction of mosques with the assistance of the anti Islamic forces wherin the misleading Qadiani thoughts are imparted to the people.
Opening of schools institutions and orphanages wherein the people are taught and trained as to how they can be more anti Islamic in their activities. They also published the corrupted versions of the Holy Quran in different local and international languages.
In order to combat these dangers, the Conference recommends the following measures:
All the Muslim organization in the world must keep a vigilant eye on all the activities of Qadianisin their respective countries; to confine them all strictly to their schools, institutions and orphanages only. Moreover he Muslims of the world be shown the true picture of Qadianism and be briefed of their various tactics so that the Muslims of the world be saved from their designs .
They must be declared non Muslims and ousted form the fold of Islam. And be barred to enter the Holy lands.
There must be no dealings with the Qadianis. They must be coycotted socially , economically and culturally Nor they be married with or to Nor they be allowed to be buried in the Muslims graveyards. And they be treated like other non Muslims.
All the Muslim countries must impose restrictions on the activities of the claimant of Prophethood Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani’s followers; must declare them a non Muslim minority must not etrust them them with any post of responsibility in any Muslim country.
The alterations effected by them in the Holy Quran must be made public and the people be briefed of them and all these be prohibited for further publication.
All such groups as are deviators from islam must be treated at par with the Qadianis.

Anti-Ahmadiyah campaign escalating

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Radical Muslims have intensified their campaign for the government to ban Ahmadiyah and for followers of the sect to return to the fold of mainstream Islam.

Police in Ahmadiyah enclaves across the archipelago have beefed up security in anticipation of attacks on Ahmadis and their property.

Opponents of Ahmadiyah, which started in Indonesia in 1925 and has no record of violence, have apparently exploited a recent government decree which requires Ahmadis to cease religious activities in public.

Radical Muslims who consider Ahmadiyah “heretical” have threatened to take the law into their hands unless the government formally bans the sect whose following in Indonesia is estimated to number more than 200,000.

In Tangerang, just west of Jakarta, hundreds of people of all ages picketed Ahmadiyah’s An Nur Mosque in Babakan subdistrict, demanding its closure. They said the mosque had been used since it was founded in 1960 to spread heretical teachings of Islam.

Nurhasan Idris, a local neighborhood chief, said the Ahmadiyah activities did not cause any trouble but added that residents were afraid their property would be attacked by mobs from outside the hamlet, as has already happened in other places.

“That’s why residents demanded the Ahmadis carry out their religious activities elsewhere,” Idris told The Jakarta Post.

Attacks by outsiders on Ahmadiyah property have reportedly occurred in Sukabumi, West Java. Last month, an Ahmadiyah mosque in Parakansalak hamlet was destroyed.

Tension in Sukabumi rose after mobs forcibly closed down four Ahmadiyah mosques in the neighboring Cianjur.

“We have increased the number of personnel in highly vulnerable areas such as Parakansalak and Warung Kiara,” Sukabumi Police chief Snr. Comr. Guntor Gaffar told Antara news agency Friday.

Parakansalak, known as a local Ahmadiyah enclave, has been guarded by between 20 and 30 police officers around the clock, Guntor said.

In South Sulawesi, members of the fundamentalist Islam Defenders Front (FPI), which has gained infamy for its violent acts, shut down the local Ahmadiyah headquarters in the capital Makassar on Friday.

There they broke up a police cordon, entered the complex and put up a “Closed down by the South Sulawesi FPI” sign in the office before they peacefully dispersed.

The campaign against Ahmadiyah also found its way to the North Sumatra capital of Medan on Friday. Local radical Muslim leaders led a mass gathering at Al-Mashun Grand Mosque, where they repeated their demand that the government ban Ahmadiyah once and for all.

In his fiery speech, cleric Syarifin Maloko also demanded that police in Jakarta unconditionally release FPI leader Rizieq Shihab.

Rizieq was arrested in Jakarta for his alleged role in the FPI attack on participants of a pro-tolerance rally at the National Monument (Monas) in Jakarta on June 1, in which dozens of people were injured, some seriously.

The Medan rally also demanded that police arrest leaders of the National Alliance for the Freedom of Religion and Faith who led the Monas gathering and, according to the FPI, incited the violence.
