Synopsis:
  • In 1984 the Islamic government of Pakistan set aside all Islamic injuctions and took upon itself the burden of depriving the Ahmadi Muslims of many basic human rights including religious social freedoms. In an attempt to justify this action, the government of Pakistan published a so-called White Paper under the title 'Qadiyaniyyat - Islam kay liya Sangin Khatrah' (Qadiyaniyyat - A Grave Threat to Islam).
  • Although there was nothing new in this so-called White Paper and the Jama'at literature already included detailed answers to all the issues which were raised, nevertheless Hadrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih IV, the then Imam of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at, answered these allegations in a series of Friday sermons.
  • Hadrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih IV(rh) delivered this sermon on February 15, 1985 at the Fadl Mosque London and answered the allegations dealing with the true Islamic concept of Jihad by quoting the Holy Qur'an, the history of early Muslims, the writings of the Promised Messiah(as) and other historical references.
