Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat was established in Indonesia in 1925. Maulana Rahmat Ali was the first missionary who built the first mosque in 1937. Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih the Fourth is the first Caliph to visit the largest Islamic country. Huzoor’s visit lasted from June 19th to July 11th, 2000.
During the visit Huzoor laid the foundation stone of a mosque as well as a secondary school. On June 28th, 2000 Huzoor had a cordial meeting with the President of Indonesia, and later addressed a large crowd of TV, Radio, & press reporters.
During the visit Huzoor also met with Chairman National Assembly, Mr. Ameen al-Raees.
