[A LETTER TO THE PROMISED MESSIAH(AS)]
1اَلْحَمْدُ لِلہِ نَحْمَدُہٗ وَنَسْتَعِیْنُہٗ وَنُصَلِّیْ عَلٰی رَسُوْلِہِ الْکَرِیْمِ
Your Holiness, Ghulam Ahmad, the Source of Blessing, Reformer of the Age, Honourable Scholar, and Champion of the Faith of the Holy Prophet(sa)
Peace be upon you. It is submitted that for some time the Christians of the town of Jandiala have launched a vigorous campaign and today, on 11 April 1893, I have received a letter from them by registered post, on behalf of Dr Martyn Clark of Amritsar, a copy of which is being sent for your kind perusal, attached to the back of this letter.
The Christians have strongly urged the Muslims of Jandiala to invite their scholars and other religious leaders, and hold a convention to determine the true religion or abstain from criticising Christianity in the future.
Thus, I humbly submit to your Holiness that since the majority of the Muslims in Jandiala are weak and poor, therefore, I respectfully request your honourable self, for the sake of Allah, to come to the aid of the Muslims of Jandiala, for otherwise the Muslim community as a whole would stand blemished.
Please also have a look at the letter received from the Christians and provide written guidance as to what reply we should give; we shall comply however you may so direct.
– End –
Waiting for an expedient reply,
Muhammad Baksh Pandha
