The first Annual Conference of the Jamaat took place in 1891 in Qadian. Thus 1991 marked the 100th Annual Conference. This was a historic event; therefore Sayyedna Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih IV decided to attend the Jalsa himself. Since 1946 this was the first occasion that the soil of Qadian was once again blessed with the presence of a Caliph.
Thousands of Ahmadis from India, the UK, Germany, the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, Indonesia, & Africa converged upon Qadian. They met Huzoor and visited holy sites. Huzoor’s speeches were televised all over the world. Visitors also offered supplications at the tomb of the Promised Messiah(as).
