Another Central Leader Mirza Abu Bakr became BahaiLondon (Special Reporter): Mirza AbuBakr, a leader of Jamaat Ahmadiyya of US and Qadiani IT expert webmaster, have left Qadianiyat/Ahmadiyyat and denounced Qadiani religion and its responsibilites. He has left Ahmadiyyat and embraced Bahai religion. In the last one month, this is the second big leader of Jamaat Ahmadiyya who has left the Jamaat. He was also incharge of Qadiani websites and have authored 3 books. On international level Qadianis are facing severe crisis. Most informed sources have revealed that after Shaikh Raheal Ahmad's exodus from Jamaat Ahmadiyya Germany and reverting to Islam, Mirza Abu Bakr who is residing in US and playing an important role in preaching Qadianism, has also denounced Ahmadiyyat and now he has embraced Bahai religion. According to sources, Mirza Abu Bakr has been staying in US for the last 27 years, and he was considered an expert in designing and maintaining Qadiani websites. Through information technology, he had attracted hundreds of people towards Qadianism. According to sources he has sent his decision to denounce Qadianism and resignation regarding his responsibilities related to IT given to him by the central leadership. According to Qadiani sources, he has mentioned in his resignation that he no longer believes in Qadianism, he considers Bahaism as his saviour, therefore he is resigning from all his responsibilities and denounce all beliefs (of Qadianism). He has further written that: I am no longer concerned whether Jesus has died or he was put on the cross; I consider Bahai religion as a true path. According to sources, he has further written that he is no longer convinced about Islam and does not consider any Islamic belief to be correct (Ma'azAllah).
It should be noted that after the exodus of Shaikh Raheel Ahmad from the German Jamaat, now exodus of Mirza Abu Bakr from Jamaat Ahmadiyya is a blow and cause of crisis for the Qadiani creed. Mirza Abu Bakr is the author of many books and he had made IT an important tool for the propagation of Ahmadiyyat. He had also created a religious website (Tomb of Jesus). Currently he is residing in Chicago. According to sources, Mirza Masroor Ahmad and Central leadership are extremely worried about the exodus of these internationally high-profile Qadianis from Jamaat. Whereas the majority of Qadianis attribute it to the lack of leadership qualitites in Mirza Masroor Ahmad.
Meanwhile, Ummat had contacted Maulana Abdur Rehman Bawa, an international preacher and leader of Khatme Nabuwwat Academy, London UK and he confirmed the news of Mirza Abu Bakr's exodus from Jamaat Ahmadiyya and joining Bahai faith. He expressed sorrow that Mirza Abu Bakr had preferred Bahai faith over Islam. He said that like Sh Raheel Ahmad, Mirza Abu Bakr should have reverted to Islam. He said that departure of prominent Qadianis from Ahmadiyyat indicate that repulsion to Qadianism is increasing and most Qadianis are hostage at the hands of its religious leadership, now they had found a chance to disengage from this jamaat of heretical beliefs. Secretary General of International Khatme Nabuwwat Movement and Munazir-e-Khatme Nabuwwat, Maulana Manzoor Ahmad Chinioti said that Qadianis have been wailing at this situation. He said that he had challenged Mirza Masroor Ahmad and other Qadianis for a prayer-duel (mubahila) but they could not dare to accept it. This is an admission of their defeat; even now Qadianis should force Mirza Masroor Ahmad to accept this challenge of mubahila. If he runs away, then all Qadianis should denounce this false creed, like Shaikh Raheel Ahmad and embrace the true path. He congratulated Shaikh Raheel Ahmad and appealed to all Muslims to cooperate with Shaikh Raheel Ahmad and his family.
Note from Dr. Rashid: It is worth mentioning that Mirza Abu Bakr embraced Ahmadiyyat thinking that it is true Islam. however what he saw in Ahmadiyyat disillusioned him not only from Ahmadiyyat but also from Islam and he preferred to join Bahai faith. Similar this happened with Usman Barry, an Irishman, who embraced Ahmadiyyat thinking that it was Islam. However when visited Rabwah and Qadian during the time of Mirza Nasir Ahmad, the 3rd Khalifa, the myth was shattered and reverted back to Christianity. However since he was in search of truth, Allah guided him back to the fold of Islam and AlHamdolillah he is now a devout Muslim and lives in United Arab Emirates. We hope and pray that if Mirza Abu Bakr is really in search of truth, then Allah will guide him as well to Islam one day. Ameen.
