Drug misuse and addiction has become a worldwide problem, more so in recent years, particularly amongst the young people. It is blamed for much of the crime and violence, has the potential for destroying the whole family and is a cause of great concern for the authorities, social workers, police as well as teachers and doctors. Opium and its biological and synthetic derivatives and Cocaine are the most commonly misused substances.

Clinton's Anti-Drug Strategy

Various Governments have made legislation to control the abuse, manufacture, supply, possession, prescription and import/export of 'Controlled Drugs'. President Bill Clinton, laying out his Anti-Drug Strategy has asked Cogress to earmark $15.1 billion for drug prevention efforts in fiscal 1997. Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey, the national drug control policy director, says there are about 11 million drug users in United States. "This is a decade-long attempt to address a complex phenomena," he said on NBC News' "Meet the Press." The new strategy focuses on youth drug prevention and education as well as law enforcement and thwarting DRUG SMUGGLING, McCaffrey added. (Reuters: Monday April 29th 1996)

Ahmadiyya Movement claims to be the Champions of Islam, portraying an exemplary character of a good muslim. Founder of Ahmadiyya Movement, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, claimed to be the PROPHET, MAHDI, PROMISED MESSIAH, SON of GOD and GOD etc. etc. As such his life and character has a direct bearing on the lives of all Ahmadis/Qadianis who consider him as their SPIRITUAL GUIDE and Re-INCARNATION of HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbuh).

In the following sections it will be my endeavour to examine the life of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani with regard to the question of DRUG ABUSE and illustrate some examples of QADIANI/AHMADI involvement in DRUG TRAFFICKING during recent times.

1985: Big Cache of Drugs Seized in Rice Bags at Dubai Port

Daily Jang, Karachi, 25th April 1985.

On 14th April 1984, a cargo ship of Pakistan National Shipping Corporation arrived at Dubai Port from Karachi. It contained consignment of RICE. From one of its containers, 1 TON HEROINE was recovered. This consignment of rice was sent by the Rice Export Corporation of Pakistan to a company in Dubai. There was clear proof that Qadianis were involved in this Drug Smuggling.

Nothing could be done about these big fishes and as usual the small fishes recieved the punishment. Khatme Nabuwwat, Weekly Magazine, No. 45 10-16 May 1985.

1996: Drugs Siezed in Rice Bags bound for Birmingham, UK.

Marijuana discovered in the Rice Packets due to be exported to Britain by the company owned by the Brother of Sardar Aseef Ahmad Ali

On 25th April 1996 the Examining Officer of the Customs Dept., Export Section was performing his usual duty at Birth No. TR-5, Karachi East Wharf, Kemari. During his duty Export Papers for Container No. FLXU-9-201323 came to him with Shipping Bill No. 22796 dated 23rd April '96. According to the papers, the container was full of 950 packets of Basmati Rice being sent ot Mr Wippolyte of Ebony Food International, 55 Diagonal Road, Acocks Green, Birmingham B27 6ST UK.

During examination, while poking at one of the bags deep down in the end, the packet rupture and the Examining Officer could not believe his eyes when he saw slices of Marijuana started falling out. A total of 119 Kg of Marijuana was packed very systematically amongst the packets of Rice so that after every 150 packets of rice there was a 1 kilogram packet of Marijuana. The Packets were sprayed with Anti-Sniffing Spray to prevent Customs trained Sniffer Dogs from detecting them. The markings on the rice packets and marijuana packets belonged to the identical serail numbers indicating that the Smuggling Party from Lahore to Birmingham was the same and was capable of seperating them at their leisure without fear of being caught.

The Commerce Reporter of Urdu Daily 'Nawa-e-Waqt' reached on the spot and took photographs of the whole consignment. According to his report which he filed to his Newspaper's office, 210 kilograms of Marijuana was recovered from these Rice Packets by the Assistant Collector of Customs. Customs arrested three persons including the clearing and forwarding agent. The Clearing Agent informed the authorities that the Sealed Container came from the Indus Rice Mill which belongs to Sardar Haroon Ahmad, brother of a Federal Minister and that he has nothing to do with the Drug Smuggling and should be released on bail. He was however denied bail. On the other hand, severe pressure is being applied on the Customs to hush the matter.

This report was correct in every respect except that on the first day Custom Authorities declared that the weight of Marijuana was 210 kg, but next day when F.I.R. was recorded, the figure was 119 kg. According to reports, as soon as Marijuana was hauled, Custom Appraisers informed their higher authorities. On the other hand, the other party was also not some small group. It was the Rice Mill of the brother of Sardar Aseef Ahmad Ali, the Foreign Minister and an important member of the Chatta-Peoples Party PDF allaince of the ruling elite in Pakistan. Thus the offices of Indus Rice Mill closed and its Executives disappeared. For the next four days there was no trace of any of the responsible person of Indus Rice Mill. During this period Sardar Haroon Ahmad and his brother, Sardar Aseef Ahmad, the Foreign Minister used all their influence in the government to keep them from being arrested or any other official paper work to be completed against them. Rather they tried to distort the whole issue by using their influence and these attempts are still going on.

Sardar Aseef Ahmad and his 'Superior' friends were so determined to sway the Customs Authorities that their agents kept trying till late to prevent Daily Nawa-e-Waqt from publishing this story next day. Despite their lucrative offers, the whole incident was reported in the newspaper on 26th April.

In anticipation of the the disgrace and embarassment that comes in the wake of such a crime, the whole machinery of the People's Government and its heirarchy in Islamabad came into action. Initially the entire blame was put on the poor clearing agent, who was arrested. However, as soon as his company learnt of the incident, they took necessary action and got him released.

After the failure of this attempt, the case was transfered to Federal Investigation Authority and the blame was shifted on to the TCS Courier Service who transfered the container from Lahore to Karachi. Its Regional Manager, Shafqat Ali was arrested on the charges that his agency has put Marijuana during the transfer of the container from Lahore to Karachi. The news was released to the press that Custom Authorities have started investigating the involvement of a courier service in drug smuggling. Point worth noting was that in the F.I.R. the name of the Exporter, Indus Valley Rice Mill, was totally absent, according to the wishes of higher authorities. F.I.A. pointed out his flaw in the filed FIR on which basis the court might doubt the intentions of the authorities. The poor representative of the courier service was thus released.

Thus the Customs Authorities were pressurised into filing an FIR on afternoon of 26th April in which in place of first accused, without writing the name and address of any one, simply 'An Employee of the Exporter' was mentioned. In other words in blatant disregard to the Law and Justice, instead of writing the name of the real culprit and the owners of Export Company, it was decided to make a scapegoat of one of the employees. In the second place was the name of Mr Shafqat Ali of courier service, in the third place Mr W Hippolyte and in the last place, 'AND OTHERS'.

The effeciency and honesty of the FIA, Karachi was not to the liked in Islamabad and the case was transfered to FIA, Lahore; when their working was also not found to be according to the entire satisfaction of the elite concerned, the case was transferred to the Special Investigation Unit under the direct care of Director General, FIA, Islamabad. Now the whole game will be played in Islamabad in the presence of its influential players. It is interesting to note that the majority of the employees of Indus Valley Rice Mill are the relatives of the Honourable Foreign Minister. Another interesting discovery made by FIA Lahore was that the same kind of rice bags with Marijuana packed in the same professional manner were seized from the Rice Mill in Lahore

Pir Binyameen's Press Conference:

Sardar Aseef's/Haroon's Statement:

Mr Gohar Ayub Khan:

Takbeer, International Urdu Weekly, No. 20 dated 16th May, 1996; Nasir Mahmood.

[PS: It is worth noting that after the first few reports there has been a complete blackout on the news about this incident.]

The Qadiani Connection:

Mr Manzoor Ilahi Malik Awan of the Weekly Khatme Nabuwwat Newspaper has repoted that both Mr Sardar Aseef Ahmad and Mr Naseerullah Baber, the Interior Minister, of Pakistan are AHMADIs/QADIANIs. Another unpublished survey suggests that out of all three top posts in Civil, Foreign and Military Services of Pakistan, two are occupied by Qadianis/Ahmadis/Lahoris. Pakistan is one of the important conduit for smuggling drugs to the West. With such influential QADIANIS/AHMADIS and their sympethisers at the helm of the affairs in Pakistan, this case probably reflects just the tip of the iceberg.


Since 1980s there has been a mass exodus of members of the Ahmadiyya Movement to various European and American destinations. Because of the Qadiani/Ahmadiyya propaganda of so-called 'Persecution of Ahmadis in Pakistan', Western Governments are liberally offering them asylum on humanitarian grounds. It is an interesting coincidence that the flow of Drugs from East to the West has also increased dramatically during the same period.

Ahmadiyya Movement is spending hugh amount of money on the propagation of its false doctrines in the name of Islam. Some of its projects are:

Ordinary Qadianis/Ahmadis are led to believe that it is the contribution from their hard earned money which is running these projects. They deny vehemantly that the Un-Islamic Forces are contributing towards the efforts of Ahmadiyyat.

It is a well-known fact that several people take to Drug Smuggling just to make rapid money and become millionaire overnight. With every case that is brought to light, there are several more which are never caught. We request the Anti-Drug Authorities in Europe, United States and other parts of the world to re-examine the entire racket in the light of above information and try to find a connection between Drug Smuggling and Large Scale immigration of Qadianis/Ahmadis to Western countries.
