Qadianis/Ahmadis started sending letters to Dr. Rashid saying that Mirza Tahir has won the mubahila because of this death Dr. Iqbal. Why? Because he made the cartoons of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani. Thus he died according to this revelation of Mirza:
SubHanAllah! What logic! The person who wrote the book (Syed Abdul Hafeez Shah) is alive and well and still engaged in AntiAhmadiyya Campaign, the person who translated the book, is actively engaged in exposing the fraud of Ahmadiyyat all over the world and above all who accepted the mubahila, nothing happens to him and upon the death of an unrelated person, they claim that they have won the mubahila. I feel sorry and pity their desparation. And this is not the end of the story. In their haste to proclaim victory in mubahila, they decieved their followers and others and announced the death of the person who made the cartoons, taking advantage of the similarlity in names." 'I (Allah) will humiliate him who intends to humiliate you.' Dr Iqbal Muhammad also added several cartoons and displayed his pride by autographing them with Iqbal on every cartoon." (AlNida International - March 1998 issue)
The lie thus propagated was a pathetic attempt by Mirza Tahir and his propaganda machinery to decietfully convince his followers as well as general public of the victory in Mubahila. What a humiliation for a leader of this creed who claims a conversion rate of several millions per year. Is this how he is gaining converts - by lies and deception?
Mr Iqbal Ahmed, the Caricaturist of Anti Ahmadiyya Movement, has given a notice to Mirza Tahir Ahmad Qadiani, Ameer Jamaat Ahmadiyya and Mr Shahzad Ahmad, Editor AlNida International, demanding an unconditional public apology and US$50,000 compensation for causing mental anguish. Following is the text of his letter.

Mr. Mirza Tahir
Sub: News Item in Nida International about ;the death of Iqbal Ahmed The Cartoonist of Anti Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam.
I have taken a very serious note of a news item that appeared in one of your Jamat’s publication about my death. The said magazine states:
“A few years ago Dr. Iqbal translated the book called 'Two in One' written by Syed Abdul Hafeez Shah of Thatta Pakistan, from English into Arabic (The Translation from Urdu to English has been done by one of his colleagues, Dr. Syed Rashid Ali). This book uses very filthy and impertinent language about the founder of Ahmadiyya Community, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian ... Dr. Iqbal Muhammad also added several cartoons and displayed his pride by autographing them with ‘Iqbal” on every cartoon ... Almighty Allah showed a powerful sign on that day by causing Dr. Iqbal to die a despicable death …. The MIGHTY SIGN WHICH ALLAH MANIFESTED IN RESPECT OF THE TRANSLATOR OF THE BOOK “TWO IN ONE" IS A CLEAR SIGN OF SUCCESS IN THE MUBAHILA.” (Al Nida International March 1998)
In your desparate attempt to somehow show to your public that you have won the challenge of Mubahila 1998, you have intentionally and deliberately misinformed the public through your said newspaper. I am the cartoonist Iqbal Ahmed who had made all those cartoons in Two in One and in all other publications of Anti Ahmadiyya Movement. You have published in the news item that the caricaturist, that is me, is dead and that this death has come to me as a providential punishment for publishing Mirza’s Cartoons.
For your information let me point out to you that by the Grace of Allah till this date I am very much alive and well and till the day I will live, Inshallah I will continue with my mission of portraying Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani, the Liar’s life in my caricatures.
However your deliberate deception has caused great anguish and psychological distress for me. My family and near relatives are greatly disturbed as well. I demand an unconditional written public apology in the news media within the period of two months from the date of this letter and a paymant of US$50,000/= as compensation for the inconvenience, anguish and distress caused to me by the publication of this false news. Failing which I will be compelled to proceed with futher legal action, the entire cost of which will be borne by you.
Awaiting your early
Wassalam on those who follow the hidayah
