Ofenbach, Germany (Special Reporter) One of the central leaders of Ahmadiyya/Qadiani Jamaat, Shaikh Raheel Ahmad embraced Islam in Masjid Tawheed Islamic Center, alongwith his son-in-law and nine other members of his family. The cermony of his embracing his Islam was held in the mosque of Ofenbach Islamic Center. Addressing on this occasion, Shaikh Raheel Ahmad said that: "I was a born qadiani (ahmadi) and after studying for several years and pondering over it, he has come to the conclusion that Jamaat Ahmadiyya Qadiani group is not a sect of Islam, rather it is a corporation which collects money in the name of religion. I have held several posts in the Jamaat for a long time, and for this reason several things have come into my knowledge, due to which I thought it more appropriate that I should leave this Jamaat and break my relation with this system of exploitation in the name of religion and come into the fold of true service of Holy Prophet Muhamade Arabi SallAllaho alaihe wassalam". Speaking on this occasion, the leader of Khatme Nabuwwat Germany and the Preacher of Tawheed Masjid, Maulana Mushtaq-ur-Rehman congratulated Shaikh Raheel Ahmad and other nine reverted Muslims on embracing Islam. He said that the foundations of Qadiani religion have become hollowed and large number of important Qadiani leaders are embracing Islam. He also invited the present Qadiani leader, Mirza Masroor Ahmad, and the entire Qadiani Jamaat to embrace Islam.
