The mulla of the Ahlul Hadith sect, so-called ‘Allama’ Ehsan Ellahi Zaheer, lied upon the founder of the Barelwi sect, mulla Ahmad Reza Khan, by writing that the latter studied under the elder brother of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, namely, Mirza Ghulam Qadir:
یہاں یہ بات قابل ذکر ہے کہ ان کا استاد مرزا غلام قادر بیگ مرزا غلام احمد قادیانی کا بھائی تھا۔
“It is worth mentioning here that his teacher Mirza Ghulam Qadir Baig was the brother of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani.”
Reference: Barelwiyyat: Tarikh o Aqa’id; p. 37
The truth is that Mirza Ghulam Qadir, the elder brother of Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani, was not a religious teacher or scholar, but a landlord involved in worldly affairs, who died in 1883. The teacher of Mulla Ahmad Reza Barelwi, however, bearing a similar name but with the surname ‘Baig’ was an altogether different individual. Either the stupid mulla E. E. Zaheer didn’t research properly before publishing such a blunder, or he blatantly lied upon Ahmad Reza Khan Barelwi in a shameless attempt to bring disrepute to him.
