The British Government and Jihad
by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as)
An English translation of the Urdu booklet, Government Angreizi aur Jihad
- What is Jihad and why was Islam forced to resort to defending itself in its early history?
- Why have mistaken notions about jihad taken root in the minds of some Muslim groups and what part have Muslim clerics and Christian priests played in this process?
- Is it legitimate for a Muslim to revolt against a government that maintains law and order and permits religious freedom?
These questions, which have become the focus of worldwide attention today, were answered over one hundred years ago with God-given guidance and understanding by the man who claimed to be the Promised Messiah.
