On the turn of nineteenth century, Hazrat Ghulam Ahmed (as) of Qadian, India gave Breaking news of death of Jesus in the era when— people were of a strong belief that after Jesus was taken down from the cross, God made Jesus ascend to heaven. But to declare him a dead man at this later stage on this earth was great news. Hazrat Ghulam Ahmed (as) revealed that he is doing so, under the divine guidance of God Almighty. Indeed it was a Hercules task under taken by the Promised Messiah (as) to make the people believe otherwise. All the later oppositions, seen mounting against him and his followers called Ahmadies stems from this one single claim….which also made his and his Ahmadiyya Jammat position so controversial.

But before we attempt discuss any further, I would like to draw the kind attention of the readers to the following:

Sir David Attenborough is Britain’s best-known natural history film-maker. His career as a naturalist and broadcaster has spanned nearly five decades and there are very few places on the globe that he has not visited.

Over the last 25 years he has established himself as the world’s leading natural history programme maker with several landmark BBC series, including: Life on Earth (1979), The Living Planet (1984), The Trials of Life (1990), The Private Life of Plants (1995), The Life of Birds (1998), The Life of Mammals (2002) and Life in the Undergrowth (2005).

‘The final chapter in the Life series, Life in Cold Blood is surely a grand finale to David’s survey of life on earth’.

David Attenborough is the man who is known as authority on the subject of study of nature. He has got a great service to his credit that he delivered enormous amount of knowledge and wisdom to this world. But lately in an interview, when he was asked about his belief that whether or not his research makes him believe in God more strong? His plane answer was (which he still maintains) that: ‘I wish I could believe in God’, as it had “never really occurred to me to believe in God”.

One is astonished that how unfortunate it is for a man that any research or any kind of exploration may not place someone at higher mantle or make him able to attain any nearness to God till the mighty and wise so wills. Alas; the entire research of David Attenborough which may be considered as a great source of knowledge and wisdom for others could not benefit him and is rendered useless. But how befitting the verdict of God Almighty is proved correct here, that; to lead people to right path rest with God Almighty only. Quran says:“Then Allah lets go astray whom He wills, and guides whom He wills. And He is the Mighty, the Wise.”[14:4]

Likewise I see that our brothers; who prefer to be called—the defenders of Prophet hood (‘Tahafaz e khatem e Nabuwat’), —reportedly, they carry out so much of research of the books of Hazrat Ghulam Ahmed (as) that even good Ahmadi researcher are put to shame. Believably; they spend lot of their time in reading the books but sadly rather than picking any word of wisdom and light there in; they only pick at random few out of context words—-which they may use to muddle the contentious issues. Their intention remains as how best they could create confusion so that people be kept away from the truth and misguided.

Verily; to guide to right path is God’s own prerogative. He knows best to whom he must give guidance. This is a matter of soul searching that Allah says; “Those who disbelieve and hinder others from the way of Allah have certainly strayed far away.” Quran [4:167]
