 Ahmadiyya's - Muslim, Heretic or Paid Agents By MBI Munshi
It is my opinion and belief that there is an alternative to the for or against debate or the Islamist vs. Ahmadiyya feud which seems to have consumed much of the time of the makers of the documentary.
The question left unanswered by the documentary was whether the Ahmadiyya's are part of the wind or of the fire or of neither.
There is no evidence however that the Ahmadiyya's are paid agents of any State but the same cannot necessarily be said for the supporters of their cause.

 The Ahmadiyya/Qadiani Movement
The Ahmadiyyas are followers of a certain Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian who lay claim to prophethood and used fabricated Hadith reports and twisted meanings of some Qur'anic verses to support himself.
Another example of the Ahmadiyya's rejection of the Qur'an and Sunnah is their contention that Jesus died, and that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was an incarnation of Jesus.
On this, Islam is uncomprising, hence this error of the Ahmadiyyas is the foremost indication of their exit from Islam.

The Ahmadiyyas maintain that a solar eclipse may be witnessed either during the 27th, or on the 28th, or on the 29th of a lunar month.
If the Ahmadiyyas wish to base their decisions on observations made just at a specified point (like Qadian, where haze may hide a young moon), then lunar eclipses will sometimes be witnessed on the 12th of an Islamic month.
The Ahmadiyyas interpret those words to mean 'the beginning (and middle) of the possible range': see references in note 1.

 Bangladesh: Breach of Faith: II. History of the Ahmadiyya Community
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (the official name of the community) is a contemporary messianic movement founded in 1889 by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1839–1908), who was born in the small village of Qadian in Punjab, India.
The Ahmadiyya community is also referred to derogatorily by some as the “Qadiani”; (or “Kadiyani”) community, a term derived from the birthplace of the founder of the movement.
