Notes: Propagation of Islam in India

The Light (Pakistan), 1st February 1923 Issue (Vol. 2, No. 3, pp. 1–2)

The news that 450,000 Muslim Raj­puts of the United Provinces are ready to revert to Hinduism has after all awakened the Muslims of India to the necessity and importance of the propagation of Islam. It is a healthy sign and let us hope that some good will come out of it.

The Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat-i-Islam is already busy in this sacred task and its missionaries are working in India and abroad; that is, England, Germany and America.

The Anjuman has also now sent missionaries to work in one or two centres in the vicinity of Delhi and Agra to enlighten the Muslim Rajputs who are said to be ready to become Hindus, and to open missions there.

We hope that other religious societies of the country will also respond to this urgent call and carry on the work throughout India in a systematic and methodical way.

With a view to expedite the work and enhance its efficiency we think it will be better if the various Muslim societies which undertake the propagation work in any part of the country should, by mutual consent, divide the districts among themselves and send their respective workers there. This will not only increase the efficiency of the work, but will also avoid any possible difficulties which may arise from the different workers working in one and the same place.
