History

1914, Lahore (Pakistan). Derives from Sadar Anjuman Ahmadiyya, founded in Qadain (India) by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, a Mujaddid (reformer) of the 14th century Hijra and Maseeh-i-Mauood (the Promised Messiah). He died in 1908 and was succeeded by Maulana Noor-ud-Din as the first religious head of the community. Upon the latter's death in 1914, the Jamaat split into 2 sections. The Secretary of the Jamaat, Maulana Muhammad Ali, together with 7 of the original 14 members of the Executive Committee formed by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, went to Lahore and founded Ahmadiyya Society for the Propagation of Islam -- Ahmadiyya Anjuman-i-Ishaat-i-Islam Lahore, also referred to as Lahore Group of Ahmadies. Current title adopted in 1985, to meet legal and constitutional requirements of Pakistan. Also referred to as Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam.
