1 J ESUS IN I NDIA Jesus in India

2 I NTRODUCTION PUBLISHER’S NOTES Jesus in India

3 J ESUS IN I NDIA Jesus in India is the English version of Masih Hindustan Mein, an Urdu treatise written by the Holy Founder of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi The main thesis expounded in this treatise is Jesus' deliverance from death on the Cross and his subsequent journey to India in quest of the lost tribes of Israel whom he had to gather into his fold as foretold by Jesus himself Jesus in India 1835-1908 Page iii

4 ‘ J ESUS IN I NDIA ’ PROVIDES EVIDENCE THAT Jesus started his journey from Jerusalem and passing through Nasibus and Iran, Jesus reached Afghanistan Where he met the Jews who had settled there after their escape from the bonds of Nebuchadnezzar From Afghanistan Jesus went to Kashmir where some Israelite tribes had also settled He made Kashmir his home where he died and is buried in Srinagar, Kashmir Jesus in India Page iii

5 A IMS AND OBJECTIVE OF WRITING THE BOOK To dispel serious misconceptions about the earlier and later life of Jesus (on whom be peace) by authentic evidence Page 1 Jesus in India

6 M ESSIAH OF THE TIME I alone am the light of this age of darkness He who follows me will be saved from falling into the pits prepared by the Devil for those who walk in the dark Jesus in India Page 12-13

7 J ESUS IN I NDIA ; THE FACTS REVEALED I shall try to prove in this book that Jesus did not die on the cross, nor did he go up to the heavens; nor would he ever again come down to the earth The fact of the matter is that Jesus died at the age of 120 years at Srinagar, Kashmir, where his tomb is still to be found in the Khan Yar quarter Jesus in India Page 14

8 S UMMARY Jesus in India

9 S UMMARY OF B IBLICAL TESTIMONIES Jesus in India Page 17-18 Jesus came out of the tomb (bowels of the earth) alive and went to his tribes who lived in the eastern countries Jesus had to make this journey, for the divine object of his mission of meeting the lost tribes of Israel who had settled in different parts of India Jesus did in fact travelled East and discovered the lost sheep of Israel among Buddhists, who ultimately accepted him the way Jonah was accepted by his people These were the ten tribes of the Israelites who 721 years* before Jesus, had been taken captive and forced to leave Samaria by Shalmaneser, King of Assur. They eventually came to India and settled in various parts of the country

10 S UMMARY OF Q UR ’ ANIC TESTIMONIES Jesus in India It is true that Jesus was placed on the cross, and that the intention was to kill him God caused things to happen which saved Jesus from death on the cross Jesus escaped and graced the land of the Punjab with his presence, where he met the ten lost tribes of Israel Jesus was accorded great esteem and respect in this land

11 S UMMARY OF TESTIMONIES FROM A HADITH Jesus in India Old age The Holy Prophet (pbuh) said that Jesus lived to an advanced age of 125 Travel Jesus continuously travelled from one country to another Save faith Jesus, the Messiah, had to flee from his country to save his faith

12 S UMMARY OF E VIDENCE FROM MEDICAL LITERATURE Jesus in India Eminent physicians of religions such as Christians, Jews, Magians and Muslims, recorded that this ointment was prepared for Jesus by the disciples The ministry of Jesus lasted only 3 and a1/2 years, and during this time no accident or injury, except for the trauma of the cross, has been recorded The historical importance of this ointment was not understood until now The Holy Prophet ( pbuh) prophesied that at the hand of the Promised Messiah the 'breaking of the cross' was to be brought about Meaning that at the time of the Promised Messiah, God would create conditions which would lay bare the truth about the crucifixion It was inevitable, therefore, that heaven should withhold such incontrovertible proof and conclusive evidence until the coming of the Promised Messiah

13 S UMMARY OF T ESTIMONIALS FROM HISTORICAL I SLAMIC LITERATURE Jesus in India Jesus being a traveller has been well proved by Islamic history Page 83

14 S UMMARY OF TESTIMONIES FROM B UDDHIST LITERATURE The prophecy about the coming of Jesus has been clearly spelt out in Buddhist literature Having escaped from the cross, Jesus travelled East, where the Buddhists, waiting a Messiah Buddha readily accepted him and treated him with great reverence That is why there is striking similarity in the titles, events, parables and teachings of Buddha and Jesus This is the reason that the parables and the moral teaching of the Gospels are found in Buddhist books compiled in Jesus' time Jesus in India

15 C HAPTER 4 E VIDENCE FROM HISTORICAL LITERATURE Jesus' Journey to the Punjab and Neighboring Territories was Inevitable Jesus in India

16 T HE QUESTION NATURALLY ARISES AS TO WHY J ESUS, AFTER HIS ESCAPE FROM THE CROSS, SHOULD HAVE COME TO THIS COUNTRY AND WHAT COULD HAVE INDUCED HIM TO TAKE SUCH A LONG JOURNEY ? Ten tribes of Israel, who in the Gospels have been called the lost sheep of Israel, had migrated to this country Jesus in India Page 106-07

17 T EN L OST TRIBES OF B ENI I SRAEL For example, the people of Alai Kohistan which is at a distance of two or three days' journey from the district of Hazara, have called themselves Beni Israel from time immemorial A hilly tract in this region known as Kala Dakah, whose inhabitants also take pride in being of Israelite origin Then in the Hazara district itself, there is a tribe which claims to belong to the house of Israel Similarly, the inhabitants of the mountain range between Chillas and Kabul also call themselves Israelites It is too well known that people like the Afghans and the old inhabitants of Kashmir are in fact of Israelite origin Jesus in India Page 107-108

18 T EN L OST TRIBES OF B ENI I SRAEL The Kashmiri people are the descendants of Israel Their dress, their features and some of their rituals conclusively point to the fact that they are undoubtedly of Israelite origin Jesus in India Page 108

19 T EN L OST TRIBES OF B ENI I SRAEL Nebuchadnezzar took Syrians prisoner and settled them in Persia and Media From whence at a later date they moved to the East and settled in the Ghor hills, where they were known as Beni Israel It is not known at what point of time the Afghans of Ghor advanced farther and came to settle in the territory around Kandhar Qais married the daughter of Khalid bin Walid, by whom he had three sons It is their descendants who are today known as the Afghans or Beni-Israel Jesus in India Page 108-109

20 T EN L OST TRIBES OF B ANI I SRAEL The majority of oriental historians are of the opinion that the Afghan people are the descendants of the ten tribes of Israel Afghans possess evidence that at Peshawar, during his invasion of India, Nadir Shah was presented by the chiefs of the Yoosoofzyes tribe with a Bible written in Hebrew -- as well as several other articles preserved by their families for the performance of religious rites of their old faith There were also Jews in Nadir Shah's camp, who, on seeing the articles, readily recognised them Jesus in India Page 113

21 T EN L OST TRIBES OF B ANI I SRAEL We have reproduced all these quotations from the writings of well-known authors, and if considered together, they will convince the impartial reader that Afghans and Kashmiris, who are to be found in India, on the frontier and in its neighbourhood, are really the Beni Israel Jesus in India Page 121 http://www.alislam.org/library/books/jesus-in- india/appendix.html http://www.alislam.org/library/books/jesus-in- india/appendix.html

22 S UMMARY OF TESTIMONIES FROM H ISTORICAL W RITINGS J ESUS ' J OURNEY TO THE P UNJAB AND N EIGHBOURING T ERRITORIES WAS I NEVITABLE Ten tribes of Israel, who in the Gospels have been called the lost sheep of Israel had migrated to this country Afghans came from Syria. Nebuchadnezzar took them prisoner and settled them in Persia and Media, from whence at a later date they moved to the East and settled in the Ghor hills Qais married the daughter of Khalid bin Walid. It is their descendants who are today known as the Afghans or Beni-Israel Afghans and Kashmiris, who are to be found in India, on the frontier and in its neighbourhood, are really the Beni Israel Jesus in India
