Salam ladies and gents!
Well, well, well.. have you Ahmadis ever wondered where your hard-earned chanda money is spent? Well I can tell you where at least £40,000 worth of it is going! Brother shahzad10 from the cult.info forums came across a very interesting job description for a horse breeder/handler, put up by the Ahmadiyya Jamaat on totaljobs:
So.. looks like Mas is living the good life and ready to splash the cash! In a time of global recession, where even families in London are barely getting by (let alone the rest of the world) Mas thinks it's ok to waste this huge amount of money on a horse breeder! How many hungry mouths can that amount of money feed in a place like Somalia where hundreds of thousands are dying even as we speak? If this isn't rank hypocrisy then I don't know what is.
Have a look at the exact job description below:

Here's what brother shahzad10 had to say:
£25000 salary + £15000 bonus + accommodation - all of that for Masroor's horses. I guess since Wandsworth Council refused to approve his palace at Gressenhall Road he is now trying to build up a luxurious life in Islamabad. This is £40000 a year of chanda money being wasted on Masroor's horses. £40000 a year! All in the name of Islam of course.
It's time to stop funding Masroor's lavish lifestyle Ahmadis. Chanda is not an islamic obligation. Zakah is the only obligatory payment in Islam and it is not used to fund anyones lifestyle.
Bro Miyyan also raises some interesting questions:
From the British Horse Society:
An average horse cost (to buy) = £5000.00
Cost of keeping a horse in UK = £10,000.00 per Annum
Hiring a Animal Husbandry/Farm Manager = £50,000.00 (£2500 salary + £15000 bonus + fully furnished accommodation)
Building a stable, a horse track, a grazing secure yard, and a shelter warm enough to protect horses from the harsh UK winter are some other considerations which require huge financial commitment in UK.
If Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib keeps only three horses, the total cost of acquiring horses, making a shelter and keeping for one year piled up to £100,000.00. The amount for Pakistani readers is after conversion 14,000,000 Rs. This means if a family in Pakistan pays an average 1000 Rs. Chanda to Jamat, it requires 14000 families to pay for the cost for the innocent little hobby of ‘Our Becharay’ Huzoor.
A common Ahmadi’s perception about their Hazoor can be easily viewed in the following article;
Temporal and Spiritual Authority of institution of Khilafat:
“If we glance at the lifestyle of … the khulfa of the Promised Messiahas, it is clear that they lived a simple life which is an important prerequisite to honest governance. Despite the fact that they were chosen for life as the Khalifa, they set the examples of impressive leadership styles.”
On 5th November, 2010, Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib delivered the Friday Sermon at Baitul Futūh Mosque, London. (http://www.alislam.org/fr...0101105.html#summary-tab )
A letter (http://www.alislam.org/tj/sermons/FSJ20101105-EN.pdf ) was sent to every Jamat president to brain washed ever more rigorously to those sincere Ahmadis who were already making financial sacrifices by cutting down their daily necessary basic expenses and saving more money to pay more Chanda to their beloved ‘Hazoor’.
The letter reiterated the message of Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib in the following manner.
“he (Mirza Mahmood Ahmad Sahib) urged Ahmadīs to adopt a simple lifestyle and reduce their expenses on food and clothing, etc., so as to contribute more in this cause. By the grace of Allāh, Ahmadī men, women and children made tremendous sacrifices and today Allāh is blessing their progeny with abundance. Witnessing these signs of Allāh’s favours, a believer is motivated to make even greater sacrifices and we can see examples of this everywhere in the Jamā‘at.”
For our Ahmadi Brothers/Sisters:
Hazoor is spending thousands of pounds of chanda payers’ money, which you have paid to him with a great trust. Which sort of category do you think this money should be considered for the propagation of Islam?
Please answer, if you can!
Does a role model Ahmadiyyah Khalifa should behave like a spoiled king? Should only an ordinary Ahmadi have to adjust and adopt a simple lifestyle as advised by KII? Why Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib is refusing arrogantly to take the advice of the earlier Khalifa, while very hypocritically asking others to follow that advice?
