I would like to share something with you all! I thought this table of 'Religious Affiliation of History's 100 Most Influential People', would be of interest to the Ahmadis out there! "Note that many influential philosophies (such as Marxist Communism or Confucianism) are not always classified as organized "religions" in the traditional sense, but are classified as such by sociologists because they are a primary motivational worldview for individuals, cultures or subcultures." So if they can make the grade as below, then I am 99.9% that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement, will definitely be on this list! He just has to be! He is after all, the Messiah of all Religions, as promised to mankind! He is the founder of a dymanic, fast growing international movement in Islam, with members exceeding tens of millions!

Anyways, let's see if we can Spot Mirza! Think 'Where's Wally' but a 'Mirza Manhunt' instead! Ready? Yay!

Taken from Michael Hart's book: The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History:

1 Muhammad Islam Prophet of Islam; conqueror of Arabia; Hart recognized that ranking Muhammad first might be controversial, but felt that, from a secular historian's perspective, this was the correct choice because Muhammad is the only man to have been both a founder of a major world religion and a major military/political leader.

Oooops! No Mirza Ghulam Ahmad! Where is he hiding? Oh, thats right, he isn't hiding because no one has ever heard of him! Great Messiah he turned out to be! Have you guys read the Ahadith on the Messiah? The Mahdi? I suggest you do and then realise that HAD they come, there is no way would have been missed off this list!

I mean even Adolf Flammin' Hitler manages to make the cut, so has some Homer Simpson of Greek Paganism, so where is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi? Why has he failed to make such an impact, that even a random author of a random book failed to pick up on him, but chooses to mention Menes? The guy who invented X Rays is there, but the guy who was the awaited One with Allah by his side isn't? Still, it is great to see Hart recognising the status of the Prophet Muhammad SAAWS! How come his subordinate, most ardent devotee isn't on there with him? How come the original Jesus is on there, but his 2nd coming isn't? Common Sense..lets use it!

I know its just a random list but come on now, if JFK can make the grade, why hasn't Allah's promised one? You would think Mr Hart, the guy behind the list, would have at least had the common courtesy to put MGA above JFK! Surely he would have come to heard about him from somewhere!

Oh the shame! Even Leader of the Nations and Ameerul Momi'neen Mirza Masroor Ahmad, head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Faith, didn't even cut the mustard! I have looked for Mirza Mas Ahmad everywhere on this list (2011) and cannot find him! Can you find Mas?

WOW! Ahmadiyyat really is making its mark on the world! What a revolution this has turned out to be! Mind blowing! Earth Shattering! Wow! Just Wow!

Yeah I know, they are lists that mean nothing but considering the depth of the claims of Mirza and his family and had they been true; I would, as a rational thinker, expect at least one of them to be on either of the two lists! Oh and Ahmadis before you say 'oh that's just a white man list', remember the 'white man list' has mentioned prominent Muslims  and isn't it the white man with whom you have first class relations with? Well then....! A number of Indian/Hindus made the second list; they come from the land of Mirza Ghulam and still managed to outdo him and his living Khalifa! How does that figure?

OK we all know how uninspiring that bumbling oaf of a 'Khalifa' Mas is, so maybe the world renowned Mirza Tahir Ahmad could have made the first list? Mind you, he isn't so world renowned is he? LOL. And oh the shame, the only few figures the Jamaat of Scamadiyya has under its belt: Dr. Abdus Salaam and Ch. Muhammad Zafrullah Khan, failed to make their mark too! LOL. Ahmadiyya is of no significance to the world... but the Ahmadiyya leads its followers to believe the world spins around them and everything happens because of them! Earthquakes, floods and wars, you name it, it is because of them! Guess what? No one cares! There is a world outside of the Cult!

I think I have found the reason Mirza Masroor Ahmad failed to make the list (be warned, it might make you drowsy)! Click here to see the Uninspirational in Action-Figure!

Ahmadis...use your common sense! There is no victory. There is no impact. There is no influence!
