Biggest Charity Fraud in Panama Papers
So, I have been called names for calling the Qadiani branch of the Ahmadiyya religion as a cult run by the Mirza Family for their personal financial gain.
In 2010, we exposed their secret web of companies and charities and how they were funneling away money in property investments. The Charities Commission looked the other way. We showed how Mirza Masroor Ahmad(below) re-organized the corporate structure in 2003 to be under the control of his trusted family and friends, while not having his own name on a single organization.
We said then that when the cult implodes, the family may run away with their property investments. The time may have come for them to hide their wealth even further. And this wealth is not through business. It is by forcing poor people — benefits recipients — to cough up 5–10% of their income on penalty of ostracization. Just as the Internet has laid bare the theological fraud of the Mirza family, today it lays bare the rest of their secret web of offshore companies and accounts due to the Panama papers.
Flow of Money
Money flows as charitable donations from ‘have’ countries like U.S.,. Canada, Pakistan, Germany and U.K. into AMJ International from where it is distributed into dubious projects around the world. The accounting in each country is kept up to date, but money gets lost in international transactions.
The actual work of the organization is carried out through just one charity — Al-Shirkatul-Islamiyyah, and curiously, its income and expenses almost balance every year.
Since Mirza Masroor Ahmad came to power, he has focused on investing in properties and totally unrelated to the goals of the organization. We see from the Panama Papers that the businesses are involved mostly in property investment.
In 2010, we wondered who had a mortgage on an Ahmadiyya property on Deer Park Drive; the only substantial building that is not a place of worship and the mortgage of which is always renewed after a few years. The company was known as T.J. Holdings and nothing was known of it. It is now located in the Panama Papers:
T.J.HOLDINGS S.A.,T.J.HOLDINGS S.A.,,PMA,Panama,,A B ARSHAD
Abul Baqi Arshad
This person is about 81 years old, a friend and confidant of Mirza Masroor Ahmad, and the current and former director of up to 23 companies in their visible charities’ web in the U.K. Here are some of his other offshore companies revealed in the Panama Papers Leak, some of which replaced others, and almost all since 2003, when his friend took reigns of the cult:
Lombard Invest Limited
JAFAH ENTERPRISES INC.
MAHA INTERNATIONAL INC
ASLAM CORPORATION S.A.
ASIFA HOLDINGS S.A. (named after wife of Mirza Tahir Ahmad)
NUSRAT INVESTMENTS INC. (named after great-grandmother of Mirza Masroor Ahmad)
QADIR ENTERPRISES INC.
FAZAL ENTERPRISES INC.
SLAMAT HOLDINGS S.A.
SIND HOLDINGS S.A.
ALHAMAD HOLDINGS S.A.
CASCA HOLDINGS S.A.
SUMMIT PROPERTIES INC.
SALAMAT ENTERPRISES INC.
BILAL INVESTMENTS INC.
Other Companies and Possible Structure
There are other companies with links directly to the Qadiani Ahmadiyya town of Chanab Nagar in Pakistan but we are still researching the ownership links which will eventually be found to be traced to the Mirza Family.
It appears that the offshore companies are organized as trust funds along the family branches and provide income to various parts of the vast Mirza family — not unlike a royal family renowned for idleness and extravagance.
What Story and Two Questions?
It is unclear how the Mirza Family and their minions will spin this revelation and how they will dupe their followers into giving them even more money.
Question 1: What is the need to hide money in so many offshore companies? Question 2: Where did the money come from and who controls it?
For those shrill Qadiani Ahmadiyya bloggers always shrieking at ‘mullahs’, here is your mullah for you. Illiterate, unaware of theology, can barely speak in public, full of gaffes and hoarding your money for his family.
And yet, to you, he is God’s representative on earth. I actually feel so sorry for you and wish you would wake up to the exploitation. If there was any time to do so, this is it.
