As an outsider looking at Ahmadiyya, I never understood why many former Ahmadis so vehemently call Ahmadiyya a cult. Is Ahmadiyya a religion or is it a cult? When does a religion become a cult? Psychologist Philip G. Zimbardo identified four primary factors that distinguish a cult from a regular religion, upon which Mitch Horowitz appended two:

  • Behaviour control, such as monitoring of where you go and what you do.
  • Information control, such as discouraging members from reading criticism of the group.
  • Thought control, placing sharp limits on doctrinal questioning;
  • Emotional control, using humiliation or guilt.
  • Financial control, either through mandatory payments or full disclosure of financial information.
  • Extreme leadership, such as excessively revering the leader.

In this edition we briefly explore the above points with regard to Ahmadiyya. How many of the above factors would Ahmadiyya fall under if any at all?

About our mission

Qadianism (Ahmadism) is a pseudo religion whose leadership exploits its members socially, psychologically and financially. The leaders of this group have been able to maintain their hegemony over their ordinary members through treachery, plagiarism, cruel and inhuman discipline. This group aims to steal the identity of Islam by misinterpreting the original sources of Islam. The purpose of this site is to expose the tactics and logical fallacies of this group.
