The love of the Holy Prophet, like every faithful Muslim, remained the goal of Agha’s whole life. 
  • The love of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) kept him active against the Qadianis, until the last breath of his life. His persistent and relentless struggle to declare the Qadianis a non-Muslim minority through parliament under Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto is one of the brightest chapters in the history of the Movement for the end of Prophethood.
