In the early days of Pakistan, the Hindu community in the Sindh province of Pakistan was poor and mistreated by non Ahmadi Muslim landowners. Seeing this, the missions offered them financial help and influenced them towards Christianity
During this time, Pakistan’s spirituality in rural areas was in a very weak state and On December 27th 1957 Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II(ra) started the blessed project called The New Dedication (Waqf-e-Jadid. It was to be the last of the schemes he initiated for the Jamaat. Hazrat Khalifatul-Masih II(ra)planned to create a network of Mualimeen (Teachers) who should be wholly devoted to the upbringing of the members throughout the length and breadth of Pakistan. Following two main objective were setup for the same:
1.To look after the spiritual upbringing of the Ahmadi members living in the rural communities
2.To bring the message of Islam to Hindu population
- The Hindu community in the Sindh province was poor and was mistreated and exploited by the Muslim landowners.
- Christian missions offered them financial help and thus influenced them towards Christianity.
- Waqfe Jadid carried out the huge task of bringing this Hindu community into Ahmadiyyat and continues to do so to this day.
- Originally this scheme was only for the members of Pakistan and for the rural communities of Pakistan
- In 1986 the Hazrat Khalifatul-Masih IV (ra) broadened the scope of this project to the whole world so that with the help of everyone’s contributions, in particular of the Jammats in Western countries, Waqf-e-Jadid could be set in motion in India and countries in Africa with similar issues.
On 1st February 1958, fourteen Mualimeen were dispatched to selected rural areas of the country. Now by the grace and mercy of Allah the number of Mualimeen is in thousands. Sahibzada Mirza Tahir Ahmad Sahib ( was appointed as the first Director (Nazim Irshad) of Waqf-e-Jadid.
