Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad was the second Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a Muslim sect that officially had its start in India in 1889. Although the sect’s teachings are regarded as heretical by many more familiar branches of Islam, they have between 10 and 20 million followers in at least 200 countries worldwide.
