Mirza Ghulam Qadiani started his religious business just to earn riches and improve his financial position which has deteriorated over the years particularly after the death of his father Mirza Ghulam Murtaza and elder brother Mirza Ghulam Qadir. In this letter, MIRZA QADYANI is talking to his childhood friend, Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi. MGA talks about his financial mis-management, in fact, he regularly stole money from the community kitchen in Qadian. MGA even said that he doesn’t have to give accounts to anyone, he can spend his chanda money on anything he wants and doesn’t have to show proof of anything.
