Kashmir: Ahmadiyya believe Jesus survived crucifixion and is buried in Kashmir




11/09/1996 At Srinagar in Kashmir, a small shrine is venerated by an Islamic missionary sect as the burial place of Jesus Christ. Although they are Muslims, the Ahmadis believe that Christ survived his crucifixion and migrated across Asia in search of the lost tribes of Israel. In Kashmir, Christians are outnumbered by members of the Ahmadhi sect. A local mission has been founded after the person who, the Ahmadis believe, was told by God that Christ did not die on the cross. A shrine, which most Muslims consider the burial place of a forgotten holy man from centuries past, is believed by the Ahmadis to identify the last resting place of Jesus Christ.
