These lectures were highly applauded by the intellectual circles. Malik Abdul Qayyum, Principal Law College Lahore, wrote to Huzoor (ra) on 4 December 1947 and said:
“I listened with great interest to your lecture on Pakistan yesterday and profited a lot. It was full of new knowledge and breathed a spirit of courage and hope.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 10, p. 408).
Sir Feroz Khan Noon expressed:
“There is an ocean of knowledge billowing in Hazrat Sahib’s mind. He has told us a lot in such a short time and shed light upon the matter in a scholarly way.” (Al Fazl, 9 December 1947).
Many newspapers published news articles about Huzoor’sra lectures, including Nawa-e-Waqt, Nizam, Zamindar, Safina, Eastern Times and Taqat.
