Ahamadiyas constitute one of the sects of Islam. They are in microscopic minority in the Lakshadweep Islands
and are found only in Kalpeni Island. The Ahmadiya Muslims trace their origin to a village named Kadiani in Western Punjab. They believe that Ahmad Gulam Kadiani was the last messenger. They keep very unusual long beards and wear kurtas down to their knees, but are not considered true Muslims by the others.
