For those confused as to how Ahmadi/Qadiyanis are not considered Muslim, consider this:
"Ahmadis to Muslims are as Mormons to Christians."
Catholics, Orthodox, & Protestants reject Mormon claims of additional scriptures after the Gospel and NT; likewise All Muslims (Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam alike) reject claims of revelation after the Quran.
Catholics, Orthodox, and Protestants reject the prophetic office of Joseph Smith and other Mormon leaders; likewise All Muslims (Sunni and Shiite branches of Islam alike) reject the prophetic office of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his "khulafā".
Therefore when someone says "I do not consider an Ahmadi to be a Muslim" they're not making a statement of excommunication, because due to core Ahmadi belief, they were not Muslim to begin with, as they reject the finality of prophecy and prophethood in Muhammad.
It's like trying to insist that Protestants are really Catholics even though they reject papal authority and show no allegiance to the Roman church or petrine primacy.
It's simply nonsensical to insist on that. Likewise to insist Ahmadis are Muslim is equally nonsensical.
They may call themselves whatever they like and practice whatever they like but that does not change the reality of their beliefs, nor does that oblige anyone who differs with them to accept them wholeheartedly.
Like telling Catholics to accept open communion, it's a no-go.
An important point must be mentioned here about self identification: any religious group has the right to self-identify as they please. They do not however have the right to dictate to other religious groups their beliefs or how they self-define.
