Re: Bohra whatsapp duniya 2018

there are messages coming on the ITS channel to not believe in anything apart from what is being conveyed by them.. this happens only when there is much more to the story and the administration wants to control the narrative.

Re: The 4 Ustaads of Jamia

I have criticized SBM, SKQ and STF and their families for living very luxurious lifestyles on the backs of ordinary bohris.

Very good writeup, kseeker. It is possible that nass did not happen on S. Abdul Qadir Najmuddin. However, it is highly unlikely. It is far more likely that the nass happened but that the senior mashaaikh did not accept it, at least in their hearts. They wielded great power and influence at that poi...

Re: Sticky: Dawoodi Bohra's Succession of Dai Case in Mumbai High Court

I believe there will be a change in the followers dynamics if the ruling goes in TF's favour. Dawoodi bohras are not just a sect of islam but a full fledged socialist organization. Without 90% of the halls, jamaats and other structures, controlling the mass will not be easy. I understand that the j...
