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

Biradar - I'll begin by addressing the question you put to me, but then, I am not debating with you any further until we get a few ground rules clarified. I'll get to them later. I have no interest in debating you. Sorry, but you can't put ground rules for me or anyone else. You may not realize thi...

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

The existence of God can not be proven by the scientific method, nor his non-existence. Fact : Scientific theory shows that our universe could appear without the need of a creator. Reasoning by analogy (chair therefore creator, universe therefore creator) leads to errors of logic. The only point I ...

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

My thinking is that if STF wins the case in India, and it is enforceable, it will have a significant impact. The Bohra history and bulk of attachment is to 4 states. Maharashtra (Mumbai), Gujarat (multiple cities), Rajasthan (Galiyakot, Udaipur), and Madhya Pradesh (Indore, Ujjain). If STF wins dec...

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

I find the simple argument quite convincing....since there is a chair, it must have a maker. Hence, since there is a Universe, it must have a creator. What part of it did you not understand? Unless of course you are so lacking in imagination that you are not willing to make room for a grand purpose...

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

Clearly, in the early years of SMB's reign there was a lot of love between Muffy, Qaid Johar (aka Qaid Chor) and SQK, as many letters they exchanged prove. Hence, the argument "talwaaro chali jaase" is weak. Clearly, Muffy and Qaid Johar were not the one to chalaoo talwaar on SKQ. I'm pretty sure t...

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

There are two competing claims here. SKQ was claiming that nass was done on him in private and such a private nass is perfectly valid. Let's assume this was true. However, SMB lived for 100 years and his reign was long, 50+ years. Why did he not make this explicit later when he had the chance and hi...
