Re: Donations to this Forum

My dear bohras, this site needs donations. Many bohras need financial aid. Let us work together to raise funds for this cite and also make donations for those bohras who need financial aids. You know the dais whether they are born on the 22 of Ramadan or not, or their kothars will not make any dona...

Re: Police investigating FGM in community

Ozbhai Bravo bravo to you and all those involved in spearheading this FGM VICTORY. But I wonder now if the authorities and the courts in Australia are going to hear this audio clip posted by ajamali that shows the open defiance of our MUFADDAL Maula in condemning the proposed ban on khatna. If the c...

Re: Practice Of Female Circumcision Among Bohra Muslims.

It is about time more and more behnos resist and stand up to protect and prevent their daughters sisters nieces from being subject to khatna. It is the least you can do in your own sphere of influence.

Re: Questions to Adam,Saif53 and alike

Why attack Adam saif53 on self esteem and chase him out of this forum community? Is this any different from MS chasing people out of bohra masjids and raudat Tahera. Cyber bullying is a real thing - it's no defense against real life bullying that I admit happens in MS duniya

Why is gene pool of panjetan paak and therefore imaamat given so much importance in Fatemi theology? The good the bad and the evil come from all genetic pools and all families. We see that today in the so-called "Royal Family" - of course, both sides fingerpointing the other side as evil.
