Re: Syedna Burhanuddin's first Urs

Also I just cannot get over how much hypocrisy there is in the kothar and in the community. They tell you not to eat food cooked by Hindus yet they hob nob happily with the Hindu politicians with much zeal. So when Muffadal bhaisaheb went to meet namo and was offered let's say some snacks. I guess h...

Re: Syedna Burhanuddin's first Urs

I watched in amazement when ghilaafs were being draped over Burhanuddin moula's qabr mubarak. What was the point of this? There was a mountain of ghilaafs on the qabr which at one point started to topple and had to pushed back up. It just did not make any sense to me. One lady sitting next to me com...

Bhai salaar I have also like you thought about the issue of genetic mixing within bohras. I watched a programme on Ashkenazi Jews and how they marry within themselves and don't even marry other Jews leading to a higher rate of genetic disorders.
