Re: Indian Bohra, TRADERS or BRAHMINS?

Bohras living in Maharashtra , Gujarat & Rajasthan cities are convert from Brahmins . Those living in towns & villages were traders mostly. Wagadiya bohris are convert from low caste Adivasis with very low IQ . Generalizations calling a large group of people as "low caste and with low IQ" is sad. A...

Friends, I have a suggestion. Sadly, the moderator/admin has decided that having a person like "momeenbhai" is a good thing for this forum. Apparently, making numerous IDs, arguing with himself using his other IDs, derailing threads, making nasty gutter-like attacks on people, is perfectly legitima...

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

Appreciate the civil nature of the discussions here. Hope that it continues. At its best, I believe that the judge will decide who in the opinion of the court is the correct dai, and hence who should be the administrator (in effect, controlling ?) of Dawat-e-hadiyah (all the bohra properties). As fa...

Yet Shia history prioritises only Huseins martyrdom and his descendents. Imam Hussain was not a Khalifa as by Sunni books. This rai...
