Re: Practice Of Female Circumcision Among Bohra Muslims.

Sorry I can not join in. I leave to individuals to make their choices. I am not in favor of humiliating our whole community and our ancestors who worked hard to build our social standing of being honest and religious community. We have enought problems with our clergy who disintegrate us and rob us...

Re: Practice Of Female Circumcision Among Bohra Muslims.

I told my 3 daughters that our prophet pbuh wants you to have khatna. These terrorists wants to hijack Islam and therefore they will not make it possible for these procedures to be done in the hospital. So we are going to Somali or Sudan or Yemen to have the khatna done. They agreed and said lanatu...

Re: Misaq the practise of oath taking in Dawoodi Bohra

Once you give Misaq, you are a full Sabeel payer, so by becoming an adult at a tender age of 13, Kothar gets a full paying Sabeel member in its book, in the West, abdes and amtes are charged sabeel per person and not per family so on average, each family of 6 (MBBS.. MA BAAP BACCHE SAATH) pays out ...

Re: Dawoodi Bohra in media 2017

Agreed, Biradar, it is not "one man's" misdoing. But this one man has the power to make a difference, change the course of history. But does he have the acumen to do it, that is the question. At least, FD's Taher Fakhruddin took a more reasonable, non-commital stand. Biradar and himsafar, Thank you...

Re: Dawoodi Bohra in media 2017

And this is the crux really that it is not something that even needs to be abolished. It never was the same as what the FGM movement is all about. All it needed was to explain what the procedure is and remove the secrecy shroud over it. How is it different from what happens to boys? It is even less...

But this is very serious matter requiring serious conversation to stop this communities brand dragged around by actions of orthodox brainwashed SMS wors...

Re: Dawoodi Bohra in media 2017

As I read many of the articles, and especially the comments sections, I just want to make the following observation. Dawoodi Bohras rightly blame the extremist Muslim groups (wahabis, Taliban, ISIS, etc.) for doing bad acts and bringing a bad name to the religion of Islam. Now, very sadly, the acti...

Biradar As much as I am appalled by the action of Jumana Nagarwala ( I refuse to call her doctor now) but do you think she is the only to blame. Obviously, there is a bigger problem here. However, the law does not assign collective punishment to a group for simply holding a view. It is true the par...

Re: Taher Fakhrudin and related topics

The qutbi Bohra blog makes me laugh. They just grasp at straws to prove their point. I don't think that the comparison to nass was blasphemous. I think it was just drawing a parallel. In addition, they try to raise a point about the sijjil being resent. What exactly are they talking about? Frankly a...

Repercussions of speaking up

I have found that people are becoming more and more vocal against Kothar and the system. I thought I would start a thread for examples of this and whether there were any repercussions (even comments and responses) for doing so.
