Re: Marrying a Bohra

I couldn't help but marinate on this topic a little more and question the reason they would want you to sign such a document. Only one reason come to mind, maintaining status quo. Think of this, in every child custody battle the prime reason any one of the parent gets full custody of the child is if...

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

Anajmi, I love the incoherence of your circular argument and your ability to stretch metaphors to their very limits. I may not be as well averse with historic references to current events as you are but can definitely see through baloney when I come across it. The dispute is not in the validity and ...

Re: Marrying a Bohra

Certain well versed people have commented here to sign the document and disregard it after. This is poor advice as : 1. Its easier said than done.

If a man can marry a man, and a woman can marry a woman, then one day a man can marry a young girl and a woman can marry a young men and then FGM will be a man or a woman's decision. That is where civilization will trample spirituality and every one will be happy.
