Re: My decision over leadership

If court decides to hand over all the Dawat properties to the community or appoints a court receiver, I believe both parties would loose interest in the control and let other party become Dai :D No matter who becomes our Dai, for me the main concern is, if he is trying to control my 'secular life' h...
