Re: In defence of the Silent Majority

Well Imam can be safe in IRAN, a shia power with Nukes. I am sure Iranians will give their life to protect the life of the Imam. So this argument that Imam's life is danger does not hold too much water given the Geo Political landscape. Let us look at this way. Narendra Modi after Gujarat Riots had...

Re: In defence of the Silent Majority

I have asked this question in the past, is “hiddenness” of Imam part or centre of bohra belief ? there is no conclusive discussion. However there are glaring examples of how “hiddenness” of Imam is exploited / used as a major tool to oppress and loot commoners for greed of power and wealth. At the ...

Re: Bohras on hadith of: Mohamed PBUH is city of knowledge

Actually, the hadith doesn't support his literacy. Since, he didn't actually write anything down.

In common sense it seems not possible that a person who claim to be "City of Knowledge" doesn't even have the basics of knowledge = how to read/write!
