Re: Muffadal Saifuddin and related topics 2018

I look at it slightly differently. Why blame ONLY MS bhaisaheb? Yes, he and the kothar do deserve a good part of the blame. But, look at the video and the audio.

Re: Marrying a Bohra

That oath (misaq) is quite stern. Search for it on this website or somebody may have the whole text and they can put it here.

That maybe one reason you are getting sketchy answers.

Many bohras (yours truly included) have given/taken it even while being ambivalent about some of its clauses.
