Below is my thought process of how I perceived the bohra governance hierarchy worked :
Dai being the supremo religious leader providing the vision, mission and spiritual guidance to bohra community.
Mazoon being the second in command, responsible for religious practices and its adherence , awareness, education and guidance. Someone over seeing education portfolio, pilgrimage portfolio etc
Mukasir being the third in command, responsible for facility administration and other secular aspects of serving the community such as grievances from commoners, secular advises.
The common responsibility of above three position would be to keep educating, supporting, caring and guiding commoners in all aspects of life be it deeni or duniya.
Muallims, Amils, Shiekhs, NKD, MKD, Mullahs, Ayans and Khidmatguzaars are the staff at various levels with designated job descriptions to serve the community in respective field of expertise under the guidance of Dai, Mazoon and Mukasir.
This Structure sounds very good on paper, but in practice it is haywire in the current scenario. SMS the great Dai is a short tempered entertainer and globetrotter. Mazoon is like silent Ex-PM of India Man-Mohan Singh and Mukasir is visibly hidden from all actions going on in the community. Bohra priestly class appears to be bunch of bureaucratic, laanat throwing, short tempered, hypocrite mullahs clad in white robes. They seem more like cunning yet stupid politicians running the bohra community affairs like a TV show announcing fancy but hollow and short-lived schemes. Fooling foolish abdes with their dazzling fireworks of words and rova-jevu-moo apart from insensitive show and pomp of extravagance displaying their double standards.
