it is naive to think the SMB was so intelligent to have single handedly decide that SKQ is a mazoom and inherit the Diai 50 years ago. ST'S wishes were in play .qjbj wrote:I noticed on Wikipedia they list SKQ was born 1940 and SMS was born 1946. So when STS died SKQ was 25 and SMS was 20. I could couldn't find the date QJ was born. I assume he was the eldest child of SMB so he would have to be over 20. The point I'm trying to make is when STS died all the eligible future Dai's whom SMB and even STS (before he died) could make Mazum would all be in the same age range. That is SMB must have compared SMS, QJ, and SKQ and seen who had the best qualities to be Mazum. SMS was not very small, he was already 20yrs old so SMB could have made him Mazum but he did not. So this shows SMB did not think any of his kids were future dai candidates.
there is no rule that mazoon must be the diai, however smb was weak and over confident of his mortality and could not publicly sort the decision as StS had done for him. smb may have wanted one of his sons to take over , how he thought sms was the most capable is a puzzle ? Qj was by far more strategic and intelligent, is it he was not interested to be in front ? what about the son who died ? is it because of loss of his wife he could not reach a decision ?
itis the sons of smb who must have realised the mess smb was to leave behind if no formal mansoos was created when he received his stroke. SKQ sons must have seen this as manipulation and taken advantage of the situation . the probability is no formal handing over was conducted and by default SKQ can claim a automatic assession how ever why he is playing that move about declarations made 50 years ago is another sign of a risky move,
it is possible they sms and SKQ know Abde psychology better than I , that abdes don't think logically and would rely on any clue that it was smb raza, or instruction and if any claimant can prove that , he will win hearts and minds.
the challenge is in a sense of clear public declaration of succession how to create the most credible hint ! so far sms is leading it through political campaign and winning popularity. the problem is his backwardness is also leaking popularity and SKQ is picking the fallout while others are remaining agnostic
