DEDICATED TO BIRADAR. THE NEWEST QUTBI BOHRA SUPPORTER.
It is interesting to see the alias Biradar changing his position over time. He has gone from a Fatemi rejecting, SMB Moula hating Proggy, to one who agreed the Nass took place on Syedna Mufaddal TUS – and now a Qutbi Bohra KQ supporter.
Below are captions from his old posts. They can be verified by simply googling the text or using the Forums search tool.
He seems to be well versed in Fatemi history, but has ended up confused Qutbi Bohra. KQ must be really proud to have him on board.
Biradar’s comments on Ikwan al Safa written by Imam Ahmad AS:
“For example, in the Ikhwan as-Safa, there are long descriptions of cosmology, mathematics and other scientific fields. These were supposedly written by Imam Ahmad al-Mastuur, or under his supervision. However, the whole edifice of science in it is wrong, and so outdated that is almost irrelevant today.”
Biradar’s comments on The Dawat in General:
“Part of the problem, in fact, a large part of the problem is religion itself. It tends to be totalitarian, controlling and anti-liberal.
“they are a cult as far removed from Islam as one can get.”
“The hypocrisy of the fanatic dai-worshippers is amazing.”
“Every kid is now taught to fold hands and stand reverentially in front of mola, or, in his absence, in front of the local Amil. The sight is despicable and disgusting.”
Biradar’s opinion on Islamic practices like the Beard:
“More bohras need to shave their jahil beards, stop wearing rida and become secular, and stop giving two hoots about them.”
Biradar’s opinion on The Infallibility of the Dai:
“In any case, that the da'i is infallible is a myth. It is not part of the Bohra faith.”
In 2014: “Whatever the truth, it is clear that the da'i has absolutely no authority any longer to say he is infallible.”
“The da'i is not infallible and was never supposed to be.”
Biradar’s words on Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA:
“The bohra da'i, at the end of the day, is simply a tin-pot dictator. If you just ignore him long enough and leave him alone he won't bother you.”
“Also, SBM failed miserably, if in his 50 years he was unable to make his intentions clear. All these secrets he kept have caused hardship to the community. Hence, he failed in his most important duty, to appoint his successor unambiguously. So, in his passing he showed that all the praise we hear for da'i's is just that: empty praise. They are as human as any of us, not above the lust for power, money, and courtly intrigue.”
“We all saw how SMB (RA) was manipulated towards the end of his life, control snatched from him”
Biradar then goes on to say:
“Mon Jan 20, 2014 “If we think about the whole situation, we will notice that in the two years since the brain stroke, NOT ONCE, have we heard SMB speak.”
BIRADAR IS WRONG.
In fact, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA performed the waaz on 2nd Moharram 1433H – almost 6 months AFTER the Stroke. And then again in Pune. (Not forgetting the London and Raudat Tahera Nass as well)!
Biradar’s position on Asghar Engineer after his death. This confirms Biradar is not a Dawoodi Bohra:
“Postby Biradar » Tue May 14, 2013 11:28 am
This is terrible news, and a great loss to the community, not just progressive Bohras and Muslims, but also to the larger community that strives for justice and equality for all. Although most of us did not know Dr. Engineer personally, he has influenced us in more than one way.”
“This news has made me very sad. May his family, friends and supporters find inspiration from his life to continue his work, and may we all follow his example and try to make our society a better place, in any small way we can.”
THE NASS ON SYEDNA MUFADDAL TUS
When questioned in 2011 by “accountability” how the Nass was done in absence of the Mazoon and that KQ would claim to be the Dai – aiming to cast doubt on the subject, it was Biradar who (quite rightly) answered as follows:
“Natural contender of the office wll be Mazoon, but there are precedents, that nominee was not Mazoon, but in each case nominee was declared in mazoon's presence and endorsed by mazoon.”

“This is a ridiculous statement. Please prove that in each case of the last 52 da'is the appointment was endorsed by mazoon and in his presence. In many instances the nass was done by letter, sometimes in public and sometimes in private among a select few. At the end of the day the da'i can do absolutely what he wants and no one is required to endorse his choice. In the time of satr the da'i is the absolute leader. There is an instance when the Mazoon was removed from his position.
I think people are getting too worked up about this nass issue. It was bound to happen one day and it is good it has happened so that the community does not split. Of course, schisms are still possible but I think highly unlikely. In the misaaq one explicitly declares that the da'i can promote whoever he wants and demote whoever he wants. It does not say he needs endorsement from anyone.
Now, one can question the misaq from many perspectives but this is the way it is.”
Biradar then concludes:
“Just accept this as a valid succession and move on
. There will no difference to the progressive movement at all.”
Answering those who question why the Nass was conveyed through the Shehzadas, Biradar (quite rightly) answered them saying Nass can be conveyed through anyone.

“It is actually irrelevant if the da'i himself makes the announcement or does it through someone else. There is no particular requirement and choosing his successor is entirely his choice.
Even in cases when the nass has been declared publicly there have been instances of disputes and schisms have occurred. Also, it is not unlikely that the nass was actually performed a long time ago and the sayedna has now chosen to make it public. Also, it is possible that he personally will make it public in a few days. After all, he is still sick and can not just hobble out to satisfy the skeptics.
Anyway, as far as bohras are concerned, this is fait accompli. They have now someone else to worship for the rest of their lives. Things will just be as usual, nothing really will change.”
AGREEING THE NASS ON MOULA TUS IS MORE ACCEPTABLE TO HIM THAN KQ'S FAKE NASS
“Now, of course, none of this means that the nass issue should be decided on such considerations. It is possible the SMS is the real successor
But In another instance he says:
“Looking the documentation provided on fatemidawaat.com it is very likely that the claims of SKQ are true.”
Why does Biradar seem so confused?
First Biradar sides up with the Qutbi Bohra belief that a Nass without witnesses is valild:
Sun Jan 19, 2014 “he says that even if the nass is done without any witnesses in private, it is valid
He then later on goes to say there were witnesses to KQ’s alleged Nass.
“Feb 28, 2016 First, naas can be done both in private as well as public. There is no requirement that a da'i do naas in public or even among witnesses... In the case of S. Qutbuddin, the knowledge of the naas was widespread. For example, Sayedi Saaleh BS, the mukaasir of STS (RA) and SMB (RA) knew about it, so did many other people.
So which one is it? Witnesses or no witnesses?
IN REGARDS TO THE NASS OF SYEDNA HATIM RA, BIRADAR SAYS THE FOLLOWING:
Feb 28, 2016: “They say that naas can be changed and that S. Hatim changed the naas from S. Ali bin Muhammad al-waalid to his own son, S. Ali bin Hatim. Actually, this is gross distortion of the truth. The reality is that S. Hatim had made the intention to do nass on S. Ali bin Muhammad, and, when S. Ali found out, urged S. Hatim to do naas on his (S. Hatim's) son instead. There was no change of naas. In fact, S. Ali bin Muhammad himself became the 5th da'i al-mutlaq.”
Once again. Biradar and the Qutbis are wrong.
Yes. In one bayaan the word “intention” is used, however, in Syedna Taher Saifuddin’s Risala he says the Nass actually took places on Syedna Ali bin Mohammed, and then again took place on Syedna Ali bin Syedna Hatim.

Concluding. As I mentioned in the beginning. Biradar started off as a Proggy Dai hater and now a KQ supporter.
There’s nothing wrong with changing sides – as long as he’s undoes, un-believes what he has said all these years.
So what’s Biradar’s position now? Please clarify
