Progressive bohra population

The one and only free public forum for Bohras. The focus of this forum is the reform movement, the Dawoodi Bohra faith and, of course, the corrupt priesthood. But the discussion is in no way restricted to the Bohras alone.

Wikipedia says total bohra population is 1 million. I'm just wondering, out of curiosity what's the progressive bohra population out of it?

Being against the Kothar doesn't make anyone progressive or reformist. I see many Islamists here although they may be against Kothar.

There might be BATINI a lot more than we could imagine. Although my question is in the context of ZAHIRI.

So who decides one is Islamist .You consider reformists non Muslim?

Please explain your understanding what makes one non Muslim or declare one an apostate?

People expose themselves as Islamists. I don't have to name call anyone. I dont issue certificates to anyone but stated my observation.

Declaring others apostates is the job of Islamists. That's what they are doing around the world and often with violent consequences.
