I may not all the systems and rituals, but yes, i know this, i have never seen any Dawoodi Bohra, in my 43 years of my life, been allowed to hug the dai the way Modi or Ramdev Baba or any other non-DB Muslims have done, these past few years
yes, let us not argue on this, it is a dead end topic
Technically, I don’t think there is anything preventing a Dai from hugging his followers. In fact many mumineen do give bossa to THE dai (although a full frontal full-body splatter is uniquely mufaddali ) I think with Mufaddal it is a matter of will and perception. Bohras are nothing more than a source of funds for his lavish homes.
Bhangi is such a crude, vulgar word.
Mahatma Gandhi worked all his life to avoid people of the lower caste being labelled as such, but you have just gone and done it again. If you want to use the same language, then how does that make you any different from a Mufaddali?
Whether SMS is Dai or not, that is a point of discussion for another topic. i personally am beginning to believe otherwise since some time now, but again, that is not the point of discussion here
About the bossa, i have personally never seen it, but if you have, then i will take your word for it
and yes you are right, we Bohras today are nothing but cattle, waiting to be either milked or butchered to satisfy their hunger
