Last 30 years, it has become an "in thing" to hang Dai's (51/52 and questionable 53) pictures in homes. In fact it is one of the things that the Amils note when they visit your homes. But I received the forward following from a friend on What's App.

======== Forwarded as received ==============
Below article in URDU clearly suggests that how 51 (Taher saifuddin) was against hanging photo on the wall. When Janab 51 occupied the chair of BOHRA DAI he was very much against that his photo or picture should not be taken or hanged in the house

I have with me Nasime Saher Of 1914 or round about that was published from JABALPUR in URDU and Janab 51 was doing WAEZ & during WAEZ he spoke against hanging his photo in the house
So during his WAEZ one of his SHAIKH recited the following sher (Shairi)
TASVEER SE MAULA KEE NA TUM GHAR KO SAJAO
BIDAAT HEY YE BIDAAT HEY YE BIDAAT YE BIDAAT

and Janab 51 at once ordered to give him cash prize of Rupees 51.

I have got cutting of that NASIME SAHER
Below I m sending u that news paper cutting
But it is in URDU.

Bohras dont care about the past or future they just care present farmaan of dai.

so if current dai allows pics it is all good to hang it on wall, if in future some dai will stop it, they will be all good to stop it.

If that's the case then why we dwell on the events of the past as it relates to the past Dais?

Whatever suits to Dai and approved by dai is a present event.

I stopped hanging any Dai's photos in my house years ago. Isn't it similar to Hinduism hanging their deities pics pooja and all. Savare utho, ghar na bhar niklo, kai saaru kaam karva jau toh Moula no photo chum va no isn't it the same ???
Recently I heard from some staunch Bohris, that I cannot hang my Children's or Family photos but I must hang the Dai's photo. What nonsense is this ?

I have my own way to deal with this issue, I have keep one spare pic of MS and hang it only when some chutiya abde is suppose to visit my house.. I dont like arguments and fights so I try and keep it simple and sober :lol:

I remember when SMS came to power, he had mass produced his pic with a nice frame and send it out to every bohri family. Mine is sitting somewhere in a storeroom. My MIL said "Badha room ma ek Moula no photo joye"

Buy a clear frame, put two pics. back to back. When uninvited Abde show up , turn the frame around. No more arguement about "log kiya kahengay "

This all picture business started with Prince Karim Aga khan and his followers. YN had a brilliant idea and replicated all those practices which Aga Khanis practiced minus returning all collected money back to Jamaat khana. Here in Bohraism the buck stops at saifee mahal
