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.

In the month of Muharram when shias all over the<br>world are mourning and remembering the sacrifices of<br>ahle-al-bayt, the orthodox bohras in Udaipur are facing<br>harassment at the hands of the kothar.<p>The former leaders of the Udaipur bohra reform movement, who<br>betrayed the movement and joined hands with the kothar are now finding<br>themselves high and dry. The<br>reason: all the 6 mosques in Udaipur, with the exception of<br>one, are under the management of the reformist Bohra jamaat.<br>The kothar doesn't give the orthodox permission to go to<br>these mosques or pray under reformist imams.<p>The one mosque which is now under the joint management of<br>orthodox as well as reformists is in the mohalla and is not convenient for the orthodox bohras living in the outskirts of the city to visit. <p>So now there’s big campaign to construct a new mosque<br>for the orthodox bohras. They approached the kothar to help<br>finance the construction but were, obviously, laughed off. Then they<br>pleaded with the kothar to send one of their agents to Udaipur to<br>collect money from the people for the mosque. Kothar agreed and<br>sent the Sayedna's grandson Taha Bhai Saheb to Udaipur for<br>Muharram.<p>Each orthodox family in Udaipur is now asked to donate Rs 10,000 - 15,000 for the purpose. Plus each family is asked to donate for the<br>muharram niyaz, nazar mukam and salaam to Taha bhai saheb. A<br>member of each family has to personally go and donate the money on the<br>takhat of the bhai saheb.<p>People instead of mourning the sacrifices of Imam Hussain are mourning<br>their own fate.<br>
