Another question for Abdes - why a gate in the mosque?

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.

Another question for Abdes - why a gate in the mosque?

Why are they some men within the gate and others outside in this picture in the Londom mosque?
Looks like a hierarchy of touchables vs. non.

Thanks AZ

I wonder what special privileges the "inner" circles enjoy. Are they ones ordained with 'NKD', Sheikh, etc titles? I am really curiuos about such a barrier inside the mosque. I have seen one such gate inside an Udaipuri mosque - it is one that is managed by the Mainstream , a barrier was constructed by police enforcement to allow Reformists to pray. It is a an ironic situation indeed, when the house of God is divided thus.

Brother aqs, please respond if you know the reason for the barrier in the London mosque. It looks like a temporary one. Thanks.

@Bohri,

Brother looks like more of a crowd control as replied by AlZulfiqar, but definitely the motive will be more humanly

Does separating the bakras from the wolves aka Rehbars, prevent their being slaughtered?

@bohri,
Here I am in agreement with guy_sam, you don't have to pay to be in the inner circle, you have to be born in the right family to be there and get your feet kissed.

The same applies for you guy_sam. Apart from the virus in your head, you've got this another disorder that causes you to be blind against wrong; meaning you are not blind literally, but still fail to see all the obvious lies.

Bro Human,
Please don't get into one-on-one with guy_sam. He has declared his own intention of being on this forum as "time pass". Not being able to reply to reason, he gets into petty diversion and name calling. The best thing is not to respond to his diversionary and name calling posts.
