The Dai is not masoum and you cannot support this claim either by tradition or by any of the Ismaili/Mustalian soruce books.aqs wrote:same goes for you also, you can or cant believe in him it does not affect the majority, your figment of imagination and some rare incidents of corruptions from few individuals will not be good enough for majority to give a second thought to Dai being Masoom
There is nothing idealistic about it. That people should be able to manage their own affairs is only natural, right and just. And this has nothing to do with Islam, and you are being dishonest and deceptive to bring Islam into this argument. Running and managing a local jamat is a secular and administrative affair. The dai is only a religious/spiritual leader, there is not justification for him to own all bohra properties.aqs wrote:what you are proposing looks idealistic in approach but what i have mentioned is the practicality of the scenario, Islam was never based on Democratic society it was always a autocratic society based on Prophet, Imam or Dai as the leader
Please understand that the ownership of jamaat properties is at the heart of reformist struggle in udaipur. The reformists want to keep them under the jamaat (and people's) management and ownership. The orthodox want to take over and wakf it to Maula. Barring orthodox form jamatkhana is not social-boycott. It would be social-boycott if reformists were told not socialise with the orthodox. This is not the case. On the other hand, social-boycott is still being practices by the kothar everywhere. Stop being dishonest and deceptive.aqs wrote:Wow so if you dont allow Main stream in your Jamat khana then its tactical decision and the non existent baraat is a issue, Reformists are running jamaat in just one city and see what it has come to, just imagine when this Ideal role model of yours will be emulated in other cities what will be the condition definitely.
There are many compulsions, and others and I have elaborated at length on this elsewhere on this forum. Also some people have a tendency to "escape from freedom" as Eric Fromm has said. Being a reformist requires courage and commitment and not many people have either the stomach or the heart for it. And as Aldous Huxley has said that after a certain conditioning people begin to love their slavery.aqs wrote:you have freed yourself from the clutches but what was the reason that people left your freedom and went back to "bondage of slavery".
Really? Dictating people what to wear, how to shit, whom to vote has nothing to do with interference!!! Besides, people have been conditioned to "go ask for suggestions" - a not so subtle way to control and manipulate their lives.aqs wrote:no one interferes, people go to ask for suggestions, no one pushes them down their throats
You are in extreme denial. If you want to be willfully blind no one can force you to see.aqs wrote:I have already agreed before that if someone is elevating his(tus) status to what he is not then its Gulu.
and your relative like countless other Bohras is doing shirq though unknowingly. If corrected they can realize their mistake
Can you please elaborate on each one of them (perhaps on a separate thread) as I want to find out how much of Maula's and Kotahar's money, effort and resources are used in these schemes.aqs wrote: Qardan hasana, Rasme Saifee, Huge infrastructure projects, discounted travels to Maqamat Muqaddasa, business counselling, giving newly constructed houses to the needy, repairing old dilapidated houses where ever needed and asked for. list can be quite long
