Let me summarize the feelings of the reformists/progs (especially Insaap, Ajger, Adeeb and their chelas who either watched this event themselves or got the briefing from their chamchas)....
It ought to be clear to most on this forum that there is a certain species of abdes whom evolution has passed by and they have failed to develop a neo-cortex. Prime examples of this species are pesticide and profaner.
For those who believe that the entire Reform movement is represented by a few who contribute to this forum, I have to say this. S. Insaf was not among those who demanded, at least on this forum, that nass should be 'jali' or made publicly. What has happened is that Sayedna has met the demands for nass jali which was first demanded here.
When the non-public nass was announced, these species of abdes was reticent in their celebration. Only when the demand for public declaration was met then they got emboldened to denounce those who, they say, still refuse to acknowledge it. However, demand has been met and there is no reason for any reformist to doubt it anymore.
Having said all that, my experience in talking to ordinary Bohras was that there was a lot of dissatisfaction about secrecy of both Sayedna's illness and the nass before the latter was made public. It is clear that Sayedna was very much aware of the danger of not announcing nass jali and, thankfully, he cleared the situation as soon as he was able. That was a reasonable demand on this forum and, I believe, from a vast majority of Bohras.
