List of high profile bohras in world

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.

Mr. Fakhruddin Valika; a philantrophist in every sense of the word. He is the one and only who built the entire Haidri complex in Karachi in the 1960's and distributed free housing for hundreds of bohri's. To day his name is completely wiped out from the plaque that was embeded in the haidri grounds and replaced by moula nu karam ane ehsaan and su eni nirali shan. but the truth stands forever. It was none other than the Valika family that took upon their shoulders to provide a roof over the heads of the poor bohri's other than the numerous charity work of feeding and clothing the bohris. The Valika hospital and valika school at napier road Karachi is also a valika charity replaced by moula nu ehsaan. The old timers know the glaring truth.

it seems einstine was also shia muslim

An Iranian cleric claims that the Albert Einstein, the great 20th century scientist who developed the Theory of Relativity, was a Shiitie Muslim, Israel Radio reported on Saturday.

The report cites a video by Ayatolla Mahadavi Kani, described as the head of the Assembly of Experts in the Islamic Republic of Iran, who says that there are documents proving the Jewish scientist embraced Shiite Islam and was an avid follower of Ja’far Al-Sadiq, an eighth-century Shi’i imam.

In the video, Kani quotes Einstein as saying that when he heard about the ascension of the prophet Mohammed, “a process which was faster than the speed of light,” he realized “this is the very same relativity movement that Einstein had understood.”

The ayatollah adds: “Einstein said, ‘when I heard about the narratives of the prophet Mohamad and that of the Ahle-Beit [prophet's household] I realized they had understood these things way before us.’”

Reports of Einstein’s affinity to Islam circulated in 2012 as well, when the grandson of the late Ayatollah Hossein Borujerdi claimed the scientist was “corresponding with the cleric and had admitted Shia Islam was the most scientific and just religion in the world.”
