Can you share your reason why Bohras in a country like Pakistan which has a strong Islamic environment , school education that teaches Islamic culture, traditions that still have die hard abdes who practise hard core orthodox Bohraism , slaves for SMS .
Is it a few who are like that or the majority.
I have met many Bohras from Pakistan in the west and they are as or more fanatic then indian or African Bohras .
I also find a unique segregated mindset in many of them where they seat within their own thaal, socialise amongst themselves and to make their point they start speaking in Urdu . They are the least socially interrelated group in overseas. Is that how they also operate within Pakistan where they have their own classed grouping ?
Pakistani society on the whole is facing corruption. Pakistani society consist of different sects: Sunnis,Shias,Hari paagr,Ahle sunnat,Memons,Ismailis,etc.All sects practice their sect openly and most of these practices are far from the teachings of Islam. Dawoodi Bohras in Pakistan are considered very honest,true,down to earth and peace loving. It is only memons that consider dawoodi bohras kafir.Bohras in pakistan have turn a deaf ear to all the problems of the country. All Mulla kids go to badri school or MSB and they kind of education they get from there only makes them more illiterate.Yet there are many Pakistani families who have given up on these false belief. Mostly girls have taken the step to save their next generation.
I doubt all people in west being die hard abdes or fanatic because most of them belong to upper middle class and this class in Pakistan do not go to masjid. They have a free will, Just pay the money these culprits require and enjoy their life the way they want to.Yes indians and Pakistanis do not go well along with each other.It is only because of the cultural difference and not because Pakistani's do not want to.
When you are abroad , it really feels good to talk to people from your own country as they understand your culture and the difficulties you face in a new country. It is just about rejoicing some memories of your country. Nothing the way you have portrayed.
yes class system is very common in Pakistan. A person from adam masjid,hydri,etc is considered lower and a person from Shabbirabad modrern,well educated and respected. This is only beacause of these iditos, their conspiracies and false religious teachings.
