Dawoodi Bohra in media 2017

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.

Can FD explain why Dalai Lama deserved one more award on top of countless awards DL has already achieved. This award is minute to the Nobel peace prize.

What transparency was used and who were the shortlist of contenders.

We're there any major religious community represented like Deobandi or RSS.
It was a son giving an award in the name of his father with his personal money. If you wrote a check to the Cancer Society, you would not want someone asking you why not the mental-health society? With our limited resources we all contribute to causes we believe are worthy.

Br Bohra Spring
Just because he got Nobel Peace Prize, does not mean that he can NOT be recognized by other lesser awards
I do not think giving a small plaque or award is big deal and sometimes those small awards are more revered as it is given from the heart and sincerity.

It is indeed farcical to read ad infinitum posts on topics as bowl relief, 'purity' of post-nikah venues, STS' ground-breaking appearance with Dalai Lama, etc. One must see them as diversionary tactics; as the court case grinds on, the outcome of which is in the ever-receding horizon. At stake is the massive wealth and the continued assurance of its source. Abdes and reformists are held to sway on the pronouncements of these two camps. Doled out in white wraps akin to toga, heralded by military-outfitted guards(!), adulated by hysterical palms-joined adherents in fenced off pens. Having primed the crowds, SMS/STS serve ladlefuls of 'farmaans' the topics which we spend (waste!) so much time and energy on.

And i am unable to decide how SmS is going low .
By ani ding by sharia is going low , to make people use indian toilet is going low . In australia the goverment is converting western toilets to indian type as it's health department has already suggested see
https://www.google.co.in/url?sa=t&sourc ... Jzn7Dpfq_c

Even china is concentrating on toilets .
Even our prime minister is doing that . All are going low and you people by using western toilet are going high.
You are making fool of urself .
And indian toilets are benificial for health .
You can google it . Whats wrong in that . May be there way of approach is wrong but not the intension behind it .
Absolutely nothing wrong with the Indian toilet. Prefer it over a western one myself. So I use a squatty potty. Have done so for years. However my spouse prefers the western one and the squatty potty makes it easy for us to use the one we like. The point is that these are personal decisions and the religious leader does not need to conduct surveys and carry on wrecker attacks on people’s toilets and use high pressure tactics to get them to convert their toilets. This does not pass the smell test for a well intentioned message. This is no way to “guide” a people. It is a way to harass a people. It is intrusive and uncalled for.

It is the dialogue in the community that has become low. Not just the potty!
SMS said this to make us aware about the hygiene involved when praying namaz . Paakizzgi nai rehti. And it also makes ur clothes not fit for namaz . If so ever you have gone to madresas and learned all the things related to namaz and all . And with that if your health also gets effected then why not . Just go and google search the effects of western toilets and the intension to create this . Even the western people are trying to make people aware of its negative problem and what if it was made for the people with physical problem why the other people want to use that which is bad for their health . They can use the indian one . And to tell this thing is not bad . In the manner that few people are trying to potrait the scenario . And not in every city the amils have done this they have recorded the things with almost sensitivity and requested then to change by showing them the problem that happen in the long run to the people using the western toilets. Few amils are idiots not all . For them you just can't blame all the good i intentions behind the initiative ..
