Re: Bohra whatsapp duniya

For the two suicide cases in my city, the mourners were forbidden to recite Sadaqallah, Fateha, etc. when they gathered at the house of the deceased's parents. They were told to partake in the Jaman, perform do no taziiat, and leave. However, both were buried, albeit in a far corner of the designate...

Re: ASHARA 1444 LONDON (2022 MOHARRAM)

The story in the Guardian is nothing to be poo-poohed. It is a result of the relentless efforts by reformists to raise the issue of FGM, etc. Among the proponents of airing issues like social boycott, coercion and verbal and physical threats are stalwarts like Haki Kapasi. She is the author of a boo...

Re: Bohra whatsapp duniya

Media thrives on evolving and current political, social, or sports issues. In the broader picture, Dawoodi Bohras are an insignificant community; and the dissidents are barely above the lowest horizon. Haki's letter would not be even sniffed at by any London county tabloid. It would be interesting t...
