i agree with you to a very large extent Humsafar saab.Humsafar wrote: ↑Tue Nov 01, 2022 12:03 pmI want to sympathise with these stupid, misguided souls but cannot bring myself to do so. It is because of people like these we've clowns like Mufaddal. To me, this crawling on all fours is the worst act of slavishness I've seen Bohras stooping to. This is true, unmistakable regression--it is as if the evolution never happened. From being upright, dignified humans -- the ashraful makhlukaat -- Bohras are reverting to being bonobos. Regression it may be but it is no mean achievement. The mafia clergy has accomplished this feat in a span of one generation. Contrast this with the evolutionary process, it took millions of years for quadruped monkeys to evolve into biped humans! I had given up on Bohras a long time ago but there was always some hope. Even that hope is dashed now.zinger wrote: ↑Tue Nov 01, 2022 4:36 am while i can understand their sentiment, maybe a mannat, IMHO, this is like people rolling towards Balaji temple and again, IMHO, such mannats should be avoided
there are other ways to thank whomever you prayed too, for intercession, like maybe do their ziyarat, maybe sponsor a ziarat for someone else etc.. but i feel that this walking/crawling/rolling etc should be avoided. i am not going to get into a debate of this being an Islamic/Non-Islamic practice, because with my limited knowledge, i think it clearly falls under the latter
once again, i respect their sentiment, but perhaps they could have been dissuaded from doing... but then again, if the only person who can stop them has happily given his "blessings".. what more can i say
when i see the Bohra youth today, i am absolutely astounded and boggled, for the extent to which they have allowed themselves to be brainwashed.
correct me if i'm wrong but somehow, i feel people were still more dignified and sober during the time of Burhanuddin Maula.
with Muffy Maula, i feel that people, even the young ones (and perhaps especially the young ones) have thrown their logic, common sense and intellect right out of the window
the amount of fanaticism on display today is astounding... i dont even dare call it as devotion.. it is literally blind worship
i guess that even if Muffy Maula ask people to do something absurd... i am sure they will come in droves to fulfil his wish... and i pray i never see the day
