Defenses Glorifying the Aga Khan filed in federal Court - 2010-04-29

Thursday, 2010, April 29
Heritage News

In a surprisingly rapid twist of events, both Mr Tajdin and Mr Jiwa have filed their respective statements of Defense this 29th of April 2010. They affirm to being devoted followers who will unconditionally abide by the wishes of the Aga Khan, whom they glorify in their defense.

Mr Tajdin declares that:

He has not been served yet but the ethics imposed upon him by his faith demands that he should not keep in ignorance the public by being silent on the issue and should clarify all of the facts, pertaining to this lawsuit, of which he is aware.

He reaffirms his allegiance to the Aga Khan, is willing to submit to any of his wishes, and is ready to surrender himself and all his possessions to the Imam.

He has been printing Farman books since 1992 with approval and instructions from the Imam received on August 15, 1992 in Montreal.

He has not received any communication from the Imam from 1992 to 2009 instructing him to stop publication.

He cannot stop publication without instruction from the Imam as this would be a breach of his oath of allegiance to the Imam.

All Farman publications were financial deficit projects done as a volunteer service and large numbers of books were distributed free of charge.

Farman sharing is a historic Ismaili tradition which still continues today.

The current Ismaili Constitution does not restrict the right to publish Farmans

Mr Tajdin concludes that:

He has no choice but to await further direct instructions from the Imam.

He reaffirms his allegiance to the Aga Khan, is willing to submit to any of His wishes, and is ready to surrender himself and all his possessions to the Imam.

Mr Jiwa states that:

"This action does not appear to have been authorized personally by the Aga Khan .."

"In distributing Farman books obtained from Tajdin to other Ismailis, he has not violated either the Ismaili Constitution or any Farmans"

He has not violated the copyright act as "Tajdin was given express authority by the Imam" and regardless of the fact that "the limitations period provided for by the Copyright Act also bars this action as the books containing the Farmans were commenced publication in the year 1992", he will still do whatever the Imam tells him to do.

Mr Jiwa clarifies finances:

He "obtains these books for C$50.00 from Tajdin and sells it for C$50.00, without any profit.

"All monies received by him from the sale of (other) books after 2005 were delivered to the Jamatkhanas"

Mr Jiwa further states that:

"If the Imam edited the Farman before releasing to the Jamats, in effect he is superceding the Farman he made orally previously."

He "unconditionally reconfirms his oath of allegiance to his Imam" and "if the Imam does not desire his Farman books to be distributed to the Jamats (...) this defendant will submit to the instructions of His Imam without reservation whatsoever"

Replies From the Plaintiff are due within 10 days, and Affidavits of Documents are due 30 days later.

[Update from May 6: Ogilvy Renault, the law firm which launched the case has asked for an extension of 15 days to reply to the Defense. They claim delays due to breakdown of email servers, blackberry communication, travel of senior lawyer, time difference with Paris etc...The more delays in this file, the more damage it creates to the reputation of the Ismaili community, the Imam and the defendants. It is to the advantage of all parties that this case be withdrawn from the courts.]

[Update from June 22: Defendants have filed a Motion for summary Judgement to have the case dismissed.]

Bravo to Nagib and Alnaz

I've been following this case for long. Many a times I thought leaders were correct. However, after having a thorough review I found that the case is baseless.

If the case had any merit, it should be deliberating on misreporting, mispriniting or misinterpretation of Farameen in the the book. No objection has ever been raised so far by anyone that the book is misrepresenting of the actual Farmaneen.

My sympathy and full support are for these two murids.


Nagib Tajdin has been

Nagib Tajdin has been publishing since 1992. This is the final volume. For over 20 years no Leader has questioned this or said Farmans are not accurate. Mr Bhaloo in court said he was given a book and IIS were given too.

In April 2011 Hazar Imam gave authority to publish all Imams speeches and writings to Nanowosdoms a private Ismaili - Why would Imam do that ?

Sachedina and IIS say a book of Farmans and a book of Speeches are to be published ? If so why is Nanowisdoms given permission ?

Is it not because Sachedina is blocking and refusing to publish them ?

You are right. The integrity

You are right. The integrity or accuracy of Farmans in the book are not challenged or even questioned in court. nor in the LIF announcements nor in the affidavits of Sachedina, Bhaloo or Gray. On 15th October 2010 Gazar Imam personally offered Imams annotatated Farmans and allowed all those who have the book to keep the books. If there was a question of accuracy or integrity of Farmans Imam would not have agreed. Also in the Lawsuit Sacheduna Manji Keshavjee and Bhaloo and LIF chairman would have said so.

You are right

Through you, Moderator,

because ALL are cr..ks.......let us call a spade a spade.

Thank you.......................

this is what I think


This i what I think should be the motive behind this lawsuit, as far as I understand IMAM wants his murid to have all the firmans to be studied and interpreted and followed. ITREB is and has been lazy in fulfilling this MHI's wish. Nagib and Alnaz did what ITREB was supposed to do, instead of encouraging these two individuals they CONDEMN them and used MHI name. Now since MHI ordered those who already have the book should retain it, this decision of MHI is a THORN in the leadership for their inefficiency and laziness for not working the BIG BOSS'S order.

What SS and CO is trying to do behind this new appeal is try to account for every book that is out there and their owners so they can get it back by the order of this new appeal. because as per the decision of the court they can get only 10 names. if there is a single book left unaccounted for they will not be ABLE TO COPY THE ENTIRE WORK Of NAGIB AND ALNAZ and claim it as the work of IIS or ITREB and then sell it in JK for more then price of Nagib's book. If they are successsful in this Ottawa court then these 2 gentlemen will be punished for copyright infringement and they will loose all the claims the right and future right of appeal to the book and the BOOK WILL BECOME THE PROPERTY OF ITREB and all they will need is to copy the entire book maybe make few changes to the cover and claim it as their BRILLIANT WORK.

This is just a case of PLAGIARISM being brewed in DJI brewing co. PVT ltd.. Maybe I am wrong in my analysis, you be the judge.


Copy of my letter to Shafik

Copy of my letter to Shafik Sachedina LIF, ITREBS and Leaders;

I have read the motion and appeal. (link to copies below). Before appealing there was no effort made to resolve internally. Can you explain why you did not meet Nagib/Alnaz, to ask for example;

Can you please give all the names directly and only to Hazar Imam instead of giving only 10 names as directed by the Judge (and say simply we are asking because we think Hazar Imam should be given all the names for Hazar Imam to select 10 names to give to the 10 named ITREB Chairs named by the Judge).

Do you agree this will end the lawsuit/complaints, and begin a new era of working together as directed Hazar Imam. In this way Hazar Imam may also give new guidance to you, Nagib and Alnaz.

Remember Imam (and the court ) allowed all these murids to keep and share the book. And 6 months after the meeting on 15th October 2010, Imam gave permission for Imams speeches and writings to be published by Nanowisdoms. All Farmans musttherefore be given to all the muirds (see also the 69 farmans/reasons to share and work together)

Can you please also confirm or clarify the comments below.

The Judge has asked only 10

The Judge has asked only 10 names should be given by defendants but Gray want those 10 names to be those of large buyers. Obviously there is no logic because large buyers may have bought cheaper then $50 or received some free while a usual buyer would have paid $50. Also by having the defendants choose the names of the buyer who paid $50, Sachedina may end up having names of his friends or people in the leadership or even ITREB Chairmen, would they not be a lot embarrassing to him, beside that there is one of his own emails filed in Court which confirms that the books were sold for $50. LOL!.

As received. Leaders must

As received. Leaders must ask for original and signed Farmans with the annotations ? Leaders must verify the signature and handwriting ! Leaders must not believe without having any evidence ?
"According to this Farman, do you agree you must ask for evidence and NOT believe blindly what you are told. For example by Shafik Sachedina and DJI, regarding the lawsuit, Farmans, Rites and ceremonies, forgeries, complaints, LIF announcements, Talikas, budgets, positions, Programs, reports, etc.

Are there are any farmans which say you must follow blindly what you are told what Imam has said with no evidence .?

“ .. never seek to make the Imam say or imply that Imam has said things which you might believe but which you have no evidence that the Imam believes or has said ..” “ I will not be recommending what you think I should be recommending to you .. you may want the Imam to say a certain thing but if He does not say so , then do not make Him say so, because I will not do it ...If I consider the advice is wrong at a given time I will not give you that advice …” 13 December 1973

As Received " Now see how

As Received " Now see how your "Mowlana" Sachedina lied in court under oath during cross examination?
Q. You prepared the announcement? (This refers to the announcement made by "Lord" Lakhani ..who he chose only 4 locations NOT all..)
Sachedina:.." No. He (Imam) called me. He himself had done a lot of work on the announcement, and he was giving me instructions to say that these are the four countries he wants. Because originally -- normally, announcements of the LIF go global, but in this particular case, it was His Highness's wishes that to keep this announcement in only those four countries..."
When Ismailis live in some 25 plus countries and all are equally impacted by Firmans and Copyrights if it even exists, to begin with...why would the Imam do so much .....and then they after working sooo hard, restrict this announcement, to only 4 countries and exclude some 20 plus countries ? i.e.Millions of Ismailis were excluded as they were unimportant !... Then Sachedina says Imam after speaking to him Imam again dictated to Sherbanoo and she then typed the announcement - So Sachedina was stuck in a car as all Airports were closed - So who sent the LIF announcement out - was it Lakhani ? But Sachedina did not say that to the court ?

[edited by Admin]

I would say that up to

I would say that up to recently the majority of the leaders have done a very decent job.

It is only recently with the advent of the non-constitutional DJI that this has come to an end because the DJI which is non existent in Ismaili law has nobody to be answerable and accountable to except its inventor Sachedina.

If it becomes a Constitutional body, it will be answerable to the Jamat like all others Constitutional bodies but up to then, it is answerable to God only. At least this is what we are told by I-CAB to believe.

Just imagine, the Imam appoints the Leaders International Forum to be our higher body but this guy comes and put himself on top of every institutions that has been appointed by the Imam and make all of them answerable to himself.... and we Ismailis are supposed to have a religion of the Intellect... Did all these people understood the meaning of the Oath that they were required to take as appointees of Hazar Imam?

New Appeal from Gray

Here is the link to the new Docket


This is a new Docket all together. This is a Notice of Appeal filed with the Federal Court of Appeal , it is different from the Notice of Motion which Gray has filed and which will be heard in writing soon by the Federal Court.

Gray's Appeal will most probably be heard in 6 months or more in front of 3 Judges of the Court of Appeal. Just some strategy by Sachedina to prolong the case...


Court Number : A-156-13
Proceeding Category : Appeals Nature : Appeal (S.27 - Interloc.) - Others
Type of Action : Non-Action

( 2 records found )
Doc Date Filed Office Recorded Entry Summary
2 06-MAY-13 Toronto Solicitor's certificate of service on behalf of Kristin Wall confirming service of doc 1 upon Respondents (Nagib Tajdin and Alnaz Jiwa) by telecopier on 06-MAY-2013 filed on 06-MAY-2013
1 06-MAY-13 Toronto Notice of Appeal filed on 06-MAY-2013 against a decision 24-APR-2013 (Tremblay-Lamer, J.) Tariff fee of $50.00 received: yes

The agenda is clear. To get

The agenda is clear. To get all the names and to control and prolong the case.

So Mr Sachedina wants all

So Mr Sachedina wants all the names because he says H H The Aga Khan wants them and His Highness wants to personally select 10 names from the list to call or be called by ITREB Chairs? and asked if they bought the book and paid $50 for the book

Mr Gray says the Judge made a mistake in allowing Alnaz/Nagib to give 10 names.to Gray and Plaintiff ? The judge should have done what Gray wanted not what the Judge decided was fair and just.

Does the Aga Khan really want all the names from which to select 10 names so that he or ITREB Chairs can call them and ask if they bought a book and if they paid $50 for the Book. A book which the Imam and the court have authorised them to keep and share with their families and friends unconditionally.

Is this what Brian Gray is asking the Judge? If Gray really beleives the Aga Khan wants all the names, then why not discuss with Alnaz and Nagib and say the following for example;

Will you agree to give all the names to the Aga Khan directly, instead of the 10 names from which he can select 10 names to call, or give to Chairs of ITREBS to call and ask if these spiritual children bought the book and paid $50 ? (Mr Gray and Mr Sachedina do not need the names

So why new motions, & why appeal, with all the additional costs. Imam said to end the case on 15th Oct 2010, not to prolongue the case. The judge said the same.

His Highness the Aga Khan is

His Highness the Aga Khan is known for advocating and promoting pluralism, dialogue and conciliation. Not for confrontation and certainly not against his own followers who are his spiritual children.

Looks like Mr Sachedina will

Looks like Mr Sachedina will not stop at anything to win, and as he threatened to ruin these two spiritual children of His Highness the Aga Khan. Can you upload the motions and supporting documents filed by Gray.

As received And so now the

As received

And so now the question still remains unanswered....who gave this.. lawyer his fees? and from which bank account? and how much ? and from where was it paid?

Was it paid by the Vaziers and their .. members? I doubt ! Or was the fees paid from Imam's money but NOT by the Imam himself ?

It is also becoming clear by the day that the announcements made by LAKHANI in your JKs, was misleading and false.....in the same manner he and his wife have acted in front of the Imam as if they are husband and wife....when it is a widely known fact, based on his own admission that they are SEPARATED formally !!! and he is seen walking with his "Sati" walking behind him and Sachedina by his side....and so even Sachedina was a party to this farce, it seems...plus A J Dharamsey claims opnely he works for or with SACHEDINA AND SHERBANOO.... and this is simply unacceptable and horrible indeed and they should resign FROM THEIR POSTS !!!!!

Next Date in Cases in India

Dear All , Ya Ali Madad ,
on last date Hon. Judge saheb was on leave , and , being May - June vacation period , the cases were adjourned to - on 05 /07 /2013 ..... thank you.......ya ali madad .....!

We need an army of

We need an army of whistleblowers who Love the Imam, and who tell the truth and when they know Leaders are not doing what Imam is saying, they refuse to follow those Leaders and ask them to follow Imam's Farmans

Latest Judgement Appealed by Sachedina

Notice of Motion contained within a Motion Record on behalf of Plaintiff in writing to be placed before the Court in Ottawa for reconsideration of Order of Justice Tremblay-Lamer, dated 24-apr-2013 filed on 06-MAY-2013

Brian Gray who admitted in an email to Dharamsey that he takes orders from Sachedina, has appealed the decision which could have ended the case. This latest attempt to prolong the case goes directly against Imam's instructions that the matter should be put to rest.

Can you get and upload the

Can you get and upload the motion and affidavit of Gray to appeal. Hazar Imam has not signed a single afidavit in this case so this will be another motion and appeal with no affidavit from Hazar Imam.


I had last night to sleep over this appeal thing...............

There can only be one reason.....Nagib (on his own) should NOT meet with MHI as per the court's orders to hand over
the ten names.......

Obviuosly FEAR is now setting in and the end appears to be nearer............

Thank you.

Obviously filing a Motion

Obviously filing a Motion for Review and at the same time filing an Appeal is like shooting in all direction, typical of a hasty panic decision..

Not only that but Shafik

Not only that but Shafik Sachedina and Co do not want the ITREB Heads to to talk directly to MHI or the 10 names and report back only to MHI. They know now they can fool some some of the time but not all all the time.


Sad, sad, sad .............

Truth has to prevail.....

Letter and request sent to

Letter and request sent to our Leaders and Boards.

Hazar Imam has asked us to resolve all matters internally & work together. Hazar Imam also gave directions to end this lawsuit and asked Shafik and M Manji to work with Nagib and Alnaz. (15th Oct 2010). I attach my complaints to ICO which I am finalizing.

I urge you and our constitutional Boards to urgently requisition the facts to consider and pass appropriate Board resolutions. Even to recommend resignation, suspension or removal of some Board members, be it Shafik Sachedina, M Keshavjee, Aziz Bhaloo, and/or others

You have access to all the evidence. Hazar Imam has authorized and wants absolute clarity ,“….Mawlana Hazar Imam has authorised the LIF to share with the Jamaat its background, in order that there is absolute clarity .. … numerous prior efforts to address the concerns internally..”. from LIF Announcement 15th April 2010 ( But there was no contact with Alnaz Jiwa – selective internal effort by Shafik - Only Shafik not LIF not ICAB not any Presidents ? Not Mukhis? – so what sad last resort? - no clarity provided even today - Hence not respecting Hazar Imam)

Shafik Sachedina said under oath below that he was going to the airport to fly to London. All the Airports were closed due to Volcanic ash. And Azim Lakani Chairman, said he was not consulted or aware. Shafik says “'I am now authorizing you to release this announcement through the LIF. Talk to Azim, talk to everybody..” (Did Shafik talk to everybody ? and tell everybody what Imam told him to tell them ? London GJ Farman?)

Mahebub Chatur

What Sachedina said under Oath - He said was going to the Airport to fly to London – All Airports were closed ! This was 15TH APRIL 2010. Hazar Imam and Shafik were in London on 11th and 12th April 2010. Hazar Imam did not menntion this announcement to Leaders when he met them ?

Sachedina #727 - #745:
Cross-Examination by Mr Tajdin.


How can Leaders who know

How can Leaders who know this and read this, do not tell them to resign and if they refuse to vote them out as they can under our constitution. Why are they not doing this ? What are they benefiting by not doing so ?

Leaders dont accept blame

Leaders dont accept blame and correct their mistakes. So they blame others !

Ugandan teachers ‘less interested in professional development
The teachers say
" Ms Elizabeth Gabona, the director of higher technical vocational education at the Ministry of Education, - teachers who apply for scholarships are often out-competed by other professionals because of substandard essays. - teachers still use outdated teaching materials which are not at par with the modern trends that use the Internet. Ms Gabona said teachers had a disadvantage in gaining scholarships because they could not defend their cases ?

What the top Leaders says " at a dinner hosted for educationists "Mr Mahmood Ahmed, the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) resident representative, said he was dismayed by the low uptake of scholarships by Ugandan teachers he said, adding: “His Highness the Aga Khan believes in world standards where it is no longer acceptable for mediocrity to be the order of the day in the developing world,” he told the guests.

So what has he done in the last 15 years to say he is dismayed ? Does he not know the reason? Or he wants to blame others for his mistakes which he does not want to admit or correct?

With multi positions and interests and such a busy schedule I wonder how did he get time to write a book. If he is a paid employee of any of the institutions and wrote even a single pages during his employment or used any resources from any of the institutions inventory, he just sow the seed of mistrust and dishonestly and misuse of power.

AKDN new Head in Afghanistan

AKDN new Head in Afghanistan and kyrgistan (untill a new head there is appointed) - Nurjehan Mawani says to students and Leaders present.
"...Pluralism means respecting and recognizing diversity and the right of each and every individual and community to participate fully in society. you are living pluralism – working together, living together and bridging differences to
improve your community and your society. Pluralism is part of your make-up – it is second-nature.

Sadly, across the globe, pluralism is all too often rejected, mainly based on fear: fear of the unknown, fear
of change, fear of the other perspective. This rejection, dear graduates, breeds much of the destructive
conflict in our world today as people go to war over ideology and resources, attack each other for being
different, or sometimes for challenging the status quo.
Be true to yourselves always, and to your ethics and values.."

Will there be any Change by walking the talk, or more of the same ?

"Subject: WHY & The solutions Ismaili families still suffering - shortage of food and warm clothing - Helpless Ismailies asking for HELP since 22 december 2012 REMINDER

Why are so many Ismailies extremely poor and helpless ? Despite a heavy presence of the Jamats institutions and resources ? Despite GJ goals, funds & Farmans given 6 years ago.

Hazar Imam says, Leaders at the top with governing authority, need to foster an “enabling environment” which encourages the Jamat and leaders at lower levels. If Leaders don’t, then progress in the community will be severely restricted. Leaders at the top are not. Read what Hazar Imam says on enabling and assisting ; https://www.facebook.com/notes/nanowisdoms-archive-of-imamat-speeches-in...

After creating an “enabling environment” which encourages creative endeavour. IF Top Leaders do not work together with the Jamat (Lower level), progress of the Jamat as a whole will be severely restricted. Top Leaders are not at present). Read what Hazar Imam says; https://www.facebook.com/notes/nanowisdoms-archive-of-imamat-speeches-in...

The sooner you do what Hazar Imam says, the sooner the Jamats “entire”, intellects and resources can be used for the benefit of the Jamats. The sooner we do so , the sooner we can eradicate extreme poverty & replace walls “created” to divide, with bridges which “enable” and unite.

Please correct me if I am wrong. The Jamat is waiting for the Jamats resources you say you have to help your brothers and sisters.

Response from a leader who

Response from a leader who loves Imam and the Jamat.

" Social exclusion is systemic... The problem seems to lie in what some have called ‘class consciousness.’ When one is doing fine, and is dealing with middle or upper class people like oneself all the time, it is difficult to comprehend and care that there exist Ismailis who are very poor, living from hand to mouth. (Recall Marie Antoinette’s famous statement when told that people did not have bread to eat: she exclaimed merrily, “then let them eat cake!”).

The poor generally do not want to show their poverty, and when they come to Jamatkhana they wear their finest clothes to veil their true situation. Most of the institutional programs giving advice on matters such as finance or education are completely irrelevant to the poor because they are devised with the middle class Ismailis in mind.

When Hazar Imam initially asked institutions to look into this matter, there was complete denial that that there was poverty among Ismailis. It was only after repeated insistence on his part was there even the acknowledgement of the problem.”

Letter sent to Mohammed

Letter sent to Mohammed Keshavjee

"..Do you agree you are disrespecting Farmans of Hazar Imam and not doing even what you say you should be doing?

Farman to Jamat "... I would like you always to think of YOUR institutions as being YOUR OWN organizations “, and if they are not fulfilling your wishes it is up to you to see that you explain YOUR needs in such a manner that these organizations do fulfill YOUR wishes.” (6 December 1964)

I hope you will reconsider to meet to resolve internally, and work together as Imam wishes in Farmans.

M Keshavjee said as Head of ITREBS Globally and Head of Training and NCABS-ICABS “..The ethic of fair mediation is frequently expounded in the Quran which says: “He who shall mediate between people for a good purpose shall be the gainer by it. But he who shall mediate with an evil mediation shall reap the fruit of it. And Allah keepeth watch over everything.” … Seek reconciliation with your brother, even if he throws dust at you.” ..According to a Shia tradition, .. Jafar as-Sadiq who, for instance, is reported to have said: “The charity which Allah loves the most is the peace re-established between quarrelling parties...”

ITREB Chair UK Salima G

ITREB Chair UK Salima G Bhatia, said the following at an open meeting with the Jamat in London

Question by the Jamat.
Why are Farmans only allowed to be read in JK, and not published like they were some time ago and for the Jamat to buy them to read at home.

Answer to the Jamat
a. There is a book with Mawla Bapa which we are waiting for and this will be published by ITREB, when Mawla Bapa gives the go ahead.
b. Meanwhile reading Farmans in Jamat Khanna is the right environment to read Farmans.
c. For those who cannot get Farmans in JK or it is inconvenient they can make arrangements to go to ITREB and ITREB will arrange the Farmans you need to read at times convenient for the Jamat.
d. Alwaez’s and Teachers are given access to read Farman’s for their work. Mukhi Sahebs have and can get any Farmans they need from ITREB.

Is ITREB Chair right ?
ITREB Chair has listened to a farman read in Jamat Khanna in which Hazar Imam said to the Jamat & Leaders that you must take this Farman home to read it and share it with your families and the Jamat. So it is not Hazar Imam ITREB are waiting for. Why does she (ITREB), have them but the Jamat cannot. ? Hazar Imam has allowed all those who have the book published by Nagib to keep and share with their families. All muirds are equal. Leaders are murids first and leaders second. All Mukhis do not have all Farmans but a selection of them

Therefore ITREB Chair is not right, and is going against Hazar Imam's wishes by not getting/giving Farmans to the Jamat to take home and read and share with thrir families. She knows that ITREB UK have not been given all the Farmans by DJI (Shafik Sachedina & Company\)

@ AK


You have given a treasure chest ISLAMIC VALUES to the people in just a brief note. I thank you for your sharing of DIVINE KNOWLEDGE.
On April 24th Heritage librarian given accounts of the court order as follows:

"3. The Court further orders, as a condition of making this Order, that information will be given to the Plaintiff His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan and Plaintiff's legal counsel and the Plaintiff shall share this information only with the following named representatives of the Plaintiff, each of whom is the Chairman of the Ismaili Tariqah and Religious Education Board (ITREB) in his or her respective country: - Alijah Dr. Mohamud Amirali Karim (Canada) - Huzur Mukhiani Shahinour Nathoo (France) - Alijah Saheba Guilner Riyaaz Makaney (India) - Alijah Hassan Noorali Chatur Popat (Kenya) - Huzur Mukhi Azzim Gulamhussen (Portugal) - Rai Abdulaziz Akberali Lalani (Tanzania) - Alijah Saheba Arzina Riyaz Kurji (Uganda) - Huzur Mukhiani Salima Gowerali Bhatia (United Kingdom) - Alijah Al-Karim Sadruddin Alidina (United States of America) to be used solely for the aforementioned purpose."

My very simple observation is all the names in this paragraph are the CHAIRS OF ITREB in their local jurisdiction, Almost everyone is either an ALIJAH, RAI, MUKHIS OR MUKHANIS. Not a single regular name or general public. And, I bet you none of these ELITE ISMAILIS either is a graduate of ISLAMIC STUDIES OR ISMAILI STUDIES, no diplomas or any other credentials that could justify their appointments, but, they are also holding multiple interest. Why is this INJUSTICE when QURAN AND THE TEACHING OF HAZRAT ALI clearly have most emphasis on JUSTICE AND EQUALITY.

My personal experiences, tell you the truth I would not even hire any of them for a regular clerk's position let alone managing directors or chairs.The reason if there is ONE bad fish it is understandable but every institutions,come on, from the cleaning committee to volunteers to the chairs, the whole pond with the exception of few GOOD ONES, the balance of power is overwhelmingly in the hands of bad fishes and THEY RULE. The lawn of our community was green and lush until one bad WEED popped out, nobody killed that weed and it started spreading now the whole lawn is full of ugly weeds and very very few good green grass left.


I think a majority of the

I think a majority of the Leaders and the Jamat still do not know and have been conditioned to believe the Leaders who keep using the name of Imam. We have a culture of secrecy which suits the SS gang. Many more are now sharing questioning and waking up.

All of these people have

All of these people have either bought the book or received it free, that is a truth all the Ismailis know. All of these people know that the book was sold at $50 or less. I wonder how they will react by seeing that they are the "chosen people"

@ intregity and Librarian

you guys are both right, just for one moment think, if there is a TALIKA or some instructions to be read in the JK and that talika or instructions are ADDRESSED to the president of council, how come people know the contents of that message before they are read. Secondly, how often the most intimate details of couple getting a divorce through ICAB is made public or leaked. There are many instances this has happened the confidentiality aspect has been compromised. Now the real question is WILL THESE 10 NAMES OR INDIVIDUALS EVER BECOME PUBLIC AFTER IT IS TRANSFERED FROM MHI'S RADAR TO WHOEVER, . we will have to wait and see.


They have book

If there is a book with Malwabapa, then it was prepared by the Leadres and they have copies. So they approved them. Imam has said Jamat can have them. So why are they not giving them to the Jamat. That can only be because they want to benefit but they do not want the Jamat to benefit from them.

So why did they even bother

So why did they even bother sending it to MHI to approve it in the first place?

I don't think they had the

I don't think they had the authorisation from the Imam to print Farmans. The numbers of changes and corrections they make is mind-blowing.

There was a process in the old Constitution for our institutions to print the Farmans. Hazar Imam removed this from the new constitution.

I don't think they had the..............

Now I am totally confused.........

Mawla says in a Firman (India), My murids should take home My Firmans and talk and discuss them with their family, friends, etc..........

Mawla has removed from the constitution (maybe only 1 in 100,000) may have seen or heard about this constitution or amendments) .........(the process for our institutions to print)...

Mawla say in His GJ Firman in London My leaders are NOT telling you what I tell them to...............

So what now Umed?

Please intervene and enlighten us ignoramus's.........

Thank you,,,,,,,,,

The burden is on the Murids

The burden is on the Murids to take home the Farmans. Not to rely on someone to spoon-feed them the Farmans.

Which ever Murid desire to take home the Farmans will have to do his own arrangement which practically is not difficult, If there is a will, there is always a way, and where there is not, the Imam will make the way..

All of you want the farmans. The question is, how many really want them, how many fight to get them, how many deserve it?

If Gold and Diamond were found in the street or in the trees, they would not be precious. Whatever is precious in this world deserve the effort to get it.

What about 50% of the

What about 50% of the Farmans which are hidden ? What about Imam's annotations ? What about the wordly Farmans and economic Farmans which Imam said Leaders are not passing on ? What about the Jamats resources and reports being blocked ?

IF Murids who are working closely with those who are blocking decide to tell the truth and share, then the Jamat will have them all. I agree the burden and responibility is on the Muirds. Every murid must ask, share and do what Imam says. .

The burden is on the Murids

Very, very sorry Umed.......I did not make myself clear enough......

I am totally with you that whoever desires will somehow be able to get whatever he/she desires.......

That is not my query. My confusion is regarding different comments about printing and making them available. At one place MHI wants us to read and discuss His Firmans and He says that the leaders are NOT...etc. Then, I now read a new comment about the constitution wherein MHI has removed the process for the printing of the Firmans.

Does this mean that we should leave aside all leaders and institutions and search for the "Precious Gems" ourselves? Since no printing will ever take place?

BTY.... I DID procure the GJ FIRMAN book and will never give it up now that MHI has given us the permission.

Thank you.

Letter to ITREB UK and

Letter to ITREB UK and President UK

" I have asked, and not read or listened in JK, to any Farmans which say Hazar Imam does not want his murids to have or take Farmans home to read, understand, & to share them. On the contrary, I have many which say the very opposite. And so do our earlier Imams and the Quran.

I have also sent many Farmans to Salima (Chair ITREB UK), and the attached 69 reasons/Farmans. (updated 18 April 13). This excludes the Farman read last week in WL JK (Central Asia) in which Imam asks murids/Leaders to take Farmans home to read and understand. Do you therefore agree this Farman is not superseded, or it would not have been read in JK. Will you please give me a copy of that Farman to read at home ? Since this farman is current do you agree Muirds can take farmans home to read.

I ask Salima and President Amin to reconsider and start giving farmans to interested murids to take home to read and to their loved ones in hospices or dying. ( Also If earlier books and booklets of Farmans published are sold in JK & can be given, then why not later Farmans).

Do you agree, all Farmans Hazar Imam makes are for the benefit of his murids. You are a murid & were appointed to “serve all murids, and in serving murids you are serving Hazar Imam (from a Farman). Farmans are made for the benefit of murids. How can they benefit, If they do not have them to study, understand and share with their families and children ? "

The Judge says clearly that

The Judge says clearly that the Court beleives that this matter should be brought to a conclusion forthwith.in view of the limited scope of the financial issue.and the extent of the resources allocated"

Hazar Imam said on 15th October to put this matter to rest. The Judge is saying the same, and the judge has cleverly made the order so that Gray has to speak only to H H The Agakhan and give the names only to him and no one else..

Will Shafik Sachedina now end this and resign or will Leaders and Boards table this on their formal and informal Board agandas ?

Shukhr - A copy of my letter

Shukhr - A copy of my letter to Salima Bhatia UK and cc to Leaders, NCAB and ICAB. I hope Leaders will now work together and end this case as directed by Hazar Imam on 15 October 2010.

Dear Salima,

"See order below. You are also mentioned in this court order.

The motion of Nagib and Alnaz was granted. 10 names will be given with a specific condition. The names are not to be given to Shafik Sachedina or M Manji or Azim Lakhani or M Keshavjee or A Bhaloo or DJI.

The court orders that only Hazar Imam can personally share these names with you if Hazar Imam wishes. This is from my first reading of the ruling. I assume you will ask lawyers in NCAB and ICAB to advise you, if my understanding is incorrect.

Therefore if you get these 10 names from any other source that would be a breach of the court order. Even if you get from Mr Gray or DJI or others. The use of names is limited to litigation. The Judge realised this is a witch hunt.

Best Regards and Ya Ali Madad

Who is teeling the truth.

Who is teeling the truth. As received.
".Most important - The Judge decided that Nagib and Alnaz are telling the truth. Read and Judge for yourself
1 Why the Judge does not want S Sachedina and A Bhaloo to be given the 10 names of Ismailis who bought the book (which Imam has said they can keep and share)
i. Because the Judge believes Nagib and Alnaz are telling the truth.

2 Why the Judge ruled, that even Gray cannot give the 10 names to anyone else, other than personally and only to Hazar Imam ?
i. Because the judge believes that Nagib and Alnaz are telling the truth

3 Why did the Judge say that only Hazar Imam can personally give the 10 names directly to the named Chairs of ITREB –
i. Because the Judge has decided Nagib and Alnaz, are telling the truth, and
ii. The judge therefore wants Hazar Imam to directly and personally talk to the named ITREB Chairs. Not Via Brian Gray, or DJI, or Shafik and or M Manji and or LIF or A Bhaloo.

4 The Judge does not want the 10 names to be given to Shafik Sachedina or to Aziz Bhaloo even though they are the only ones who gave an affidavit without being asked by Hazar Imam
i. Because the judge believes Nagib and Alnaz

5 Why did the Judge say that the 10 names of those who bought the book is to be only used to check the price. Nothing else whatsoever.
i. Because the judge believed Nagib and Alnaz are telling the truth regarding inter alia witch hunt, marginalization, misinformation, misleading information, threats including to ruin, inciting and or making death threats, and or physical violence against Nagib and Alnaz. Remember Alnaz was attacked inside the Jamat Khanna and what the Judge said in his Judgment in favour of Alnaz.


Will Sachedina, Bhaloo, & Manji do what Hazar Imam said on 15 October 2010, in Farmans and our constitution, and .
• Will they end this case and work together with Nagib, Alnaz (and the Jamat), OR
• Will they continue on the path of confrontation and making a mockery of our constitution, our Farmans and our community.
I urge all our Leaders to facilitate a meeting to work together internally as Hazar Imam has directed us to do in Farmans and in this case on 15th October 2010.

Brian Gray can only give the

Brian Gray can only give the 10 names to His Highness the Aga Khan personally, and to no one else.

His Highness the Aga Khan share the 10 names personally and only with the ITREB Chairs listed, for the sole purpose of confirming the price paid for the book if any ! (We know Hazar Imam said on 15th October 2010 and Imam allowed the books to be retained and is not interested in the price or the costs..

Therefore If any Leader gets the 10 names from anyone other than His Highness the Aga Khan, there is a breach of the court order and contempt of Court.

When Brian Gray gets the names and then gives the names only and personally to His Highness, he will have to explain why the case was not ended as directed by the Aga khan on 15th October 2010.

One more point

Based on this "The Court further orders, as a condition of making this Order, that information will be given to the Plaintiff His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan and Plaintiff's legal counsel"
I think we can also all out to rest the MHI was and is truly the Plaintiff indeed and not SS. Am I correct?

A judge refers to the Plaintiff

A judge never adds more than the plaintiff - in this case the Judge added the name - why do you think the Judge added the name and not just referred to the plaintiff , as simply the plaintiff - you have you answer if you really want to know the truth.

The Court knows the truth.

The Court knows that the Imam can not go to this extend of vendetta. Justice Gorewitch said that the case was conducted by the Aga Khan OR his advisers. This Court now knows Hazar Imam has nothing to do with the witch hunt. She gave to Gray his own medication.

Above all, on 15 October 2010 Hazar Imam told Gray "Put the matter to rest!" What did this Court say 3 years later? The beginning of the Order is an eye opener, almost as if Hazar Imam had inspired the Judge, she says "Upon considering that this Court has expressed to the parties that it believes that the matter should be brought to a conclusion forthwith, in light of the limited financial scope of the debate in issue and the extent of resources allocated to this file as of this date"

If they would have obeyed the Imam, they would not be in this situation today. Now when the ITREB Chair receive the names from SS or Gray or from some Carnegie or some Tom, Dick and Harry, they will know it is not the Imam.

Does the Order mean that; Nagib

Does this mean that;

Nagib and Alnaz will send the 10 names direct to MHI or in a sealed envelope via the President of Council in Canada?

They will also give the 10 names to Brian Gray who can only pass to MHI and cannot use them at all to check anything except the price of books sold to the 10 names

MHI if he wishes, will call ITREB chairs named personally to ask them to contact those murids to ask them if they bought a book and what price they paid for the book.

So if anyone of the 10 is contacted they must ask did MHI personally call you or told you to call and ask the price ? . If answer is no there is a breach of the court order?

Will MHI really call an ITREB chair to ask a murid when Imam has allowed him- her to keep and share the book ? And when Imam said on 15 Oct 2010 to end the case and work together. so if none of the named chairs are personally asked by Imam to call the 10 names, then this is double confirmation. If any of chairs get a letter from Imam then they must question it because
1 By sending a letter the names will be typed by someone and so names have been shared with others!
2 Nagib has submitted proof that signatures are copies not real.

Am I right ?

No, Gray will give the names

No, Gray will give the names to the Imam. That's it. The only purpose of getting the names is for ascertaining the price at which Nagib or Alnaz sold the books. That is something which they already know. So now it is evident to the Jamat that the whole process they are conducting has no other purpose except to harass everyone in the list. The Judge saw that and put severe limitations on even conducting this process.

Sorry my mistake, it is not

Sorry my mistake, it is not Gray that has to give the names to the Imam, I will have to give the names to the Imam

2. The Order of the Prothonotary dated October 29, 2012 is set aside, with the sole exception that the Court orders the Defendants to provide the Plaintiff and his legal counsel with the names of ten (10) purchasers ...

3. The Court further orders, as a condition of making this Order, that information will be given to the Plaintiff His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan and Plaintiff's legal counsel and the Plaintiff shall share this information only with ...


All along, it has been maintained that MHI is the plaintiff, (not SS or anyone else) who is legally represented by Grey. So why is it a big surprise the names should only go to MHI, who is the only one listed as the Plaintiff via Gray?

This has already been

This has already been relied, please read the thread.

The Chairs , Hon Secretaries

The Chairs , Hon Secretaries and the CEO's of the Tariquah Boards around the world were in London to meet, network and discuss the needs of the Jamat and best practice. They listened to the same individuals and discussed the same matters as before.

Guess who were controlling , watching, and managing daily , Mohammed Keshavjee, Zauhar Mehgji , and Shiraz Kabani. And, Shafik Sachedina was there and gave his usual talk day one, but then stayed in the background with the inner circle.

Did they discuss , brainstorm, or articulate any of the following needs of the Jamat?

1 Rites ceremonies and Practices to be explained and taught to the Jamat and in Bait Ul Ilm - NO
2 Lawsuit against Nagib and Alnaz or complaints , and the related issues like Mehmani and marginalization and sharing of Farmans - NO
3 Farmans and annotations to be given to the Jamat and all Mukhis - NO
4 sharing reports and having social religious and worldly audits and oversight by the Jamat - NO

What was new in the 3 days. If not, would the time and the sum of over $75000 have been better spent instead on helping Ismailies who are very poor old and vulnerable ?

Subject: Our Traditions and Practices today - ITREB Chairs meeting in London

Dear Salima, (Chair ITREB UK);

Khatam e Quran & Khairat - London Re New Girls School in Baglan

I was speaking to President when he came. Amongst others matters, he asked If I had discussed the issue of rites practices and traditions with you. I said I had a long discussion and have written and kept you informed and Alwaez G Abbas will also have kept you fully informed regarding EK jamat and related needs and issues including rites practices and ceremonies.

I would again request you to consider and implement the following;

1 You now know Khatam e Quran is a tradition practiced today in Baglan. President and Mukhi Sahib have also seen first hand. There are pictures in the presentation which I have shared.
a. Therefore the information given to you, President and Mukhi was at best incomplete and inaccurate. The root cause of this needs to be considered and addressed. The reasons can be the following;
i. The Scholars/IIS you consulted deliberately mislead you or gave incorrect or conflicting and or confusing information.
ii. The scholars/IIS you consulted did not know , and either googled or were given incomplete information (For example also Niyat. Alwaez Shiraz said he did not know and did not check. When I spoke we talked about Panjo (as you will recall)
iii. You and Scholars do not have full and complete access to all the IIS research information and or all Farmans. If you did you would have been able to verify yourselves.
b. As a result of the above this became a case of the blind leading the blind. You relied on others who were scholars/IIS, but they themselves did not know or check and verify or were not able to. Mukhi sahib relied on you/IIS. (Assuming you were not mislead deliberately – This is possible. Please see my complaints now before ICAB)
c. Please correct me and clarify if I am wrong in my assessment, especially of the root causes/reasons.

2 Therefore do you agree that other information you have and or your understandings and that of Mukhis and the Jamats, of the teaching and practice of our rites practices and many traditions may also be incorrect or incomplete or misleading.
a. You know these are not imparted or taught by IIS and ITREBS and this responsibility was transferred to Parents by Shafik Sachedina (DJI-ITREBS), and M Keshavjee (ITREBS Global).
b. Parents do not understand our rites practices, traditions, constitution and farmans fully, to articulate and let alone to teach.
i. Do you agree that this is an indisputable fact.
ii. For example this Khatam and Niyat (see emails), and other emails including feedback you have from teachers and Parents. ( I reconfirmed the feedback again last week). President Saheb confirmed Parents are told to teach but he does not know enough to teach either. Almost all parents don’t.

3 Also an indisputable Fact - Hazar Imam has said all farmans , rites, traditions and practices must be shared and explained to the Jamats. In fact a few days ago a farman (Central Asia) was read in WL JK .
a. Hazar Imam says to take Farman’s home to read understand and explain to the Jamats and our children.
b. The Jamat listened to this and the children. Including the central Asian Jamat. But they are told they are not allowed to take them home.? (see also 69 reason/farmans I shared)
c. What would you think when you hear these Farmans, and then you tell or are told you cannot take Farmans home to read and that these cannot be explained even by Al waez (who are told in writing, not to explain them to the Jamats - see Letters from ITREB, and also 69 reason/farmans)

4 In ITREB Chairs –EO’s, meeting currently ongoing in London, the above, I hope these critical issues are on the Agenda, including especially

a. Farmans including annotations to be given , explained and shared with the Jamats and all to be available to all Mukhis and ITREBS
b. All rites , ceremonies, practices and traditions imparted taught and explained by IIS and ITREBS and especially in BUI.
i. I refer to the change of mindset proposal which has yet to be addressed and implemented for 10 to 15 year old children). This is for them to be able to articulate with comfort in their daily lives and intercations making them relevant and a part of their lives. Presently as you know , not.
c. All research material at IIS be available to all ITREBS , Mukhis , Al waezeens, and the Scholars – STEP teachers, without limitations, including to interested members of the Jamats
d. Other current traditions and practices to be respected and facilitated by all Mukhis (as was done in this case by you and Mukhi for Khatam e Quran)

I look forward to hearing from you and will be happy to meet you.
Ya Ali Madad

@ Mehbub

I want to share a moment in history, heard from my elders, when Pakistan came into being in 1947 Mowlana Sultan Mohammed Shah was also a part of, that time MSMS suggested to the leaders of Pakistan to have ARABIC as its national language, non of them even considered it important advice and they choose URDU as a national language. Well that was history. But the bigger tragedy was Ismailia Association (ITREB today) never ever considered it a necessary or a valuable advice or even a SIGN FROM THE DIVINE, and never taught Arabic in any of the relegious night school or REC ( 66 years have gone by) so we can learn to read the HOLY QURAN, and even today's ITREB is completely blank on this issue, let alone KHATAM-E-QURAN. The question arises if we know how to read the HOLY QURAN, they do not teach that they dont even teach the HOLY DUA , most Ismailies do not even own a Quran in their home, we do not even have a copy in JK either, Never ever our missionaries or al waezen ever explained or even talked about it, how will ITREB learn when their teachers are blank too on this subject. WHO IS TO BLAME. All they can spent and have time for is holding classes for ZUMBA dance in JK facilities and maybe KHATAM-E-ZUMBA will become one of our rituals.

New Intitiavive

A new girls school started in Baglan, where over 95% are Ismailies.
If anyone wnats more information there is an email to contact them.

How wonderful that a few

How wonderful that a few Ismailis have started this school for the Jamat and especially Ismaili Girls. AKDN say they are making over 100 million dollars in the country and the Jamat has the largest telecom company - Roshan. How many schools have they opened in the last 5 years in this region in Ismaili villages?


What Mr Khoja with multi interests says as CEO of Roshan Telecom one of the communities 90plus companies
" The entrance of MTN and Etisalat, each among the largest regional operators, was largely motivated by Roshan’s success but immediately impacted Roshan’s market share. “We were the number one, but we got fat and lazy,” Khoja recalls, when the competition entered. “For a while we could have sank or swam. And we have come out of it much stronger. We reengineered the whole company .. ”

Is that why they were not the first to introduce 3G ? And had to take a loan for 3G and have still do not have 3G! We're Khoja and Ladak too busy with multi interests ?

Farmans on accountability.

Farmans on accountability. Imam says the Institutions are there for the Jamat and to serve the Jamat. They are accountable to the Jamat.

"[A]nd for me the most important word is accountability. WE must be accountable AT ALL TIMES to the organisations we serve and to the people we serve."

His Highness the Aga Khan's 1986 CBC interview with Roy Bonisteel (Canada)

"Let me close these remarks by asking what may seem to be an impertinent question. How do we know whether these programs are actually working or not? How do we know whether they are improving? It would be very easy to mislead ourselves on this score and to assume that because we are trying hard, or spending significant sums of money, or are inspired by noble intentions, or are holding a lot of meetings -- we must therefore be making an effective impact. But this is not always the case. And that is why it is so important that all of us should be held accountable for the results we produce -- that our work should be measured by its observable, positive impact on the quality of people’s lives."

His Highness the Aga Khan's 2007 address to the Enabling Environment Conference (Kabul, Afghanistan)

More here:
Excerpts: His Highness the Aga Khan on accountability

And here:
His Highness the Aga Khan on measuring the performance of development activities

Imam says Leaders are not

Imam says Leaders are not only accountable to those they serve which is the Jamats, and they must also be transparent, meritocracratic and competent.. " ..Towards better governance. A third caveat that AKDN considers central is that social and economic institutions, including civil society, should be governed by the concepts of transparency, meritocracy and competence. This commitment underpins the Network’s involvement in education.."

I need help

YA ALI MADAD Everyone:

For the last 2 weeks I am having some argument with ITREB and STEP principal on an event that is going to take place this coming Sunday April 28, 2013, The problem I am having is my daughter is in eight grade and the management is holding a MANDATORY class at a venue about 20 miles, in order for student to attend this class, we the parents are FORCED to sign a consent form WAIVING ALL OUR CIVIL RIGHTS AND SURRENDER UNCONDITIONALLY TO ICAB. (IF you go down I have copied that form in this forum few months ago).

Briefly, they want consent from us that we should hold the Council and every one that is associated with the event HARMLESS even in the case of DEATH of participant due to the negligence ON THEIR PART.
My fight is I am not going to sign this event consent form , and I have had lengthy conversation with ITREB on telephone I gave them the reason for my refusal to sign pointed out all the FLAWS in the consent form. Their decision today this morning April 22, 2013 is they will not allow my daughter to participate in the event UNLESS I sign the consent form which has been prepared by ATTORNEYS.

@ Pakifellah

Dear Pakifellah , Ya Ali Madad ,
If you can consider my help (as per my thinking ) ,
when one goes to Doctor , for a minor or major operation , his/her probable nearest relative has to sign a consent form , which , probably says , no problem / responsibility of doctor , for any result of this operation , what is the difference here in situations ? ........ya ali madad ...........!

@ Mansoorali Abdulrahim Noorani

YA ALI MADAD Mansoor bhai. as you live in india. the way of conducting business is way different, i think you did not go far back on this forum archives and read the content of the consent form, well let me tell you after the first incident and my objection things have gone sour. at the ICAB AND NCAB level. instead of improving for the betterment and serving the jamat they have made significant changes for the worst. please MODERATOR PUBLISH this new consent form language has been changed, and the language used.

here is a copy:

The difference is that if

The difference is that if the doctor is negligent then the patient or his/her family can bring an action under the courts.The form is for being aware of the risks the patient is taking. In this case they are saying you cant even go to the courts, or claim under insurances, or our internal courts NCABS/ICABS. Am I right Pakifellah?

The difference is that if On April 23rd, 2013 bloglaw (not verif

YA ALI MADAD Bloglaw I wanted to respond to our earlier post re: consent form but then the people would think it is too much, well thank you for the post and exactly what you say but my problem is the language and sudden changes of words from the previous, ICAB spent some money and used a lawyer to draft this new one. My first objection was an eye opener for them to rectify for good, but instead, the adrenaline of their EGO kicked in and they drafted a new one EVEN WORSE, which by MHI BLESSINGS to the Jamat, is showing ICAB AND NCAB's and ITREB'S TRUE COLORS. MHI wants us to wake up for good.

Please read the entire FORM, i contacted my attorney and he was laughing (especially to the last paragraph with bold capitalized letter) when I told him this was prepared by attorneys for the institutions. This has happened and is happening and will happen if the right people with real CREDENTIALS AND QUALIFICATIONS are not appointed. This outdated PYRAMID must be broken and demolished to make room to build a new UPDATED one with fresh leaders no connections to the present leaders WHATSOEVER. We have to draw the line somewhere ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I took a stand but parents are signing blindly just because the CONSENT FORM USES MHI NAME and the group of culprits are having a ball in misleading the INNOCENT JAMAT.



They are and should be fully

They are and should be fully insured. This is a part of their rules regulation and policies.Therefore asking for such a waiver is rediculious. Like saying because you work in our institution as a paid staff we will not insure you for employers or public liability. Because you come to JK and have an accident you cannot calim because our premuims will go up . They have this in their budgets which they must share with you. The JK is insured. The ITREB Classes are insured. The vans they go in are insured. The venue they use are insured. Tell them and ask what Insurances do they have and for copies.

Posting on this web site

Everyone will appreciate if the postings are short and strait to the point. I would even suggest if you have questions to number them and not write more than one sentence per question.

That way the discussion will be focused and people will appreciate that they do not have to go through a maze of long text to find out exactly what is being said and which are the main points.

Instead of having the reader find the main points, the writer should guide and frame the issues.

I hope this makes sense and will be followed by everyone here. Thanks


I see many letters are sent

I see many letters are sent to ICAB and Leaders which are posted. Some are long but very important for the Jamat and readers to read and think about. This is also a historical record for future readers and Leaders. Ya Ali madam.

"Long Text"

Ya Ali Madad. Umed, why does the "Long Text" issue come up when Mansooralibhai comments appear on this forum? Why you as "moderator" who should be "fair" and not "bias" bring this issue up when bloglaw(Mahebut Chatur, integrity, etc.) long, long, long, comments appear? Where is the "fairness", or are some participants on this forum exceptionals/friends?????? Some on the forum criticize our Leaders for not being fair, well then they should find out themselves whether they are fair with all the participants on this forum? Thank You.

This is not only a discussion forum but a change for the better forum. Where else can you get information you get here like constitution, ICAB NCAB etc etc...
