Why is Alnaz Jiwa included in the Lawsuit?

It turns out that Alnaz has no role in the publication and a minimal role in the distribution of the KIZ Farman book series. The reason he was included in the lawsuit seems to be due to a confusion on Mr Sachedina's part.

Are Farmans made Available to Non-Ismailis?

ITREB is manned 100% by ismailis who have taken the ismaili oath of office. The IIS is manned at all levels by many non-ismailis who are not bound by the constitution. Why then, are Farmans asked to be sent to IIS and not ITREB?

Contradiction: Did Sachedina give Nagib's address to Michelle Parkes?

Contradiction: Who mentioned Nagib Tajdin's Name?

Sachedina's Affidavit says that the Imam mentioned Nagib Tajdin's activities to Sachedina. His earlier testimony says he knew nothing of Nagib's actions before he started working at Aiglemont. Now, Sachedina says that he is the one who mentioned Nagib's name to the Imam.

Has Imam spoken to LIF, or is there a huge conspiracy against the defendants?

Gray tried to show that if the defendants are to be believed, then it would mean that there is a huge conspiracy of dozens of corrupt leaders, staff, and that this is unbelievable.

Is the Imam concerned about the website?

Mr Sachedina states that there is a general concern about the contents of ismaili websites, and a review is pending, however, Mr Sachedina also says that Mr. Nagib himself has been part of the solution.

Where the Farman Dissemination Policy of March 2010 Comes From

The Farman Dissemination Policy document of March 2010, submitted to court by the Plaintiff party, does not come from the Imam or from Aiglemont, it comes from Mohamed Manji.

Significance of Mehmani

A Murid is quite entitled to speak to his Imam during Mehmani. Imam does listen, interact with and guide Murids during Mehmanis. Although reluctant, even Mr Bhaloo came around to this conclusion.
