Any idea why lately Jamatkhanas are given the fancy Arabic name of "Movaid" (though such name is not found in Arabic dictionary) and all Dawoodi Bohra Jamats everywhere are given the Farsi name "Anjuman"? Why this allergy with the names like Jamatkhana and Dawoodi Bohras.
My personnel opinion
Jamatkhana is used by Aga Khanis also so might be Kothar wants to have a separate identity in our meeting places also, And Mawaid is very well in Arabic language, A egyptian friend confirmed the same (might be Porus or Husain_KSA can throw some light)
their is no allergy with word Dawoodi Bohra but the name is part of our identity, city wise organisations are given name starting with Anjuman, now we cant call them Dawoodu bohra XXX(name) can we ?
