If anyone is aware of such a ritual by any religious leader of the times, then please share.
i also see the dullah and his friends and others wearing gold tablets around their necks during this festival and question; is this how the wealth collected in the name of our religion is spent. Is this our deen? Is this how money collected in the name of deen is to be spent?

They only give lip-service Lanat to Yazid, they only give lip-service cry to Hussain ........... they 'preach' Hussain and 'practice' Yazid .......
On this so-called milad celebrations the extreme abdes have been seen distributing sweets and mithai ....... well, ok, they are happy, but the funny thing is they are distribution with the request that Maula Mohammad Burhanuddin Na Salwat ............. and i am really shocked ...............

for the Uber tamasha. Aren't Bohris forbidden from playing or listening to any
filmi or mainstream music? (I might be wrong here - but when I was a child my
family always said that music playing wasn't allowed. Only madehs, naseehats
and other such garbage sung by closeted bailahs from jamea.
So only music for Burhanuddin and Family right?
humanbeing wrote:Majlis of Salgirah function at Kuwait Markaz was scene of chaos and boredom. After the initial fanfare, excitement, hooting, whistling, honking and revelling, people got bored and were sitting scattered in groups chatting. There was a long pause to any activity, as Amil was busy collecting plum najwa salaam covers from frantically die hard abdes who were falling over each other to get the najwa salaam done as soon as possible.
After salaams were done, screens in the markaz were lit up with recorded procession from surat. 100s and 1000s of abdes including myself watched the video on screen anticipating something meaningful to appear. It was tiresome and boring to watch an amateur video shot, it looked more like a personal family birthday shot by some rookie videomen with chaos mixed with music, band baja, confused utterances of khidmatguzaars, background traffic honks and sidekicks, bottom lickers moving around for confused arrangements.
After a while, Na Mo appeared with bunch of his political side kicks and was lead to the stage, where Sayedna Saheb was to be bought at the Throne next to Na Mo was to be seated. Battalions of Bohra Warriors (this was hilarious) marched with a snooty arrogance dressed in khaki police type uniform, saluting the head of the community and political dignitary in a national-day-parade like fashion, I was amusingly observing the reaction of dumb abde bohra around me in Markaz seeing the awestruck abdes made me giggle. Drama continued for tiresomely long time, batches and batches of abde bohras dressed in white SKT, carrying flags and golden balloons with their joint palms (namaskar, worshipping types) marching by the Sultan of Bohra community. There was a commentary going on in Urdu ? Gujarati ? Lisaan-e-Daawat ? I m not sure, but whatever it was, It was comprehensible. There were few instances where, presence and passing of Qasre-aali members were emphasized, as the grand prince and princesses were bundled on a chariot.
The entire episode of salgirah procession played on the screen was repetitive and boring. It was rather getting troublesome to hear loud relay played on overzealously increased volume of large speakers placed in the markaz. I was feeling a bit awkward and shy to get some fresh air and relax my ears for few minutes, but when I saw hordes of abde bohras leavin the markaz hall to stand in the peaceful passage outside, I took some minutes off until I heard vaza-e-funa and a hurried rush to form thaals.
PS Note : Before any abde points finger of calling me a freeloader, please note, I have my sabeel paid, hoob paid, najwa paid and hold a valid safai chitti !! I covered my food expense.
Disclaimer : No where in my personal observation of salgirah function written above, I have criticized sayedna sahib or said anything derogatory about his stature. My expression of opinion is limited to efforts of people who organized this event.
Look at picture number 1 and 9
All those chest banging Abde Regressives: can you please explain why "Ali un Wali Ullah" is missing from the DB Flag. (because this was in Pakistan?) so all that Purjosh Maatam for Imam Hussain and Ali is just a facade and show off. you shade crocodile tears on their sacrifices

when an abde bohra regressive is asked to wait for ten seconds before throwing an armed grenade, he starts to count to ten after pulling the pin. he holds it between his thighs and then starts counting the fingers on both hands....
no wonder so many abde regressives who count the way they do, are missing their balls (and bats) .. !!!!
