He has started a new trend.... every bohra has to compulsarily do matam for 1 hour after maghrib namaz during which time all the lights in the masjid are switched off. The matam is not done sitting on masalla but by standing up. Only then are the thaals given, one can imagine the plight of bohras who have to first undergo rigorous matam rituals for an hour and that too on an empty stomach. By the time they reach their respective homes it is almost 10pm.
Malik-ul-chuster's PRO is run by his loyal chamcha, Kutbuddin whose duty is to catch hold of any and every bohra and coax them into giving ziafat to Chuster. The ziafat rate is Rs.1.52 lacs and it also comes in a package of Rs.2.52 lacs which includes the title of Mulla. Kutbuddin was once a lower middle class bohra who is now rolling in crores, it is also a talk of the town in kandivli that he has 2 wives, one in Mumbai and the other in London.
Apart from the usual exhorbitant wajebat, every bohra family is now required to pay a minimum of Rs.5,200/- towards 'Ramzan Niyaz'. The expense of one day niyaz comes to Rs.75,000/- only so one can multiply the compulsary amount required to be paid by every bohra family and multiply the same with the number of families. To give an example of the number of bohras residing in kandivli one can take the example of Mumbra wherein 2400 families are residing at present. There are a number of wealthy sheikhs who sponsor the niyaz themselves for quite a number of days. Hence the surplus amount generated by this 'Niyaz scheme' can be anyones guess. All this multiplied by the ziafats and mullah titles, chuster's daily salams plus his 10% cut in wajebat results in chuster minting a few crores in a period of one month. No wonder he always says in his bayans "Main jem Houston na logo ne upar layo chu, em kandivli na logo ne pan upar laavis". Now what does he mean by "Upar" is anyones guess !!

ghulam muhammed wrote:Bohras of kandivli were very disgusted with Malik's antics but due to the month of ramzan and the fear of inviting trouble during the payment of dues they were tight lipped. As ramazan is over, Malik's stupidity is now being discussed within their individual circle of friends with great anger, some of it are as under :-
1) Malik used to reside in khandala throughout ramzan and came to the kandivli masjid to lead prayers on a daily basis. Due to traffic hassles, many a times he landed quite late for maghrib namaz due to which he led "Qaza namaz".
2) His routine of coming late created lots of trouble for kandivli bohras as their iftaari was delayed and the subsequent daily jaman too was delayed, firstly due to his late arrival and the subsequent compulsary 1 hour matam which was done after the lights were put off. During the course of matam many bohras experienced fatigue and used to sit down to take some rest but on seeing anyone sitting down the volunteers immediately charged towards them and made them stand up and complete the 1 hour matam ritual.
3) It seems that Malik is trying to find a place in the "guinness book of saifee mahal" as he is probably the only zaada who has managed to take 30 ziafats in ramzan and wants to achieve a feet of 40 ziafats due to which he is still stationed in kandivli although ramzan is over. He has promised to leave kandivli only after he completes a "chellum" of ziafats i.e. 40 ziafats. He has earned a few crores in his short stay by way of ziafats, pagla, salams and the 10% cut on kandivli's wajebat which he is entitled for as per the rules of kothar.
