Bohra women tie rakhi on Modi, call him “brother”


Narendra “Nero” Modi’s hands are soiled in complicity of killing of about 5,000 Muslims that include a Dawoodi Bohra former member of Parliament, Ehsan Jafri and scores of others who were burned alive by Modi-inspired mob. Ehsan Jafri’s widow Zakiya Jafri is still fighting her battle for justice since 2002. However, she is hindered at every step by Modi-influenced courts and officials. Modi calls Muslims as “Babar ki Aulad” (Progeny of Babar). Yet Bohra head known as “Syedna”, and Kothar, his governing apparatus, send Bohras to events honouring Modi, for being cozy with Mr. Modi to protect their own wealth. As such, Mansoos Mufaddal Bhaisaheb recently while addressing Bohras, strongly advocated that Bohra women should stay home, work in kitchen, and stitch clothing. He said to Bohra women: “Rotli banavo ne kapda sivo pan bahar na jao”. Yet, you see in this picture, those rida-clad Bohra women were sent for tying rakhi to Modi and call him “bhai” (brother) and expect him to protect them knowing well that he did not protect Muslim women during 2002 riots when they were being raped and killed and roasted alive. The Bohra leader claims to be the vicegerent of Mola Ali (A.S.) who never gave up on principles even in the face of death; yet his followers’ actions are opportunistic and different.
