||Who & What are the Bohras?|
The bohras are am ethnic
group in India and Pakistan, originally a hindu caste, most of whom today are
Mustali ISMAILIS. They are under the leadership of a Da'i Mutlaq, or "Absolute
Preacher." They were created in the 11th Century C.E. Most bohras are Daudi
Ismailis, and they are the ones covered here. Their headquarters is in Bombay.
Amongst the notable beliefs of the bohra which have taken them outside the
Muslim ummah are:
1) The Quran is False
Bohras believe that when Umar(ra) was collecting
the quran, he omitted parts of it relating to Ali(ra) being the real Caliph.
They believe they alone posess the 'real' quran, and it is with their Da'i
Real muslims completely refute the claims of the bohra concerning the false
quran, there is no evidence for it what so ever, and is clearly a lie made up by
the enemies of Islam; the bohras.
2) Lying and Concealment of Belief
This is an essential part of the bohra faith. It is an everyday practise, the
bohras believe that if one of them tells the truth about their religion, such as
the false quran, he has committed a great sin and will be expelled from their
community. Bohras also believe they gain reward from decieving Muslims, and
making the character of muslims look bad.
Lying has no place in islam at all. Honesty is one of the most important Islamic
virtues. A muslim can only conceal his faith in matters of life or death, not in
everyday activity as the bohra do. Once agains the difference between muslims
and bohra is shown.
The bohras believe that their leader is a reincarnation of the previous leader,
who was initially a reincarnation of Ali(ra).
Reincarnation has no place in islam, and is a Hindu concept.
4) All non-Bohras are Non-muslim
The bohra believe that they are the only muslims. They have an intense hatred of
Sunni Muslims, but also of Shias, whom they claim to be a part of. They will not
reveal this because of their concept of concealment, but it can be noticed in
their devious behaviour.
Hatred is not a part of islam. Islam teaches
tolerance amongst mankind, and love of your fellow human being. Once again we
see why the bohras are not part of Islam, and should not claim to be.
Bohras in worship of their master.
