- Request to take preventive action under Crpc 151 as I am from Mumbai and have come to perform last rites of my uncle Abdul Aziz Bhimani.
Ramzan charaniya had yesterday abused me and threatened me while I was performing last rites of my uncle in Padegaon JK and there is apprehension he will do the same today evening @ 7 pm while performing my religious ceremony after the burial of my uncle I need police intervention if he does it today also kindly go through the message send to our President.
Ya Ali Madad President Saheb
This is to inform your kind self yesterday our family members had gone to attend ziyarat dua of my uncle Abdul Aziz Bhimani in Padegaon Jamat Khana with relatives who had come from Canada and other centres of India during that time The maji mukhi started abusing and threatening me with dire consequences in the JK itself and he even had the audacity to say I keep Jalallmukhi in my pocket as Jalallmukhi is under his obligation, the present Mukhee did not intervene, As Mukhee and Leaders of Ismaili Jamat you are expected to bring unity in the Jamat but here the division and partition is encouraged
What an awful impression was created in the minds of relatives who came from Canada they were shocked how can a Maji Mukhee behave like a Gundaa in JK that too abusing and using filthy language like a street chaap tapori in front of ladies.
If the Maji Mukhee wants to have dialogue I am ready for it at the appropriate forum and not when the family is in deep grief and performing last rituals in the JK or if he wants to prove that he is a big goonda of Aurangabad and even council is afraid of him I do not mind to face him alone at the place of his choice but it should be at appropriate time and place.
Today chaliswa dua is kept in Padegaon JK after telephone conversation with Mukhee that the Maji Mukhee will not create any scene or else we will keep chaliswa dua in fazalpura JK but Mukhee has assured no unpleasant situation will arise by maji Mukhee.
But to be on the safe side we are informing the police to take action if any law and order situation arises as an Indian and as an Ismaili we are law abiding citizen.
Even after the assurance of the Mukhee and informing the president if any harm or misbehavior is done to any member then the entire leadership will be held responsible.
Kindly listen to the clip of my phone conversation with the Mukhi (main priest) of Padegaon Jamat Khana to understand the gravity of the situation.
Ya All Madad
