We thank our dedicated TZML member for informing us about the message
posted by a Framroze Sorabji Mirza.
Mr. Framroze Mirza, who calls himself a "Dasturji" is propagating and
practicing quite the opposite of what our religion teaches us. Prayers
for Zoroastrians opting for cremation or any other mode of disposal
and also advocating intermarriages and Navjotes of children of
intermarried couples is something that is not to be encouraged, but
condemned in no uncertain terms.
Our intention to air this message on TZML is to warn readers of this
errant priest and others like him who will not hesitate to sell their
souls and their religion to earn money and fame.
Now that these heretics have boldly started their advertising
campaign, the orthodox lobby has to be extra vigilant and steer clear
of such din dushmans and at the same time prevent other gullible
coreligionists from treading on the wrong path.
May Ahura Mazda grant them wisdom.
