Letter # 5 to Parsi Irani Zarthoshti Re BPP Elections‏

From: Hushtasp Bhumgara

Subject: Letter # 5 to Parsi Irani Zarthoshti Re BPP Elections‏

September 30, 2008

Fellow Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis

This is the fifth and last e-letter before the Bombay Parsee Punchayet
(BPP) elections take place starting on October 4, 2008.

Once again, I humbly encourage the Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis residing in
Mumbai to exercise your franchise, and make your VOTE count.

I feel I owe an explanation about why I have chosen to voice and share
my opinions. First and foremost, I am a Parsi Zarthoshti and I am a
Canadian.

Canadians also support democracy and strive to promote peace.

It would be GREAT if the Parsi/Irani Zarthoshti community in Mumbai
could deliver a strong message to the AFP in particular, by not
supporting any of their endorsed candidates. Yes they may have
impressive resumes, however do they really have what is required in
the position of a BPP trustee?

Your support for the WAPIZ Team and three other independents whose
viewpoints generally concur with the WAPIZ Team's Vision for the BPP,
will ensure that the new Board of BPP trustees can work cooperatively
to serve the community.

Help WAPIZ to Preserve the Past, and Protect the Future. Your children
and future generations will thank you.

Help to bring in STRONG LEADERSHIP for our community, and show the
strength of traditionalism and solidarity of the Mumbai community to
the rest of the Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis living elsewhere.

Send a strong message to the Liberal Reformist Parsi press that their
meddling in BPP affairs and biased reporting will not be tolerated.
Let them know that the brave, well-informed and independent-thinking
Parsi/Irani Zarthoshti living in Mumbai will not be that easily
influenced and subverted.

Help to Protect and Preserve what has been specially endowed to the
Parsi/Irani Zarthoshti community of Mumbai.

Please – Vote for the WAPIZ Team plus Three independent candidates,
and help to begin an era of harmonious and honest leadership for our
community.

Yours truly,

Hushtasp R. Bhumgara C.E.T.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your interesting updates about our ongoing BPP elections. I am a TRADITIONAL Parsi from Bombay and I fully support WAPIZ, although not being in India at the moment, I am unable to caste my vote. I am very eager to know the outcome of the elections. Could you tell me when the final results are going to be announced, and if there is a website which gives updated information on this? Thank you very much. Best Wishes...
