Subject: LetterTo Parsi Irani Zarthoshtis for BPP Elections
*****Please forward to people you may know especially in Mumbai*****
September 23, 2008
Fellow Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis
This is the fourth e-letter. I wish to summarize, especially for the
Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis in Mumbai who will be voting in the Bombay
Parsee Punchayet (BPP) Elections.
Some key facts remain:
1. Any proposed changes to the Dokhma system may invoke the
involvement of the government. That could potentially lead to loss of
the land presently managed under trust by the BPP. This Heritage needs
to be preserved.
2. If the Parsi/Irani identity is disconnected from the
Zoroastrian religion, among other unfavourable repercussions, it could
also lead to the potential exploitation of housing and other
privileges that have been allocated for the special use by Parsi/Irani
The BPP requires some honest, dedicated people in the Trusteeship positions.
By one of their own founder's admission, NONE of the AFP "Dream-7" had
the slightest aspiration or ambition to become a trustee. WHY then,
this sudden change of heart?
Although their resumes may be quite impressive, and many of their
names may be linked to well-known Parsi Zoroastrians of the glorious
past, can we REALLY TRUST and rely on any of these AFP-7 individuals,
to truly and diligently work for the Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis?
The only team that will make the time, has the experience, a proven
track record, and genuine dedication to serve the community, AND is
committed to strengthen and preserve our environmentally sound and
doctrinally correct Dokhmenashini system, as well as preserve the
Parsi/Irani Zarthoshti identity and heritage, IS the WAPIZ Team.
Are changes necessary? Most certainly! It is IMPORTANT however, to
seek the right kind of changes. By casting your vote for the WAPIZ
Team, you can help to end an era of past nepotism and mis-management
in the BPP, and effect GOOD CHANGE through the responsible and
efficient management of the apex body of our community, by a new team
of BPP Trustees.
Please make your VOTE count – Vote for the WAPIZ Team.
Thank-you for your time and attention.
