Roadmap for our religion - as per the intentions of the destructive reformists

We wish and pray that all make the right decision in the BPP elections, and
our religion will definitely be the beneficiary. Our religion is too ancient,
too precious, and all of us do not like to see our fire temples being thrown
open to all and sundry, our dakhmas being closed down, and the recently
falsely converted people from abroad control our religion in India. This is
the roadmap if WAPIZ is not supported at this critical juncture.

There is a precedent in history - the teachings of Christ were originally only for the Jews, Paul of Tarsus threw the gates open to gentiles in Greece, and after the Roman massacre of Jerusalem, the new converts from abroad became the majority of the followers of Christ, and they created a new religion, divorcing themselves from the laws of the Jews. They then went on to convert the whole world, and the adherents, diverting from the teachings of Christ,  destroyed a lot of other people and cultures in the process. Religious wars are seen even today between the people who believe in conversion.

This is what the reformists hope will become to our ancient religion.
This is why these people want our ancient race to die out (God forbid).
That is why the outsiders like ali are always happy when they see
Traditionals not marrying.

The designs of these liberals will never be allowed by the Holy Fravashis and
the Yazatas who have never blessed such destructive intents.
Only good intenetions will be blessed by the Fravashis, and
Wapiz has the best intentions for our religion. The Holy Fravashis
and the Yazatas will bless Wapiz, the preservers of our religion,
with success. Amin, Amin, Amin,

The very act of reform is bad if it is destroying our ancient
community = which intermarriage and conversion definitely will.

The Orthodox may be rough and tough in their talk and behaviour, like
uncut diamonds, but their hearts are good, they are the preservers
of our ancient religion. The Fravashis of our forefathers will always
bless them.

Reformists may be refined, posh and highly-educated, they may be rich
and hobnobbing with the most powerful in society and have fantastic
business networks, they may be driving around in
expensive cars and dining in 5-star hotels and living in bungalows or
penthouses, in short their lifestyles may be impressive and
eye-catching, BUT their intentions are destructive
so far as our ancient religion goes. So what is the use of all the
former, if there is no intention to preserve DHARMA - which
is the sacred duty of we Aryans?

Their destructive intentions will not be blessed by the Holy Fravashis
- our Yashts mention this repeatedly that destructive intentions
will not be blessed by the Yazatas and Fravashis.

Dadar Ahura Mazda is the Creator, DADARI. The evil one is the
destroyer - marochinidari.

This is from the Ardibehest Yasht Nirang.

An apple, highly polished, may not be ideal in the core. You cannot make out from the external appearance or behaviour of a person as to who or what he or she really is. Look at the "intentions" of the person - whether he or she wants to "preserve" or "destroy", and you will realize which side of the fight between good and evil the person is on.

We should use this as our "touchstone" - then we will know if we are
doing the right thing, or the wrong thing.

LetterTo Parsi Irani Zarthoshtis for BPP Elections

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.

Yours truly,

Hushtasp R. Bhumgara C.E.T.
