Subject: TheParseeVoice Fwd: Petition against Utsav in Udvada

Dear Readers,

​You are most probably aware of the recent furore raised by community members against the unfortunate goings-on during the Iranshah Udvada Utsav. All the Vada Dasturjis too​ have protested against what happened there. Their letter was published in Jame Jamshed Weekly. 

WAPIZ has also raised its voice against whatever wrong happened at the Utsav (see attached press cutting). The only motivating force behind these protests is preservation of the sanctity of Holy Iranshah Padshah. The Utsav organisers have yet to see light!

Consequently, it was decided to petition the Prime Minister of India to instruct that henceforth, the Utsav be held at a location other than Udvada. 

I thank all those who have supported the move of the traditional section of the society.
 For those who have missed
​my earlier
, kindly act immediately by voting in favour of the petition to the Prime Minister of India. 

We oppose
​all ​
those actions which defile and denigrate the sanctity of our Holy Iranshah. He is our biggest benefactor for the last
​over ​
1300 years and it is our bounden duty to protect HIM from harm.

We support the Government's efforts to improve infrastructure in Udvada. We are also not against attempts to showcase the community's track record of progress and harmony in India in the last millennium. However, holding of this Utsav in Udvada is damaging the sanctity of Holy Iranshah! Hence the request to the Prime Minister to instruct the organisers to hold future Utsavs at a location OTHER THAN UDVADA and thus prevent further spiritual damage to our holy entity, Iranshah!

An online version of the petition can be accessed via the following link:
