An open communication to Parsi Irani Zarthoshtis


Especially those residing in Mumbai and hopefully have registered to vote for the Bombay Parsee Punchyet (BPP) trusteeship elections.


Please do VOTE.


This is especially true for the Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis who identify themselves as Traditionalists, Orthodox or basically stand for preserving the traditions and practices which have been endowed upon our community, for over a millennium.


United we stand divided we fall.


There are wolves in sheep's clothing in this election, mainly candidates comprising of the Adult Franchise for Progress (AFP) panel; especially those who seek to take a soft line of appeasement, like Nadir Modi and Noshir Dadrawalla; there are some independents as well.


This is not the time for the true Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis, especially amongst the conservative ranks to be divided on any issues.  That is exactly what the reformists are counting on, divide and conquer.


There will be no Zarthoshti Religion left to speak off as we presently know it, if the AFP candidates get elected.


The truly committed to the religion candidates in this election (in alphabetical order) are Ms. Shirin Choksey, Yazdi Desai, Bomi Kavina and Khojeste P. Mistree, the Defender of Dokhmenishini for the last 10 years.


Vote for the WAPIZ Team of 4 candidates, fellow Parsi/Irani Zarthoshtis so that we can trust and preserve what you have as well as get change where it is most needed in the management of the BPP.  All 4 of these candidates are committed to management and educational changes for the betterment of the community.  All these candidates, with conviction, believe in fair Housing allotment, proposed subsidized medical privileges for seniors, religious education and above all strengthening the process of dokhmenishini by bringing back the vultures.  All these candidates have a track record for community service and they are persons of high intellect and integrity

This WAPIZ Team is endorsed by our community's most Learned Scholar High Priests of Mumbai Dastur (Dr.) Kaikhusroo M. JamaspAsa and Dastur (Dr.) Firoze M. Kotwal.


This is your Team of 4 who will make the Time, work with dedication and have a track record of community service over the years


VOTE FOR THE WAPIZ TEAM, and give them the chance and opportunity to guide the community to a new dawn, for a better tomorrow.
