Dawoodi Bohras celebrate founder's 100th birthday

Speaking on the occasion former minister R Roshan Baig appealed to the Bohra community to set up a super speciality hospital in Bangalore on the lines of their hospital in Mumbai to provide treatment at cheaper price. “We all will make efforts cutting across party lines to identify sufficient land for the project,” he said.

Congress leaders C K Jaffer Sharief and H K Patil recalled the services of the Syedna for the poor and downtrodden in general and uplift of Muslim community in particular.

‘Great entrepreneurs’

Police Commissioner Shankar Bidari said the Dawoodi Bohras didn’t depend on government jobs and were very enterprising.

Infosys Director Mohandas Pai said the message of peace and brotherhood of the Syedna would surely ensure better future for the country.

Earlier, a colourful procession was taken out from Town Hall to Corporation Circle, with the people of the community dressed in traditional attire.
