Hope Better Sense Prevails with the BPP sign now


We all know about the landmark judgment delivered by the Bombay High Court on 11th March 2011, wherein the ban imposed by the BPP on the two priests Ervad Khushru Madon & Framroze Mirza was quashed & struck down.
The court judgment clearly states:
1. There is nothing in the Trust conditions which gives right to BPP to meddle in religious matters
2. An Ordained Priest cannot be de-frocked.

Now BPP has decided to appeal & take the matter to the Supreme Court.

What is BPP trying to achieve and at what cost & purpose? To begin with the ban itself was a bad idea & was certainly not prudent on the part of BPP to issue such a Fatwa of banning the two priests. It smacked of vindictiveness & a political move for political gains.

What has been the total expense the BPP has incurred from the community funds on trying to defend their ridiculous ban in the court till date? This is a highly valid question every member of the community, as a beneficiary, should ask & have a right to know.

As reported in various media, the BPP have squandered Rs. 75 lakhs (7.5 million) till date and if they file an appeal in Supreme Court the expenses would be further more than 1 Crore (10 million) on the community coffers. What is BPP trying to achieve and at what cost & purpose?

Now that the High Court has delivered the verdict, shouldnt the BPP treat it as a settled matter and concentrate on more real and serious issues? Can BPP not use funds for constructive manner like:
1. Buy seats in Medical, Engineering, Law, Commerce and other colleges (those giving courses in professional fields), so that our students can get into these colleges. Any expense spent on such a project will bring many fold results. The prosperity of the community will definitely go up.
2. Use funds to see that every student of the community can get higher education of his / her choice.
3. Use funds to subsidize house rents of the needy community members.
4. Use funds to finance our young entrepreneurs-- Some of it can be as loans or on returnable basis.

Are these not better ways to use the funds instead of wasting financial resources of the community on a non-issue ?

The trustees of the BPP should realize that they are not the owners of the Trust but are the custodians of the Funds & Properties of the Trust. Should they be allowed to squander & waste any financial amount they wish to from the Trusts fund to further their own political agenda?

This is a petition to show our dissent with the BPP against wasting & squandering the community funds and also an earnest appeal to them to accept the High Court verdict & not waste any further resources of the Trust funds by approaching the Supreme Court over a non-issue.

If you are in agreement, please sign your name in the Petition below & also forward it to as many members of the community as possible. We will be forwarding this to the BPP so that better sense prevails. Join us, and let us make ourselves heard.

    The ban was ridiculous in the first place. Appealing this even further shows how ridiculous and obselete the BPP has become to Parsis everywhere. Shame.

    While the intention is honourable, I am not optimistic about the end result. The traditionalist section of Parsi society is large enough to ensure the BPP Trustees win the next election - and that is what matters to them.

    I agree wholeheartedly. It is time this orthodox absurdity is stopped as already we are the size of a tribe & even that will dissappear if these bigotted views are allowed to have their way.
