In Pakistan, there is a Nizari Ismaili dissident named Nasiruddin Hunzai (a.k.a. Nasir al-Din Hunzai). Official websites: http://monoreality.org/ http://hubeali1.wordpress.com/ http://www.burushaskiresearchacademy.org http://hub-e-ali.blogspot.ca/ His work can also be found on some Nizari Ismaili websites, for example: http://ismailimail.w...asir-i-khusraw/ Here is his official biography: Some pictures of Nasiruddin Hunzai's operations can be seen here and here. Here are some pics of him operating, for example: By ruwayd at 2012-07-14 By ruwayd at 2012-07-14 By ruwayd at 2012-07-14 By ruwayd at 2012-07-14 By ruwayd at 2012-07-14 Nasiruddin Hunzai is at least somewhat of a dissident in the Nizari Ismaili community, apparently. Many Nizari Ismailis regard him as heretical. However, he has not been publicly refuted by any Nizari Ismailis to my knowledge, and many Nizari Ismailis still think highly of him. Also, Nasiruddin Hunzai also still very much considers himself a Nizari Ismaili and a devout follower of Nizari Ismailism. Additionally, his many books and articles are somewhat widely read within the Nizari Ismaili community to this very day, as well as the books and articles of his supposed successor, Faquir Muhammad Hunzai. For instance, one can search online and find many works by Nasiruddin Hunzai and Faquir Muhammad Hunzai, especially on Nizari Ismaili websites. Here is what one Nizari Ismaili wrote about Nasiruddin Hunzai: On the other hand, here is what another Nizari Ismaili wrote about Nasiruddin Hunzai: Also, here is a short biography of Nasiruddin Hunzai's supposed successor, Faquir Muhammad Hunzai, who is currently working at the Aga Khan owned "Institute of Ismaili Studies" in London, England: Uploaded with ImageShack.us
The Aga Khans have extensively intermarried into people's with European ancestry. Their founders were descended from Sayyids, the Qajar dynasty in Iran, they have Iranian, and South Asian ancestry as well.
Not the current Nizari Ismaili Imam, who is Aga Khan IV and the 49th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis. But, his predecessor, Aga Khan III, 48th Imam of the Nizari Ismailis, said the following about the Twelver Shia back in 1899 in a Farman made to the Zanzibar jamat of Nizari Ismailis (the equivalent of a kutbah for us regular Muslims - although for Nizari Ismailis, Farmans are considered to be the tasfir of the Qur'an): "Within ten, twenty or thirty years, the Ithna'ashri religion will be worn out. After 100 years the Ithna'ashri religion will not exist at all. It will not exist in Iran either because that religion's base is not on Aq'l (the power of reasoning). Our religion's base is on Aq'l." (From Translation of Book of Farmans in Gujarati) You can see several Nizari Ismailis discussing this farman here: http://www.ismaili.n...iewtopic&t=7382 It was a real prediction. It has proven wrong.
Why Calling Ismaili's Non-muslims Is A Great Sin? This post is addressed to the Ithnashari young and old people in this forum. In this last month of Ramadan, the Insults to the Imam-e-Zamana reached fever pitch by the young ignorant Ithnashari and their poorly educated religious scholars, whose knowledge and research, in the exegesis of the Holy Quran, the Hadith, history, archeology and other sciences needed to establish the truth is Poor and Shoddy. They have neither took up any great intellectual challenge and solved any mystery. Thus, for comparison, I pick a Sunni scholar who has made a name in recent times. This scholar's name is Sheikh Imran Hosein. Below are the two links to the same video, one with Bangla subtitles (as it is also my native language) and the other has the biography of the Sheikh at the end which is very important. His family moved to Trinidad as an "indentured" servants. I am sure none of your Ayatollahs from Iran or India ever went thru such harsh life to cook their personality. 2012 Imran Hosein - Sufi, Salafi and the End of Times - YouTube It is also true that your Ayatollah Khamenei, Ayatollah Sistani, do NOT reach the scholarly level of the Sheikh Imran Hosein. He has written perhaps as many if not more books and treatises than your Ayatollah Khomeini (ra). In particular, he has now written on the TIMELY and RELEVANT topic of the end times. However, here my purpose is different. This video of his talks about the issue, whether, Ismailis are muslim or not. Ismaili Tariqah is a Sufi Tariqah, with only one difference, the Sufi master is also the Imam-e-Zamana, from the first Imam Ali or Mawlana Ali (Salawat). The Jamat Khana is like a Sufi Khanaqah. It has no music or dancing in the Jamat Khana. There was a time, there was such persecution of the Ismailis after than fall of Alamut by mean spirited and chandah-collecting ithnashari clergy, that a clean separation was made and sharia was totally abandoned. That is what saved the Ismailis from the ithnashari clergy. In any country, where civil laws of harassment and stalking were operational, it would be fairly easy to stop the harassment via a civil harassment restraining order against the clergy. But unfortunately, this did not work in Iran. The Ismaili practices in the Jamat Khana are PRIVATE practices as in the Khanaqah. There are many sufi Ithnashari tariqah where men and women sit, women without any hijab, and they sing and dance. These are bonafide persian men and women. They dont believe in sharia in the sense that they believe it but have reached tariqah and dont practice it. This is because they already practice the ADAAB which means respect legal and civil rights or others. Sharia is nothing but codification of the civil and criminal laws. The wahhabis call the Prophet the law-giver. As a result, the Ismaili, Nizari, Agakhani practices are private and not the business of anyone other than the member of this sufi tariqah. Next, it is true that some of the members of the Tariqah, specifically the Khoja who speak Gujjarati have posted the videos of the gatherings on the internet. These are NOT the videos of the religious congregation but rather the SOCIAL functions. I can show you many videos or photos of Ithanshari women of Iranian without hijab. I can show you videos of the Pakistani women anchors without hijab and new and new daily makeup and clothes in that poor country. Benazir Bhutto, her Iranian mother Nusrat Bhutto never wore HIJAB. I am for hijab but that is not the reason for calling the Ismailis non-muslims. In Lebanon, the shia live all the time with sunni and christian and druze women who wear western clothing. In "the muslim village" that the Sunni Sheikh Imran Hosein describes, you cannot stop the Ismailis from their Jamat Khana practices, or you will be thrown out faster than federal express. Yes, you can keep your arms on the side, or fold them on your chest or above the belly, any way, but you cannot call each other non-muslims. I urge you to listen to Sheikh Imran Hosein and bring ONE single AYATOLLAH of yours who has written any treatises on this important subject of Akhir-u-Zaman. I know that he has criticized our Imam and called him a stooge of the west. But he forgot that the previous Imam, who worked so much more to build a relationship between Islam and the West was the one who worked for the building of Aligarh university and Allameh Iqbal Lahouri himself came out and muslims separated the engine of the railway and dragged his rail-car personally in honor of his services for the muslims of India. Infact, my Bangladesh would not have separated from the West Pakistan, had the muslims of Pakistan listened to him and adopted Arabic as their first national language. This itself is a miracle that your pakistani elite could not see or none of your scholars from the sunni or shia could reach that stage of foresight. He says in his speech clearly, that he will become UNPOPULAR, but none of your Ayatollah could reach that level of insight or foresight. In addition, only one sunni scholar has admitted in the retrospect and called him the grandfather of pakistan and that is Dr Israr Ahmad whose speech video is on the internet and I saw it once on this forum. Can someone bring it out than trying to hide it that post? The gujarati nizari khojas are responsible for this issue as they are putting the videos that are supposed to private. In addition, Imam-e-Zamana himself brought a case against several of his gujarati khojas in Canada for publishing his private firmans etc. If there are things that are holding us back from progress, it is the gujju khojas who are not obeying the firmans of the Hazar Imam. The Holy Prophet could not be held responsible for the disobedience in later times of Talha and Zubayr and those who faught among themselves. I urge you to listen to this scholar, Sheikh Imran Hosein and his lecture on the resolution between Salaf and the Sufi and TRANSER and APPLY that to the way to resolution between Shia Imami Ismaili Nizari (who originated Risail Ikhwan As-Safa) and Shia Ithnashari. Shariat, Tariqat, Haqiqat, Ma'arifat. Ithanshari use the term IRFAN. Sheikh Imran Hosein uses the term IHSAN.
