(A Lawyer’s perspective)
I read with interest, the newspaper article in Hindustan Times where former Chief Justice of India, Justice Ahmadi states that he believes that Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s claim of 53 dai is principled. According to Mr. Ahmadi, he himself has examined some historical documents “in which historical facts about the community and the events since the nass (choosing the successor) conferred by Syedna Burhanuddin on Syedna Qutbuddin in 1965 have been recorded“.
Based on his examination he concluded that Khuzaima Qutbuddin’s stand of 53rd Dai is principled. Mr. Ahmadi while drawing his conclusion has overlooked some of the very basic principles of laws which I list below.
The analysis below is from logical and legal standpoint. Out of fairness, I find it right to state that I have not seen historical documents shared by Khuzaima Qutbuddin to Mr. Ahmadi.
