He will interview the elders in our community and obtain inputs from the viewers of the Documentary.
Hasnain bhai of Los Angeles, USA who is the Co-chair of the Khoja Heritage Project of the World Federation has travelled round the world for ten months and captured over 100 hours of footage from which this two hour segment has been produced.
We would encourage all our community members, including ladies, youths and students in these Jamaats to attend the screening of this important historical film, which has been produced for the first time in the history of the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri.
There will also be a screening of this Documentary in Madagascar and Reunion at earliest opportunity.
