The social, economic, political exploitation being carried out in the name of religion by society conscious people since the 70s. A movement was started against the Mewar soil from Udaipur. The aim of this movement was not to change the fundamental religious principles, but to liberate the common people of the community from the economic, social and political atrocities and exploitations that are taking place in the name of religion. Seeking account of the wealth (sabil, fitra, zakat) collected in the name of religion, getting rid of the restriction of raza (permission) before every work by Syedna Saheb and getting rid of the unnecessary restrictions was also a major demand of this movement. Our above justified demand was the office of Syedna Saheb known as "Kothar", Kothar declared anti-religion and declared social boycott with the reformists.
Social boycott is a cruel weapon for a Bohra member, As a result of which that person is not included in any event of the society. The relation of the bread daughter with the excluded person is also not maintained, even no one can talk to her. A socially excluded person cannot visit any mosque, dargah and religious place. He is not even given burial in a cemetery after death. Due to this cruelty, separation took place between father-son, mother-daughter, and brother-in-law. All this inhuman and undemocratic tragedy has to be suffered by the reformists. 70 years after the independence of the country, even today in this technological and scientific era, it is cursed to enjoy this medieval dictatorship.
The Bohra reformist movement is continuously trying to break this vicious cycle, gaining democratic and human rights in the last 50 years. While the fundamentalists are making every effort to crush this movement. Although such reformist movements have taken place several times from the end of the 19th century to the 1970s, but have failed each time. But since 1970, the Bohra Youth Movement started from Udaipur became a widespread movement and continues to this day.
