The Dawoodi Bohras in the UK are part of a global reform movement. We are here to challenge the authoritarian and un-Islamic system the current Bohra priesthood has put in place to control and fleece the Dawoodi Bohra community. Reformist Dawoodi Bohras demand accountability, transparency, local jamat democracy and an end to the misuse of raza (permission), misaq (oath of allegiance) and baraat (ex-communication).
The DBWS is a registered charity and was founded in 1976. Since that time we have sought to be transparent with all our affairs. All meetings are available for public record and all financial transaction are logged and submitted to the charity commission annually.
The DBWS arranges both religious and social events for the betterment of its members. We have a total open door policy to all our events. We welcome engagement from all communities and welcome questions as we try to integrate and be a part of our local communities.
Our organisation requires a membership fee that we use to fund local projects, organise events, help our members maintain faith and community centres and also help other charitable organisations through donations.
On this site you will find information about the activities of the Reformist Bohras in the UK and also the activities of the individual branches the make up the UK Reformist community as a whole.
