Statement from Anjuman-e-Najmi Detroit

At no time has the Anjuman-e-Najmi, Detroit mosque paid for any religious medical procedure whatsoever.

Any comments made by anyone to that effect are false.

These comments are made without factual evidence to back it up and are intended to intently misstate, overstate and inflame an already difficult situation.

We have informed the Guardian ad Litem, via legal counsel, of her factual misstatements and asked her for a correction. That letter is included.

Anjuman-e-Najmi, Detroit is a non-profit Corporation administering and managing the affairs of the Dawoodi Bohra congregation of Detroit. Dawoodi Bohras have made their homes in the United States of America since 1950’s and are a well-integrated, successful community numbering approximately 12,000. We take our religion seriously but our culture is modern and forward-looking. We are proud that women from our community have high levels of educational attainment and enjoy successful, professional careers.
