(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) Thousands of members of the Dawoodi Bohra Muslim community from around the world gathered at Saifee Masjid in Bhendi Bazaar in south Mumbai on Wednesday on the eve of the 103rd birth anniversary of their late leader, Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin

They converged on the narrow streets of the congested locality to catch a glimpse of his successor and son, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, who also led the evening prayers. A large number of Dawoodi Bohra Muslims live in Bhendi Bazaar, which is also undergoing a major transformation.


Syedna Mufaddal told community members that the rehabilitation part of the Bhendi Bazaar redevelopment project would be completed and the families resettled in about five yea. A few years ago, when the late Syedna visited one of the old buildings in Bhendi Bazaar, he was disheartened to see people living in cramped tenements.


He initiated the Saifee Burhani Upliftment Project to transform the neighbourhood into a well-planned residential locality. It is today one of the largest cluster redevelopment projects in India. Spread across 16.5 acres in one of Mumbai’s most congested localities it aims to rehabilitate 3,200 families and 1,250 commercial shops in 17 new high-rise towers, after razing 250 old and dilapidated buildings.
