The tug-of-war over the successor to Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, who passed away on Friday, has taken another twist.

Khuzaima Qutbuddin, who declared himself as the next spiritual head of the Dawoodi Bohra community, has been granted security of five constables and an officer following threats from unknown people.

The Vartak Nagar (Thane) police granted security to Qutbuddin, a resident of Thane, after he complained of threats via e-mail and text messages.

Confirming the same, Balasaheb Patil, deputy commissioner of police, Thane, said, “We have given him security as he told us that he had received intimidating mails and text messages.”

Succession war
Following the Syedna’s demise after a cardiac arrest, his second son Muffadal Bhaisaheb Saifuddin was considered the next head, as he had been anointed in 2011. But Qutbuddin posted on his website (http://fatemidawat.com) that he was the real successor and declared himself as the 53rd Dai-ul-Mutlaq. Following his claims, there were rumours that the community was planning on ex-communicating Qutbuddin but no one confirmed the news.

    Please leave this matter alone and not exploit this in the media. This is an internal matter so it's better if it's left to the community to deal with.

    I know the dawoodi bohra community very closely, they would never do such thing. This guy is telling lies just to gain sympathy.

    No matter involving public money and resources is a private community internal one, it's something everyone has a right to know and media is one such platform. Now bring the pop corn.
