"Syedna's advocate argued that while it is open for Fakhruddin to file his own suit he cannot continue his father's suit which was filed for declaration of a personal status. Fakhruddin's advocates countered that the declaration sought was of a status conferred on Qutbuddin according to laws governing the community. Also, that Fakhruddin was appointed by his father and he is therefore entitled to continue his father's suit and to establish that not only was his father correctly appointed as 53rd Dai but he is correctly appointed as his successor."
