A certain group of people in Saifee Mahal has had enmity for Syedna Qutbuddin for decades:
They have circulated false tasavvur/doctrines ke Mazoon zahir ma alag, batin (real) ma alag hoi. Cf. Taizoon bs’s “Zahir/Batin” website. Syedna Burhanuddin’s granddaughter asked him that this group is giving this tasavvur, is it correct? And Syedna Burhanuddin replied that it was wrong, em farmaayu “Bhai [Khuzaima bhaisaheb] ne mein yeh qaaim kidha chhe”
Influenced by this group, several of Syedna Burhanuddin’s shehzadas have done false arazes to Syedna Burhanuddin about Syedna Qutbuddin for years, especially, for example, about Africa episode in 1409.
The anti-Qutbuddin group has also carried out campaign among mumineen for years.Shz Mufaddal bhaisaheb has defamed Syedna Qutbuddin in direct conversations with mumineen, and has also instructed his Mufaddali group to defame Syedna Qutbuddin, saying: ‘maula’ na kaho, ‘TUS’ na likho, tool-ul-umr ni doa naa karo, photaa utaaro, Syedna Qutbuddin pichhaari namaaz na paro, ehne challenge karo, ehna paase naa jaawo.
Muqaddas Syedi Mukasirsaheb Saleh bhaisaheb yeh Syedna Burhanuddin ne araz kidhi keh several people namaaz nahi parta behind Syedna Qutbuddin; Syedna Burhanuddin sakhat khafa thaya ke kon aa saglu karaawe chhe.
Some aamils who were members of Mufaddali group (such as Zoher bs bin Shz Maryam bs) even dropped Syedna Qutbuddin name from misaaq text on Ghadeer immediately after Africa episode; Syedna Burhanuddin ne koi yeh tape araz kidhi; ehne bulaawi ne ghana sakhat khafa thayaa in public bethak, and farmaayu “aa ghalat tasavvur tamne kon-yeh aapi chhe!!”
“Maula”: Shz Mufaddal bhaisaheb has said to many people over the past couple of decades that “Maula” should not be used for Syedna Qutbuddin, it is only to be used for Dai-z-zamaan.
Shz Mufaddal bhaisaheb himself used to refer to Syedna Qutbuddin as Maula. After Syedna Burhanuddin’s first misaaq as Dai, Mufaddal Bhaisaheb Syedna Qutbuddin no haath pakri ne ghare laya ane Sakina baisaheba (wife of Syedna Qutbuddin) ne awaaz dai ne kahyu: “Kaki, Mazoon maula padhara!” Moreover, in a letter he wrote in his own hand to Syedna Qutbuddin, Shehzada Mufaddal bhaisaheb addressed him waramwaar as “Maula”, and to Syedna Burhanuddin and Syedna Qutbuddin together as “beve Maula”.
