A Brief History of Khoja Community

A history of when Aga Khan I came to India and ordered the Khoja community to either pay up his version of charity called “Dasond” directly to him or leave the community. This is when Habib Ibrahim and eleven of his brothers (collectively known as “Barbhai” or “Bara Bhai” or “Twelve Brothers”) stood up against Aga Khan’s oppression and fought it out in a Bombay court against the Aga Khan.

What then came into existence was the “Khoja Sunnat Jamat“. This documentary features a rare interview of popular radio host, Ameen Sayani whose great-grandfather Rahmatullah Sayani was one of the founders of the Sunni Muslim Khoja Jamat.
