The letter stated that the members of the Community will take all necessary steps to ensure that no untoward happening takes place during the protest, which will affect the law and order situation. Every possible assistances will also be accorded to the administration and Police to stop any miscreant induced activity during the protest in the location of the protest.

The representatives of the community also requested the Collector that the administration take the necessary steps to facilitate re-opening of the gates of the Dargah, as it is situated in the hub of Bohrawadi and passage as well as visits by the patrons of the Dawoodi Bohra members to the Dargah is very frequent.
