'Vora' is a Hindu and Rajput name. It is not a Muslim name. 'Vora' comes from the Sanskrit Vyawahar which means business. The word 'Vora' is also related to Varavana which is to offer food etc. to pilgrims, sadhus and sadhvis. The Muslim term,'Bohra' is a corruption of this name as many were converted, due to jiziya, etc. The Bohra community speaks Gujarati, has many Hindu last names like Premji and is closely related to Hindus even though they now follow Islam.
