The Baha’is Transferred Their Bank Deposits From Melli Bank to the Russian Bank

Special news indicates that, after the recent incident, a number of wealthy Baha’is have withdrawn their cash from the banks and transferred it to other banks. So far, it is not clear to which bank it was transferred once the stock was withdrawn from the Melli Bank. But last week it was divulged that most of the Baha’is had transferred their deposits to the Russian bank. This has resulted in increasing hatred and disgust towards the Baha’is from the national groupings.
