The strange connection between Nasrin Sotoudeh and the perverse Baha’i sect!
Will Nasrin Sotoudeh convert to the perverse Baha’i sect?
According to the political service of Asr-e Emrooz, there is nothing left but for Nasrin Sotoudeh to change her official religion into a handmade Zionist sect! According to this report, we have spoken many times before about Sotoudeh’s positions in support of this ridiculous and perverse faith, but this connection is more than political support and cooperation.
According to our correspondent, the latest indication of this deep connection was the visit of Farid Rouhani, the media activist of the perverse Baha’i sect, with a number of family members of this sect’s leaders, who met and thanked Nasrin Sotoudeh and Reza Khandan.
It is noteworthy that Sotoudeh, after the sedition and arrest of the counter-revolutionary elements, those associated with the terrorist group of Monafeghin, and terrorists such as Arash Rahmanipour (member of the Tondar terrorist group) and Zahra Bahrami (member of the Tondar terrorist group) in this battle, [acting] quickly, [under the] directions of Shirin Ebadi from abroad, represented these terrorists and counter-revolutionaries, who endangered the security of the people. And for this good service, she received the Sakharov Prize [for Freedom of Thought] and presented it to the perverse Baha’i sect?!
