Baha’i Gathering in the Chitgar Forest Park

“A large number of Baha’is visited the Chitgar Forest Park last night,” the Baztab correspondent reported. According to the report, they attended this pre-planned gathering in parts of the Chitgar Forest Park in the west of Tehran.

In recent years, Baha’i movements in Iran have expanded, and especially in the past year, supporters of the sect have widely circulated letters to the president in a number of Iranian cities, calling for the sect to be recognized.

The leaders of the Baha’i [sect] which is considered by some to be a political faith, are now spreading propaganda around the world to increase their followers.
