…14. Habibollah Azizi, son of Morteza, due to his [close] relationship with the small groups of Fadaian-e Khalq the Minority [Organization of Iranian People’s Fadaian] and the Monafeqin [reference to People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran], [is] distributing the publications and their manifesto, financially assisting the Baha’i propagation centres in the Zionist countries, [their] international activities, and the creation of Baha’i centres.

Also, Forouhar Mohammadi, son of Gholam-Reza, the retired gendarmerie colonel and the founder of the Papak Company, was accused of being a member of the Tudeh Party. Later on, he undertook his activities in favour of the ‘Jebhe Mellat [National Front] and afterwards inclined towards Baha’ism. He has also been accused of publishing and disseminating the Kasravi books, especially after the revolution, with the aim of harming the Islamic Revolution, spreading rumours and circulating lies, [and intending to discredit] the regime of the Islamic Republic. He was also accused of being the founder of Pak-Dinan [the contemporary political movement in Iran to create a pure Iranian identity] which was the creation of the annihilated Kasravi, and was condemned to death. The court’s verdict was carried out in his case.
