East Golestan Medical Council Supports the Perverse Baha’i sect + Document
Following the death of a Baha’i physician in Minudasht, the East Golestan Medical Council, in a thoughtful move, issued a message of condolence for the death of this physician.
According to Ferghe News, a few days ago, Jamshid Khosh-Aien, a Baha’i physician who lived in Minudasht, passed away.
Following this incident, the Medical Council of the eastern province, consisting of the cities of Minudasht, Kalaleh, Maraveh Tappeh and Galikesh, issued a statement of condolence for the death of this Baha’i physician.
This is in a situation where the perverse Baha’i sect has no place in the law of our country and issuing such messages can be a dangerous platform for further introduction and placement of this perverse sect in the province.
What message does the issuance of such an official communication by a government agency convey to the minds of the audience and the public? Whether such acts are unintentional or knowingly committed, in both cases, the authorities must be on the alert.
