Western Countries are frightened by the Hidden Imam’s Appearance.

[In public remarks, Hojjatol-Islam Nasiri (Director of the Office of Islamic Propagation in Hajiabad)]… declared that several groups – among them Wahhabis, Baha’is, and other deviant sects – have plans to belittle the appearance of the Hidden Imam:

“Various groups are adverse to the Divine belief and the Divine promise. Both clandestinely and openly, they are executing their plans to obliterate this weighty matter from the minds of our youth and adults. They are daubing their shameful smears on the people and in particular the youth, in order to cause the latter to swerve from the truth.”
