Hojatoleslam Rouzbahani Mentioned:

[Islamic Republic of Iran] Broadcasting and Propagating a Masonic Baha’i Method

Seminary Group – in a note, the director of the Baha’ism group of the Office of Islamic Development of the Qom School of Theology asked the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting to do more research on the contents of its historical and classic documentary programmes.

According to IQNA, the text of Hojatoleslam Ali-Reza Rouzbahani’s note, entitled “[Islamic Republic of Iran] Broadcasting and Propagating a Masonic Baha’i Method”, which was provided to IQNA, is as follows:

In Mehr 1392 [September/October 2013], the large conference called “Cradle and Mother”, of this seemingly simple and people-oriented organization [NGO], was held in Farmanieh Hall. More than 300 kindergarten [teachers] and some of Tehran’s most famous psychologists had been invited. The director of the same NGO, having registered a company named “Educating The Unparalleled Jewel”, has received a licence to import Montessori products, books and educational aid materials, and obtained [permission] from foreign companies to establish and represent affiliated branches and offices.

The so-called peace-based and culture of peace curriculum is currently being implemented in Iran simultaneously with the occupied territories and other Muslim countries in the Middle East by the United Nations and other international organizations, with the help of a range of domestic NGOs. The ultimate goal of teaching these concepts to children is to discredit the “culture of resistance” and defeat the Islamic regime’s “No to Oppression and No to Oppressor” policy from within, in the face of the Western capitalist liberal system. In this way, the path of neo-colonialism will last longer in the world.
