Exclusive to Javan Online: “Influencing Social Networks and Media, Baha’is’ New Instructions”
The centre of the perverse Baha’i sect in Israel, in continuation of its new instructions to the Baha’is of Iran, has outlined their lines of activity.
According to Javan Online, in response to some questions from Baha’is, the Secretariat of the House of Justice issued another part of its instructions to the Baha’i group in Iran, and contrary to the sect’s claim that its followers were not politically active, has [urged] its supporters to enter this area, which they called “modern needs”.
The guideline, which explicitly addresses the continued activities of the Baha’is, focuses on the activities of this perverse sect in three specific areas—political, social, and economic: the growth of Baha’ism requires greater participation in social affairs; start doing activities on a regular basis with varying degrees of complexity in economic and social affairs.
It is noteworthy that this new guideline implicitly emphasizes the targeting of social networks imperceptibly and insists on the formulation and implementation of policies related to some social issues.
In this instruction, addressing “protection of women’s rights”, “generalization of effective education to all children”, “protection of the environment”, etc., are considered necessary in line with the goals of the Baha’i administration, and participating in these areas in a professional and specialized manner has been emphasized.
The Baha’i International Centre [sic] continues to emphasize the influence and contact with some media outlets. While [encouraging] the presence of its followers in riots and strikes, it also exposes the role of Baha’is in recent events, where it explicitly states that [the Baha’is should] use their various personal initiatives during this period to participate in the various modern arenas created.
In an interview with Javan Online, an informed source described the intensification of the Baha’is’ political, social and economic activities, stating that the perverse sect, with a plan to re-use personal initiatives, made a secret recommendation to continue the riots and experiences such as burning mosques and setting fire to the Qur’an.
