Destruction of the Baha’i Network in Fars / Organizational Agents Were Arrested

The norm-breaking Baha’i network in Fars Province was identified and dismantled.

According to the provincial group the Young Journalists Club of Shiraz, a number of organizational members of the Baha’i sect, who, under the guidance of their officials abroad, on the pretext of celebrating the birthday of one of the leaders of the sect, were trying to organize their agents in different parts of Shiraz and hold meetings and private and unconventional gatherings during the last ten days of mourning of the month of Safar, were identified and arrested.

Also, a long time ago, agents of this network, after traveling abroad and planning extensively, intended to overshadow Arbaeen-e Hoseini’s walk, but after the elements involved in this matter were identified and arrested in time, they also failed in their project.
