Baha’ism has become more active than ever

The representative of the supreme leader in East Azerbaijan said, “The heretical sects are active in Iran with the support of global imperialism, and the Baha’is have become more active than ever.”

Referring to the imperialist support for the heretical sect, he said, “The sect of Wahhabism and Baha’ism carry out many activities against the rules of the Quran and the Ahl al-Bayt [family of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad].

The Friday prayer leader of Tabriz, referring to the need to propagate Islamic and Shiite teachings in the world, added, “We should try to propagate Islam through strong preachers who are fluent in different languages, but of course measures are being taken through seminaries.”

He said, “Today, the Islamic Revolution is known around the world and has many supporters in different parts of the world and even in Europe, and if this propaganda and introduction of the Revolution is done correctly, we will see more people receptive and attracted [to Islam] than before.”...
