Toudeh’is in Baha’i Clothing

Our reporter reports that before the recent legal campaign of the country against the Baha’is, the Toudeh’is [Iran’s left-inclined political party] had chosen a new way to arrange their meetings.

In this way, whenever they met to discuss the political and institutional issues [of the party], each one of them had a book of prayer or Baha’i songs in their possession, which they would open and place in front of them. If an officer entered, they would start chanting [reading] the prayers or Baha’i songs with a special melody.

Fortunately, the alert police force authorities and the military commanders noticed this trick and now Toudeh’is are thinking about other satanic ways for holding their meetings.
