The American “Time” article on the action of Iran with regard to the Baha’is in Tehran has received close attention.

Yesterday, Time Magazine published an article about the Bab and Baha, and the Iranian government’s actions against the Baha’is, which has received considerable attention in various circles in Tehran.

Interestingly, this article was published in agreement with the Baha’i taste, and as a result of it, no attempt has been made by any of the journals to translate it.

In the Time article, it is mentioned that “Baha” is the same person as the Promised One “Mahdi” (PBUH) for Whom Iranians are waiting!

However, the Shiites have not accepted this view and are fighting with the followers of Baha; the disagreement with the actions taken against the Baha’is by the government is being debated.
