India’s Media Exposed to Danger of Baha’ism

“…Given the great power of the media in shaping public perceptions and discourses, the Baha’i community of India and the IIMC felt that there was a great need to have a conversation with media professionals about the way they cover religion.” These are the words of Mrs. Rajkhowa, director of the Baha’i Office of Public Affairs of India, in a meeting with the prominent media figures of this country. This shows that in a new wave of propaganda, the Baha’is are targeting the media and are trying to find a way for audio-visual coverage of the Baha’i institutions within the recommended framework of its organizations.

For this plan, the Indian Institute of Mass Communication and the Office of Public Affairs of the Baha’is of India jointly hosted the gathering called “Covering Religion with Sensitivity and Understanding in an Interdependent World,” in New Delhi.

Confusion and the large population of India have been preparing this country, for a long time, for the activities and nurturing of all kinds of different sects.

The Baha’i sect’s organization has also caught a lot of fish from this muddy water; in its most recent attempt, it has been preparing adequate grounds and settings for entering the media.

Baha’ism has announced that the discussion in media will continue in a series of roundtable events throughout the coming year.
