The Scientific Conference of Meraj Institute
A Brief Report of the Scientific Conference on “The Baha’i Quest for Legitimacy from the Shia Clergy”.
Hojatoleslam Faghihi emphasized that the enemy attempts to harm Islam, Shias and the Islamic Republic by legitimizing the perverse Baha’i sect, so that it may achieve its ominous goals.
The Baha’i sect is completely based on propaganda; it has tried to create a place for itself by influencing the important international centres, such as the United Nations.
In order to achieve recognition, legitimization and survival in Iran, Baha’ism requires exploiting and misusing the words of some the Shiite clerics.
Due to lack of knowledge or lack of a sense of danger [from Baha’is], some, with their own words and fatwas, have willingly or unwillingly helped this perverse sect to achieve this goal.
The solution to fighting against Baha’is was presented in this meeting: recognizing the way and method of propagation of the Baha’is, and introducing the true nature of Baha’is.
