For the attention of the followers of Mirza Khoda

More than two months have passed since the letter from Mr. Nakha’i, addressed to Seyyed Abbas Alavi, the famous teacher of the Baha’i sect, was published, and so far no response has been received from him regarding the formation of a formal and public debate session.

Of course, we knew from the beginning that we would not receive any response, because the Baha’i cause is based on cover-up and concealment. It is befitting that the people of Baha, the “searchers after truth”, investigate whether Alavi and other Baha’i teachers, knowing the invalidity of the cause, refrain from participating in official and public debates or [is it that] other reasons have caused them to refuse to answer?

We are waiting the investigation of the Baha’is and their response to this question.
