Activities of Baha’is outside the Country

According to the news received from abroad, in the past week the Baha’is of Iran have increased their activities abroad, and by spending money, have succeeded in publishing stories against Iran in some publications.

The Baha’is of Iran have, at the moment, centred their activities in the Arab countries, and as has been heard, Baha’is have allocated extensive budgets for their propaganda.

Considering that this sect is not credible and it is known solely as a disruptive sect, their activities are meaningless, and the government must be careful that a disruptive sect does not succeed in spreading malicious, meaningless propaganda abroad.
