Falsafi’s sermons and occupation of the National Baha’i Centre

On Saturday, the military forces occupied the National Baha’i Centre.

In some circles, the immediate reaction by the military, which happened right after the high profile anti-Baha’i sermons by Falsafi, can indicate a behind-the-scene agreement in order to justify the military’s confiscation of the Baha’i Centre; however, reliable sources completely deny this allegation.
