Where is the Hangout of the Baha’i and Wahhabi Groups?

This problem is so worrying that the Friday prayer leader of Jiroft recently warned that, due to cultural poverty in the south of Kerman Province, the perverse Baha’i and Wahhabi sects are active in this area, and they should be prevented from [dealing with this situation] by providing cultural work.

According to Shia Online , quoted by ISNA, in the Kavir region, one of the most important problems is [the] lack of cultural facilities and general poverty; young people turn to drugs and unhealthy entertainment and turn to some heretical sects, and this causes the spread of Wahhabism and Baha’i activities in the south of the Province of Kerman.

...He described the organized invasion of the perverse Baha’i and Wahhabi sects as an important threat to the south of the province: “With the money of some Arab sheikhs and the exploitation of the economic poverty of the people, Wahhabi currents are publicly propagating and misleading the youth.”
