Defending the Baha’i Sect, In a Letter From Masoumi Tehrani to Ayatollah Mohaghegh-Damad!
In a letter to Ayatollah Mohaghegh-Damad, Masoumi Tehrani called for the recognition of Baha’ism. In response, we say, the atheistic claims of the Baha’i leaders and the colonial and influential nature of the Baha’i organization have led Islamic scholars to deny it. In addition, even the so-called Baha’i Prophet has forbidden the normalization of his followers’ relations with followers of other religions.
Adyannet – In a letter posted on Baha’i social media, Abdol-Hamid Masoumi Tehrani (titled ayatollah and stooge of the Zionist Baha’is) called on Ayatollah Mohaghegh-Damad to recognize the perverse Baha’i sect in Iran. In response to Masoumi Tehrani’s remarks, we must point out two important points.
First, the atheistic claims and rhetoric of the Baha’i leaders, as well as the colonial-affiliated and influential nature of the Baha’i sect’s organization, have led all Islamic scholars to refuse its official recognition. Secondly, how does Masoumi Tehrani call for the recognition of Baha’ism, while the so-called Prophet of the Baha’i sect has forbidden the normalization of his followers’ relationship with followers of other religions. With all these, what is the logic of Masoumi Tehrani in recognizing this perverse and misguided colonialist sect?!
