According to Adyan News, Mohammad Nourizad, a counter-revolutionary agent, [posted] on his Facebook page [that] following a call on 29 Ordibehehst 1393 [19 May 2014], he travelled to Shiraz and met with a limited number of Baha’i elements and members of the Gonabadi Sufi sect in Hafezieh (Tomb of Hafez). He has raised many issues against the officials and policies of the system and in line with the enemies of the system.

Following the norm-breaking actions, he was transferred to the airport and sent to Tehran that evening.

Mohammad Nourizad returned to Shiraz on 30 Ordibehehst 1393 [20 May 2014] and was present at the house of a Baha’i and also a member of the Gonabadi sect. And at noon on the same day in Qoba Mosque, among those present, he raised issues against the system.

Considering that Nourizad was the cause of the invitation to the counter-revolutionary rally without obtaining a permit, he was sent to the airport again and transferred to Tehran in the evening of the same day.

According to the reporter of Shoma News, during the past one or two days, some sites affiliated with the Baha’i sect and foreign media, including the BBC, Radio Farda, VOA, and Radio Zamaneh, etc., have received extensive news coverage in support of Mohammad Nourizad; [they] made him look oppressed and stated that he had been arrested.
