Fake Ayatollahs Should Be Put On Trial

Some in Finland have been justified in playing a role in [anti]-Islamic Zionism. For some people, I find the use of the word ‘repentance’ [not enough for their action], but I say that the script written in Finland is more for spies.

According to Adyan News, the head of Hezbollah’s northwestern coordination council criticized the opposition media for pretending that Baha’is are being oppressed. He said, “Baha’ism is not a religion, like Judaism, Christianity and Islam, but a deviant sect of Shiites whose mission is to destroy Islam by intensifying differences and introducing heresies, just as Wahhabism’s mission is to divide Shiites and Sunnis and destroy Islam.”

Hojatoleslam Rouhollah Bejani added, “Wahhabism proceeds in a manner of savagery and terror, and Baha’ism carries out its mission by pretending to be oppressed and [engaging in] widespread organized underground corruption.”

Criticizing the presence of Abdolhamid Masoumi-Tehrani among Baha’is and his unscientific and missionary-like interview with the U.S. state media (VOA), he said, “Some in Finland have been justified in playing a role in [anti]-Islamic Zionism. For some people, I find the use of the word ‘repentance’ [not enough for their action], but I say that the script written in Finland is more for spies.”

While condemning the prominent cleric, Bejani said, “As a demand of Hezbollah, a large part of the Islamic homeland, I call on the Special Clerical Court to investigate and deal with such people. I also ask Mr. Raisi to stop the production of overnight ayatollahs. Is not forging a title a crime? So how do some spies and traitors use forgery to advance the goals of the enemies?”

This cleric of Basij continued, “We have scholars in Qom who have worked day and night for decades and are really ayatollahs. But some immediately forge the title of ayatollah overnight. “We expect Hezbollah in Tehran to file a complaint against Masoumi and invite the Special Clerical Court to deal with him and put him on trial.”
