[Voice of America] [Persian] Counter-Cultural Policy; From False Mysticism to English Sects

VOA continued its series of anti-cultural and anti-religious programmes, re-promoting Baha’ism and [describing] the oppression of this English sect.

According to Religion News, following a series of VOA programmes to propagate deviant sects and false religions, the Wednesday night programme, “Ofogh”, was dedicated to the perverse Baha’i sect.

The network dedicated its one-hour programme to the Baha’is, who began the New Year by inviting Shahin Najafi, an apostate and insulting singer, and went on to introduce and propagate the deviant sect of Erfan-e-Halgheh and the Manichaean religion.

Of course, Siamak Dehghanpour, the host of this programme, is also one of the people who have very close relations with the Baha’is, and not only has he provided the VOA tribute to this perverse sect, but he has also appeared on various networks to promote this English sect.
