Confiscation of Naw-Ruz by Baha’ism

If you search the internet, for the phrase “Naw-Ruz” in English, you will realize that the Baha’i organization, in order to introduce itself to the world, since it has no history or background, has confiscated in its own name the festival of Naw-Ruz, [which belongs] to the land of ancient Iran. All this is against the absurd claim of the Baha’i sect to sincerity and trust in the service of their homeland.

Adyannet – If you search the internet for the phrase Naw-Ruz in English, you will realize that the Baha’i organization, in order to introduce itself to the world, since it has no history or background, has confiscated in its own name the festival of Naw-Ruz, [which belongs] to the land of ancient Iran.

In other words, any researcher and English speaker who wants to know about Naw-Ruz will automatically consider it a Baha’i celebration, and instead of getting acquainted with the culture and customs of our country, he will be preached to about Baha’ism. In fact, this action of the Baha’i sect’s organization is cultural theft, and historical confiscation (such as changing the name of the Persian Gulf to the Arabian Gulf and stealing the antiquities and identity) of our country. One of the highlights is the collaboration in this cultural theft between Google, the BBC and Baha’ism.

All of this is contrary to the absurd claim of the Baha’i sect to sincerity and fidelity in the service of their homeland: “The Baha’is, wherever they live, have been subject to the laws of that country; so far, they are known for their trustworthiness and honesty.” ¹

Yes; foreign made sects can deny everything [that belongs] to the Iranian Islamic culture in our country, submerge it in water, and steal whatever they are not capable [of having] and put it in their own name.
