Who Was Asma Jahangir And What Did She Do Against Iran? + Photos.

According to Afkar News, the Pakistan media reported the death of Asma Jahangir, the UN special rapporteur on human right issues in Iran, due to a heart attack [sic]. Jahangir succeeded Ahmad Shaheed two years ago and was tasked with preparing anti-Iranian reports and preparing further sanctions against Iran…

Many historians and scholars see fundamental similarities between the emergence of the Ahmadiyya sect in India in the late 19th century and the perverse Baha’i sect in Qajar Iran. Just like Mirza [sic] Ali Muhammad, the Bab, who created Babism (the main source of the Baha’i sect) with British support to divide the Shias, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad created a sect in Pakistan under the protection of Britain to create a rift in the Muslims in India…

Ahmadiyya beliefs, like the British-made Baha’ism, are full of misleading and false ideas that have no purpose other than to abrogate the divine law of Islam.

Exactly in accordance with the Baha’i sect’s policy, the English Ahmadiyya sect is also propagandizing around the world through a wide and complex network of mosques, schools, medical centres, missionaries, television and radio networks and publications...

If Shirin Ebadi, due to her full-fledged and comprehensive defence of the Baha’is, has fuelled the serious scandal in Iranian society about her becoming a Baha’i, so did Asma Jahangir, who faced the same charge inside Pakistan because of her stubborn defence of the Ahmadiyya sect and its members.

But more interestingly, this same lady, when she was the UN special rapporteur on the religious freedoms of minorities, with the help of Shirin Ebadi and her colleagues inside Iran, was busy reporting and preparing documents against the Islamic Republic of Iran, especially regarding the Baha’i issue. For example, on 23 October 2008, in an interview with the UN News Centre, she claimed that, “Baha’is are among the religious minority groups who are being oppressed in Iran.” In 2006, in an official report, she accused the Islamic Republic of “systematic and governmental persecution” of Baha’is in Iran.
