Baha’is Emigrate to Southern Africa

Following the news we published in the previous issue on the matter of emigration of the Baha’is, we have been informed that a number of believers of this sect have migrated to South Africa and many others are in the process of emigrating.

According to the ten-year programme, which Shoghi Effendi has devised, it seems that within ten years, southern Africa should become the centre of the Baha’i sect. In our view, truly the best place for the propagation of the perverse Baha’i sect is Africa.
