The launch of a new counter-revolutionary satellite network, with the aim of broadcasting socio-political issues against the Iranian regime, is on the agenda of an individual Baha’i. According to reports, the Nili TV Network was founded by a Baha’i named ... and is scheduled to start operating in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) next week. Currently, work related to the production of the network’s products is underway, and orders have been given to some people by those involved in the above network. In this regard, one of the former TV presenters has also signed a cooperation agreement with the staff of this network and has been working for some time with his family in Dubai and Cyprus to attract advertisements and sponsors. The UAE government has not commented on the incident.
