Two Baha’i centres and their 25 branches were seized in Mashhad

Mashhad- Two huge centres of Baha’ism and 25 other branches were seized in “Jam” and “Salari” streets in Mashhad by combatant groups affiliated with His Holiness Ayatollah Shirazi.

After the occupation of these two centres, “Haziratu'l-Quds[1]”, the Islamic flag was installed on top of the centres and the rest of their branches, and all their documents and official papers were seized.

The two Baha’i centres are planned to be used by the Islamic Society overseen by Khorasan Theological School.
