Baha’is Pretending to be Oppressed in Cyberspace

It is always one of the tactics of misguided sects and deviant groups to pretend that they are being oppressed and that the government and the Islamic Regime are the oppressors.

According to Ferghe News, it is always one of the tactics of misguided sects and deviant groups to pretend that they are being oppressed and that the government and the Islamic Regime are the oppressors. One of these groups is the perverse Baha’i sect, which reports the unjustified killing and murdering of Baha’is and the unjustified arrest of its members in Iran.

In cyberspace, a wave has recently been created in which [it reports] that the religious minorities in Iran are deprived of their citizenship rights. [At this time,] while we see different churches in different parts of the country, or Christians enjoying natural trade and freedoms alongside the rest of the people, and also this group has a representative in the Islamic Consultative Assembly, is this not a proof of freedom and citizenship? The same is true of other divine religions and religious minorities [such as] the Jews and the Zoroastrians...

But there is no doubt that Baha’ism in Iran is deprived of these rights. Because in the Iranian Constitution, Baha’ism is not mentioned as a religion or as a minority, because this group is a deviant group formed by the colonialists themselves to divert people from the holy religion of Islam.

Another question that arises is whether the same perverse sect that annually sends millions of dollars of this country’s currency to Israel for the survival of the corrupt occupying regime in Jerusalem [has the] same rights in the occupied regions as they claim are being violated in Iran? Or do they not have the right to [spread] any propaganda in that area?!
