The perverted sects of Babism and Baha’ism… according to the records, want to abuse and propagandize any power to their own advantage…

These idiots still do not understand that Islam and religiousness and following the holy goal of the great Islamic leaders are not for a specific population and group (the difference is that no one has the right to walk without the order of the Imam or his successor, who is the great authority of the Shiite religion). Our dear compatriots are informed that, some time ago, the Haziratu’l-Quds was the occupied by the Muslim soldiers and the members of the perverted [Baha’i] sect were destroyed and scattered. Therefore, the happiness and false rumours of the people of the perverted [Baha’i] sect, are pure lies; people are vigilant, and it is impossible for the people to be deceived. The law enforcement officers are very careful about the situation.

Therefore, such false propaganda is not effective any longer and they punch in vain, because the government and the military governorate are completely vigilant.
