The Sacrilegious Baha’is were Arrested in Shiraz

Social group – In Shiraz, some organizational elements of the perverse Baha’i sect, who were irreverent and held a celebration on the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Reza, were arrested by the intelligence [agents] of Sipah[1] Fars.

According to IQNA from Fars, quoting the public relations office of the Sipah-i-Fajr in Fars Province, at the same time as the martyrdom ceremonies of the Eighth Shining Star of the Heaven of the Imamate and Guardianship, His Holiness Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Reza, a number of organizational elements of the perverse Baha’i sect, who tried to celebrate the anniversary of one of the elders of this perverse sect in Shiraz, [at] the Third Shrine of the Holy Family, were arrested by anonymous soldiers of the Imam-i-Zaman[2] (may God hasten His return) of the Sipah-i-Fajr in Shiraz Province.

The Baha’is arrested in the operation were secretly celebrating the birthday of the sect leader during the period of mourning for the Holy Family in the City of Shiraz.

The perverse Baha’i sect and its organizational elements, according to the orders of the highest authority of this sect, called the House of Justice, by targeting the principles of Shiite belief, has always tried to prevent the spread of the teachings of pure Muhammadan Islam throughout the world, in order to eliminate the possibility of a repetition of religious movements around the world.

In this regard, the organizational elements of the sect have sought to strike at the pure religion of Islam and eliminate its anti-arrogance and anti-oppression traits among the general public, and the aim of the designers of this sedition has been to try to break the national and religious authority of Iran.

In order to deal with the elements of the perverse Baha’i sect, prevent the realization of the goals of securing the sinister interests of foreigners inside the country, and to prevent the reconstruction of the pyramid of the spy organization of this heretical sect that seeks to infiltrate the Muslims under the auspices of the Zionist regime, the above-mentioned people were arrested by the anonymous soldiers of the Imam-i-Zaman (may God hasten His return) of the Sipah-i-Fajr in Shiraz Province.
