Baha’ism, Wahhabism: Two Sides of One Coin

The British, just as they created the perverse sect of Wahhabism to attract the Sunnis, also prescribed Baha’ism for the Shiites. Of course, it is necessary for the Sunnis and Shiites to know these two sects, because what often causes pessimism is the behaviour of these two sects, which is not [indicative of] the real Shiites and Sunnis.

From the Shiite point of view, the ritual that Husayn-Ali Nouri speaks of is pure heresy. If anyone considers himself a Prophet, considers congregational prayer forbidden, and introduces a new Qiblih [Point of Adoration] in his religion, namely the house and tomb of Baha and Muhammad-Ali Bab, his misleading should not be doubted.

The spread of adultery and corruption through Baha’ism is one of their programmes. It is, of course, the result of the sect’s beliefs, because in this sect, people are cleansed of any obscenity by paying only nine mithqals of gold to the House of Justice in Haifa, Israel. Baha’ism does not make any forbidding rulings on the prohibition of incestuous marriage to a woman, except marriage to a father’s wife.

Many of the cases where obscene and mixed images are broadcast―and sometimes we think the world is ruined―are made through this sect. According to the information obtained, even many perpetrators of blasphemy in the sedition of 1388 [2009] and illegal behaviour were consuming from the common pot of Baha’ism.

Shiism not only does not consider this clan as its own, it also considers dealing and communicating with them to be prohibited and unclean. Baha’ism is a branch of Babism, which was designed by the British in the late 19th century, just like the Wahhabi heresy. Hence, when the two sects of Wahhabism and Baha’ism come together because they have the same origin, they approve and support each other. For example, in the case of the closure of several shops for the propaganda of Baha’ism in Zahedan, the only protests were by a Wahhabi terrorist group that ended its campaign, in full support of Baha’ism. If the origin of both were not the same, the ex-communicated terrorist movement―which, only for the sake of love and appealing to the “Holy Family” considers these people as infidels―would never have considered the sect which proposes a new Point of Adoration, new rules and a new Prophet worthy of support.
