Today, the Perverse Baha’i Sect is a Serious Threat to the Youth

Expert and researcher in the field of heretical sects in the second phase of the continuation of the fourth training course of Yaran-e Farhang [Friends of Culture], which was held at the Islamic Azad University, Arak Branch [illegible] [explained that] the perverse Baha’i sect is one of the most important threats to the youth of the country.

According to the central Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) - Dr. Rezaienejad stated, “The perverse Baha’i sect is hated by all the divine religions, because [this sect] not only rejects the necessities of the religion of Islam; rather, it attributes the status of lordship and divinity to the Bab and Baha, and negates the resurrection and justice. It is such that they are not allowed to propagate in the fake country of Israel and have been supported by Jews and Israel just because they rebelled against Islam.

He added, “While Baha’ism has claimed the slogan of ‘Separation of Religion from Politics’ to deceive the people, it is a purely political and organizational party. Even the ‘Mashriqu’l-Adhkar[1]’ or Baha’i houses of worship operating under the supervision of continental or national assemblies, are completely organizational and political. In a way, their first ‘Mashriqu’l-Adhkar’ in Ashgabat became a gathering place for the enemies of Islam and apostate and freemasonry elements who targeted the whole territory of Iran and were happy with the partition of the northern spheres of Iran by the Russian emperors. This ‘Mashriqu’l-Adhkar’ was so political that it was hated by the communists; it was shut down by them and completely destroyed after the 1948 earthquake.”

At the end, Rezaienejad said, “The connection and interaction of the perverse Baha’i sect with the arrogant powers of the world from the beginning of its existence until now shows the peak of their submission to foreigners and their ultimate resentment of Islam and Muslims. Contrary to the sect’s demagogic and oppressive human rights rhetoric, they have historically been praised by the arrogant powers (from the Russian tsar and British emperor to the presidents of the United States and Israel) and have always been supported in their crimes against Muslims.”
