Abtahi Support for Baha’is + Document

Mohammad-Ali Abtahi, one of the perpetrators of the 1388 [2009] sedition, like Mohammad Nourizad, is apparently seeking the support of the Baha’is these days.

According to Jahan News, quoting Seraj24, Mohammad-Ali Abtahi, one of the perpetrators of the 1388 [2009] sedition, like Mohammad Nourizad, is apparently seeking the support of the Baha’is these days, and after Nourizad’s kissing the feet of a Baha’i infant, we should probably expect Abtahi to kiss the hands of the Baha’is.

Recently, in one of his Instagram posts, Abtahi called for the granting of unconditional citizenship rights to Baha’is, while Mousavi Bojnourdi, a member of Mr. Abtahi’s party, told the Association of Combatant Clerics, “Baha’is do not have citizenship rights.”

Abtahi’s remarks seem to be in addition to some kind of Abtahi’s gut feeling and heart intention! It is also a kind of response to Mousavi Bojnourdi and internal differences between some reformists!
