After the End of the Marching Ceremony of Quds Day

An Anti-Baha’ism Scroll-Was Signed in Qom

After the Quds Day marching ceremony in Qom, worshipers signed a petition calling on the prosecutor general to deal with elements of the Baha’i organization.

According to Fars [News Agency], the scroll, which was spread out in the path of the worshipers, was met with an unparalleled response.

The anti-Baha’ism scroll states, “Baha’ism is a sect whose leadership is on the fringes of the hostile and usurping regime in Jerusalem, whose policy is to spread lies against Islam and Iran, and to explicitly and recklessly advance the political and cultural goals of the Zionist world. This Zionist-Baha’i organization not only has attacked Islam, but also does not consider humanity and its principles.”

In order to fulfill their humanitarian duty, the signatories of this scroll called on the prosecutor general to deal with all elements of this organization and dissolve it.

Next week, the scroll is scheduled to be sent to the offices of Marja’-i- Taqlid [Religious Jurisprudence Authority] in Qom to be signed by a number them [sic].
