Instructions of the Perverse Baha’i Sect to Increase the Birth Rate

Taking advantage of the opportunity presented [by the fact that] Iranian Muslims are seeking to control the population; the perverse Baha’i sect has recently instructed its followers to increase number [of births] and thereby add to the size of the sect’s population. It has been said that from these instructions the goal of the perverse Baha’i sect is to gain more opportunities to prepare the ground for political activities and to show themselves as a minority worthy of attention because of its numbers.
