Baha’i Influence in the Pharmaceutical Market

According to a well-informed source, a number of Baha’i Zionist activists have recently purchased a number of pharmacies in Tehran through a calculated programme, which has raised concerns in religious circles. One of the officials in charge of the location of the pharmacies bought by these people in the last few months announced that they are mostly in the northern regions of Tehran. He added that, considering that most of the shares of pharmaceutical factories abroad are in the hands of the Zionists, the high price of pharmacies, especially those located in the northern regions of Tehran, and the high volume of investment that has been made in this regard, the vigilance of pharmacy owners as well as officials from relevant ministries can prevent the puppet sect from carrying out sinister plans to create a false medicine market in the future.
