Broadcast of the “Story of Baha’ism” on IRIB Mostanad TV Channel (Literary and Artistic News)

The documentary series “Story of Baha’ism”, narrating the history and roots of this perverse sect, is being broadcast on IRIB Mostanad.

In an interview with Kayhan, Salim Ghafouri, the head of IRIB Mostanad said, “The documentary series ‘Story of Baha’ism’, directed by Seyyed Raed Amiri Tehrani, and a production of the IRIB Research Centre, is being broadcast in six episodes from Saturday this week.”

He added, “Naturally, familiarity with the contemporary history of the country, especially the British and [sects created by] colonialism, is an important issue that our people should be aware of.”

The documentary “Story of Baha’ism” has also tried to examine the formation of Baha’ism in Iran and provide the audience with information about the origins of this perverse sect.

It is worth mentioning that the “Story of Baha’ism” series will be broadcast every night at 18:30 on IRIB Mostanad, and its broadcast parts can be downloaded on IRIB Mostanad website. Since Ghafouri’s appointment to the management of IRIB Mostanad, there have been positive developments in this network compared to the past.
