A Muslim writer warns the expansion of the propagation of the perverse Baha’i sect in Kazakhstan

Tehran, IRNA, 28 Azar [1374], 18 [19] December [1995]

 

Shirkhan Morteza, the famous Muslim writer of Kazakhstan in an article published in the latest weekly journal of Novoe Pokolenie wrote: Some of the followers of the hollow sects such as Baha’ism who are being banned in some other countries, have come to Kazakhstan and have started their activities. This is a danger that threatens our national stability and security.

Pointing out that in Kazakhstan only Islam and Christianity are the recognized religions, he said: The missionaries of the unreliable sects strive to attract people by giving them material promises.

This Muslim writer at the continuation of his article warned the families to be careful of their children not to be deceived by such missionaries.
