Baha’is Announce Their Readiness for Participation in Pakistan’s Economic Projects

The leaders of the Baha’is, residing in the Pakistani Border Province, in a meeting with the governor general of this province, [in order to] expand their influence in Pakistan, committed to collaborating with the government of Pakistan in the implementation of development projects.

Amir Golestan Janjavi, the governor general of the Border Province, told the visitors that the government of Pakistan is completely committed to protecting the rights and privileges of the minorities within the framework of Pakistan’s constitution.

There has not been any further information reported regarding the matters discussed in this visit.

The authorities informed of the region’s political matters believe that the main Baha’i organizations are in Haifa, one of the occupied Palestinian cities; as a result, after the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, many of the escaped entrepreneurs of this sect have taken refuge in the occupied Palestine. Even now, the Baha’is, as the hidden hands of international Zionism, attempt to implement economic projects and development plans in the Islamic countries in order to execute the unholy [sinister] policies of the occupiers of Palestine.
