Attacking the Islamic Veil and Propagating Baha’ism Are Great Signs of the Enemy! (Literary and Artistic News)
An examination of the anti-Iranian Persian-language media and quasi-media shows that their current instructions are based on two things: Attacking the Islamic veil and supporting the Baha’i sect!
The mentioned quasi-media outlets, in their various programmes, from absolute entertainment to various so-called political and social programmes, deal with the issue of lack of freedom in Iran under various pretexts. Then, in expressing examples of their false claims, they insist on the issue of the Islamic veil, and they interpret the explicit Quranic teaching and [law] in contradiction to human rights, and introduce this guarantor of women’s security and dignity as a factor in backwardness.
The Voice of America, Manoto and the monarchist networks are broadcasting clips of women in some streets of Tehran, trying to show the uncovering of the veil as a public demand in order to distance the society from the religion of Islam and the Revolution by spreading immorality and indifference.
Although explicit and decisive support for Baha’ism has a history, the [purpose for] promotion of this colonial-built sect at present is to destroy the Islamic and Shiite roots, by guiding the young generation to the colonial Zionist Baha’i sect, which is a step in the context of soft war against the religious system.
The banner of support for Baha’ism, which seems to be very prominent among the monarchist media, is the Manoto Network, which operates from London with the financial support and media of the British MI6!
Opposition networks deliberately do not provide a few facts about Baha’ism: first, the role of Britain in the rise of Baha’ism; second, why Muslims oppose the Baha’is; third, the relationship between Zionism and the Baha’is. It seems that the domestic media, especially the national media, should be more involved in promoting the Islamic veil and exposing the evil nature of Baha’ism.
