An Islamic Conference Chaired By Ayatollah Borujerdi Will Be Held in Near Future

According to the reports, an Islamic (Shiite) Conference will soon be held in Iran, chaired by the Shia marja’e taqlid [religious jurisprudence authority], Ayatollah Borujerdi. This conference will be held with the participation of 250 prominent Shiite scholars, and although it is not yet clear what will be the theme of the Conference, it is expected that the main themes of the conference will be related to the fight against the Baha’is and how to continue such combat.

This is the first time an Islamic Conference will be held in this way.
