The Activities of the Baha’i Sect

The Baha’is are expected to hold a conference, chaired by the wife of Shoghi Effendi. It is said that some of the wealthy and influential Iranians who follow this sect will participate in the mentioned conference.

It is said that consultations of the Baha’is at this conference will be significant. It has been reported that the Baha’i sect intends to form a kind of majority for itself. This means that they will create an independent government and begin to operate from a corner of the world.

The expenses and the budget of this government will be covered and provided by those wealthy followers of Baha’ism.

But the informed sources believe that the small number of this sect and their man-made religion will not create such a majority.
