With enlightening speeches, he mobilized the people against the supporters and propagandists of the Baha’i creed, and finally cleansed the religious city of Azarshahr from the filth of this colonial sect, at which time the incidents were followed up by the police of the time; the martyred Madani was declared the only anti-Baha’i instigator, and as a result he was exiled to Hamadan.
