[Baha’i] Activity in the Country’s Schools

The head of the country’s seminaries, referring to the heavy duties of the clergy and religious missionaries said, “Today, we are witnessing Baha’i activities in the country’s schools, in such a way that their thoughts are easily propagated.”

According to Mouood, quoting Fars this morning at the conference of the propaganda pioneers in Hamadan Province, Seyyed Hashem Hosseini Bushehri said that the enemy has made every effort to eliminate the Shiites. He added, “Creating a base in the country for [Baha’i] propaganda activities and anti-religion is on the agenda of the enemies, and it must be taken care of.”

Referring to the enemy’s efforts to divert young people from the path of religion, he stated, “Cultural aggression, the killing of Shiites in countries such as Syria and Iraq, the assassination of the border guards of Islamic Iran, and similar [actions], are carried out in the fight against Islam.”

The director of the country’s seminaries, referring to the heavy duties of the clergy and religious missionaries, said, “Today, we are witnessing the Baha’i activities in the country's schools, in such a way that their thoughts are easily propagated. Once upon a time, Baha’is did not have the courage to announce [themselves] in the country, but today, a Baha’i student can easily express his thoughts at school.”

... The director of the seminaries of the country, addressing the clerics and missionaries present in the gathering, said, “Try to resolve the questions and doubts in the minds of the youth and do not let the young generation stray far from us.”
