Large gathering of scholars and clerics in Tehran

 

On Monday last week approximately 18 scholars and clerics from Tehran gathered at the house of Ayatollah Haj Seyyed Taghi Khonsari, who is a distinguished spiritual leader in Tehran, and had a long discussion about important religious issues. According to information received by our reporter, all of the discussion in this spiritual gathering was focused on fighting against the provocative and divisive criminal activities of the perverse Baha’i sect.  According to the report [of the event], the clerics selected a representative among themselves to be honoured in the presence of Esteemed Ayatollah Boroujerdi and to [serve as liaison] between (Qom and Tehran) for the ongoing battle.
