Republishing of the Debates with the Baha’i Teacher

It was expected that further to the invitation of Mr. Nakhaei, which was extended in five issues to Seyed Abbas Alavi, the Baha’i teacher, an agreeable answer would be received and such a meeting, as described by the writer, would be formed, and based on proofs and reasoning, the invalidity of the religion of the Bab, Baha and Azal would be proved. In this process, in order not to give way to excuses and justifications, we avoided the publication of the rest of Mr. Nakhaei and Seyyed Abbas Alavi’s discussions. 

Now that more than a month has passed from that date [illegible], the members of the perverse sect and its [illegible] propagators [illegible] are smaller than to speak out against the Islamic preachers, and we have become disappointed in the formation of that debate meeting.

On the other hand, some of our kind readers have kept on asking why we have stopped publishing the rest of the discussions. Now, with the consent of Mr. Nakhaei and owing to the insistence of our dear enthusiastic readers, we will continue the publication of the rest of the materials from the next issue, and we invite the esteemed readers to study the rest of the materials so it will become evident to all that the words of the teachers of the Baha’i and Babi sects are completely baseless and in the eyes of the learned and knowledgeable people, are not worth a penny.

We hope that from the point of view of rejecting the nonsensical and idle talks of the Baha’is and Babis, the contents of these discussions will be useful for the Muslims.
