An Overview of the Vision and Operations of the Anjoman-e Hojjatieh [The Hojjatieh Society] (3)

Hojjatieh Society and the Tudeh Party [Iranian Communist Party]

Third Part

Above all, we must note that members of this Society, in their usual manner, present their topics as if no one else in this world has thought about that topic…

... Or when campaigning against the Baha’is, by magnifying the matters, they exaggerate the Baha’i issue to the point that if the Hojjatieh Society did not exist, Iran would collapse the next day because of Baha’is. While we all know that Bahaism was a weak leaf on the tree of imperialism, and our nation, by enduring tortures and martyrdoms, has always sought to radically uproot this evil tree...

... The Hojjatieh Society as always in the past, has identified itself by campaigning against the Baha’is. After the victory of  Revolution, and eliminating the hands of the Great Satan, the “Guardian of The Age”, bringing with it the destruction of Bahaism, an attempt was made to replace Bahaism with the Tudeh Party and, as usual, publicize the matter in some ways...

... The scandal of the Tudeh mercenary party, the arrest of their leaders and the queueing of the party’s supporters before the town’s army to introduce itself, once again demonstrated that the unknown soldiers of the Islamic Revolution are capable of uprooting the Tudeh Party (like the Baha’i sect and the Munáfiqín))[1], so radically that members of the Hojjatieh Society, with a quarter of a century [of experience], could never believe it, not even in their dreams.
