Baha’i propaganda programme in Muharram

This week, several members of the Khamsi and Bagherov family came to Tehran from the United States. They are the Baha’i leaders, and on behalf of the Baha’i World Centre, are responsible for the administration of American Baha’is. On behalf of the headquarters of the Baha’i Centre in Acre they are commissioned to oversee the affairs of the Baha’is in Iran and create incidents in the month of Muharram. Then, the propaganda apparatus of the Baha’is in the United States and Europe would magnify these events and propagate against the government and the people of Iran.
