Baha’is Are the Foot Soldiers of Colonialism in Confronting the Islamic Revolution
The Islamic Republic’s policy in dealing with different ideas and opinions is based on appeasement, but Baha’is say amongst themselves, “Khomeini hated Baha’is”! It is better to say “Imam Khomeini hated Baha’ism”.
According to Shabestan News Agency, the Islamic Republic’s policy in dealing with different ideas and opinions is based on appeasement, but Baha’is say amongst themselves, “Khomeini hated Baha’is”! It is better to say “Imam Khomeini hated Baha’ism”. Yes, as the imam said, “If we did not have any reasons to believe that Baha’is are American spies, Reagan’s support of them was enough to prove it. Baha’ism is not a religion; it is a party― a party that was previously supported by the British, and now by the United States.
During the Pahlavi era, the Baha’i movement was also spying for Britain and Israel and did not neglect any betrayal of Iran and Islam. As Hossein Fardoust (a close associate of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi) wrote in his memoirs: “The Baha’is that I saw did not really have feelings of being Iranian. This was quite obvious, and naturally, these people were born spies.” At present, the Baha’i movement, as a colonial infantry, betrays Iran.
During the sedition of 1388 , the active presence of this movement, preparing films and photos of the internal problems and challenges of the country and posting them on foreign networks (to blacken the image of the regime and create cost for the regime) are examples of this [fact]. Also, according to law enforcement and security authorities, most of the girls that were arrested during the removing-of-the-hijab movement were Baha’is. Even in the past year, with the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Baha’i movement formed several mafia[-like] gangs to hoard masks; they were identified and dispersed.
Thus, it can be explicitly said that Baha’ism is not a religion; it is a colonial political party. If they give up their social malice, the Islamic regime will not fight with them; although, since the beginning of the Islamic Republic, it has been like this.
