Ayatollah Safi’s answer to a question about the rejection of the request of inheritance from the Baha’i heirs by the courts of justice

According to Shafaqna, the text of the question raised and the answer of this Shiite emulation authority is as follows:

Question: Is the rejection of the request for inheritance from the Baha’i heirs by the courts of justice religiously valid?

Answer: There is no problem if the request for inheritance is to determine his Muslim heirs, but if it is to determine [the inheritance] for the Baha’i survivors, this is not legitimate and is not permissible to accept. God is the knower.
