Nour-e Iran – “Mashhad” [Newspaper] speaks of “the danger of the Baha’is” and writes that for years the Baha’i religion has been in Iran and some other Islamic countries as a result of the instigation of foreigners and a handful of destructive and seditious elements have gathered to further the malicious objectives of the foreigners and have created an uproar.

 

[The article] then warns the government not to allow the Baha’is to expand like the Tudeh[1] [Party], [with the result that the country will] later be stuck with their evil [actions].
