The Baha’i World Congress Will Be Held in Tokyo

According to a traveller who has come to Tehran from Japan, the Baha’i World Congress will be held in Tokyo this year. This World Congress, which will be chaired by a representative of the Baha’is of Iran, will discuss the promotion of Baha’ism in the Far East and Japan.

After the Second World War, the power and legendary influence of the Japanese emperor, who was considered to be the god of the country, has diminished, and most Japanese people do not believe in Buddhism and other religions. Therefore, the communists on one hand, and the Baha’is, on the other, have targeted Japan and have been active in that country.
