The Proof

Since the Iranian Television Broadcasting[1] officials have been constantly reminded that their current programmes are not as interesting as they should be, it is heard that its officials are planning to prepare and organize new and attractive programmes. Special terms, such as “mashakel” and “mashaker” that are commonly used by the Baha’is, are still used by the TV presenters. The contest of intelligence that they have run on the TV so far has been aimed at discrediting the Iranians at home and abroad and proving their lack of intelligence.
