Imagination

A few days ago, a show was played on Radio Tehran in which a person called a Molaqlaqu’l Zakerin [problematic orator], imitating the voice of Mr. Falsafi, “the famous orator”, spoke about some humorous subjects. Later on, it was said that those who had heard it thought that they had especially ridiculed Mr. Falsafi. The fact is that until two years ago, the words of Mr. Falsafi would be broadcast on the radio with lots of emotion, and his attacks on the Baha’i sect were spread all over. Now Mr. Falsafi is in a situation in which not only are his talks not aired, but he does not even go to the pulpit as before, and he is very rarely invited to participate in the memorial gatherings.
