Arrest of Elements of Baha’ism by the Fars Intelligence Organization

A number of members of the perverse Baha’i sect, who had attempted to celebrate the anniversary of one of the great personages of this perverse sect, were arrested in Shiraz.

According to the provincial group of the Young Journalists Club of Shiraz, quoting the Fajr Intelligence Organization of the Fars [Province], as the [commemoration] of the martyrdom of the eighth shining star of the sky of the Imamate and Guardianship, Imam Ali ibn Musa al-Ridha, a number of organizational elements of the perverse Baha’i sect were simultaneously attempting to celebrate the anniversary of one of its great personages in the City of Shiraz, at the third shrine of the Ahlul-Bayt (members of the Holy Lineage). These elements were arrested by the anonymous soldiers of Imam-i-Zaman[1] (may God hasten His return) of the Fajr Intelligence Organization of the Fars [Province].

It is worth mentioning that the Baha’is arrested in this operation were secretly celebrating the birthday of the sect’s great personage in Shiraz, while committing sacrilege during the mourning period of the Ahlul-Bayt.

According to the command centre of the [perverse Baha’i] sect, called the House of Justice, [by using] the principles of Shiite belief, this sect and its organizational elements have always tried to prevent the spread of the teachings of pure Muhammadan Islam throughout the world and prevent the expansion of religious movements around the world. In this regard, the organizational elements of the sect have sought to strike at the religion of Islam and eliminate its anti-arrogance and anti-oppression traits in society, and the aim of the designers of this sedition was to try to break the national and religious authority of Iran.

In order to deal with the elements of the perverse Bahai sect; to prevent the realization of the goals and sinister interests of foreigners inside the country; and to prevent the reconstruction of the pyramid of the spy organization of this perverse sect that seeks to infiltrate the Muslims with the support of the Zionist regime, the mentioned elements were arrested by the Fajr Intelligence Organization.
