Bahai way of working in Iran!

Baha’is pay Millions of Dollars to Iranian government plus a bond that they will not proselytize again. Baha’ism is considered a cult in Iran and Proselytizing ‘Baha’i Faith’ is punishable by law.

Sahba Farnoush, a Baha’i resident of the city of Tehran, who was detained and sent to prison some time ago, along with at least 15 other Baha’is, when security officers raided their homes in many different cities of Iran, was released by posting 200 million toumans (approx $66,280) bail.

Navid Aghdasi, a Baha’i resident who was detained and sent to Evin prison some time ago, because he followed up on the unsolved murder of his maternal cousin, Ataollah Rezvani, was released by posting 200 million toumans ($66,280) bail.

Shahram Najaf Tomara, a Baha’i from Tehran, was released at 11 pm on Monday December 28th 2015, after posting bail of 1 billion rials (approx $33,140).

According one of his close relatives, he was called in to the Intelligence and Security office of Hamedan, and was warned that if he teaches the Baha’i Faith again, he will be facing exile or an increase in his prison term.

On November 2014, Hamid Azizi was detained under charges of promotion of anti-regime groups, and after ten days of interrogation, was temporarily released on 100 million toumans (approx $33,140) bail.

Yashar Rezvani (یاشار رضوانی), a Bahai from Kerman who has been living in Tehran, has been freed on bail. He was arrested in a raid on his home on August 3. After over a month of solitary confinement and interrogation in Evin Prison, he was transferred to a general wing of the same prison. He is to be charged with membership of Bahai organisations. Bail was set at 200 million tumans (56,000 euros; 64,000 $US), and was apparently approved in mid-Septmber, but for some reason his actual release on bail was then delayed for 10 days.

Bahai Principle: Removal of All Prejudices – Contradictions


contradiction11. Removing All Prejudice or Prohibition of Meeting with Non-Bahais
Abdul Baha: Have no prejudice and show no hatred towards any religion.

Bahaullah and Abdul Baha: Keep away from non-Bahais and do not socialize with them.

“Keep aloof from the scent of ignorant prejudice, enmity, vulgar hatred, and sexual, national and religious delusions, for they are all against God’s religion and His satisfaction and will deprive mankind of God’s graces . . . do not have the slightest hatred towards anyone from any nation, religion, tribe, sex, or land, rather show utmost compassion and friendship,” Riyaz Qadimi, Gulzar-i ta`alim Bahai, pp. 366-367.

“Do not socialize with those who deny God (meaning non-Bahais) and his signs and keep away from their kind,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39; “In it incumbent on ever soul to keep away from the wicked breath of the polytheists (deniers of Bahaism),” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39; “Know that God has forbidden his friends from meeting with the polytheists (deniers of Bahaism) and hypocrites,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, p. 280. for more quotes refer to chapter 2.

2. Having No Prejudice or Considering All Non-Bahais Ignorant and Unreasonable?
Abdul Baha: Religious prejudice destroys the foundations of humanity.

Bahaullah: Only Bahais are knowledgeable and reasonable and non-Bahais are ignorant and lack reason.

“The fifth Bahai principle is that sexual prejudice, religious prejudice, spiritual prejudice, national prejudice, and political prejudice are the destroyers of human foundations,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, p. 147.

“From now on nobody is to be called knowledgeable, except those who have decorated themselves with the garment of this New Affair (meaning those who have become Bahais),” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 138-139; “If today, someone grasps all of the knowledge on earth but stops at the word ‘yes’ (meaning does not become a Bahai), the Lord will not pay attention to him (ladi l-Haqq madhkur na) and he will be considered as the most ignorant amongst the people,” Bahaullah, Iqtidarat wa chand lauh digar, p. 111; “The general criterion is what we mentioned and any soul who has success in it, meaning recognizes and realizes the Sunrise of Manifestation (meaning himself), will be mentioned in the Divine Book as someone who possesses reason or else he will be (mentioned as) ignorant even if he himself thinks that his reason equals that of the whole world,” `Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 7, p. 160; “No one has denied or will deny what has been revealed by the Ancient Pen (meaning himself) in this Most Great Manifestation regarding society, unity, manners, rites, and being occupied with what has benefits for the people, except that he completely lacks reason,” Bahaullah, Iqtidarat wa chand lauh digar, p. 168.

3. Removing Prejudice or Claiming Each Baha’i worth More than a Million Non-Bahais?
Abdul Baha: People must not regard themselves superior to others.

Bahaullah: “My friends are the pearls of [this] order and all others are earthly pebbles . . . a single one of these (Bahais) is more precious than a million others (non-Bahais),”

“One of Bahaullah’s teachings is mutual aid between humans. This aid is much greater than equality. It means that not only one must not see himself superior to others; rather, he must sacrifice his life and belongings for other people,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 107.

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, p. 353.

4. Removing Prejudice or Depriving Non-Bahais from Their Share of Inheritance?
Abdul Baha: All people have equal rights.

Bahaullah: Non-Bahais do not inherit from their Bahai parents.

“There is equality between people and complete brotherhood. Justice implies that the rights of humankind be protected and preserved and all have equal rights,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 30.

“Bahaullah states that non-Bahais have no right to inherit from their Bahai parents or relatives,” Bahaullah, The Kitabi Aqdas, p. 184.

5. Removing All Prejudice or Calling Non-Bahais Animals
Abdul Baha: The truth can only be exposed when all religions remove prejudice.

Bahaullah: Non-Bahais are animals.

“The follower of Moses must put aside prejudice, the Christian must put aside prejudice, and the Buddhist must put aside prejudice. Not until this is performed will it be possible to expose the truth . . . [no one] should have prejudice,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p.18.

“Today, according to the decree of the Point of Bayan (meaning the Bab), those individuals who turn away from this Novel Affair (meaning Bahaism) are deprived of the garb of being called and described [as humans?] and are assembled and mentioned as animals in the presence of God,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 213; “Do not see the polytheists (deniers of Bahaism) but as earthworms and their sounds but the buzzing of flies,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 1, no. 20, p. 183; “O group of polytheists (deniers of Bahaism), if you take pride in your name remaining amongst the animals or being mentioned amongst the livestock, then take pride in that for you are worthy of it,” Bahaullah, Athar-i Qalam-i A`la, vol. 2, no. 81, p. 452; “Oh you donkeys! Whatever God says is the truth and will not become void by the words of the polytheists (deniers of Bahaism),” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 174; “When the one who turned away from God halted (in accepting me) and fell off the path, in that moment his body left the garb of humanness and appeared and became visible in the skin of animals. Sanctified is He who changes the beings how he likes,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 110.

6. Removing All Prejudice or Calling Non-Bahais Bastards
Abdul Baha: “This century, is the century of progress. These prejudices are unjustified. These are rooted in ignorance.”

Bahaullah: Non-Bahais are Bastards .

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 25.

“Whoever denies this apparent exalted luminous grace (meaning Bahaism), it is worthy that he asks his state from his mother and he will soon be returned to the bottom of hell,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 4, pp. 355 and Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganj-i shaygan, p. 78; “Whoever has the enmity of this servant (meaning Bahaullah) in his heart, certainly Satan has entered their mother’s bed,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganj-i shaygan, p. 79.

7. Removing All Prejudice or Saying Non-Bahais Are like Dry Wood That Are Only Worthy of Fire?
Abdul Baha: We act to remove prejudice but others just talk.

Bahaullah: Non-Bahais are like dry wood that are only worthy of fire.

“To reach the goal of (removing prejudice) we strive . . . but others just talk,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 99.

“Anyone who has a garden will not allow the dry trees to remain in the garden and will definitely cut them and throw them in fire, for dry wood is only worthy of fire. Thus, O inhabitants of my orchard, protect yourselves from the wicked poisonous breath and void breeze which is socializing with the polytheists (deniers of Bahaism) and the unaware (ghafil),” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ma’idiy-i asimani, vol. 8, p. 39.

8. Removing Prejudice or Depriving of All Graces, Those Who View Non-Bahais as Humans?
Abdul Baha: People must not regard themselves superior to others.

Bahaullah: Whoever call my deniers humans, will be deprived of all of God’s graces.

“One of Bahaullah’s teachings is mutual aid between humans. This aid is much greater than equality. It means that not only one must not see himself superior to others; rather, he must sacrifice his life and belongings for other people,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 3, p. 107.

“From this day, any individual that mentions as human a single person from those who deny me—whether that [denier] has a high or low stature—they will be excluded from all of (God’s) Merciful Graces, let alone trying to prove [those deniers] have dignity or stature,” Bahaullah, Badi`, p. 140.

9. Removing Racial Prejudice or Calling All Black Africans Irrational Savages?
Abdul Baha: Prejudice destroys the foundations of humanity.

Abdul Baha: The inhabitants of a land like Africa are all like wild savages and land-dwelling animals that lack common-sense and knowledge.

“The fifth Bahai principle is that sexual prejudice, religious prejudice, spiritual prejudice, national prejudice, and political prejudice are the destroyers of human foundations,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, p. 147.

“The inhabitants of a land like Africa are all like wild savages and land-dwelling animals that lack common-sense and knowledge and are all wild. There is not a single wise and civilized person among them,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Makatib (Egypt), vol. 1, pp. 331; “The wild tribes have no superiority over animals. For example what is the difference between African blacks and American blacks? The [black Africans] are cows that God has created with human faces. The [black Americans] are civilized, intelligent, and have culture . . .” `Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 3, p. 48.

10. Having No Prejudice or Saying Turks Deserve Ridiculous Answers?
Abdul Baha: “In the presence of God there is no [such thing] as English, French, Turk, or Persian. To God they are all the same.”

Abdul Baha: Turks deserve ridiculous answers.

Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 45-46.

“When Djemal Pasha . . . reached Acre and asked to see me, I mounted a donkey and headed for his home. As soon as he saw me, he greeted me and sat me next to him and without hesitation said: “You are a corrupter of religion and that is why the government of Iran exiled you here . . .” I thought to myself that he is a Turk and I must give him a ridiculous and silencing answer,” Asad-Allah Fazil Mazandarani, Asrar al-athar khususi,vol. 3,p. 42-43.

11. Having No Prejudice or Praising the Most Prejudice Based Religion to Ever Exist?
Abdul Baha: Religious prejudice destroys the foundations of humanity.

The Bab: Destroy all non-Babi books. Massacre all non-Babis and destroy their monuments. Teaching non-Babi books is prohibited.

Bahaullah: “I [swear by] He who in His hand is my soul and my essence, a single letter from the Bayan is dearer to me than everything that is in the heavens and the earth.”

“The fifth Bahai principle is that sexual prejudice, religious prejudice, spiritual prejudice, national prejudice, and political prejudice are the destroyers of human foundations,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Khatabat (Tehran), vol. 2, p. 147.

The Bab, Farsi Bayan: “Chapter six of the sixth unit which is about destroying all books but those that have been written or will be written about this order (meaning the Bab’s creed)”; “The utterance of the [book or religion] of Bayan in the day of the appearance of his Highness A`la (meaning the Bab) was to behead, burn the books, destroy the monuments, and massacre [everyone] but those who believed [in the Bab’s religion] and verified it,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Makatib (Egypt: 1330 AH), vol. 2, p. 266.

“The utterance of the [book or religion] of Bayan in the day of the appearance of his Highness A`la (meaning the Bab) was to behead, burn the books, destroy the monuments, and massacre [everyone] but those who believed [in the Bab’s religion] and verified it,” `Abdu’l-Baha, Makatib (Egypt: 1330 AH), vol. 2, p. 266.

The Bab, Farsi Bayan: “The tenth chapter of the fourth unit which is about [the decree] that it is prohibited to teach any book but the book of Bayan.”

Asad-Allah Fazil Mazandarani, Asrar al-athar khususi, vol. 5, p. 333.

12. Removing All Prejudice or Discrimination between Men and Women?
Abdul Baha: All people have equal rights.

Bahaullah and Abdul Baha: Women are inferior to men, they take a smaller share of inheritance, and cannot be a member of the UHJ.

“There is equality between people and complete brotherhood. Justice implies that the rights of humankind be protected and preserved and all have equal rights,” Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Payam-i malakut, p. 30.

“A woman’s question was referred to him who had asked why hasn’t God made any woman Prophets and why have all Divine Manifestations been men. He answered: ‘Although women and men share the same capacities and abilities, there is definitely no doubt that men are superior and stronger. Even in animals like pigeons, sparrows, peacocks, and other [birds] this advantage is visible,’” Mahmud Zaraqani, Bada’i` al-athar, vol. 1, p. 153.

The deceased’s property are split into 2520 portions. Out of these, 1080 are for the children, 390 for the wives, fathers 330, mothers 270, brothers 210, sisters 150, teachers 90 (Abd al-Hamid Ishraq Khawari, Ganjiniy-i Hudud wa ahkam, chap. 10, p. 117-119).

The Spiritual Assembly of
the Bahá’ís of Singapore

Dear Bahá’í Friends,

The Universal House of Justice has received your letter dated 2 November 2009, together with its enclosures, regarding the further actions of Mr. Jamshed Fozdar. His latest communication to your Assembly is indeed highly regrettable. Your Assembly should write to him to say that it has nothing further to add to what was conveyed to him in your letter of 15 October 2009 and to urge him to reflect upon the guidance it contained.

The House of Justice has also noted Mr. Fozdar’s actions in sending critical and contentious messages to Bahá’í institutions and agencies in Singapore. It is confident that your Assembly will assist them not to be disheartened by such communications and remind them that there is nothing to be gained by attempting to engage in a dialogue with the writer. Rather they can be encouraged to move forward with vital work of the Cause within the framework of the Five Year Plan, turning their faces to the Abhá Beauty and trusting in His unfailing care and protection.

With loving Bahá’í greetings,

What a Joke !? Baha’is of India identify themselves as Muslims due to persecution !

Shoeb Khan | TNN | Sep 10, 2016, 11.36 AM IST

JAIPUR: The state has just one registered Jew and about 85 Parsis among its population of 6.85 crore, as per the Census report on other religions released recently.

Parsis, who set foot in this region during the British era over a century ago, are on the verge of `extinction’ in the state. Both these ethnic minority have their roots in Ajmer, Merwara, which was directly under the colonial rule.

In a surprise, Rajasthan also has 50 persons who identified themselves as members of Natural Religion (religion of nature), which follows Native American traditions.

However, none of them could be traced. Pushkar in Ajmer has a rich history of Jews which goes back to the period before the founding of Israel (1948).

Over the past few decades, the number of Jews outnumbers other foreign tourists in Pushkar. It’s also home to one of the nine Chabads (religious centre of Jews) in the county , where Jewish festivals are still celebrated.

Though TOI tried to track the lone Jewish person registered as a Rajasthan national, he couldn’t be traced. The Jewish population is barely above 500 in the country. Parsis, known for their business acumen, came to Ajmer to establish the railways from Gujarat and Bombay . They numbered 300 during the period between 1870 and 1890. With the Parsi population fast declining in the country , their numbers have dwindled to 85 in 2011.

Adarbad Motafram, a lone priest living in Ajmer and a caretaker of the fire temple, says, “Barely 20-21families from my community are left in Rajasthan. Ajmer has nine families, Udaipur five, Jaipur three, Jodhpur and Kota one each.We gather during our festivals, with Nowruz the most popular.” Motafram is a geography professor at the Government College of Ajmer.

Buddhism, which had flourished in Hadoti region, has only about 12,000 followers in the state now. The Buddhist monasteries or complexes at four places -Bhairat in Alwar, Kholvi in Jhalawar, Bandarez in Dausa and Ramgoan in Tonk -testifies to the strong presence of Budhism in this region, which has disappeared with time.

Discovered by the Archaeological Survey of India’s (ASI) first director-general Alexander Cunningham in the late 18th century , these historical sites are today crying for attention from the state.

Baha’i, considered one of the most persecuted religions, also has its presence in Rajasthan, in Jaipur. They often hit the headlines for being persecuted in Iran and Turkey . Figures say that the state has 18 Baha’is. They also have a religious centre in Sanganer which faced attacks in 2015 over the ownership of property . Most of their religious practices are identical to Islam, and names similar to Muslim names. Baha’i religious leaders claimed they have followers numbering to about 20,000 in the state.”Due to persecution, we identify ourselves as Muslims,” said a Baha’i leader, requesting anonymity.

Bahais and Violence: Abdul Baha, the Face Slapper

When Baha’is preach their beliefs, the audience are induced into believing that Baha’ism is a peaceful religion refraining from all forms of violence. In the current article, using historical evidence from trusted Baha’i eyewitnesses, we will show that this is simply not the case and Abdu’l-Baha was a violent person who would routinely slap people.

Take that!

One of the key witnesses to these acts is Khalil Shahidi who was born in Akka and was a trusted companion of Abdu’l-Baha and other Baha’i leaders for about forty years. According to the famous Baha’i translator Ahang Rabbani:

“As a trusted resident believer of ‘Akká and a longtime custodian of the House of ‘Abbúd, he was at a unique vantage point to observe ‘Abdu’l-Bahá as He dealt, neutralized and triumphed over all opposition and adversaries.” (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p.3)

Khalili narrates many violent acts from Abdu’l-Baha. In one instance a question is met not with an answer, but a slap:

One day in the birúní[outer section] of the blessed House of Haifa, He [‘Abdu’l-Bahá] stated, “I have forgotten my handkerchief.” One of the friends who was known as Ustád Muhammad-‘Alí Banná, remarked to this effect, “How is it possible for the manifestation of Truth to forget anything?” Immediately, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá slapped him and stated, “Over forgetting a handkerchief that man puts a hundred souls to test.” (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, pp. 100-101)

In another instance he states that a certain person who opposes him needs a slap. The man mysteriously dies the next day:

One of the inhabitants of ‘Akká was exhibiting great opposition. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá stated, “He needs a slap.” Next day that person died. It was said to His blessed presence, “He received his slap,” but He did not respond. (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p. 41)

In yet another incident a man asks Abdu’l-Baha for a bribe. He receives a beating instead:

Thereupon, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá sought water to perform His ablution. With the utmost deliberation, He completed His ablution and then commenced to perform the long obligatory prayer of the Muslims. During His prayer, the man kept interrupting, “This matter must <p.225> be concluded quickly, as there is little time!” Meaning that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá should end His obligatory prayer and attend to this urgent matter. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá finished His prayer, with the utmost dignity and authority He came close to him and slapped him several times, saying, “I sent it for you.” With great stress and anxiety, never having imagined such an outcome, he held his face and head, and shouting, screaming and roaring, he returned to the government office and informed his comrades of what had transpired. (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p. 116)

This story has been narrated from Abdu’l-Baha by multiple witnesses. For instance, Doctor Habib Mu’ayyad a member of the National Spiritual Assemblies of Iran and a frequent visitor of Abdu’l-Baha narrates it like this:

‘Hurry, Effendi, it is best not to delay this matter!’ I asked, ‘Which matter?’ He replied, ‘The issue of the money!’ ‘The money was sent a while ago. Why are you here?’ I told him. ‘How was it sent? By whom was it sent?’ he inquired. I said, ‘By now it has reached the Mutasarrif. Go quickly!’ He rose and began to put on his shoes; and, when he turned back towards Me, I slapped him hard and was about to slap him again, but he fled and went to the Mutasarrif who had inquired, ‘Why did it take you so long? Where is the money?’ He replied, ‘By God, I went to them, but all I received was ahard beating. Look, my face is still quite red! These people are very tough!’ (Ahang Rabbani, Eight Years Near Abdu’l-Bahā: The Diary of Dr. Habib Mu’ayyad, p. 431)

Another visitor to Abdu’l-Baha, Mirza Isa Khan, who according to Ahang Rabbani “had been a devoted Bahá’í of his time” states that after receiving the slaps, Abdu’l-Baha threw the man down from the height of the building:

I went and performed My ablutions and stood for obligatory prayer. Afterwards, I recited prayers. He was in a hurry and I was protracting [My meditations]. At the end, I said to him, “I have sent the money.” He inquired, “With whom did you send it?” I replied, “Stand up!” Then slapped him in the ear, lifted him and threw him down from the height of the building.(Ahang Rabbani, With Abdu’l-Bahá: The Diary of Mirza ‘Isa Khan Isfahani)

What is even more amazing, is the fact that Abdu’l-Baha says the following statement before narrating the aforementioned story: The Blessed Beauty has freed us from all restraints. He teaches that we must be kind to all, even to our enemies.”

Khalili narrates another story about a group of people who were harassing the Baha’is of Egypt:

During the blessed days of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, a person in Egypt was the leader of a band of men, and would provoke these men against the Bahá’ís of Egypt, and for this reason had brought about difficulties. One day that same person arrived in Haifa from Egypt. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá summoned him. After the man entered into ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s presence, He said to him, “You are causing injury to my community.” Then he was the recipient of warnings, admonishments and several slaps. After he left [the room], immediately he was summoned once more. He thought to himself that perchance the page had turned [and this time ‘Abdu’l-Bahá would be friendly to him], but it was not so since upon his entrance, one more time, the same thing occurred and ‘Abdu’l-Bahá picked up where He had left off. When this man returned to Egypt, he gave unequivocal, emphatic and decisive command to that band and emphasized, “You should not show any malice towards this community [i.e. Bahá’ís], as no one can defeat their Chief [‘Abdu’l-Bahá]; He is mostpowerful and able.” (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p. 127)

So how does Abdu’l-Baha justify his actions? Khalili continues:

One time, He [‘Abdu’l-Bahá] stated, “With some people, a thousand counsels and admonishments would not have the same effect as a slap.” (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p. 128)

Many people who commit violent acts utter similar arguments, so what advantage does Baha’ism have over other opinions and why all the commotion about Baha’is being peaceful and refraining from physical abuse? Matters don’t finish here. In fact Abdu’l-Baha had hit people in different shapes and forms innumerable times. This is what Khalili tells us directly after the previous quote:

 At all events, in different forms and taking <p.255> different shapes, many such occurrences would take place – so many that they remain unnumbered and uncountable. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, while extremely meek, was the zenith of power and grandeur. (Ahang Rabbani, A Lifetime with `Abdu’l-Bahá: Reminiscences of Khalíl Shahídí, p. 128)

Can Baha’i leaders be considered peaceful non-violent people? How can the leader of a group of people who cannot abide by his own words and the orders of his father be considered a teacher of morals and peace? Apparently, when Baha’u’llah had prohibited conflicts and striking others, he was giving orders to everyone but his own beloved son:

Ye have been forbidden in the Book of God to engage in contention and conflict, to strike another, or to commit similar acts whereby hearts and souls may be saddened. (Baha’u’llah, The Kitab-i-Aqdas, pp. 72-73)

Conflict and contention are categorically forbidden in His Book. (Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh Revealed After the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, p. 221)

How can someone who has a reputation of having slapped different people innumerable times, condemn violent acts: “In this, the cycle of Almighty God, violence and force, constraint and oppression, are one and all condemned.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Selections from the Writings of Abdu’l-Baha, p. 149)

The Quran and the Bible condemn this attitude:

Do you order the people to do good but forget about yourselves whilst you read the Book! Do you not use your reason! (Quran 2:44)

You, then, who teach others, do you not teach yourself? You who preach against stealing, do you steal? You who say that people should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? (Romans 2:21-22)

And why isn’t the true violent face of Abdu’l-Baha ever shown to those being preached about Baha’ism?

Question and Answers – Baha’i faith and Israel?

(A) Why are Baha’is forbidden to teach their faith in Israel?
Baha’i Answer : Bahaullah, founder of the Baha’i Faith, prohibited teaching the faith in Sham (the Ottoman province of Syria which includes present-day Israel and Palestinian territories) [1]. Note that this ruling was made at least 56 years before the establishment of the state of Israel.

Reality : Yeah! Right! Let’s exclude people from attaining salvation simply because they live in a specific geographical location: The vast territories called “Sham”! I can just imagine how this law was introduced: “I Baha’u’llah, have brought a new religion from God but but but (stutters) God told me no one is allowed to teach the faith to those leaving in SHAM.” Funny that Baha’is think this excuse is justified for Israel while they call the actions of the Iranian government for implementing the exact same rule but within its own borders persecution. Pure hypocrisy at its finest.
In case you didn’t realize in my response, I said nothing about SHAM. I said Israel. The current ruling states Baha’is can have no activities in ISRAEL, not SHAM. ISRAEL is not SHAM. In case you didn’t know Baha’is are merrily living in and teaching their beliefs in SHAM: ….

Question :

(B) Why are there no Baha’i community in Israel? Baha’i Answer : With the onset of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the Baha’i community of Palestine left the region to avoid becoming involved in the political dispute.

Reality : Meaningless argument. Baha’is claim they do not involve themselves in politics in any manner. Stating that they left Israel “to avoid becoming involved in the political dispute” is pure baloney. Baha’i live in many many regions with grave political situations but they never leave those places. Do Baha’is take us for fools when they put forward these lame excuses?

Question :

(C) Do you know what Local Spiritual Assemblies do?
Baha’i Answer : They register marriages and divorces, organize devotionals (that is when they meet in each other’s homes to pray), etc. None of this warrants persecution.

Reality : Baha’is are not being persecuted or prosecuted for any of that. As I said Baha’is are free to practice their own beliefs within themselves. Get married according to their own customs, divorced, pray and… as long as they don’t proselytize in Iran. That is the law in Iran. Disobey it and you will be PROsecuted like all laws in all countries.

You forgot to mention that Local Spiritual Assemblies are part of the Baha’i dictatorship hierarchy, they take orders from the next level in rank and convey it to the adherents. e.g. so and so Baha’i dude is now considered a covenant breaker and no one in the community including his parents, spouse, children can speak with him and must all shun him. The LSA also gathers intelligence from those in the community and threatens dissidents and those that dare to question the rulings of the dictatorship order. You didn’t know all this or you simply ignored it?

Question :

A Baha’i pretending to be a Shiite claims : All religions have some sort of organization and hierarchy. Living in Canada, as a Shia, I am blessed to live near Shia mosques, community centers, and even a Shia highschool! All thanks to freedom of religion. And yet, we turn a blind eye to what happens in the only Shia country in the world. We forget that they too (eg, Baha’is, Buddhists, Hindus) should also have freedom of religion. Truth will ultimately prevail so why does the Iranian government resort to closing down Baha’i business and debar Baha’is from universities?

Answer : No religion has a hierarchy and organization like that of Baha’ism. The UHJ is a pure dictatorship. They decide if you can be considered a Baha’i or not, they decide who you can or cannot socialize and speak with, they decide where you can or cannot travel to, they even decide what portions of there scripture can be translated or distributed… disobey and you will be punished big time. In its organized form it is a government within a government. No country will tolerate such behavior. If your going to practice your beliefs in this manner you’re gonna need a legal Permit from the government and well, they don’t have that permit in Iran. They have the freedom to practice their beliefs individually but organizational and proselytization is a big no no, just like in Israel.

Did you know Baha’is believe non-Baha’i schools are: death incarnate, a cause of stagnation, abatement and humiliation? No, well read this:

That is all the stuff they never tell you about. If any organization or faith system with such sick beliefs wanted to erect a school where I live then rest assured that I would be the first person to oppose its establishment and propagation of its beliefs. But they are free to practice their beliefs among themselves, no one would care less let, even the Iranian government.

Why Baha’is are persecuted in Iran and some other countries ?

It is actually PROsecution not PERsecution.

Putting aside all the propaganda and exaggeration that Baha’is spread about what happens to them or how they are treated in Iran; the answer to this question is very simple.

Baha’ism is not a simple religious entity where you keep your beliefs to yourselves. It is an ORGANIZATION where the adherents are required by their beliefs to participate in all matters of the cult in an organized matter taking orders in a hierarchical form from the highest in rank, the Universal House of Justice, down to the Local Spiritual Assemblies.

Any organization, and I repeat any organization in any country, must first obtain the necessary legal approvals in accordance with that country’s laws for it to be able to start its activities. Baha’is have received no approvals whatsoever and their organizational activities are all illegal in Iran. When they are busted by the authorities for their illegal activities they go around claiming that they are being PERSECUTED FOR THEIR BELIEFS while in reality it is LEGAL PROSECUTION.

Funny thing is, the Israeli government does not allow them to have any activities in Israel and Baha’is happily oblige and never protest. Their persecution in Israel is so harsh that they are not even allowed to live in Israel (only allowed a short few day visit to visit their holy sites, and only IF the Universal House of Justice allows them), yet they never ever protest to this. This hypocritical behavior makes matters even worse for them in Iran because they are obviously making themselves a tool of the western governments against Iran by this attitude.

Abdul Baha Wouldn’t Bathe for Months at a Time. How Baha’is Suppressed this Fact!

‘Abdu’l Baha laughing at those taking bath in Turkish Hammam. Picture only for representation purpose.
Baha’u’llah has enjoined upon his followers to bathe once a week:
“It hath been enjoined upon you to pare your nails, to bathe yourselves each week in water that covereth your bodies, and to clean yourselves with whatsoever ye have formerly employed. Take heed lest through negligence ye fail to observe that which hath been prescribed unto you by Him Who is the Incomparable, the Gracious.”
According to Baha’i scripture, Abdu’l-Baha wouldn’t bathe for months at a time. This act going against his father’s orders, has been censored and supressed in published works of Baha’is or simply distorted in the translation of Baha’i works into English. We will present here two such documents.
The first document is a distorted translation in the book Mahmud’s Diary:
“One of the servants asked why man is not thankful when in comfort. `Abdu’l-Bahá replied, `It is due to negligence. Otherwise one must be aware and thankful when immersed in the sea of bounties.’ Then He said, `I have not had a good bath for several months.’ The ship’s attendant was then asked to prepare a warm fresh water bath for Him. Afterwards, He said, `I am much better now. For a long time I have not had leisure to take a real bath.’” (Mahmud Zaraqani, translated by Mohi Sobhani, Mahmúd’s Diary: The Diary of Mírzá Mahmúd-i-Zarqání Chronicling `Abdu’l-Bahá’s Journey to America, p. 15,
Pay attention to the two words “good” and “real”. These adjectives do not exist in the original Persian text of Mahmud’s diary. Abdu’l-Baha clearly states that he has not had a bath for several months and that he has not had leisure to take a bath for a long time. Two seemingly innocent words (‘good’ and ‘real’) have been added to this statement to hide the fact that Abdu’l-Baha had not taken a bath for a long time. This is the original Persian text for comparison:
«چند ماه است حمام نرفته ام. لهذا بملازم جهاز سپرده شد که حمام حاضر نموده قدری آب گرم شیرین نیز مهیا کرد. پس از حمام فرمودند خیلی راحت شدم. مدتی بود فرصت حمام نمی نمودم.» (محمود زرقانی، بدایع الآثار، ج1، ص 10)
The second suppressed document is in Persian and has not been translated to English but is available on the official Baha’i library here: The prominent Baha’i scholar, Ishraq Khavari, mentions the following statement from Abdu’l-Baha at the bottom of the page:
«ای دو یار عزیز هیچ می دانید که عبدالبهاء غرق چه دریایی است .. حال مصمم حرکت به فرنگستانم که شاید خدمتی بآستان نمایم.» (اشراق خاوری، مائده آسمانی، ج2، ص 83)
“Oh two dear friends, do you know in what sea Abdu’l-Baha is sinking .. now I am determined on journeying to the West so that I may perform service to [Baha’u’llah’s] court.” (Ishraq Khawari, Maidiyih Asimani, vol 2, p. 83)
As you can see in the image, a section from this tablet has been replaced with “..” After some serious digging, we finally found the original tablet in its uncensored form on page 162 of the 17th volume of the Iranian National Baha’i Archives ( ). An image from this tablet is provided below with the censored section marked in red:
This is what the original version reads:
«ای دو یار عزیز هیچ می دانید که عبدالبهاء غرق چه دریایی است قسم به اسم اعظم روحی لعتبه الفداء که یکسال است یکدفعه فرصت یافتم که به حمام بروم دیگر ملاحظه نمایید که چه اوضاعیست حال مصمم حرکت به فرنگستانم که شاید خدمتی بآستان نمایم.»
Oh two dear friends, do you know in what sea Abdu’l-Baha is sinking. I swear by the greatest name, may my soul be sacrificed for his shrine, that it is [now] one year that I have only had time to bathe once. See what a situation we have. Now I am determined on journeying to the West so that I may perform service to [Baha’u’llah’s] court. (Abdu’l-Baha, Iranian National Baha’i Archives [INBA], vol. 17, p. 162)
Abdu’l-Baha confesses that he hadn’t bathed for one year! It is totally understandable why the UHJ would want to censor this statement.


Baha’is stabbed Rafsanjani’s daughter in the back

Baha’i Faith and Hypocrisy are two faces of the same coin. If benefits are due, the Baha’is will deceive the friends and foes alike.

Recently the betrayal by the Baha’is was done to Ms. Faezeh Hashemi, the daughter of Ex-president of Iran Mr. Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Who made a courtesy visit to temporarily paroled Baha’i leader Fariba Kamalabadi, with whom she apparently shared a prison cell in 2009. Fariba Kamalabadi, along with six other Baha’i colleagues of the seven-men ad-hoc Iranian Baha’i administration known as the Yaran, was tried on charges of espionage and spying for Israel, found guilty and sentenced to ten years imprisonment.

The whole episode was stage managed by Universal House of Justice. Faezah Hashemi was made to seat with a group of Baha’i women all unveiled with a picture of Abbas Effendi Abdu’l-Baha prominently displayed on the wall to the left of the assembled party. Although the visit of Ms. Hashemi was on humanitarian ground, the Baha’i Administration showed as if she being nearer to the Faith and due to this Iran is Losing Battle against the Baha’is. This is nothing but betrayal by deception.

The Baha’i Administration blew this incidence out of proportion through their international contacts. The UHJ sent Messages to National Assemblies to publicize the incidence. This forced the Ex-President to denounce her visit and reprimand saying ‘she had made a big mistake that had to be rectified.’ The Ex-President described the Baha’i faith as “a deviant sect”, which “he disavows and have always done”.

Baha’is are master of betrayal. By this way they created a rift between a father and daughter and tarnished her image amongst her own countrymen. At the same time they put the position of Mrs. Kamalabadi under severe pressure restricting the possibility of her any further release in future.
