More attacks on the Baha’i Faith

Fars News Agency interviewed Mr Hedayat’ullah Behboudi –the editor of the quarterly magazine published by the Political Study and Research Institute (PSRI) about the series of recent publication against Baha’i Faith in Iran. Mr Behboudi clearly stated that the Political Study and Research Institute will continue to publish articles and information about the Baha’i Faith and Baha’is in Iran. However, all of their previous publications have been found to be both untrue and misleading. The Fars News Agency interviewer indicated that all these materials had been prepared with very limited or little to no reference to Baha’i resources. As matter of fact, the majority of articles were prepared using books and/or articles that were written by individuals who had resigned from the Baha’i Faith and were criticising the Baha’i Faith.

The activities of the Political Study and Research Institute are very distressing. By presenting fallacies about the Baha’i Faith they are doing a great injustice to their readers. They continue to breed ignorance that intensifies the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran.

It is heartwarming to see your blog in defense of the largest and most persecuted religious minority in Iran. Turning on the light will hopefully diminish the despicable acts committed in the Name if Islam in Iran.

Your blog with its focus on Iranian Baha'is adds to The Muslim Network for Baha'i Rights and the Baha'i Faith in Egypt blogs in defense of the Baha'i Faith and its persecuted followers in some of the Islamic countries.

Governments that systematically violate the human rights of its citizens in the name of Islam are committing crimes against humanity and against the good name of Islam.

Dear Nabil, I really appreciate your encouraging comments. It is a shame that the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and some other Islamic governments like Egypt persecuting Baha’is under the banner of Islam. It has been proven that Baha’is are contributing immensely towards the welfare of and the advancement of communities where they are living in, but sadly some Islamic governments are denying their basic rights.
