UK Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt reiterates the government’s concerns about the ongoing detention of the seven Baha’i leaders in Iran. “I again urge the Iranian Government to cease its harassment of the Baha’i minority, and to respect the rights of the many members of minority groups who continue to face arrest and lengthy prison sentences, often on vaguely worded charges of acting against national security.(15 July 2010)

    There is a pandemic swiping the world. It is based on the selective use of “holy texts” in order to satiate personal prejudices and to advance the corrupt and fanatical idols which certain imaginations have devised. Such people, having ignored the holy teachings on love and tolerance have only condemned themselves. They imagine themselves of the patriotic and religious, when in fact God is ashamed of them. They will assuredly fail in their attempts to thwart the spread of the realization, throughout the world, of the oneness of God, His various religions, and the oneness of the human family. God has prepared a place for the stone hearted, those who hate and persecute the innocent.
    Ours is to endure patiently, to return love for hate, to pray and to trust all to God.
