Ayatollah Abdul-Hamid Masumi Tehrani, who recently made headlines worldwide due to his sympathy for the Baha’is of Iran, has been summoned to Iran’s special clerical court. According to the HRANA – the news organ of the Human Rights Activists’ News Agency in Iran – Ayatollah Abdul-Hamid Masumi Tehrani showed his solidarity with the Baha’is of the world in April 2014, by presenting them with a work of illuminated calligraphy. This Shia religious reformer has been summoned to appear at Branch 1 of the special clerical court on June 1st. The summons stated the reason was “complaints against him”.

Well now, that’s a big surprise! Kudos to this brave and compassionate man for knowing his own life was on the line but standing up for his oppressed fellow-citizens anyway. May God bless and protect him and may all the people of Iran gain true freedom by having the courage and insight to follow in this wise man’s footsteps.

Only TRUE, learned, spiritual Muslim scholars would follow in the footsteps of Ayatollah Abdul-Hamid Masumi Tehrani. All others are just fake mullahs looking for money and power at the expense of 90% of the population. These fake mullahs and clergy tarnish the good name of Islam. They will pay dearly for their sins in the next world if not here. Same goes for all other fake clergy around the world, whatever their religion, whose priority is money, power, and self interest in the name of God.
