Anti-Baha’i Methodology


Editor’s Note: In our continual effort to acquaint our readers with the calamity that is the mindset of Iran’s ruling clerical establishment, Iran Press Watch wishes to provide a translation of the following report published on March 5, 2009, by the Cultural Department of Rasa News Agency. It is interesting to note the extent to which this so-called “expert” is uninformed on simple, basic aspects of the Baha’i Faith.

In an interview with the report of Rasa, Hojjatu’l-Islam Sajadi, an expert in Baha’ism, stated, “Baha’ism is an organized movement, and requires a modern and organized system to confront it.”

He added, “In confronting this sect, one must properly assess its establishment and various factors protecting it, so that a final solution may be attained.”

This expert in Baha’ism emphasized, “Our problem in combating Baha’ism is not internal [to Iran], since 200 National Assemblies are functioning in the world in such countries as Malaysia, the Caucasus, Azerbaijan, European countries and even the United States.”

Hojjato’l-Islam Sajadi commented, “We must proceed with a long-term plan, in which everyone’s responsibility is clearly delineated, so that we can properly confront this movement [i.e. the Baha’i Faith].”

He further stressed, “Based on studying and evaluating two hundred sects in this country, both traditional and modern ones, I have concluded that the most dangerous movement that directly relates to the principles of our beliefs and thoughts is Baha’ism.”

Hojjato’l-Islam Sajadi admitted, “We are late in reacting to the activities of the Baha’i movement. However, on the other hand, we do not need extensive programs to confront a 180,000-person movement [in Iran].”

This expert in Baha’ism reminded us, “If members of the Baha’i sect do not participate in about half of the meetings of this faction, they would be pursued [i.e. sanctioned] by the movement.” [This is completely untrue — editor]

He added moreover, “In Baha’ism, severe consequences, such as termination of administrative involvement or spiritual expulsion [i.e. Covenant-breaking status], or even confiscation of one’s properties, awaits a person who is sanctioned. For this reason, those who intend to repent do not have the courage to return.” [The first is possible for those who repeatedly and flagrantly violate Baha’i law; the second is extremely rare; the third is completely untrue — editor]

    Just to clarify something you have written about expulsion from the Baha’i Faith:

    You mention that it is “extremely rare,” but that comment alone does not properly convey the exceptional nature of that sanction.

    Expulsion from the faith it is not only rare. It is, in fact, resorted to only as a last resort in the sole case of a Baha’i individual who deliberately attempts to destroy the unity of the Baha’i Faith for the purpose of advancing their own prospects for leadership and self-aggrandizement.

    Expulsion, therefore, is a safeguard against extreme cases of self-seeking ambition among those who wish to establish their own personal leadership in the community. It is not merely an extremely rare penalty.

    Mollahs are their own worst enemies. God gave them the opportunity to prove themselves as productive members of the human race. And what is the first thing they do? Kill Baha’is and burn down their houses down. Then stone their own Moslim population to death, hang them from construction cranes to die, chopp off their hands and feet, pour acid on the faces of women who don’t want to be enslaved, setup torture and rape camps, destroy old cemetaries and set the bones of the dead on fire, turn universities into cemetaries, torture 600,000 Iranians, kill 1,000,000 in their Shia/Sunni war and now that everything is crumbeling around them because of their own stupidity, they plan on going back to step one and kill Baha’is. These Gorg and Magorgs don’t get it that it is oltheir own backwardness and lack of spiritual value that has led them down this path of self destruction where they have no one to blame but themselves. No one told them to behave like savages. Had they any respect foe Iranian culture or valued themselves, they would have implemented
    Cyrus the Great’s Bill of Rights in Iran guaranteeing success for themselves instead of utter failure where they have to resort to using Baha’is as scapegoats so as to hold on to what little earthly power they have remaining.

    If killing people would have made their throne secure, surely killing tens of thousands of innocent Baha’is would have guaranteed them the peace and prosperity they seek.

    Like locusts they desensded on Iran, raped and pillaged the nation and fashioned it in their own image. That’s how history will remember these wolves and wolverines. These gorgs and magorgs. Gogs and Magogs. The people who were given Pardisia by God to remedy themselves, yet chose to turn it into hell and then rose against the God of gods. May God show mercy on their departed souls as they are greeted by the souls of the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iranians of all faiths and ethnic groups that they have killed in the past 30 years.
    killed in the Islamic hell by Mollahs.

    … “Will ye slay a man because he says, ‘My Lord is Allah’?- when he has indeed come to you with Clear (Signs) from your Lord? and if he be a liar, on him is (the sin of) his lie: but, if he is telling the Truth, then will fall on you something of the (calamity) of which he warns you: Truly Allah guides not one who transgresses and lies! [40:28]
    O ye who believe! If a wicked person comes to you with any news, ascertain the truth, lest ye harm people unwittingly, and afterwards become full of repentance for what ye have done.HOLY CORAN [49:6]

    O My God! Thou art the All-Bountiful, Whose grace is infinite. Withhold not Thy servants from the most mighty Ocean, which Thou hast made the repository of the pearls of Thy knowledge and Thy wisdom, and turn them not away from Thy gate, which Thou hast opened wide before all who are in Thy heaven and all who are on Thy earth. O Lord! Leave them not to themselves, for they understand not and flee from that which is better for them than all that Thou hast created upon Thine earth.

    Cast upon them, O My God, the glances of the eye of Thy favour and bounty, and deliver them from self and passion, that they may draw nigh unto Thy most exalted Horizon, taste the sweetness of Thy remembrance, and delight in that bread which Thou hast sent down from the heaven of Thy Will and the firmament of Thy grace. From everlasting Thy bounty hath embraced the entire creation and Thy mercy hath surpassed all things.

    No God is there but Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Compassionate.

    It is very evident that those who were considered as the protector of rights of weak people and symbol of faith have become the transgressors themselves and have become as hollow trunks. May GOD, the Merciful give them opportunity to fix their mistakes and also provide them a chance to be HIS servant and uplift HIS cause. GOD’s wrath is fierce. May HIS mercy shield us and keep us from being misguided.
