Editor’s Note: Rasa News is a mouthpiece of fanaticism and deception against the Baha’is of Iran, and it would be a source of much entertainment if it weren’t so tragic. This latest news is true, though it sounds absurd. It reports on last Friday’s sermon (March 6, 2009) by the Imam Jum’ih of Zanjan. What the good Imam said though is a different matter. Judge for yourself.
According to Rasa’s reporter in Zanjan, Hojjato’l-Islam Muhammad-Taqi Va’izi stated in this week’s Friday Sermon, “The leaders of the Wahhabi [the ultra-conservative Saudi version of Islam] and Baha’i sects solely because of their worldliness resist obedience to logic and the Qur’an.”
He noted, “These wayward sects are the highway thieves of the path of humanity, and they have prevented those peoples from becoming acquainted with the true Islam and Qur’an.” …
Hojjato’l-Islam Va’izi, emphasizing the need to prevent the influence and propagation of the Baha’i and Wahhabi sects in the nation, stated, “The underground activities of these sects not only harm the country, but they also prevent the unity of Muslims.”
The Imam Jum’ih of Zanjan said, “The human rights organizations of the world have wrapped Western-style living in attractive covers so that the bitterness of their true lives might appear nicer in happier packaging.”
