Iranian Quran News Agency (IQNA) reports on Tuesday, July 28, 2009, in Persian:

A representative of a religious seminary in the province of Fars states that the first round of critical studies of religions and sects has commenced in Kazerun.  These sessions are intended to introduce the masses of people, particularly youth, to various religions.

    Whatever the Qomans do fails. All the Moslims in the world know that Qomans and their Ayas are outcasts from Islam and are not considered Moslims as they resort to terrorism and torture as forever recorded on Youtube and made available to all the peoples of the world, instead of following in the foot steps of the Prophet who preached tolerance and peace. The Qomans last stand was made in the streets of Tehran. 300 Qomans who have been running Iran into the abyss will never be able to defeat 70 million Persians and rewrite the history in their favor specially in Kazerun. The world saw these Qomans in action and the world is finaly turning their backs on the Qomans. Even those who believed writing letters to Qomans can reform them should be realizing by now that Qoman soap opera on the Qoman channel is nothing but a cover for the work being done by the 300 Qomans on the nuke channel that is continuing full speed and commercial free.

    Interesting information. I found Kaserun on google maps. What a pity for iran that it leaders have nothing to do save promoting mischiefmaking. Continuing so the remains of the city will be like those of the sasanid period : deserted.

    This only shows how really afraid these cowards are of the Truth of Baha’u’llah.

    Another exampe: the Hojjatieyeh society holds a 3 year course, the entire first year is spent on studying and refuting the Kitab-i-Iqan (by Baha’u’llah). The 2 books that the Shi’ihs of Iran are most afraid of are the Kitab-i-Iqan and the Kitab-i-Fara’id. Kitab-i-Fara’id is by Mirza Abul Fadl and was written in response to the Shaykhul Islam of Taflis, who wrote a refutation of the Kitab-i-Iqan soon after Baha’u’llah wrote it.

    There is no difference between these distorters of Islam and those who denied both Jesus Christ and the Prophet Muhammad.

    Before I can consider the training in Kazerun anti-Baha’i I would need more information. The piece above does not explicitly state the critical studies are opposed to any of the groups that will be studied. It seems to me that a leap has been made. Please provide more information.

    Dear RN,
    One has to be totally unaware of the IRI’s stance vis-a-vis Baha’is to be able to think that they really send “scholars” trained in Qum to Kazerun to do real research and investigation on a religion whose followers are being fiercely persecuted. Did you know than in pre-WWII Germany, when already much anti-Jewish activities were going on, there was an institution for the “study” of Judaism? Do you really think in a world that tolerance is a praised value, IRI would blatantly announce it would send trained teachers to small localities to combat and refute Baha’is?

    Mullah’s aren’t as stuppid as people think they are. They’ve read the history books better than most did.Many have also read Baha’i books and know better than some Bahai’s themselves. All they need to do is to google the word Bahai and realize a religion little more than a century old, so universal and peaceful, so modern with its original principles being established one after another in global scale and has converts from any religious or racila background in the world, more worldwide spread 2nd to only Christianity which had over 1 million followers in less than 1/2 of century of its origination and now is ranked after Jewish opoulation wise with teachings more related to Shi’at religion more than any other religion and so on and so on.
    A new religion from Persia and now influencing millions worldwide, not only moslim Iranians, but also Jewish, Christian and Zorostrian Iranians have converted … Now Imagine a supressed nation that dont trust Islamic rules and rulers anymore.
