    Dear friends,
    It is high time the Muslims are waging a war on Allah when they killed innocent human beings. Whoever kills God’s children kills Allah too. The Shiah kill the Sunnis and the Sunnis killed the Shiah. Baha’is do not belong to neither of this. They believe in Allah or God and therefore stop killing any God’s children because of your ignorance or animal nature but claim to be holy.
    Everybody who disobeys Allah’s Law will pay either in this world or in the next.
