The petition can be found here :

It is pretty immature on the part of 86 Indians Petition to the
Iranian Government for Immediate Release of the staff and faculty of
the Bahá'í Institute of Higher Education.. As most of these eminent
personalities are highly educated – some even authorities on law – it
would have been appropriate that they should have verified the facts
before making a petition. Has anyone of these personalities checked
with the Government of Iran? Are petitions to be signed purely on
single side of the story? On whose influence are signatures taken? Do
these personalities know that the Government of India cannot support a
resolution which is country specific?

This was none of the business of so called imminent citizen to issue
an petition .If they were so concerned about the Release of the staff
and faculty of the Bahá'í Institute of Higher Education, they would
have just conveyed their concerned to the government of India and not
breaking into pens or shouting from roof tops. The shrewd Baha’is have
used these imminent citizens of India.

Now let us see the facts!
1. The Baha’i community has repeatedly been convicted in several
sensitive countries of carrying espionage activities. The Baha’is have
been under scanner for violating law of the land in several countries
for carrying out religious conversions by deception. It seems the
Baha'i administration is interested in having "martyrs" for its cause
in different countries rather than to see their own people save their

2. Baha’is involved in espionage in India
Why, even in India there are cases filed against the Baha’i faith
members for possessing fraudulent documents and carrying out espionage
activities and for supplying classified defense documents to Iranian
and Israeli spying agencies in return making huge amount of foreign
currency. (Refer Hindustan Times 13th July 2006 New Delhi Edition,)

3. BAHA’I Administration with all modern techniques involved in
conversion of Simple Indians.
Recently Universal House of Justice, the apex organization of the
Baha’i Faith in a new encyclical has issued a call to Baha’is to go
out and actively convert Indians. In this era of globalization, Baha’i
administration with unlimited funds use sophisticated, deceptive
techniques to lure, brainwash and convert innocent people.

They forcefully convert Hindus by inducement and deception. Many poor
illiterate tribal people in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh were
deceptively converted into Baha’i Faith, although anti-conversion law
is passed in 11 of the states in India. This will have a disastrous
effect on India's political, cultural and social fabric.

For centuries Indians have been forcefully converted into other
religions. Religious conversion has profoundly affected our cultural
legacy by the after-effects of genocidal coercive religious
conversion. It has left its wounding imprint on our individual psyches
and our collective consciousness.

Although coercive religious conversion of Hindus in India and abroad
has deep historical roots, recent deceptive religious conversion
techniques used by Baha’i movement pose serious political, social,
ethical and psychological problems.

3. Baha’i Teaching Institutes involved in deceptive conversions
On 3rd March 2011, the locals of Wai district in Panchgani caught the
Baha’is red handed indulging in conversion activities. The Baha’is
arrived in a Mini Bus to propagate Baha’i religion to the local people
in Wai. The Baha’is were taken to the police station where Baha’i
officials said that "we were conducting practicals for these
students". They were told that why the students can’t go to different
schools and get their practical training.

The students confessed that they were going to villages for conduction
of Baha’i religious classes for children and youths and they were told
by their teachers that their course will be completed only when they
do these activities. The teacher warned them to be ‘TACTFUL’ while
propagating the Baha’i religion.

On seeing the Baha’i books it became clear for the Police that it was
a conversion class. As the 'Ruhi Book' that they were having,
contained Baha'i religious material and chapters such as

The Police officials reprimanded Baha’is of their hypocritical
behavior and warned them not to teach Baha’i Faith to the students/
staff of NETTC as well as locals of Wai and Panchgani.

On further inquiry it was revealed by the staff, that

There are numerous complaints against all the three institutes of
Baha’is namely:

• New Era School and Junior college
• New Era Baha'i Academy

The conversion activities going on in these institutes are in the name
of Children Moral Classes, Youth Classes etc. In fact some of the
staff of these institutes have given a written complaint to the
government authorities that these institutes demands 'Conversion' in
return of confirmation and promotion in these institutes. Therefore
some of the staff just to gain the facilities provided by these
institutes like good salary, food, boarding and lodging have
apparently accepted the Baha’i Faith, but in actuality they practice
their ancestral Religion.

The heads of all the three Baha’i institutions are Iranians who have
hired local Indians to go to the villages, schools, colleges and
universities to teach Baha’i Training courses which are nothing but
purely 'Baha’i Religious Teachings'. Some of these people are well
versed in local languages so they cunningly escape the authority

The staff further gave information that sometimes they have to conduct
'Ruhi Classes' for all the students of the class. The students are
least interested in these courses but the staff and students have to
do it compulsorily for hours and hours together. These courses have
hidden agenda of teaching of Baha’i religious passages. The students
are supposed to memorize long Baha’i prayers and quotations in order
to enrich themselves with Baha’i Teaching and culture.

Even the tiny tots are not spared from Baha’i teachings. They too have
to undergo various Baha’i children courses designed for them, that are
based on Ruhi books.

One of the senior staff who has retired from the school and now taken
another assignment in one school elaborated the whole teaching process
of the Baha’is. He said that Baha’i Faith has no acceptability in the
society. Baha’i Faith has nothing new to offer to the society although
they claim that they have solutions for all the problems, but first
the people should accept Baha’i Faith. In fact Baha’i teachings have
been copied from other religions. Therefore in order to spread the
Baha’i teachings, the Baha’i Administration emphasizes on
establishment of Schools and considers the children as best and
fruitful targets.

Some of the parents have seriously objected to Baha’is proselytizing
going on in these Baha’i Institutions. But then they have limitations
to change the schools at this stage.

It has been the habit of the Baha’is to have active public relations
and persuade high ranking government officials and eminent
personalities in every country to speak for them. Why do the Baha’is
never speak of the huge injustice and oppression being meted out to
fellow Indian citizens in different parts of world? Are Indian
Baha’is, first Baha’is and then Indians?
It is not the first time that the 86 Indian have fallen into the trap
of cunning Baha’is. Earlier in 2010 there were 31 eminent Indians who
were taken by the Baha’is for a ride. In the Issue of 7 Baha’i
prisoners in Iran. This point to a very strong Baha’i network
operating in India.

In India from Sorabjees to Mistrys, from Corporators to Member of
Parliaments and from State Minister to Cabinet Ministers are being
contacted to bring pressure on Iran as if the Government of India has
nothing else to do except protect the Baha’is. Inspite of these
efforts the Baha’is do not lack behind in claiming that we do not
interfere in politics.

Unfortunately, the petition by eminent Indian citizens has served the
following purpose for the Baha’is

1. Propgation of Baha’i Faith in India
2. Defamation of Iranian Government
3. Attempt to sabotage the good and cordial relation between India and

I earnestly request Indian politicians and bureaucrats not to succumb
to Baha’is charming persuasion and verify facts and evaluate long term
repercussions before taking-up a stand.
