The Baha’i faith as it stands today faces a challenge of becoming
irrelevant to the sayings of Baha’u’llah and Abdul Baha. Having failed
to attract converts and not getting acceptance from the world society,
the Baha’i Faith today is trying to serve itself as a religion in
terms of writing OPEN LETTERS (as against Holy writings!!) that have
no bearing whatsoever on the targeted people.

Very recently we heard about a petition made by 31 Imminent Indians to
the Government of Iran, on another occasion we heard that Baha’is
wrote an irrelevant letter to the people of Egypt.

There was again an ‘Open letter’ in the Wall Street Journal
republished Dr. Kishan Manocha, Director of the Office of External
Affairs of the Bahá’í community of the UK. The document, dated 7th
December and addressed to Ayatollah Mohammad Sadeq Larijani, stating
the injustices meted out to Iranian Baha’is. Many more open letters
must be in the pipe line.

These open letters afford Baha’is opportunity to be in touch with
Media, non-governmental organizations, various government officials
and prominent individuals.

Although The Guardian of the Baha’i Faith has forbidden Baha’is to
take part in any such campaign, which is political in character, the
present Baha’is have resorted to this as a last measure. Extract of
the Guardians advice is indicated below:

“The Baháís should refrain from signing petitions designed to bring
pressure on the Government which may have any political character
whatsoever. There are so many other people who can carry on
progressive types of activity, but only the Baháís can do the work of
(Shoghi Effendi, dated March 19, 1946, in The Unfolding Destiny of the
British Baháí
Community, p. 44)

The Baha’is know it very well that these reactions will harm the
Baha’is in Iran but the fact is that the UHJ wants MARTYRS IN IRAN so
that they can shout BLOOD, BLOOD, BLOOD, Money, Money, Money.

The Baha’is of World have done nothing to help their fellow Baha’is
inside or outside of the Iran. They have been content to benefit
economically and extract cheap propaganda for themselves. The Baha’is
are an inward-looking community which can sacrifice its own people for
monetary gains.

We see so much injustice and oppression prevailing in the world, and
thousands are
dying, but the only thing that comes to the mind of Baha’is is
perceived threat, violence to themselves. No mention is made of the
fact that Jews, Christians and Muslims have been threatened or
attacked. The Baha’is seem to judge the justice of a regime according
to how well it treats the Baha’is. An unjust regime treating the
Baha’is well is tolerated or even extolled, while a popular regime
which deprives Baha’is of certain freedom (perhaps along with other
religious groups) is regarded as evil.

When UHJ was approached to give a statement on ‘Iraq invasion’ it said
that we follow the policy of non-involvement in politics. This ‘non
involvement’ tag on Baha’is are ‘get-out passes’ from just about

Needless to say, the Baha’is are gradually gaining a reputation for
hypocrisy and self-interestedness.

The world of Internet has exposed the Baha’i Community that has a
deliberate agenda of using education / educational institutions /
educational programmes to promote their activities and their faith.

The Baha’is also have a deliberate policy of targeting prominent
people, including teachers and other educationalists – all influential
strata of society. Issues of common concerns are used to attract these
strata but without making apparent it is the Baha’i Faith propagation
that gets priority. Crowds are drawn in the names of these prominent
personalities but intentions are different.

Look at how events are twisted to know the true character of the
Baha’is. Baha’is were caught teaching Baha’i Faith to the children in
IRAN, which is an illegal activity in Iran. Instead of humbly
accepting their mistake, the Baha’is said they were teaching the
underprivileged children (knowing Baha’i nature this can only be far
from truth!!!). Baha’is indulge in such ‘social’ activities (read
‘anti-social’) for influencing the children of other community not
only related to Iran but in many countries where such activities are
not seen appropriate. A question arises in ones mind – is need of
education in Baha’i community totally established that they have to
educate only other communities?

In Uzbekistan, during a police raid, the Baha’is were caught
proselytizing the children as young as 10 years about Baha’i Faith. On
being questioned, if they had the consent of the parents, they said,
”we were having Tea together and for having a cup of tea neither the
consent of parents nor any authority is required”. Have you heard ten
year olds having tea with matured men? Needless to say the Baha’is
were immediately deported out of Uzbekistan. Refer
for details.

In India they said, “We are creating Promoters of the Community Well
being”. When the Baha’is were taken to the police station, Baha’i
officials said that “we were conducting practicals for these
students”. They were told that schools were better places for the
students to get their practical training. On further questioning, 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 had also 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 "UNDERSTANDING THE BAHA'I WRITINGS." (Refer for details)

In Indonesia the Bahá'ís were arrested and prosecuted under the Law of
Child Protection (23-2002) trying to convert children of other faith
as young as 9 to 10 years. The Police found that there is very
compelling evidence for the crime and violation of law of land. The
Indonesian Government requires that Religious groups and social
organizations must obtain permits to hold religious concerts or other
public events. Permits usually are granted in an unbiased manner;
unless there is concern that the activity could anger members of
another faith who live in the area. Baha’is had once again violated
the code of conduct (refer for

In 2008 in Yemen four Baha’is, Mr. Zia'u'llah Pourahmari, Mr. Keyvan
Qadari, Mr. Behrooz Rohani. and Mr. Sayfi Ibrahim Sayfi, were arrested
and deported on charges of “proselytizing” in a manner against Yemeni

Reports are also there that the Christian priests have warned the
Baha’is, in no uncertain terms, that they should conduct the Ruhi book
courses only with Baha’i children and not with non Baha’i children.

With such frustrating experiences the Faith has no option but to gain
sympathy from world by writing ‘Open Letters’. The world has now seen
the true face of Baha’is and can no longer be deceived. History has
never seen such deception ever. The Baha’is should spend rest of the
time left for the Faith and reflect on validity of their Faith and the
hoax care-takers of the Faith (the Universal House of Justice).
Reality will not be hidden then. In the interest of humanity this is a
