Here is a picture of a book stand in front of a mosque in Iran. The green banner on the left announces the availability of different books for the recognition of the devious Baha’i sect.
This is the sort of thing that Baha’is in Iran have to put up with. A massive, fullscale propaganda machine which aims to distort the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and to poison people’s minds about it. Unfortunately, for the Mullahs, very few people bother to actually buy this crap and fewer still read and believe such hogwash.
Still, the picture gives you a glimpse into the nature of the Iranian regime. With their full financial support such books and materials are made widely available and are even used to indoctrinate impressionable youth in public schools.
The banner to the right reads: “Peace upon the Mehdi, the rejuvenator of pure Islam”. Which isn’t surprising when you realize that right now the small minority that rules Iran are members of the Hojjatieh Society. They are awaiting the imminent arrival of the Hidden Imam (Mehdi) and as you would expect, do not look too kindly on anyone who claims that He has already come. It isn’t just coincidence that the two banners are side by side.
Thankfully, the vast majority of Iranian citizens have one or more Baha’i acquaintances or friends (if not outright family members) and reject such propaganda along with the rest of the crap the government tries to force feed its population. The attitude of the average Iranian towards the Baha’i Faith and any other religion is to live and let live. They are sick and tired of being forced to abide by the Muslim faith and believe that when it comes to religion, the best model is one where – while respecting the rights of others – everyone is free to worship what and how they want.
Sadly the average Iranian is not in charge of the Iranian government.
