Five years of injustice: The plight of seven Baha’i leaders in Iran

  • WendyS9

    Such a sad situation for such innocent people. What possesses supposedly religious people in the Iranian government to act like this towards their fellow human beings and imprison people for no crime? It’s all just very hard to believe.

    The Baha’i system, which in its outward form is organized, but in its Essence can never be systematized using human logic, is intended to revolutionize the whole order of the world. Baha’u'llah’s claim is greater than human imagination which is constrained by the walls surrounding the human mind. Even the heart cannot contain its Splendor (Arabic: ” Baha’ “). Love and Hate are both submissive, lowly, and humble before His Countenance of Beauty.

    Baha’u'llah’s claim fulfills all the religious, spiritual, philosophical, poetic, emotional, and logical promises, expectations and aspirations of human history over the past 10,000 years. All religious texts praise Him and speak of Him as the Origin of Creation, He Who Neither Begets or is Begotten, Knower of Things Unseen. He it is Who Appears (Manifests) in This Day, during this Most Great End of Times. No, More!, the Hour has already passed, if ye can perceive!

    Iran is an Islamic republic. This kind of persecution of religious minorities is part and parcel of such an order. Islam means submission, no peace.
