“As the two Indian cavalry brigades fighting under British General Edmund Allenby helped liberate Haifa from the Turkish-German forces, the British authorities heaved a sigh of relief. In a cable, General Allenby wrote, “Have today taken Palestine. Notify the world that Abdu’l Baha is safe.”
The spiritual leader of Bahai religion, a faith that began to emerge in the Ottomon empire in the 19th century, lived in Haifa, in present-day Israel. Alarmed by the growing popularity of Abdu’l Baha and his humanitarian and religious activities, the Turkish commander-in-chief threatened to crucify Abdu’l Baha on Mount Carmel in Haifa and destroy all the shrines of the Bahai faith as soon as the Ottomans won the war.
When the news of the death threat spread amongst the British community in Egypt and elsewhere in Europe, Major Tudor-Pole, an intelligence officer with the British army in Palestine and a follower of Abdu’l Baha, persuaded the military authorities to rescue the leader.”

The Iranian holocaust of 1917-19
The Great Famine & Genocide in Iran
1917-1919, 2nd Edition
“At least 8-10 million Iranians out of a population of 18-20 million died of starvation and disease during the famine of 1917-1919. The Iranian holocaust was the biggest calamity of World War I and one of the worst genocides of the 20th century, yet it remained concealed for nearly a century. The 2003 edition of this book relied primarily on US diplomatic records and memoirs of British officers who served in Iran in World War I, but in this edition these documents have been supplemented with US military records, British official sources, memoirs, diaries of notable Iranians, and a wide array of Iranian newspaper reports. In addition, the demographic data has been expanded to include newly discovered US State Department documents on Iran’s pre-1914 population. This book also includes a new chapter with a detailed military and political history of Iran in World War I. A work of enduring value, Majd provides a comprehensive account of Iran’s greatest calamity.”
This article is the first in a series which has been compiled from the book “Kashful Heel” written by Abdul Husain Aayati. He lived amongst the Bahais for 20 years and served them through these years. He was popularly known as “Awareh” which means the one who wandered about in love (of Bahaullah). After these years, he saw the corruptions of the Bahais first hand, renounced the Bahai Faith and finally reverted back to Islam. Thereafter he wrote the book “Kashful Heel” to reveal the true face and hypocrisy of the Bahais. The life history of Awareh is full of interesting events and episodes which outline the true face of the Bahais as revealed by an insider.
Professor E. G. Browne wrote a book about the Bahais known as “Materials for the Study of Babi Religion.” On page 7 of this book, he writes, “Bahaullah migrated from Baghdad to Sulaymania Kurdistan with his servant Abul Qasim in the year 1271 AH. His servant died on the way. He said that I have heard from Abbas Afandi that Abul Qasim was Hamdani and he went from Sulaymania to Hamdan as per the wish of Bahaullah. After having sold all his property in Hamdan, he was returning to Sulaymania and since Bahaullah knew that Abul Qasim had cash with him, he killed him”.
He said at another instance that the news of the murder of Abul Qasim was published in the newspaper. It was written in the paper that “Abul Qasim Hamdani is killed near Sulaymani and his head is cut off and his belongings have been taken away but his killer is not known.”
Abbas Afandi said at another place that, “We understood from the killing of Abul Qasim that Bahaullah was in Kurdistan.”
One of the Bahais said: “We can derive from all these saying of Abbas Afandi that the killer of Abul Qasim is the same person who betrayed Abul Qasim and convinced him that he should encash his property and should go to Sulaymanai but as soon as he reached there, he took him to desert of Sulaymania and put him to death and usurped his belongings and his cash.”
At another place he said, “Before Abul Qasim could meet Bahaullah, he was killed and his cash was stolen and his murder was portrayed as a normal death to Professor Browne who made many changes in the history under the influence of Bahais. Since many such huge murders were committed by Bahaullah and his sons, most of the Bahais have asserted that the killer of Abul Qasim is no one other than Bahaullah and it is not surprising at all!
Professor Browne has recorded another incident at page 10 of his book as follows, “Aqa Sayyed Ismael Zawareha left Baghdad and went to Kazmain in the year 1284 AH and committed suicide.”

How the Baha’is benefitted from the 1917-19 British engineered holocaust in Iran
What follows is the account of an eminent Persian Bahá’í, Mírzá Áqá Khán Qá’im-Maqámí—the great-grandson of Mírzá Abuʼl-Qásim Qáʼim-Maqám Faráhání, the prime minister under Muhammad Shah and the man lauded by Bahá’u’lláh Himself as “the Prince of the City of Statesmanship and Literary Accomplishment” (Tablets of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 65)—who used his immense wealth to keep all the Bahá’ís of Persia well-fed as a devastating famine ravaged the country. The anecdote is derived from a larger biographical sketch of Mírzá Áqá Khán Qá’im-Maqámí by the late Hasan Noushabadi, who wrote up his remembrances and published them as an article entitled Rajul-i-Rashíd (“The Man of Courage”) in the Persian-language Áhang-i-Badíʻ (“New Melody”) magazine, which I have been working to translate for some time.
I hope you enjoy this inspiring story.
It was towards the beginning of autumn in 1916 when I [Hasan Noushabadi] myself left Arák for Ṭihrán. Qá’im-Maqámí said to me:
“The coming winter will bring dire scarcity and famine. The Baháʼís must be made aware of this fact, and urged to prepare, to the greatest extent possible, wintertime provisions and victuals for themselves and their families. In assemblies and gatherings, advise the Baháʼís openly and privately even to sell their furniture, and to buy and hold on to wheat, barley, sangak bread, lima beans, and maize.”
He also said:
“ʻAbduʼl-Bahá appeared to me in a dream and stated, ‘Scarcity and famine are in store this year. Woe betide the wealthy among the Baháʼís if even one of their impoverished brethren should starve to death!'”
Owing to Qá’im-Maqámí’s persistence and insistence—as well as this poor servant’s efforts to share the aforementioned anecdote with others and urgently exhort them to act accordingly, believing as I did in the significance of Qá’im-Maqámí’s dreams and remarks—the Baháʼís were eventually persuaded to prepare their wintertime provisions by whatever means necessary, even if it meant selling their rugs and other furnishings. In addition, those who had been charged with spiritual affairs began to gather resources that would aid the poor during the winter. To that end, these individuals solicited funds from every one of the most eminently wealthy Baháʼís, and successfully secured written commitments from them to donate large sums of money. Ultimately, a record of all these commitments was given to Qá’im-Maqámí; he calculated the total sum of these donations, and committed to match that amount from his own funds. With all this money, Qá’im-Maqámí purchased an ample supply of food in the name of the poor, and kept it in storage. Furthermore, he appointed a special committee that would visit the homes of every Baháʼí in Ṭihrán, determine the number of people in each family, and make a note of their income and expenses. Those who could not make ends meet, or did not have a cent to their name, did not escape the vigilant attention of Qá’im-Maqámí; every one of those needy souls received rations. Indeed, from the first sign of privation and paucity until the following spring, Qá’im-Maqámí saw to it that provisions were regularly given to every family that needed them. Even on the eve of the Persian New Year, he prepared rice cooked with shortening—so much so that there was plenty to go around—and he offered it to everyone so they could have a proper meal and remain in high spirits.
In brief, Qá’im-Maqámí did not allow even one Baháʼí to go hungry or live in dire straits—and this at a time when so many other people starved to death. Those poor souls would go to the slaughterhouse, drink whatever blood they could find, and ultimately die. Others would repair to the wilderness and eat grass—and there, too, would they perish. It was even heard that some of these people would kill and eat their own children, and also those of others. And yet, as far as the impoverished Baháʼís were concerned, not one of them starved to death.
It can truly be said that all these blessings allotted to the Baháʼís, poor and rich alike—inasmuch as the poor were rescued from hunger, and the rich were made the recipients of God’s grace and guidance—stemmed from the prudence, the purity of heart, the effectual measures, and the generosity of this noble man.

The anti-Iranian nature of the missionary affair continues to reverbate within the Iranian Baha’i community. Iran has been the cradle of this British manufactured, Zionist supported cult from the very beginning. Most of its adherents have come from Iran. In fact, for all theirposturing that they have managed to convert large populations in the Third World – and who for some reason can’t actually be found any rolls –, no other country in the world has been so receptive to the Baha’i idea than Iranians and particularly Iranian Jews.
These days, predominantly of former Jewish and sometimes Zoroastrian backgrounds, the current make up of Baha’is in Iran is vastly different to what it was in the late nineteenth centuary. The Baha’i faith lost its appeal to the mainstream Iranian community in the early 1900s during the Constitutional Revolution when Abbas Effendi not only failed to support the constitutional movement, but tacitly even supported the Russian involvement in Iranian internal politics and its sponsoring of Muhammad Ali Shah’s coup d’etat against the Parliament and people of Iran. Later in the mid 1950s Shoghi Effendi directly instructed Iranian Baha’is to work closely with the Pahlavi regime,ergo Habib Sabet. The exodus of Baha’is from Muslim backgrounds resulted in the reduction in the intellectual output of the community. Coupled with that came the influx of new believers from these Iranian Jewish and Zoroastrian minorities. The new believers had been under persecution in their respective religions and saw the new faith as an opportunity to exert control over others.
Brought together by their dislike of Muslim influences on Iranian culture, the Jewish Baha’is began to gradually purge the Iranian Baha’i community from its Islamic roots and origins. This can be witnessed in their whitewashings of the militant Shi’ite and Babi past. This agenda fitted well with Shoghi Effendi’s vision of abandoning Iran in favour of exporting the cult to other parts of the world. With the death of Shoghi Effendi in 1957 and the rise of the new UHJ oligarchy, the new Jewish (and sometimes Zoroastrian) adherents were quickly promoted through the ranks to high places within the Iranian
and International Baha’i communities.
Key members of the Iranian NSA and continental Board of Counselors came from this new ethnic grouping in the Baha’i cult. Following the 1979 revolution, most of the Jewish Baha’i elite migrated to Western Europe and California, USA, where their monies helped buy properties for the AO. The completion of the ARC project is owed to a large part to donations given from these two groups. Several confidential trips by UHJ members Fatheazam and Nakhjavani to LA and Australia in 1989 ensured that all the monies required for the ARC were secured from these groups. In fact the whole of these monies had been raised long before the advertising campaign for fundraising ever begun, much of through their own investments, with smatterings of large grants and subsidies given them by the Israeli government.
During the late 80s and early 90s many of the donators and their relatives were rewarded by the BWC by being nominated to key positions on the Continental Board and the ITC. In fact a quick scan of existing Counsellors in Europe, Australia and North America since 1985 suggests that former Zoroastrians and Jews have done quite well in this regard, but not their Muslim background counterparts.
The UHJs decision to adopt a more rabid form of fundamentalism and hardline position in 1996 bode well for the Baha’i Jews especially. They were the ones that successfully lobbied the UHJ to:
1) Instruct Iranian Baha’is not to attend Naw-Ruz celebrations by Iranian exile communities;
2) Instruct Iranian Baha’is not to associate with the general Iranian community in exile, thereby attempting to foist a Baha’i-only – rather than a universally Iranian – Naw-Ruz culture.
Counsellor Manijeh Reyhani, for example, who was instrumental in getting Hamid Taheri excommunicated comes from a dual Zoroastrian and Jewish background. These people control the Payam-i Bahai magazine (run by ’60s-’70s Pahlavi insider Shapour Rasekh a.k.a. Delaram Mashhuri), the Andalib magazine, and, until its demise Landegg in Switzerland, as well as Radio Bahai (broadcasting in Persian), not to mention composition of the Ruhi modules.
Iran has always been rich in supplying and exporting Baha’i travel teachers around the world. The Baha’i Jewish lobby now wants to dominate and silence the mainstream Iranian Baha’i community by exporting their hyper-fundamentalist reading of the cult into Iran.
They have funded companies and businesses through the missionaries in order to “teach the youth” and set up Ruhi Institutes. The Baha’i community in Iran has suffered enormously at the hands of the Islamic regime. It has lost some of its most charismatic Baha’i intellectuals like the Bakhtavars or Davudis. The present elite leadership is exclusively made up of former Jews. There are deep divisions in the community and some of the truly learned ones have boycotted the current crop of leaders and their activities.
So this latest effort to export missionaries is aimed at demonstrating “the correct version of the faith” to the rank and file at the same time isolating (and hopefully driving out) the voices of dissent. It is also a means, among others, by the Israelis to gain further footholds inside Iran itself. Both policies, it would appear, have now failed.
The Iranian Baha’i community is racked with dissension and schism, and the IR finally blew its top (and reasonably so given all the freedoms they had given the Baha’is since the mid ’90s) with this ridiculous allegation of genocide by the Jewish Baha’i leadership. One wonders if maybe deep down these Jewish Baha’is actually pray for a holocaust to occur in Iran so that they can politically capitalize on it for their future designs, just as their European Jewish counterparts vis-a-vis Palestine.
Following in the footsteps of his grandfather, Shoghi Effendi also chose to excommunicate his relatives who did not show absolute deference to his wishes and views. By the end of his life, he had excommunicated every one of the descendants of ‘Abdu’l-Baha as well as all the descendants of Baha’u’llah’s third wife. Thus, the entire family of Ba- ha’u’llah—except for Shoghi Effendi himself, his wife Ruhiyyih, and ‘Abdu’l-Baha’s widow Munirih and sister Bahiyyih—ended up expelled from the mainstream Baha’i community and shunned……
Baha’u’llah made it incumbent upon every believing Baha’i to prepare a will and testament (the most Holy Book, para 255) during his life time. And he followed his own command when he wrote a will and appointed an heir, so that his family and followers would not face any such difficulties after him.
In the same way, Abdul-Baha considered it necessary to write a will during one’s life, having also written his own valuable Will and Testament, which includes his important edicts and recommendations.
According to the most Holy Book, if a Baha’i dies and does not leave a will, all of his or her belongings and properties should be divided among the following seven groups: spouse, children, father, mother, brother(s), sister(s) and teacher.
And according to the Kitab-i Aqdas, if any member of the above categories were deceased, his or her share will be inherited by the UHJ. Finally, according to that same Holy Book, all non-Baha’is, non-believers, Covenant-breakers, and those excommunicated from the Faith, are deprived from a Baha’i’s estate.
Now, I would like to draw your attention to a very important event in the history of the Baha’i community. As you are well aware, the Beloved Guardian, Shoghi Effendi, passed away in London in the summer of 1957. He journeyed to London in order to purchase necessary material to complete the archives buildings. There, he died having suffered from a previously-undiagnosed disease. (The story of his departure and all subsequent events can fill an entire article in and of itself, and should therefore be reviewed separately.)
Unfortunately, various disputes about his successor and belongings began after the Beloved Guardian’s departure. Naturally, those properties of Shoghi Effendi that belonged to the Baha’i Community should have been given to his successor and the chairman of the first international Baha’i Council, Mason Remey. But the Hands of the Cause, having turned a blind eye to the previous writings of the Guardian—and other evidence of his intentions for his estate—and under the pretense that they did not find any written will from Shoghi Effendi, declared that, according to a divine abrogation of the previous determinism (Badaa), the institution of the living Guardian of the Cause will be discontinued!
By neglecting the succession of Mason Remey, and announcing the end of Guardianship, it became necessary to divide the inheritance of Shoghi Effendi among the seven groups the Holy Aqdas ordains. But because of a number of reasons, including the absence of a majority of the heirs, the Aqdas decree was also abandoned! (Shoghi Effendi’s parents had already departed; his brothers and sisters had been excommunicated as Covenant- breakers; he had no children; and no Baha’i could claim to be his teacher.)
Therefore, according to the articles of the Aqdas, around 19% of the inheritance should have been given to his living wife, Ruhhiya Khaanum , and the rest—in the absence of the heirs and non-establishment of the U.H.J—should have been given to the highest Baha’i official of that time, i.e., the second Guardian and Chair of the International Baha’i Council (the precursor to the UHJ), Mr. Mason Remey.
Some of the Iranian Hands, such as Zekrullah Khadem, Shoa’ullah Alaei, Alimohammad Vargha A. Foroutan, Mohajer, and Hassan A. Balyuzi, in cooperation with John Froby, Hadi Rahmani Shirazi, General A. Moqarrabi, and Habib Sabet, and Manoochehr Ghaem Maghami, wanted to procure the inheritance themselves and avoided handing over the inheritance to Mason Remey. Thus, they conjured up a solution: they will meet the excommunicated sisters and brothers of the Beloved Guardian, and will somehow reach an agreement as to how to divide Shoghi Efendi’s inheritance.
Since the Baha’i writings explicitly forbid distributing any amount of a Baha’is estate to the Covenant-Breakers, this meant that the portion of the inheritance that was due his parents, children, and teachers would have been lost. So they decided to distribute the remainder of the inheritance of Shoghi Effendi in Iran, in accordance with the Islamic law of inheritance. And so, they needed to declare to the Iranian court that the Guardian was a Muslim!
It was duly performed, with the approval of Ruhiyya Khanum, the widow of the beloved Guardian and one of the Hands (who according to Islamic law would not have received any part of the inheritance because she was not Muslim). Thus, the first Guardian of the Baha’i Faith, was declared a Muslim. (His inheritance case was filed under No. 1464 in the Iranian Justice Ministry.) And thus, all of Shoghi Effendi’s inheritance was supposedly divided among his four excommunicated brothers and sisters: Hussain, Riyaz, Rouhangiz, and Mehrangiz.
Once accomplished, the said Covenant-Breakers, having received a commission for their services, agreed to transfer the ownership of these properties to the name of Mr. M.A. Varqa, one of the Hands, and the trustee of Huquq-ullah. Mr. Varqa, in turn, transferred this inheritance to the name of some famous Iranian Baha’is, individuals like Mr. Habib Sabet. After some time, the Iranian National Spiritual Assembly established a trust, and transferred most of that inheritance to that trust, although some of it illegally remained in the hands of those famous Iranian Baha’is!
This entire undertaking was done in cooperation with some of the Hands and the Covenant-Breakers from the family of Shoghi Effendi. And, it must be noted, these surreptitious acts were expressly protested by some of the Friends and LSAs and NSA; yet their concerns were mostly neglected. When they were responded to, it would be angry ripostes by the Hands, who continuously threatened to excommunicate the protesters on the pretense that they were weakening the unity of the Baha’i Community.
The protesters believed that the Guardian had prohibited any contact with Covenant-Breakers, and had considered it a grave sin. And the perpetrator of such a crime would deserve the harshest of punishments, that of being excommunicated himself. This was quite true about the close relatives of the Guardian, who would unceasingly persecute him. Ruhiyya Khanum, for example, has mentioned in her diary about the Guardian:
“These events are continuous. These fights, which first began with only one of them, and which later united all of his family against him, are seriously wearing him down. Even now, I can see him with his back bent, his heart broken, and his body physically weakened. All his relatives collectively attempt to exhaust him and indeed kill his soul…”
Then he added, “Those relatives who were around the great Abdul-Baha eventually murdered him… And will eventually kill me too.”
(Ruhiyyih Khanum, the Priceless Pearl, pp. 343 & 346)
Such a coalition of Hands of the Cause and long-time enemies of the Cause shook the foundations of the Cause to its very core. Many of the believers left the Baha’i community, while many other Friends had serious questions, which still remain. And, since then, none in the Baha’i administration or current UHJ has given a single satisfactory answer to these Friends, as they continuously attempt to conceal such issues from the Baha’is of the world. Only some of these questions are listed below:
1. When every Baha’i is required to keep a will, how can you claim that the Guardian, who was a great teacher and commentator of the holy words, failed to leave a will for his heirs?!
2. If we account for the decisions and actions taken by the Hands, why should we not assume that some of them had access to the private documents of the Guardian? And having found his will before anyone else, and being unsatisfied by what it contained, took aims to conceal or even destroy it?!
3. Despite the fact that according to Baha’i Law, the Covenant-Breakers and non-Baha‘is are entirely deprived from a Baha’i’s estate, how could they distribute the inheritance of the beloved Guardian among his excommunicated brothers and sisters? And do so only after appealing to Islamic law?!
4. How could they claim that the Guardian of the Faith was a Muslim, simply because it was to their own benefit, and so that they could procure his properties that actually belonged to the Baha’i Community? An act, fraudulent, treacherous, and in direct violation of the Guardian’s teachings and the views of the Community.
5. In the absence of the Guardian of the Cause, who protects the multi-billion dollar property of the Baha’i Community? Has the current UHJ, sans-Guardian, issued financial reports, statements, or combined financial statements of the owned properties, assets, or the amounts received as donations and Huquq-ullah? Has the UHJ ever published a statement of its receipts and expenses?
Unfortunately, the Baha’i administration attempts to silence all such questions under the pretext of unity in the Community, unswerving obedience to the UHJ, a possible increase in persecutions by the various states, etc. In other cases, questions and protests have been overlooked by exaggerated, and at times entirely false, reports of progress made by the Cause across the globe. And of course, a last and most intense measure taken by that House, has been that of disenrollment and excommunication of the questioners and/or protesters from the Baha’i Community!
One may suppose that the activities of the Custodian Hands could be justified, and assume they have good intentions, and try to protect the interests of the Faith. But we should know that the Guardian was always angry with Covenant-Breakers, and strictly refused to deal with them.
Ruhiyya Khanum writes in her diary:
“Once, the husband of the Guardian’s close relative died. His widow came to our house, and requested the Guardian to accept his will and presented a donation. She was even ready to hand over to him some of Baha’u’llah’s very own seals, items that Abdul-Baha, at the time of his journey to America, had entrusted to her. Yet, since she kept in contact with the Covenant-Breakers, the holy Guardian refused her donation and gift, and asked me to tell her:
“Until she forever disassociates, in heart and soul, from the Covenant-Breakers, I will not accept it, even if it was a million seals, or a donation the size of Mount Carmel!”
Even though those seals were invaluable to the Guardian, and he in fact needed them for the Archives, he looked at me and ordered me to tell her:
“The Guardian cannot do anything until she abides by this command. Otherwise, she can take the seals, the will, and everything else she brought with her away.”
(Ruhiyya Khanum., The Priceless Pearl, P. 349)
In short, a Community, devoid of a Guardian leading it, with a selfish, sinful, and profit-seeking group governing it, will suffer a quick decline and be utterly and totally lost.
It was for this reason that Abdul-Baha wrote in his Will and Testament:
“It is incumbent upon the Guardian of the Cause to appoint his successor and heir during his own life time.”
The takeaway here is that even if we do not see a written will from Shoghi Effendi—which, as they claim, he did not leave—we believe that he has clearly, albeit indirectly, appointed Mr. Mason Remey on several occasions as his successor. Mr. Remey enjoyed a very close relationship with the Guardian until the very last moments of his life. And the Guardian regarded him as absolutely trustworthy, conferring upon him many important roles and responsibilities.
With the warmest Baha’i greetings.
