Persecution and prejudice by Universal House of Justice

(A CRY FROM THE HEART from a Persian Baha’i: Ahmad Karimpour’)

“Dear Friends,
I read your letter dated 20/08/02 with disgust and have decided to respond to you in English and set the record straight concerning the violation of my human and Baha’i rights and your continued coercive and intimidatory behaviour.
 

Your initial correspondence to this servant contained false and inaccurate allegations. You failed to conduct an independent enquiry and find out the merits of the case presented to you. You recorded as factual the rumours forwarded to you by a number of ill-intentioned and attention-seeking individuals, some of whom are regarded as the “learned!”. You accepted the unsubstantiated gossips of wrong-doers and did not bother to hear my side of the argument. On this count you have failed in one of the basic teachings of our beloved faith: the Independent Investigation of the Truth.

Roman Catholic Priests
You demanded from me, to recant my alleged association with an organisation I know nothing about and threatened me with sanctions of I did not comply. Though I objected to your bias and prejudice so clearly evident from the tone of your letter, I drafted a short reply and complied with your wishes. I did so purely out of my love for Baha’u’llah and the martyrs of the Faith, whom I had the pleasure of knowing.Yet in your most recent reply, you once again threaten me with sanctions even though I have complied with your every request. I take refuge in God from your harassments. Your tactics of thought control, inquisition, violation of my individual rights (innocent until proven guilty), intimidation, threats and sanctions are in complete violation of the role and function of a Spiritual Assembly as foretold by Abd’ul Baha and Shoghi Effendi. Your actions resemble the 14th century Inquisition by the Roman Catholic priests.
George Orwell ( 1903 –1950 )

Your continued harassment of this servant on false charges, have drawn a wedge in our family and resulted in the desertion of the Faith by my daughter – something even the mullahs were incapable of doing.

You have demonstrated to be a puppet in the hands of a few un-elected evil individuals with fancy titles. Persons who can say what they like and commit what wrong-doings they can without being questioned. I ask you, to whom shall we turn to, if these individuals one day rape our children? Why are they above the law?

Anyone who questions their evil methods and intentions, is labelled a “covenant breaker” and cast out of the Faith. Disagreement with them is seen as “trying to build a following” or “campaigning against the covenant”. Free speech and expressions of opinion are stifled through the imposition of a soviet style conformity with the system. One is persecuted for thinking independently and threatened with sanctions. Big Brother is watching every where and George Orwell’s 1984 is re- lived before our very eyes.

Pauline Hanson

In the mean time “Entry by Troops” becomes “Desertion by Troops” and even the thought-police are not able to halt the un-precendented desertions from the faith that we are witnessing today. In attempting to impose their vain imaginings on individuals, the racist policies of Apartheid and Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party are practiced in disguise. Justice and equality amongst the Bahai’s has given way to the creation of a new class of clergy with unlimited powers to silence any signs of independent thinking or free enquiry.

For the record, I wish to state the following:

1 – If you intend to cast me out of the faith (and yet have no solid reason for doing so), feel free to let me know. My daughters and I will happily resign en masse and grant your wish.

2 – If this event takes place, I reserve my full rights as an Australian citizen and a free individual to raise my case and demand justice through other sources / authorities.

You can never control my heart and faith“. . . . .

“I make a clear distinction between the Faith of Baha’u’llah and the evil intentions of those who seek leadership positions within the Baha’i administration. Oppression will always be evident in the light of history.

You have failed to be the “loving shepherds” you are meant to be. Choosing to play politics and please the un-elected few is in direct contravention of what you are elected for. “

Regards,
Ahmad Karimpour Perth – WA

    Is Bahai Religion a golf club??
    Or Is it a Social Organization or fans Club??
    Yes, I think Bahai Religion is a Social Organization and not a Religion.
    Because Religion is not forced upon the people.
    Its a matter between the followers and God.
    In Religion there is no confiscation of voting rights, ex- communications, elections.etc etc.
    Yes you are right Mr. fabio, – Bahai ‘religion’ is more like a golf club where the players have to follow the rules whether they like it or not!!!

    • fabio ehsani says:

      in my opinion there is nothing wrong with having some rules, even in an anarchist group there are some rules. every kind of community has them.

      Yes, I think Bahai Religion is a Social Organization and not a Religion.
      Because Religion is not forced upon the people.
      __indeed no one is forced to chose a religion, but if you want to stay, you must respect the believers and their rules. otherwise you are free to quit. but untill u declare yourself a bahai/muslim/Catholic u must respect their rules. I became a Bahai also because i like believers ‘s behavior and attitude raised by bahai’s rules.

      Its a matter between the followers and God.
      ___religion is a matter between followers and God, but in according to God’s teachings and rules.
      otherwise u may found your new religion and do whatever u want, but u have to name it differently and newly

      In Religion there is no confiscation of voting rights, ex- communications, elections.etc etc.
      ___ Maybe in your religion there is no. In the religion that u want to found, everyone can do whatever he wants without any consequences.
      in Catholic , in Bahai etc… there are some rules.

      Yes you are right Mr. fabio, – Bahai ‘religion’ is more like a golf club where the players have to follow the rules whether they like it or not!!!
      ___Yes you are right Mr. fabio, – Bahai ‘religion’ is more like a golf club where the FRIENDS have to follow the rules AS LONG AS they want to stay in the community! even an anarchist club must establish some rules.

      ciao ciao

        Have you gone through Bahai history??
        Do u know how many Babis were killed in this conflict between new religion and the older one.
        What is the attitude of Bahais for other bahai sects??
        What a bahai should do if UHJ takes wrong decision??
        Is it a infallible body which is immune from making mistakes ??
        If it so , Can u prove it ??
        Do u Know what Bahaullah did to his brother??And Abdul Baha to his brother ??
        I advise you to do more research on the life of Bahaullah( Mirsa Hussain Ali Noori) and Abdul Baha( Abbas Affendi )
