The Suppression of the Baha'is of Iran in 1955
Abstract:This is the translation of that part of Dr Choubine's Introduction to Al Dasht, 23 Sl (23 Years) that deals with the persecutions of the Baha'is of Iran during the reign of Muhammad Reza Shah. It has been published in Persian on the Internet as a separate work and covers such episodes as the forged Dolgorouki memoirs and the collusion between the shah and the highest-ranking cleric of the Shii world, Ayatu'llah Burujirdi, in the campaign of persecutions that occurred in 1955 following the radio broadcasts of Falsafi. Dr Choubine also deals with the role of Ayatu'llah Khomeini, Ayatu'llah Muntaziri and the Hujjatiyyih in this period.
