I recently received a letter from an observer of the desecration of graves in Iran. It gives pause to wonder about the failure of some community ‘leaders’ to understand basic respect. Do they think by labelling themselves, ‘religious’ that their evil becomes invisible in the world of the spirit. I am reminded of the child who tries to hide by standing closely behind a thin post. They cannot see anything through the post, therefore they think that no-one can see them. Fortunately for the carers of humanity, those who are blind per force of standing only behind the post of their thinly veiled tantrums for domination over others, are in full view. We know they are despisers of God, and despisers of peace and despisers of humanity. In their desperation to achieve anything from their spite, they become attracted to the cemetery. They are like the bat who circles the darkness looking for a roost in the night. They resent the light and long for the underworld. However God has commanded that though they “traverse the expanse of heaven, yet thou wouldst find no rest save in submission to Our command and humbleness before Our Face.” (Baha’u’llah, The Arabic Hidden Words)
Here is the letter:
The government officials in the city of Najafabad , in Isfahan have allocated a certain area on the mountains for Baha’is to bury their dead, in the middle of no where, of which Baha’is are still thankful. Very recently, as you know, this site allocated to the Baha’i people had been desecrated or violated by the fanatic clergy.
I have attached a few photos to see the level of destruction to this area. This cemetery is in the middle of the desert and mountains and the land is very hard and rocky, its access very difficult to get to. I remember when the Bahai’s wanted to dig and bury their dead, they had to do so by digging with their hands, spades, picks and shovels after which their hands were covered with blisters for the hard work.
It is very sad that some people in the close vicinity have machines like bulldozers and/or bobcats but refuse to help or assist Baha’i friends
The Baha’is have had ready made coffins on site to bury loved ones if/when they pass away and very recently these clergy Muslims have gone around and filled these coffins with heavy rocks and dirt which the Baha’i friends have to empty out again by hand. They have also blocked entry to the cemetery with large rocks and dirt so as to prevent Baha’i entry. Now all the Bahai’s have to clear this area again by hand.
It is only through the love of Baha’u’llah that help these people sustain all these hardships with sacrifice and devotion.
Friends, can you please send this email to anyone you know so the world sees first hand what these cruel people do. I think with this act we can help our Baha’i friends in Iran , everyone around the world must know about what these Baha’i friends go through and sustain in Iran .
