    1. Their religion is political enemy with Muslims and Shiites.
    2. Interpret Quran to support enemies against Shiites and Muslims.

    4. Support Israel #1 enemy of Iran.

    Thanks for letting me know Khomeini (q) and Khamanei (ha) were right about this. I thought it was just propaganda all this time against you guys.

    Feeble as secularism is in the USA, it is still hardly fair to compare the theocracy that is present day Iran to the USA.

    The very idea that a government should reserve itself the right to decide whether a doctrine is "allowed" to spread is... weird and very dictatorial really.

    But I have come to expect such misconceptions from Muslim perspectives.

    It allows religions in general. Why not Bahaism, I never understood, but understand now. Their interpretation of Quran and their religion is done in political opposition to Shiite Muslims and they work against the Shiite Muslims as did they did during Shah time, and they continue now. This is not imagined, see what @InvestigateTruth says about verses and Shiite Muslims being punished by God.

    Seeing how you're here encouraging hate against Baha'is, maybe it's Islam that should be banned... no?

    You can do what you want. But Bahaism interpretation of Quran justifies human suffering and oppression and see Muslims suffering as God's punishment and also have a messed interpretation that supports Zionism. They shouldn't be accepted as a real religion, they are hateful and with the oppressors.

    Why should they be accepted when their religion is mixed with an interpretation that makes them work against the Muslims, Shiites, and Iran?

    YES....Baha'i religion should be allowed to be practiced in Iran too.

    There's a huge difference with Muslims under Mohammad (s) and how they were happy with victory of Christians prophecy after some years of defeating their enemies after being in a severe state of weakness.

    We have the Christian Identity movement in the US. It's basically what you mentioned right there. As long as they don't endorse, incite or participate in violence then they are free to do or say what ever else

    Meh, they hide their hate against us, while I'm honest about hating oppressors. The point is they justify Quran to justify oppressed state of people. ***STAFF EDIT***It's against national security of the country of Iran to allow them to do what they please in their country.

    I don't want to ban any religion. I'm just pointing out that your argument can just as easily be applied in the other direction.

    The history of Baha'i persecution in Muslim-majority countries suggests that Islam also justifies human suffering and oppression.


    But many Christian denominations also support Zionism. You aren't asking for them to be banned, are you?

    ... so they should be hatefully oppressed by Muslims?

    So? Your freedom of religion doesn't mean your religion is entitled to universal acceptance.

    The KKK is a terrorist organization. What acts of terrorism have the Baha'is committed?

    If some religion justified terrorism against US and killing civilians, would you allow it? This not different for me, with Bahaism justifying Zionism under Quran, and oppression we face as God's punishment.

    What do you mean with "religions in general"? What can you tell me about religious freedom in Iran?

    Are you aware that the Qur'an is deeply inimical to even other Abrahamics?

    No you aren't.

    You aren't standing up to oppression; you're advocating oppression. You are on the side of the oppressors.

    Again none of your words spread love and kindness, sound more like you belong to a dark version of Islam.
    FYI I just being honest too.

    Actually, the Bahais are very consistently the greatest non-Muslim defenders of Islam and Islamic communities.

    They have their own reasons for that, and I don't think those are very laudable, but that is how it goes.

    They committed crimes and killing of Shiites under Shah and worked with the Shah against Shiites. This was primary reason they weren't accepted I thought, but realize now their religion teaches them to justify oppression of believers including supporting Zionism and seeing Shiites and Muslims suffer as God's punishment.

    That is a very good question which I don't think you have considered with nearly enough attention.

    My experience is people who speak of love and kindness too much, always stand with oppressors against oppressed, and usually never the other way. But what do I know.

    Perhaps hate and retribution and belief in hell suppose to have a place to make us fear God and side with oppressed. But what do I know.

    Oh I have, I know the details. It's cowards only and hypocrites with no backbone or oppressors or racists, that side with Zionism only.

    What is very clear is that you can't fight hate and retribution with hate and ill will. That only create more hate.
