From Tahireh to Rouhiyeh…


Regarding the key and influential role of women in all pillars of the community and the social movements, the heads of the deviant cult of Baha’ism have used and use women as the main factor of deviating from the right path and attracting people to this Colonial creed since the establishment of the cult; that is, since Ali Muhammad Bab exited using the orders of the Zionistic power centers.

The open-minded view towards Babism:

The existence of Baha’ism indicates that the mentioned cult has been formed due to the Colonial aims and it has been continually supported and directed by the alien power centers during its existence history; but unfortunately, the Iranian enlightment movement has been constantly considered as a barrier against the path of investigating and recognizing this cult. Unfortunately, most contemporary intellectuals and historians have tried to investigate Babism and Baha’ism sedition and riot as a “movement”.


Muhammad Reza Fashahi[4] who is now busy with teaching philosophy at university of Paris mentions the Babi Colonial sedition and riot as “ movement” in the book called “ the last movement of the Middle Age in Feudalist periods of time:

“The Feudalist revolutionary opponents existed during the Middle Ages periods of time and their campaigns radiated mostly in the form of gnosticism, clear atheism or armed movements. Nearly the first and second half of the 19th century, some changes and transformations occurred in the religious thought of Iran called “Sheikism School”. This transformation which was first formed in the religious and mystical thought ended in Babi movement that is a social one during the evolutional revolution. According to an extensive definition, this movement is located between a feudalist old community and its quick deviation and breakdown and it itself is one of the factors of this quick deviation and breakdown. In this movement, that great historical passage from a traditional community to an emerging one is observable in which Bab (Ali Muhammad Shirazi was its religious ideology[5]).
