During the 19th century, Britain had firm control over India; at the same time Russia had been expanding south and east into Central Asia toward India, and a rivalry started between Britain and Russia over territorial and political control in Central Asia. The piece of land that was located between India and Russian holdings, included Persia, was a highly coveted region, where both Russia and Britain worked to gain influence.
Briefly, the situation was – Support of the United Kingdom during the Constitutional Revolution, Anglo-Russian convention which solidified boundaries that identified control between Britain and Russia in Persia, Afghanistan, and Tibet, The occupation of Iranian territory during the First World War by the UK, Russia and the Ottoman Empire, as well as the coup d’état of 1921 which was backed by the British.
In such circumstances the Russian Government, to gain control over central Asia – especially Iran created a false Religion called as Bahaism. The Bahá’í Faith and the Bahá’ís have had ties to foreign powers, and were agents of Russian imperialism, British colonialism, American expansionism and International Zionism.
Bahá’í teachings promote to be loyal to one’s government and not be involved in politics but the fact is exactly contrary to what is preached. Baha’is are always involved in politics and seen with political leaders. They are known to have been involved in espionage activities in each and every country. This is the reason why they are banned in most of the countries. These countries found the followers of Bahá’í Faith, having dual loyalty and of being involved with foreign or hostile powers.
