In Tamil Nadu state of India, friends who had completed Book 2 were systematically deployed to carry out home visits and excellent results were achieved:

During the recent cycle of growth in the Sivakasi and Thiruvannamalai clusters, it was found that there still remained a good number of new believers who had to be enrolled for the institute courses and we felt the need to systematize the home visit campaigns. The following measures were therefore undertaken:

(1) Compiling village-wise lists of the new believers who were yet to be enrolled for the institute courses;

(2) Compiling a list of the graduates of Ruhi Institute Book 2 in the areas where the new believers were enrolled; and

(3) Organizing a program to study the seven deepening themes once again with these graduates, followed by detailed planning on who would visit which new believers, the dates for the visit, and the sharing of each deepening theme.

In Ramalingapuram (Sivakasi), one believer who was conducting a study circle on Book 2 in a nearby village, took the participants along with him to visit four new believers and they shared with them the deepening theme on the Covenant and part of the second theme on the Life of Bahá’u’lláh. This resulted in all the four believers joining the institute course on Book 1. Similarly two other friends took three graduates of Book 2 to visit eight believers and shared with them the first deepening theme. All eight believers have expressed eagerness to study Book 1 and these friends will soon establish a study circle for them. In another part of Sivakasi, Alamarathupatti, three friends have shared the first deepening theme on the Covenant with 12 new believers, who became very happy and interested. While seven of them have been enrolled for the study of Book 1, five others have started attending devotional meetings.

A similar program for home visits was organized in the Thiruvannamalai cluster during the recent consolidation phase of its intensive program of growth. Following a refresher course on the first three deepening themes of Book 2, eight graduates of Book 2 devised a plan to visit the 60 new believers in Pandithapattu village, each of them planning to visit four to nine new believers with whom they would share the first three deepening themes during three visits. So far they have met 40 new believers and have shared with them the deepening themes. Twenty-five of these new believers are now ready to study Book 1 and their names have been given to the institute coordinator. Similarly, in Nallavanpalayam village, five graduates of Book 2 met 25 believers and have so far shared with them three deepening themes. Fifteen of these new believers are now ready to study Book 1.

A Bahá’í family of Hindu background, who became Bahá’í fairly recently, were studying Book 2 and wanted to carry out an act of service in support of the intensive program of growth in their cluster. They sat down and made a list of friends that they could go and visit to share some themes about the Faith. The names were of individuals they had invited to devotional meetings and who had shown some interest. Before undertaking the visits, the family came together and prayed for divine assistance. Out of the three families they visited, one family—the husband, wife, and son—were very attracted to the beauty of the teachings and had many questions. They discussed the themes of “The Covenant of God” and “God and His Manifestations.” Since the family they were visiting was also of Indian background, they took with them pictures of the Lotus Temple in India.

On the next visit, the Bahá’ís invited some other believers to join them in the home visit. The entire family, including the 14-year-old son, became Bahá’í. The parents have joined a Book 1 course and the son is in a youth class. Now that the consolidation phase of the intensive program of growth has begun, the family studying Book 2 is making another home visit to this newly enrolled family and sharing additional spiritual themes with them.

The following accounts about two intensive programs of growth are examples of when home visits were used as part of the consolidation phase after a teaching campaign. In this approach the friends shared the deepening themes presented in Book 2 with new believers, who often were then inspired to join an institute course.

They say the purpose of Bahai activities are betterment of society. It is nothing but deceptive conversion. Here is a letter written by Universal House of justice dt. 17 July 2006 where they say that the main purpose of Bahai activities are teaching the visitors and seekers about the Faith and finally converting them to the Bahai Faith.

The National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of India

Dear Bahá'í Friends,

The Universal House of Justice was very pleased to learn, as indicated in the letter dated 13 April 2006 from your Secretary for External Affairs, of the proclamation and teaching activities taking place at the House of Worship in India. The efforts of institutions and believers throughout the country to follow-up with visitors to the House of Worship who indicate an interest in receiving further information about the Faith are highly encouraging.

It is hoped that procedures for reaching out to such friends will be further developed over time, so that every eager soul is warmly received by a community near his or her home. In this connection, it is reasonable to expect that the institutions serving at the cluster level will increasingly take part in such efforts.

The community of Delhi is, of course, the greatest beneficiary of the teaching opportunities offered by the House of Worship, and the House of Justice is encouraged that the information centre is being utilized in a dignified and welcoming manner to reach out to seekers. For instance, it is noted that volunteers serving there familiarize visitors with the basic tenets of the Faith and invite them to participate in core activities.

Moreover, every Sunday, the House of Worship provides a venue for those who wish to attend study circles, and children and junior youth classes. The House of Justice was pleased to see that the cluster development facilitator and the institute coordinator have been involved in some aspects of these endeavours, and it feels that, in fact, the coordination and supervision of these activities rightly belongs to the agencies serving the Delhi cluster. Under their auspices, it is hoped that the believers in Delhi will take advantage of the abundant opportunities available and offer their services to facilitate core activities at the House of Worship, as well as provide home visits to those who have asked for further contact with the local community. Staff members from the information centre would, of course, be welcome to contribute to these efforts in their free time. In addition, with regard to the programmes on Sunday, those seekers who attend should, at some stage, be introduced to believers in their neighbourhoods and encouraged to participate in activities there.

You may be assured of the prayers of the House of Justice in the Holy Shrines on behalf of all the believers in India, that Bahá'u'lláh's grace and confirmations may be showered upon them as they strive to bring to the Faith an ever-growing number of the many receptive souls in your country.

With loving Bahá'í greetings,

How well is the Justice done by the Universal House of Justice!!!

This report of Baha’i conversion activity by deception is published in a Baha’i News letter REFLECTION ON GROWTH Issue 15, February 2007, page 5.

Here it is clearly reported that the Baha’i children classes and Junior Youths classes are only for systematic deceptive conversion and through these activities they target the parents as well and they take declaration from them that they are Baha’is. These numbers are then shown to Government of India for gaining the minority status We have just produced the report verbatim without any addition or deletion. The mention of “WIDER COMMUNITY” in the report means “HINDU COMMUNITY”. All these deceptive activities for NON BAHA’I CHILDREN are done in the name of SERVICE TO THE SOCIETY. The Baha’is are master of Hypocrisy and Deception.

These activities are well planned by Iranians and American masters and executed by unfortunate Indians in return of few Rupees. What a BETRAYL of the country!!!.

Children's classes and junior youth groups have proved to be excellent portals in India for gaining new participants for study circles because they provide an opportunity to reach out to new families. This is well illustrated by the recent expansion phase of the intensive program of growth in the capital city, New Delhi. In May 2006, after several cycles with only fair results, the community decided to make a consistent, intense effort to carry out children's classes, junior youth classes, and study circles. It identified six neighborhoods and then set about establishing classes for children and junior youth, primarily with the children of non-Baha'i families. The Baha'is worked hard to make the classes regular and to follow the prescribed curricula. This careful approach created a strong bond among the children's class teachers, the junior youth animators, and the tutors within each of the six neighborhoods.

Of course, an essential component of the classes was service. As the parents witnessed the transformation in their children and were impressed by their acts of service, they became more open to the Faith. During the expansion phase of the seventh cycle (January 2007), large devotional gatherings were held in each of the six neighborhoods. The children and junior youth chanted prayers, presented skits, and gave speeches about what they had learned. The speeches of the junior youth in particular moved the hearts of the parents and the others present.

After the children were given refreshments and excused, the adults at each gathering were subdivided into small groups of five or six, and teachers positioned in each. The teachers began to teach the Faith directly to their small group. One participant related what happened.

“This was unprecedented for the Delhi community. We had no experience in doing this. However, we had made up our minds--and did it with many, many prayers and all the courage and audacity that we could muster. The adults were divided into small groups, and each group had a Baha'i who directly taught them the Faith with the help of the "teaching album." We found the album to be a very effective tool.

It prevented us from losing our focus and enabled us to present the Faith in a logical sequence and to quote from the Writings of Baha'u'llah.

 In our previous cycles of activity we had large-scale devotional gatherings; however, they were not followed by direct teaching in small groups. We had talks--and the approach was rather "impersonal"--hence these events had resulted only in increasing our community of interest. In this expansion phase, the direct teaching in small groups allowed for a more personal and intimate atmosphere.

The teacher sat with five or six individuals and constantly had eye contact with them. The seekers felt more comfortable in a small group to ask questions and were at ease when they were asked whether they would like to enroll as Baha'is.

As a result of this direct teaching approach in neighborhoods, during the intensive two-week expansion phase of the seventh cycle, 206 people were enrolled in the Faith in Delhi. During the four cycles of the previous year, this cluster had a total of about 100 enrollments. Most of the new believers are parents of the children and junior youth attending the Baha'i classes, and they have now swelled the numbers of those entering Book 1. Because close working relationships had already developed among the teachers of the children's classes, the junior youth animators, and the tutors, establishing study circles with the new believers in the six targeted neighborhoods is being accomplished with relative ease.

The Task of Building an Ever-Expanding Pyramid of Human Resources.

Communities are encountering challenges as they endeavor to continually expand the institute process, an element essential to sustaining growth. Various challenges need to be addressed. For example, some communities have exhausted their pool of believers and so must turn more to attracting the wider community, yet are uncertain how to achieve this. Others have difficulty stimulating the participants to move from one course to the next. Finally, numerous communities find that a significant number of those who complete the full sequence of courses are nonetheless hesitant to tutor a study circle.

An example of extreme selfishness of Baha’is

T-Wood Artists Pay Tributes to Nirbhaya - Bahais called it a political issue.
I am a Journalist by profession and have a few Baha’i friends, and almost on a daily basis I hear about the “oppression of Baha’is in Iran”, which saddens me. But what makes me question things is this: Out of all of the oppressed peoples of the world, from South America to Chechnya, from Iran to the First Nation peoples of North America, why is that so much attention is given to seven people in Iran? I am not saying that persecution requires a high number of people for it to be persecution, but they act as if Baha’is are the only people being persecuted in that country. In the past twenty years, about two-hundred Baha’is have been executed by the State. That is a serious human rights crime, but does it really warrant a war, sanctions, and massive death for the entire Iranian population, while other countries that are allies of the United States kill groups of people in the thousands? And when non-Baha’is question Baha’is why they don’t speak out against the oppression of other groups of people, they basically say that it’s not their job.

I went to Bahai House for condemnation of the Rapist in Narbhaya case, because I saw that the whole of the humanity was pouring out the sympathy for the Braveheart, but the Bahai Administration was silent on the whole issue.

Their reply which I received was “we believe in reforming and betterment of the society and moreover we do not interfere in politics.” I was shell shocked at the hypocrisy of this Iranian Bahai lady who called this a politics and want every Indian to stand on their toes for the 7 Bahais imprisoned in Iran.

Which would be a “fair”, albeit selfish answer if it were not for the sheer fact that the Baha’i institutions call on non- Baha’is to speak out on behalf of Baha’is? But when the tables are turned, the Baha’i institutions don’t want to hear it.

It left for me no time in concluding that the most hypocritical people on earth are these Bahais who manipulate everything of the Bahai Faith to suite them. Whether it is Holy writings or Bahai Funds. They ridge elections, they exaggerate census, manipulate Bahai money, Insult the Indians, they create martyrs to collect money.
