'Baha'i Faith Incomplete without Guardian'

On September 8, 2010 an interview of the Hand of Cause of God Nosrat'u'llah Bahremand printed on page No.4 in th "Asian Age" Mumbai. There are some mistakes in the report by the reporter. The same is rectified here by the Hand of Cause of God Nosrat'u'llah Bahremand in his letter to Hand of Cause of God Dr. Parikh, which I am posting for the readers.

Dear Dr. Parikh,
Thank you very much for your email. The efforts of the Indian friends is praiseworthy. I saw the newspaper's report with pleasure. There are some mistakes and misrepresentations in the report which may cause confusion and misunderstanding among the non-believers and heterodox Baha'is as, for example: Naming Abdu'l Baha, "the founder of the religion" and the erroneous statement: "12 principals laid down by the first guardian" and in reference to the heterodox Baha'is: "they are the followers and lovers of.." while we know that Baha'u'llah is the Founder of the Baha'i Faith and the 12 Principals were revealed by Him, and we should consider the heterodox Baha'is as believers not "followers" of Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l Baha.

I can appreciate the hardship in summarising what I have said by the reporter due to his inadequate knowledge of the Faith and welcome any attempt that you may make or our friend, to obtain corrections.
With best wishes and regards,

Dear Baha'i Friends,

The language which you are using is against the teachings of Baha'i Faith.

I invite you for the independent investigation of Truth.

I request, if there are any learned Baha'i among you who are having command over the writings of Baha u llah and Abdu'l Baha, come forward, I will prove you that you have gone agaist the Will of Baha u llah and Abdu'l Baha.

I request you to please identify yourself I will correspond with you and clarify you that who is covenant breaker.

Rajendra Upadhyaye.
