Baha’ism from the point of view of Baha’i intellectuals and critics, part 15, Ahmad Sohrab


Mirza Ahmad Sohrab is a Baha'i writer, researcher and critic who, after 46 years of being a member of Baha'i, was rejected by Shoghi because of his critical positions and protesting views he expressed towards Baha'i, Baha'i administrative organizations and Shoghi Effendi. Despite his interest in the Baha'i faith and the services he had rendered to the Baha'i community, he was harassed. Although Abdu'l-Bahá, the third leader of the Bahá'í Faith, had issued several plaques describing Sohrab and introduced him as a servant and activist, but after Abdu'l-Bahá's death, Shoghi Effendi could not bear to listen to his criticisms and opinions and preferred his records and approvals issued by Ignoring Abdu'l-Bahá and expeled him from the Bahá'í community. Sohrab did not accept Shoghi Effendi's method in managing the Baha’i community and believed that Shoghi's violent and autocratic deeds made the face of Baha'ism harsh and unbearable in the eyes of others. He introduced Shoghi-era Baha'ism as an intolerable sect and movement, and he was unhappy that a religion claiming humanitarian ideas had turned into a dangerous organization. After being expelled from the Baha’i community, Sohrab, with the cooperation of some of his Baha’i friends, and using the New History Association and the "Caravan of the East and the West" institute, continued to work in the field of introducing and promoting Baha’ism, and many fans in America and other countries gathered around him and practically the first division after the death of Abdu'l-Bahá was formed around him.
