As the representative of the families of Iranian terror victims, Habilian Association held an exhibition at Sakhteman Mosque in Mashhad to introduce the Hojjatieh Society.
According to Habilian, the exhibition presented posters about the establishment of Hojjatieh Society, the intellectual and ideological perversions of its founders, its extensive relations with SAVAK, its financial documents and propagation methods, recruitment techniques, and introducing websites and satellite channels serving interests of Hojjatieh Society.
Hojat-ol-Islam Amini-nia delivered a speech in the exhibition about the intellectual deviations of members of the Hojjatieh Society.
He said the founder of the society, Sheikh Mahmoud Halabi, who is no longer alive was a relatively successful cleric delivering religious sermons who was opposed to philosophy. He added that the emergence of the organization dates back to early 1970s, when Halabi together with some other individuals formed an organization and drafted a charter explaining their main purpose as countering the Baha’ism and saving the young people from joining the depraved sect.
He noted that one of the principles of this society is having no involvement in political affairs. Having nothing to do with politicians and the government was a prerequisite for entering the society. This means that it struggled against Baha’ism, but ironically they never talked about Amir-Abbas Hoveyda and Farrokhru Parsa, two politicians under Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, who were allegedly Baha’i followers.
“Before the revolution, the purpose of the Hojjatieh Society was taking people’s revolutionary spirit. But after the revolution they infiltrated the (highest) levels of government to take the revolutionary spirit from the government, so that it would no longer followed the words of Imam Khomeini.”
Amini-nia went on to say that Imam Khomeini was the first person who detected the infiltration of Hojjatieh Society members into the government.
He added, “One major divergent point between Hojjatieh Society and Islamic Republic is that they don’t believe in the formation of an Islamic government before the reappearance of Imam Mahdi,” the last and 12th Shiite Imam which Shiite Muslims believe had disappeared but will return before the day of Judgment and dispense even-handed justice.
