Doctrines Of Baha’i Faith-Obedience to governments (Non-Participate in Political Matters)


“We see, therefore, that we must do two things – shun politics like the plague, and be obedient to the Government in power in the place where we reside.

(Shoghi Effendi, Directives from the Guardian, p.159)
