It should be noted that since years ago, the Iranian government has put opposing with Spiritual rituals, which are inconsistent with the traditional concepts of Islam, on their agenda and have persecuted many of the leaders and followers of these rituals.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has named these rituals as “False Mysticism” or “Emerging Mysticism”.
