Dear Baha’i Friends,
RE: MR. NIMA HAZINI
The National Spiritual Assembly of Australia has been informed by the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States that Mr. Nima Hazini occasionally spends time in Australia visiting parents and often associates with the Baha’i youth here. As Mr. Hazini’s parents are members of your community we are sharing the following information (which has been provided by the National Assembly of the United States) with your Assembly:
“…It is important for you to know that Mr. Hazini withdrew his Baha’i membership in December 1996 after expressing his strong dissatisfaction with the Baha’i community and our National Spiritual Assembly. Shortly after his withdrawal was accepted, Mr. Hazini wrote to the National Spiritual Assembly stating that he had not withdrawn from the Baha’i Faith but had withdrawn only from the Baha’i community. He provided a copy of his letter to the Universal House of Justice…When Mr. Hazini received a copy of the Universal House of Justice’s letter, he chose not to pursue reinstatement of his Baha’i membership. The last information that we had about him was that he had decided to become a follower of Sufism.”
At one stage Mr. Hazini was transferred to the United States as a Baha’i in good standing. However, in light of the information given by the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States we have made the necessary changes in our records about his status. Your Spiritual Assembly is advised to be alert to Mr. Nima Hazini’s activities in your area, when he comes to Australia to visit his parents, especially his association with the Baha’i youth.. Thanking you for your cooperation and with loving Baha’i greetings.
