Was he really a Bahai?

The late Amir-Abbas Hoveida, who served as the Prime Minister of Iran from 1965 to 1977, has often been called a Baha’i.  Antagonists of the Baha’i Faith make this allegation to demonstrate that Baha’is supposedly held positions of power in the Pahlavi dynasty of Iran (1925-1979) and greatly influenced it as a result.  However, such an allegation is not only incompatible with history but also impossible in light of the fundamental verities of the Baha’i Faith.  Many other members of the Shah’s cabinet have also been accused of being Baha’is, but Hoveida’s name is by far the most frequently mentioned among them.  Thus, this essay only focuses on him, and will list the reasons why Hoveida could never have been a member of the Baha’i Faith.  The essay will also deal with his personal life and beliefs.
