1932-11-16 World Fellowship of Faiths
USBN #72 - April 1933 - pp. 3
Before you extend any sort of help to, or affiliate yourself with, the World
Fellowship of Faiths, Shoghi Effendi feels that the N.S.A. should find out whether
its purpose is in any way political, especially now that its leadership is
transferred from Rabbi Wise to Mr. Das Gupta. In case it is non- political and its
purpose is not a form of Indian propaganda, then the Guardian feels you should
take part in their gatherings. The first task is to find out the underlying motive
of the Society and then, in case it coincides with the Baha'i spirit, lend them
help and advise the friends to cooperate with them. Otherwise the Guardian
believes we will be involved in grievous difficulties.
