The Bahai Truth

All That They Didn't Tell You About the Faith

Baha’i Census from several countries exposes Baha’is

A.Wrong Bahai Census claimed by Bahai Adminstration

Shalom Scott in one of his observation said that,  “During my time as a Baha’i, I saw potential converts lied to by Baha’is regarding the membership of the Faith. The Baha’is, especially the Baha’i leadership, have always grossly inflated the ‘official’ numbers in order to present an inaccurate picture to the world (as well as to individuals considering conversion) and to make the Faith seem much more successful and influential than it really is.

A CHARACTERISTIC of the Baha’i administration is dishonesty in dealing with their census. This trickery takes place sometimes in the form of absolute exaggeration of numbers and at other times in the form of the suppression and concealment of facts; at times through the omission or perversion of essential facts or their presentation (rather misrepresentation) in such a manner so as to falsify actual data. to convey to the world that Baha’i Faith is very well accepted by the masses.”Regarding their numbers, the Baha’is have indulged in gross exaggeration. Ask Baha’is about their numbers and “Millions” is the usual figure claimed by them. The Baha’i census claims that there are 6 to 7.2 million adherents of the Faith in the world which is nothing but a blatant LIE.

Professor Juan Cole of the University of Michigan commented in April 2001 that, since 1968, 50% of the people who entered the bahai faith have left it. According to him, the usual figure for most Christian denominations is approximately 80% retention, meaning about only 20% decide to leave once they become a member. See Professor Cole’s comment below that even 5 million Baha’is worldwide is exaggerated by the Baha’i administration.

50% is truly a remarkably high number and reveals emphatically that something is indeed wrong about the atmosphere within the bahai faith. Often the new adherent quickly comes to realize someting is wrong behind the facade of love and brotherhood.

The FULL TEXT of the New Mexico lawsuit reveals what many of the problems are that are driving sensitive and thoughtful people out of the bahai faith in droves.

Juan Cole has also stated that according to the official census figures of India there are approximately only 5,000 bahais that they were able to find in the country compare with the millions claimed by the Bahai Administration, a fact worth lingering on….

See the Official Bahai census and what the Bahai Adminstration claims:

Sr, No. Countries Official Government data Baha’i exaggerated data
1 Barbodas 178(1) 3138(2)
2 Belize 202 (3,4) 7776 (2)
3 Canada 18945 (5) 30,000 (6),46587 (2)
4 Guyana 500 (7) 13045 (2)
5 India 4572 (8,9) 18,00,000 (2)

20,00,000 (11)

6 Mauritius 639 (10) 23703 (2)
7 New Zealand 2637 36,000
8 Pakistan 1200 78658
9 United States 48,000 1,75,000

The Official consecutive Government record shows decreasing Baha’i population and not the fastest growing religion as claimed by Baha’i Administration.

Usually the Governments where the population of a religious sect is insignificant they take them into ‘Others” . The cunning Baha’is make use of this unmentioned Baha’i population and write for that country number which is massive exaggeration hoping that nobody will go deep into the matter.

Thanks to Internet that the Baha’is lies are getting exposed. The various governments are coming out with exact Baha’i numbers which is just a fraction of what the Baha’i Administration claims. Moreover if someone compares the two consecutive census of a country he will find that the Baha’i numbers have actually decreased whereas all other Faiths have increased. This is well seen in the census of United States, India and New Zealand.

Country Official Baha’i population from the respective Governments
India Year




Year (2011)
Baha’i population 5575 11324 4572 Decreased
New zealand Year






Baha’i population 3104 2772 2637 Decreased
United states Year






Baha’i population 28,000 84,000 49,000 Decreased

What should be done?

It is a duty of every sincere Baha’i to write to Universal House of Justice and ask them why there is gross exaggeration in the Baha’i population in every country? What aim of the Baha’i Faith is served by these manipulated Baha’i figures?

Why there is decreasing trend of Baha’i numbers in various countries? Who is responsible for such deceit?  How Baha’i Faith is the fastest growing Religion?

If Baha’i Faith is amongst the revealed Faith then why the Baha’i Administration is so keenly and cleverly  indulging in propagating wrong figures.

Are we supposed to believe that Baha’i Faith is an NGO off course the most comfortable NGO which has no relation with divinity and as other NGOs exaggerate their numbers, we also do?

Please await the answer and the moment you hear from them “Forget about these government reports” immediately understand that the Persian hands are working behind it the Mohajer, Rezavi, and Jawaheri etc. The true followers of Rehmatullah Mohajar.
