Baha'u'llah's loyal kid brother helped him with the takeover of the Babi movement and helped him bushwack the hapless "Dawn of the Eternal" (see below). Too many murders caused governments to move the Baha'is around, and they were kept under surveillance. Both Baha and his brother appeared to be 4-and-a-half feet high..
Baha'is pride themselves on having an authentic religion unaltered by man. Not much point to that if you don't even let people read the texts. After hiding their inconvenient scripture for over a century, the Baha'i admin crew commenced to change it through clever mistranslation. They turned a brief text -- just 74 pages in the Elder-Miller trans. -- into a 320 page compendium of "administrative" explanations.
The Baha'i "Book of Laws"
Baha'i Aqdas Part II
Around 1873, according to Baha'is, Baha'u'llah "revealed" this "Book of Laws" as the guidance for mankind for the next thousand years. But for 120 years Baha'is made sure nobody heard about its contents.

Who Are the Baha'is Really?
Mirza Yahya or "Dawn of Eternity" who was appointed by "The Bab" as successor. The Babi Mirza Husayn Ali turned out to be a more aggressive organizer than the gentle Mirza Yahya and ended up with control of the movement.
The Baha'is continually falsified their own history, especially the history of the Bab and Mirza Yahya. Though claiming to be the successorship of the Bab, they extirpated all copies of the Bab's writings including his main book "The Bayan." 'Adbu'l-Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah and his successor, continued to falsify the past in his history called "A Traveler's Narrative," and the omissions and distortions were remarked upon by the orientalist E.G. Browne of Cambridge, who had studied the Babis and early Baha'is right in their own locales, including a meeting with Baha'u'llah.
One reason for the suppression of the Bab's writings was that it contained doctrines like reincarnation which were now being denied by the Baha'is. Another was that the Bab's writings made it seem unlikely or impossible that Baha'u'llah could be his successor or that the new Baha'i Faith could be legitimate.
This falsification of history then extended to the complete suppression of the Baha'i Faith's central scripture in the west, the "Kitab-i-Aqdas" or "Book of Laws," touted by Baha'is as their most important scripture and the blueprint and laws to guide mankind for the next "thousand years." Baha'is have long dismissed the value of other religions by stating, disingenuously, that "they don't have their original texts, we have the original texts." Or, they state that distortions have crept into the old religious texts. But Baha'is did that up 10 times better by simply suppressing the text (along with the photo of Baha'u'llah) and not allowing anybody to read it. Then, when finally obligated to offer up some sort of translation of embarrassing scriptures, the Baha'i authorities regularly introduce their own distortions to doctor the text.
An example would be the "wear sable" instruction of the Kitab-i-Aqdas. The unbiased, impartial Arabic scholars Miller & Elder translated it this way:
"Wear sable (sammur) just as you wear silk and squirrel-skin and other things."
The Miller/Ender translations contains cases of mere suggestion by Baha'u'llah as contrasted to explicit commands. They are easily distinguished from each other in their text. Baha'u'llah makes explicit commands regarding hair-length for men. He was a royal, and wanted his people to come off nicely to make him proud. Elsewhere he tells them to use perfume and rose water and renew their furnishings every 9 years. (He also enjoins upon Baha'is very fancy and pricey coffins.) But the "official translation" (when it finally came out) renders the line this way:
"Ye are free to wear the fur of the sable as ye would that of the beaver, the squirrel, and other animals."
...changing what was evidently a command into a mere option.
Who needs textual distortions brought by time and history to mess up your religion if you can simply suppress the text? Then, when obligated to come up with something, when you can create your own distortions yourself?
Glory Man's Bodacious Laws for the New Millennium:
Neuro-linguistic programming and mental manipulation began early in the Baha'i Faith, with their very founder.
The above bit of the Baha'i "Book of Laws" states that your children and descendants-left-behind have no natural right
to your property or wealth. Baha'u'llah's organization, the "House of Justice," would acquire it instead. This was one of the
early elements of Communism in the Baha'i Faith, which did evolve into the Marxist deracination, de-religionation,
and de-culturalization movement as much as a religion. Notice how just after his statement implying his bureau (the "Universal House of Justice")
would receive your property at death, he throws in: "He has no need of the worlds." (Referring to God.) That was to counter any
thought such as: "Why does God's House of Justice need to take everybody's wealth." Baha'u'llah heads that off at the pass, saying:
'God doesn't doesn't need your money and wealth. How dare you think that thought.' The Soviet propaganda machine had nothing
on Baha'u'llah. There are several instances of this kind of back-flushing and mind-messing from Baha'u'llah in his "Most Holy Book."
For example, immediately after directing Baha'is to mark a thief on the head with a "mar" (Haddad) he describes God (who is supposed
to be pronouncing this law) as "the Tender-hearted," and the "Merciful One." (Elder-Miller) He was quite a canny gnome.

Above: Baha'i men must send their wives home if they argue while traveling. He must pay her expenses
and give her to someone reliable. It would not be much of a problem in the Baha'i live because,
of course, the fellow would still have wives left behind to tend to his travel doings.
He only has to send the problematic wife home -- THAT wife.
The woman above might not like the next Baha'i Law:
Above: Baha'i Laws of the New Dispensation. For every errant screw you do, you have to give the the Universal House of Justice a seventh
of an ounce of gold. What a deal for the Baha'i UHJ! They'll be rich in no time.
Above: Baha'u'llah's advanced new-world harem limitations. Baha'i officialdom, refusing to publish the Baha'i Book of Laws for
120 years because of this and other not-so-sellable Baha'i verses -- finally came up with a tricky translation of this verse in 1992,
in which they use every word trick in the book to make it seem like it doesn't say what it says. See: Kitab-i-Aqdas.info
No John, Paul, George, or Ringo in this N.W.O! Baha'u'llah was himself a little shaggy, and some balding men feel they look younger
with a better chance for a mate doing the Yule Brynner thing. But His Unctious Beauty didn't like long hair on his male minions. Since
this is the New World Order for the next thousand years, you're stuck with his decree. Obedience is a very important in the Baha'i Faith.
And all for this?
