True Bahá'ís follow the true Badí calendar

If anyone needed evidence that the "UHJ" that now sits in Haifa, Israel, is a false entity without legitimate authority, just look at what they have done to the Badí calendar. They have brazenly abandoned the guidance of the first Guardian about the calendar and have adopted falsehood as their standard.

In 2014, their so-called "Universal House of Justice" selected Tehran as the location to which the date of the vernal equinox is to be fixed, thereby "unlocking" the Badí calendar from the Gregorian calendar. Incredibly, this false "UHJ" decided that the birthdays of the Báb and Bahá'u'lláh will be celebrated on "the first and the second day following the occurrence of the eighth new moon after Naw-Rúz" (using astronomical tables) and fixed the dates of the Bahá'í Holy Days in the Bahá'í calendar, standardizing dates for Bahá'ís worldwide effective at sunset on March 20, 2015. The Birth of the Bab and the Birth of Baha'u'llah this year will be celebrated by the false Bahá'ís on November 13th and 14th respectively, changing it from October 20th and November 12th.

As our living Guardian notes in his response to this scheme, this action goes directly against the express guidance given by Shoghi Effendi. True Bahá'ís follow the guidance of Shoghi Effendi. False Bahá'ís do not.

The true Bahá'ís, those who follow the guidance of the Guardians, continue to follow the Badí calendar as directed by the first Guardian:

Holy Days (unless otherwise noted, observed beginning at sundown on the evening before):

March 21 - Naw-Rúz Bahá'í New Year (festive)
April 21 - First Day of the Ridván Festival (festive) 3pm on 4/21
April 29 - Ninth Day of the Ridván Festival (festive)
May 2 - Twelfth Day of the Ridván Festival (festive)
May 23 - Declaration of the Báb (festive) 2 hours after sunset on 5/22
May 29 - Ascension of Bahá'u'lláh (solemn)
July 9 - Martyrdom of the Báb (solemn) noon on 7/9
October 20 - Birth of the Báb (festive)
November 12 - Birth of Bahá'u'lláh (festive)
November 26 - Day of the Covenant (work not suspended)
November 28 - Ascension of 'Abdu'l-Bahá (work not suspended)

Nineteen Day Feast (observed beginning at sundown on the evening before):

1. Bahá - Splendour - 21 March
2. Jalál - Glory - 9 April
3. Jamál - Beauty - 28 April
4. 'Azamat - Grandeur - 17 May
5. Núr - Light - 5 June
6. Rahmat - Mercy - 24 June
7. Kalimát - Words - 13 July

15. Masá'il - Questions - 12 December
16. Sharaf - Honour - 31 December
17. Sultán - Sovereignty - 19 January
18. Mulk - Dominion - 7 February
Ayyám-i-Há February 26-March 1
19. 'Alá - Loftiness - 2 March - Nineteen Day Fast

As time passes, it becomes more and more clear and obvious how false are the Bahá'ís under the organization of the false "UHJ" and how the Orthodox Bahá'ís are following the true Cause of God.
