Iran President Ahmadinejad on the UN General Assembly – Press conference answered to media representative questions, a question was from Voice of America, Vafa Mostaghim. he asked:

"You always start remarks with the respect to the divine prophets and that's very respectable. One of the divine prophets who has the largest religious minority followers after Sunnis in Iran, are the Baha’is, we receive letters to the United Nations that they should followed from government, persecuted and their social progress should prevented, and Baha’i students too.

President Ahmadinejad replied:

"When we talk about divine religions the Jewish groups, their prophet was the holy Moses, and Christians the Christ and Muslims the prophet of Islam. Can you tell me who the divine prophet of the religion you mentioned appeared and was revealed to and when? Exactly, did you have a name? Good luck, thank you!"
