Curious discrepancies in the Montazeri



Here is a better link to Montazeri's site:

This site here claims to reproduce a text of Montazeri's decision with
an affixed date of 14 May 2008:

Curiously, rather than signing off with the hejri date of 18th
Jamadi'l-Ula 1429, it actually signs off with a secular Iranian
shamsi/
solar date of 25th of Ordibehesht 1387. A Grand Ayatollah and Source
of Emulation (marja' taqlid) such as Montazeri, if even a liberal
dissident to the Khomeinist mullocracy, would never sign an opinion
let alone a decision with a secular solar date.

Next, in the discussion section of Montazeri's own site
http://www.amontazeri.com/farsi/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=56&FORUM_ID=4&CAT_ID=3&Topic_Title=%26%231662%3B%26%231575%3B%26%231587%3B%26%231582%3B+%26%231576%3B%26%231607%3B+%26%231662%3B%26%231585%3B%26%231587%3B%26%231588%3B+%26%231607%3B%26%231575%3B%26%231610%3B+%26%231601%3B%26%231602%3B%26%231607%3B%26%231610%3B+%28%26%231581%3B%26%231602%3B%26%231608%3B%26%2316&Forum_Title=%26%231578%3B%26%231575%3B%26%231604%3B%26%231575%3B%26%231585%3B+%26%231575%3B%26%231589%3B%26%231604%3B%26%231740%3B+%26%231662%3B%26%231585%3B%26%231587%3B%26%231588%3B+%26%231608%3B+%26%231662%3B%26%231575%3B%26%231587%3B%26%231582%3B

The webmaster of the discussion logs responds on behalf of Montazeri
in a thread with the identically same note and the identically same
wording as the purported text of the ruling the Haifan Bahais are
making much noise regarding, but the date of the posting is given as
**October 2 2007**. Moreover, the sentence where Montazeri articulates
the fact that the Bahais do not possess rights in fiqh (principles of
Islamic jurisprudence) is gratuitously excised in the May 14th
missive. Clearly there is a gigantic discrepancy and embellishment
happening here, which on the indisputable face of things, is clearly
not initiating from Ayatollah Montazeri or any of his representatives.
