He was a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is of Colombia and a Continental Counselor before being appointed to the International Teaching Centre (ITC).
Even after getting elected to the Bahá'í apex body – the Universal House of Justice, Dr. Arbab was not satisfied and wanted to get his full family on the Apex bodies and tried to control the Faith from all angles.
Since his election/selection in the Bahá'í Apex Body, he started his task of cleansing the Bahá'í organization from the Iranian Bahá'ís having Mullah culture. Like Hushmand Fatheazam and Ali Nakhjawani.
Slowly and steadily he took control of UHJ by introducing Ruhi culture. He saw that any one opposing Ruhi agenda is shown the way out of the Bahá'í Faith. These tentacles of Ruhi culture spread out throughout the world and resulted in expulsion of many devoted Bahá'ís like Feroz Anaraki, Jamshed Fozdar, Fredrick Glaysher, Juan Cole etc.
Mr. Arbab went to launch his own Ruhi brigade with Firaydoun Javaheri, Payman Mohajer and very recently Shahriar Razavi; these three Iranians are well known for the pro Ruhi culture and his own son in Law Mr. Gustavo Correa.
The Ruhi books are only developed for name sake without much matter and content and even after its introductions in many countries ENTRY BY TROOPS which was supposed to happen has not taken place and instead in many cases there is MASS EXIT FROM FAITH.
Mr. Arbab after hijacking the Bahá'í Faith finally ruined a massive Baha'i Encyclopedia that cost the faith several hundred thousand dollars; He introduced inaccuracies, and delayed its publication indefinitely. Arbab is not a professional editor and knows nothing about making an encyclopedia, and never even bothered to learn Persian. The Baha'is got extremely annoyed at him for putting his fingers into something he knows nothing about and ruining it, wasting enormous amounts of money and bullying and insulting the previous devoted Baha'i editors as crass materialist humanists?
Mr. Arbab introduced spying and shunning culture in Bahá'í Faith. He shamelessly bullied and threatened Bahá'ís Due to his arrogant behavior many Bahá'ís were hearted broken and left the faith? Lives were destroyed over this idiocy.
In furtherance of his goal to control the UHJ and Bahá'í Faith Mr. Arbab created FUNDAEC in early 1970s within a worldwide program called at the time "Education for Development." as a Bahá’í-inspired organization, According to Gustav Correa, director of FUNDAEC in 2002, it was originally inspired by a quotation from Bahá'u'lláh - "Baha'u'llah talks about man as 'a mine rich in gems of inestimable value.' He says that 'education can, alone; because it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom.These is all cheating the FUNADEC was created to control the Bahá'ís and Bahá'í Faith. It is now headed by Mr. Gustav Correas. Is it a coincidence that Gustav Correas is the close relative of Dr.Arbab and now member of the UHJ?
FUNDAEC finally took control of Socio Economic development in Bahá'í Faith (OSED).
Social and Economic Development
The Baha'i Office of Social and Economic Development, an agency of the Baha'i World Centre in Haifa, Israel, monitors the progress of development programs worldwide, provides advice and support, and facilitates collaborative undertakings with like-minded organizations.
Efforts to promote social and economic development play an important role at the local and national levels of the Baha'i community. Most of these take the form of small-scale educational, health, economic and environmental projects.
These projects range from simple tutorial schools to college-level courses and from village agricultural and health education projects to participation in major reforestation programs. The majority of these projects operate at the grassroots level, relying on local resources and coordination.
Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP)
The Bahá'ís say that there should be a dialogue of Science and Religion, and their Relationship. It was precisely with these thoughts as they claim that the Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity, known as ISGP, took up as its initial task the promotion of a discourse on science, religion, and development. ISGP,
Very surprisingly Dr. Haleh Arbab the daughter of Dr. Farzam Arbab is the Director of the Institute for Studies in Global Prosperity (ISGP).
She was born in Iran, educated in the United States, and lived in Colombia, South America from 1982 to 2005. In Colombia she worked with the Foundation for the Application and Teaching of the Sciences (FUNDAEC), and from 1995 to 2005 served as Rector of Centro Universitario de Bienestar Rural, a Colombian university she helped found in 1988. Currently Dr. Haleh Arbab lives in Haifa, Israel, since June 2005
Today Bahá'í Faith is controlled by the RUHI BRIGADE, Dr. Arbab and his family.
Unless the Bahá'ís wake up to this reality soon, it will be too late and few members of Arbabs family will be in the UHJ and probably we will have to rename it as UHA i.e. "Universal House of Arbab".
Dr. Arbab has made the Bahá'í Faith a family run business and his Bread and Butter.
