He was never a Baha'i for him to be a former Baha'i, and thus I'm removing the cat. -- Jeff3000 (talk) 22:18, 1 September 2008 (UTC)
Just for further discussion, unlike Islam, where one is a Muslim if they are born in a Baha'i family, one does not become a Baha'i by being born in a Baha'i family. One has to actively choose to be a Baha'i after they reach the age of majority. See Chehabi, H.E. (2008), "Anatomy of Prejudice", in first = Dominic P.; Fazel, Seena B. (eds.), The Baha'is of Iran: Socio-historical studies, New York, NY: Routledge, pp. 188–189, ISBN0-203-00280-6Missing pipe in: |editor= (help); More than one of |editor-last= and |editor= specified (help) for more info. The Iranica statement clearly states that while he was born in a Baha'i family, he has had no affiliation with the religion, and thus he was never a Baha'i.

Prof Yarshater is not "one" of Iranica's editors. He is the "Founder and General Editor".
Also, there have been so far more than 1,300 contributing specialists, not just 300.
His body of work is much, much greater than what is listed here.
Can someone help by telling me how to edit the intro?

In the categories section, there are "Former Bahá'ís" and "Iranian atheists" but I can't find any reference for that and it is not mentioned in the article. so I think it should be erased until there will be a reference to it. --SerendiPity (talk) 15:44, 19 August 2019 (UTC)
