The Gate, Founder of the Babi Faith and Forerunner to Baha'u'llah. He was shot to death with 750 rifles. They had to do it twice because the first time they tried, he warned them that, "Not until I have said all that I wish to say, can any earthly power silence me, though all the world be armed against me, yet shall they be powerless to deter me from fulfilling to the last word, my intention!" After they fired, when the smoke cleared, The Bab had disappeared. and was found 2 hours later, in his jail cell, finishing his final tablet, when he was done, he said, "I have finished my talk with my secretary, now you may kill me."
