The Dome of the Haziratu’l-Quds Building Will Be Destroyed

We have been informed that the Military Command plans to destroy the dome of the Haziratu’l-Quds [the Baha’i Centre] so that this building, which is the religious edifice of the perverse Baha’i sect, will be changed from its previous form.

This building was close to the Foreign Insurance Company.
