Response of the Baha’is to the Esteemed Newspaper of Setareh-e Eslam

In an article that was published in issue number 175 of the honourable newspaper Setareh-e Islam, it is written that a group of the Baha’is have converted to Islam.

In response to this article, a detailed scroll was prepared. The petition was signed on both sides [of the paper], by some people and was addressed to Setareh-e Islam newspaper, and a copy of it was sent to Ajang [newspaper].

They mentioned in this letter that the generality of Baha’is revere the truth of Islam and highly honour and worship the Holy Imams, upon Them be thousands of salutations and greetings.

We apologize for not being able to publish it, since this scroll is addressed to Setareh-e Eslam [newspaper].
