95, A Baha’i Name That Still Remains in Gonbad

Store 95, which is named after a number [related to] Baha’i beliefs, is still active in Gonbad.

According to Atrak, “A few months ago, a store in Gonbad with the name of 95 was used in the form of clothing production [sic], and the numerical name that is chosen for this store is used for Baha’i beliefs.

If this is true, which it is, it is not clear why the officials of Gonbad City do not make an effort to change the name of this store.

This is while the reaction to some other people’s activities―the names chosen for their jobs, etc.―is very strong.

Are the authorities afraid of the Baha’is?

It should be noted that this store still operates under the same name.
