They [should] be present at work


I am calling from Mahmoodabad of Amol - About two months ago, three employees of the summer Recreation Centre of the Iranian National Petroleum Company were dismissed from work because they are Baha’is.  These individuals have written a letter of grievance to Ayatollah Taleghani [appealing to him to be allowed] to continue their work.  However, despite this, they have not yet been allowed to return to their jobs.
