The Story of the Relationship between Ayatollah Kashani and Navvab Safavi; from Their First Day of Acquaintance until Today.

Kashani and the Baha’is

We undertook an investigation into Mr. Kashani’s wealth, and it was discovered that, in addition to his family-owned residence located in Pamanar, he owns a house in Najaf, which has not yet been surveyed to determine its boundaries, and for which a deed of ownership has not yet been issued.  Kashani’s illness is the same heart disease.  His posture is in no way bent, and all his teeth are intact.  Recently, one of his teeth had a cavity, which was repaired by Dr. George Vansan.  As stated by General Azmoudeh, a severe illness does not seem likely, and he probably will not fall ill.  If any illness happens, Colonel Dr. Moghbel and Colonel Dr. Tadayon will immediately start treating him.  One of the amazing things is that Kashani wished for a long time to see the Hazíratu’l-Quds [Baha’i Centre], and if the readers remember, during Ashura of 1327 [1948/1949], he set out at noon, along with a large group of mourners, to occupy the Haziratu’l-Quds.  However, at the northern entry to the Mokhber Doleh crossing, the military forces blocked his way and prevented him from moving further.  In any case, his wishes were finally realized, and that was when he was driven to the military headquarters in a Pontiac, and after a one-hour stop at the place where the Haziratu’l-Quds was previously located, he went to the military court to be detained.
