Dismissal of Baha’is from Departments

A large number of Baha’is who worked in organisations such as the National Tobacco Company have been dismissed from work because they have officially declared themselves to be Baha’is.

Edalat: Thank God that no Baha’is work in this city’s Offices specially the Finance and Education [department], because we would have to dismiss them from work inevitably!!
