Enclosure ......


The respectable residents of Jousheghan,


We are aware that, both the establishment of the Islamic Republic in our country Iran and the principles of holy Islam support everyone’s right to live [freely and] away from any plotting and destruction.

Therefore this means that in the Islamic Republic all minority groups are free to live and to be active [but must be] away from plotting. The minority group of Baha’ism should also be free from any aggression and transgression.

May God assist the entire nation in progressing the holy divine goals of Islam.
