Mr. Governor General of the Tenth Province[1]

 

With the utmost respect, we hereby submit the original letter of Ebrahim Eshraghi-Varnamkhasti (one of the Baha’is of Varnamkhast) which contains the details of the nightly attacks of the locals on his house and his getting beaten up by them.

 

Because this Assembly is informed of the background, and this kind of dispute could possibly cause misunderstanding due to its religious nature and [ultimately] cause unrest and trouble in the region,

we hereby request that you arrange that this matter receive a thorough investigation and that justice be served to him, and prevent any action that could possibly cause a major unrest and disorder.

 

Respectfully yours,

On behalf of the Secretary [signature],
