Why Did the Head of the Propaganda Office Visit Ayatollah Borujerdi?

As a result of an unsigned circular stating that the present head of the central Publications and Propaganda Office is also a Baha’i, Dr. Parviz Adl, the head of the mentioned entity, paid a hand-kissing visit to Ayatollah Borujerdi in Qom in order to deny such rumours through his actions. The organization’s deputy, an employee related to His Holiness Ayatollah Behbahani, and Mr. Sobhi Mohtadi—a very staunch opponent of the Baha’i sect—all accompanied Dr. Adl to this meeting.
