Hands in Favour of the Baha’is Are at Work in Iran

After the occupation of the Haziratu’l-Quds by the military authorities, it was prohibited to send pictures of its occupation abroad. Regardless of the instructions, immediately, three days after the takeover of the Haziratu’l-Quds, this subject was published with full descriptions in the American newspapers.

Although all the prominent and other Baha’is are under [careful] observation, it has become certain that in Tehran there are other hidden non-Baha’i hands that are active on behalf of this perverse sect. It is said that the military authorities are trying to identify these hidden hands.

It is public knowledge that the arrest of five individuals, whose story is being mentioned in this same issue, is not unrelated to the subject, as it is said that some of the pictures regarding the occupation of the Haziratu’l-Quds have been mailed abroad by these same individuals.
