Dismiss the Members of the Perverse Baha’i Sect from Government Departments

 

With the destruction of the dome of Haziratu’l-Quds[1], [it is important that] the country’s sensitive financial and employment [operations] within the government departments and organizations, are not in the hands of those elements who are “spreading corruption on earth” or those of “the perverse Baha’i Sect” as the divine goals of those who fought for independence, the Constitutionalists and the Muslims will not be achieved. This is because these apostate and heretics will continue with their traitorous activities.

The best way of combating this perverse sect is to throw out these low and dirty elements from the government departments.  The Muslim nation of Iran requests that these elements to be eliminated from the government departments and organizations.
