In the event that you observe in an [educational] institution that a group of Baha’i students are spreading propaganda for their ideology, the following responses, which have been approved by a high official in the Ministry, are recommended:

 

  1. In the event of propagandizing, they should be expelled.
  2. Otherwise, those concerned should be required to sign an undertaking that they will not engage in spreading any non-Islamic propaganda.  Moreover, efforts should be made not to have groups of Baha’is in any one educational institution.

 

In view of the foregoing, and for your information, enclosed are three pages of suggestions made by the Student Eligibility Evaluation representative from Isfahan and a subsequent letter from the Ministry, for action that may be taken in similar cases.
