Enclosure -----

 

Mr. Iraj Bashiri - Assistant Professor of the Faculty of Medicine

According to reliable information received from trusted sources, and based on your Baha’i Registration Number [redacted] [issued in] Isfahan, the university’s Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice considers that your connection with the perverse Baha’i sect and your relationship with this hostile group, which is affiliated with international Zionism, are well established. Therefore, to enforce the provisions of Circular number 1/8209, dated 17/8/1359 [8 November 1980] from the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education, it is not possible to continue to employ you at the university, and your services are hereby terminated. From the date of this decision you hold no position and have no legal status at Isfahan University.

Chancellor, Isfahan University

Mohammed-Ali Shah-Zamanian
