Expulsion of Baha’is from Most Government Offices

A large number of Baha’is who had identified themselves as Baha’is were terminated from government offices, including the Tobacco Company, according to the directives of Ayatollah Borujerdi—who had [prior to this government’s action] abandoned his teaching work due to the failure of government [to act] and had secluded himself; [when his directives were finally followed] the ayatollah returned to teaching at Qom Seminary.
