Occupation of the Haziratu’l-Quds [Baha’i Centre] by Security Forces

Last week, further to harsh speeches by Mr. Falsafi, the preacher, against the Baha’is and their teaching activities in Iran, the security forces occupied the Haziratu’l-Quds, the gathering place of the Baha’is, by order of the military commander, and a notice was published stating that from now on promotion of the Baha’i [Faith] in Iran would be diligently suppressed.
