Inform the City Council of Those Roads That Have Been Named After Members of the Baha’ism.

The names of all the streets and alleyways that have been named after members of the Baha’i sec, will be changed.

The Office of Public Relations of the Municipality of Tehran announced in an statement, “All our dear fellow city residents, whose houses are situated in streets and alleyways named after members of the perverse Baha’i sect are requested to immediately inform the Mayor’s Public Relations Office, stating precisely the address of the area, in order that it may be renamed, so that in this way, with the cooperative and responsible attitude of the respected citizens, the face of the city of Tehran will fully represent traditional Islamic concepts.
