Complaint to the United Nations

It has recently been rumoured that a representative of an unofficial sect, which unjustly has not been officially recognized, has referred to the secretary general of the United Nations, Hammarskjöld and complained that minorities in Iran are under intense pressure. Seemingly, Hammarskjöld, has written and asked the Iranian government to reduce its pressures on the minorities.

Some believe that in this way, external restrictions have been imposed on the government; otherwise there would have even been stricter measures against the mentioned sect and their activities would have been stopped.
