Islamic Revolutionary Central Committee of Shahr-e Rey and Suburban Committees

Since all cemeteries situated on the Mesgarabad Road have been relocated and the cemetery of Baha’is also must be moved to another place, and according to the request of the Baha’is for the establishment of a new cemetery, by the authority and leadership of His Holiness Imam Khomeini, may God prolong his grace, His Holiness Ayatollah Montazeri, and the Office of the Prime Minister, I, Seyed Ali Ghayouri, have been appointed as the representative of the imam. Permission is therefore granted to them to establish a cemetery in Kabirabad, Kahrizak, in the region of Shahr-e Rey, on the land owned by them, to bury their dead, and no one should be allowed to harass them.  In addition, Mr. Soltani, a trusted clergyman in the region of Shahr-e Rey, has been appointed as the local supervisor to oversee and manage issues related to the land and the establishment of the cemetery. May God guide everyone to the right path.
