What is happening in Qom?

News from Qom received here and there indicate that His Highness Ayatollah Borujerdi is utterly distraught because of the disrespect and disregard shown towards the clergy. A number of religious scholars have recently come to Qom from Tabriz, Qazvin and other cities and expressed their concerns in regard to the recent event in Shiraz.

News of the God-pleasing action of the Muslims in Shiraz and the destruction of the Kaaba [Holy Shrine] of the Baha’is delighted the Muslims nationwide; they eagerly await the actions of the government to denounce the perverse Baha’i sect.
