Mr. Naser Ighani,

Since you personally have admitted that you and your father are both Baha’is, for as long as you follow this perverse and deviant belief, the Farming Board of Gonbad-e Kavus will not be able to grant you permission to cultivate the land and has no alternative but to reject your request to do so.
