Notice and Reminder to Brigadier General Bakhtiar, Military Governor of Tehran

Your praiseworthy attention to the celebration of the blessed birth of the prophet Mohammad in the former Haziratu’l-Quds [Baha'i Centre], which was once the center of the espionage and apostasy, has pleased all Muslims and Shiites, and people await the celebration of the fifteenth day of Sha’ban [28 March 1956] — the blessed day of the birth of Imam-e Zaman[1], may our souls be sacrificed for Him— in this venue by which we once again prove to these wrongdoers and nobodies [Baha’is] who are [sheep] “flock of God”, that they have lost their credibility and they should soon move their stands of recklessness and tawdriness out of this country.  Now that we enter the month of Sha’ban, according to the wish and desire of all Muslims, we remind and call to the attention of the Military Governor that by organizing such celebrations, which are dear to the hearts of all Muslims and Shiites; you may please the Prophet Mohammad.
