Publications by a few newspapers in favour of the Baha’is

During the past days when a severe struggle against the Baha’is of Iran has started, (the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Tehran) succeeded in paying a couple of newspapers to write favourable articles about them. These one or two papers were immediately closed down by the Tehran Mayor’s Office and were introduced to the religious authorities in Iran.
