The Instigation of Agitators to Combat the Baha’is Was Prevented and This Battle Will Be Carried Out Through Legal Processes

Further to processes [illegible] and actions carried out to combat the perverse Baha’i sect and the renewal of their activities, a number of disruptive elements tried to take advantage of the situation and cause disturbances and turmoil in Tehran and other cities.  However, through the care of the military government forces of Tehran, the disruptors’ plans bore no fruit.  For maintaining security and peace in all cities, a cabinet meeting with the presence of His Majesty, the King of Kings, took place. Appropriate decisions were taken and necessary directives were communicated to all cities.

Through the decisions made, any tension or disturbances to the public security will be prevented, so that the cabinet and the parliament, through the legal process, will continue the combat against the anti-national Baha’i sect and gradually clean up the government offices and agencies of their presence.
