From the Police Council

To: Mr. Ayatollah Sayyid[i] Majdoddin Mahallati. Mr. Jamshid Siyavushi, who believes in the Baha’i Faith, has informed the committee that they are being attacked in Yasuj by a small number of people. It is respectfully requested that you kindly send a letter to those people and ask them not to do anything against Islamic law, so that Baha’i people will be able to live there freely.
