Destruction of the Baha’i Centre

Sari - On 5 Khordad 1334 [ 27 May 1955], the gendarmerie and police forces from Sari went to the Village of Mahforujak, 12 km from Sari, where the gathering place of the Baha’is is located, and destroyed their centre with the help of the Muslim people, while Muslims were observing this good and God-pleasing action, and rejoiced.

The Baha’is of the village watched the destruction of their [religious] centre while shedding bitter tears.
