The news telegrammed from Sarvestan indicates that there have been some conflicts between Baha’is and other individuals and that this has led to severe clashes and killings.  Both sides have been engaged in provocation, which will ultimately result in disrupting the order and disturbing the peace.  Please issue an order for this matter to be investigated and necessary action to be taken to maintain order.
