Respectfully, please find attached the request of Mr. Iraj Nourdel, regarding the prevention of burial of the dead in the area of Tabriz and Vadi-e Rahmat [cemetery] due to belief in a religion other than the holy religion of Islam. Kindly instruct decisions to be taken to resolve the problem of these citizens.
