Baha’is’ Haziratol-Quds[1] is Insured by the Americans

According to the information [received], the Haziratol-Quds is insured with the American insurance companies for [US$] 100,000; however, the government, through a bill, will take ownership and expropriate it.

The Honourable Ayatollah Boroujerdi did not agree for a mosque to be built in its place. He said it was better to demolish the existing building and build a hospital and charity organisations in its place. [In any case], it is understood that the Baha’is have asked the insurance companies for the insurance compensation.
