What did the readers of Setareh-e Eslam say about the crimes of Baha’is??

In his detailed letter, Mr. Mohammad Saiedi thanks the Muslim shah of Iran, the illustrious religious authorities, the journalists, the government, and the law enforcement agencies for their actions, which are accepted by God, in disrupting the systems of betrayal, espionage, and religious fabrication of the perverse Baha’i sect. He then continues that it is not enough to ruin the dirty nests of the Baha’is; they should be expelled from the jobs they hold in sensitive offices, especially the Ministry of Education. For example, the Ministry of Education had ordered Khuzestan’s education department to provide the list of its Baha’i employees because the heresy and Baha’ism of the head of education in Ahvaz had reached saturation; in reality, instead of providing the list of the Baha’i traitors, he had introduced the Muslim employees and servants.
