The New Programme of the Baha’is

Further to the transfer of the offices of the Tehran Military Governorate to the Haziratu’l-Quds—the former centre of the Baha’is—the activities of this spy gang have continued so far against the Ayatollah Borujerdi and his supporters, as well as General Batmanghlidj. Since last week it has been focused on the military governor’s office and Brigadier General Bakhtiar.

Within the informed circles, it is said that Baha’is, with all their efforts, particularly in this regard, will not achieve much, because the popularity of Brigadier General Bakhtiar and the positive work of the military governorate has gained such a value that it will not be perturbed by these desperate efforts.
