In the Name of God,


Mrs. Talat Bidhan,

Since, as stipulated in the Constitution, one of the conditions of employment—whether in the past or at present—has always been adherence to one of the religions that are officially recognized in the country (Islam, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, or Christianity), and owing to your confession that you belong to the perverse Bahá’í sect with Baha’i membership card [redacted], [consequently] as instructed by this ministry, you are hereby dismissed from employment at the Department of Education.

Director, Department of Education, - Karaj,

Rashidiyan [Signature]
