According to Qazvin newspaper, a certain Haji Nasir, a native of Qazvin, who at the beginning of the Babi claim had considered himself a group leader of that perverse sect, and who apparently had initially gone to Shiraz after the Bab and was involved in the Babi uprising in Mazandaran, and who has a reputation for this, was arrested in Qazvin at the behest of Khosrow Khan, the governor, following a show of audacity and boldness by that perverse sect, and is now imprisoned there.
