Bandar-e Gaz

Mr. Agha Seyyed Ahmad Shahrestani

The Islamic preacher states that obedience to the official government rules is the duty of every Iranian citizen. According to the same rules, marriages must be registered at the offices of a notary public.

To which notary public offices have the Baha’is of Bandar-e-Gaz, Bandar Shah and Gorgan referred for registering their marriages? These notaries public have no records of this kind. Therefore, it becomes clear that these people not only oppose the religion, they also openly oppose the government.
