Ministry of the Interior,


Report number 1322 from the Police Force of Zahedan states the following:

The Police Force of Zabol reports that some religious arguments have taken place recently between the Muslims and the Baha’is of that city. The clergy had planned to meet with the Baha’is at a mosque and have a debate with them. However, in accordance with a directive from the Office of the Governorate, such a meeting has been prevented and this issue is resolved.  The Police Force of Zabol has been instructed that based on the issued training, they should strongly prevent the Baha’is from engaging in any open promotion [of their belief]. This report is presented for your information.
