In accordance with the directive of the Islamic Consultative Assembly, it is prohibited to hire and/or employ followers of the Baha’i sect in governmental departments, organizations, or companies. As there are no documents in your personnel file to confirm your adherence to one of the officially-recognized religions of the country, you are accordingly requested to complete the form provided below and forward it urgently to the Personnel Office of this company so as to remove any doubt and misgiving [regarding your religious beliefs].

With thanks,
