Reports from Ravar in Kerman indicate three Baha’i propagators have arrived there and they are busy misguiding people and creating commotion in that region.  Apparently they have been confronted by some residents which led to fighting and the Baha’is of the region are seeking to take advantage of the situation by blaming the employees of the Islamic Propagation Organization in order to defuse the progress which is being made in the region.  We urgently request you to firstly, banish these people from our region, as they are the cause of conflict and disunity and secondly, issue instructions for a thorough investigation to find those who have been responsible for the fighting, because this organization has instructed its members to never exceed the boundaries of rational and scientific arguments.

 

We are looking forward to the results and your response.

 

The Islamic Propagation organization
