Mr. Haj Seyyed Noureddin was exiled to Tehran

 

We have already reported that, owing to the Security Council of Shiraz’s finding that Haj Seyyed Noureddin was the main culprit in the Shiraz incidents, [this council] ordered his exile to another part of the south of the country.

 

According to the information received, His Majesty the Shah, being informed of this decision, as a [gesture of] respect to the spiritual leaders, ordered “not to send him into exile, and even if his stay in Shiraz is considered unwise, invite him to come to Tehran for a while”.

 

The sudden entrance of Haj Seyyed Noureddin into Tehran is related to these events and he is currently residing in the house of Sardar Fakhr Hekmat[1], the chief of the parliament.
