A Number of Clergy Have Come to Tehran from the Cities and It is planned to hold a Clerical Conference.

A private [source of] news reports that lots of clergy and religious scholars from various cities, such as Tabriz and northern cities, have come to Tehran. It is said that the reason for the congregation of the gentlemen in Tehran is the rumours around the travelling of His Honour Ayatollah Borujerdi, since it has recently been said that His Holiness Ayatollah Borujerdi plans to leave Iran for good and settle down in the City of Najaf.

The aforementioned religious leaders visited Ayatollah Borujerdi in Qom, and it is said that he might also organize a conference about the Baha’is in either Tehran or Qom.
