In the Name of God


His Honour Governor General of Shahrekord,

Peace be upon you,


Respectfully I am informing you that some days ago, a group of armed individuals led by some outlaws of the previous regime, surrounded the area of the Baha’i populated village- (in the vicinity of Kata and within the District of Boyer-Ahmad) and some individuals had come from Ahvaz. By their own statement, [they came to] investigate, but Yasuj has prevented them. Now the Baha’is have taken refuge with us. Please refer this matter to the authorities and let us know what we should do.


Peace be upon those who follow the right path,

Mostafa Vadaipour
