A Letter

According to the information obtained privately by our correspondent, two weeks ago, His Honour Ayatollah Borujerdi advised the government to prevent the entry of this drink into the market, because the producer of Pepsi Cola is a Baha’i.

Apparently, later on, sufficient explanations were given to His Honour the Ayatollah regarding this matter.
