In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

We declare the first day of Farvardin a day of praying at the threshold of the Beneficent God and the Most Powerful Transcendent One and on this day, we beg forgiveness from our God.  Moreover, after the call to prayer we shall [continue to] rise to pray regardless of place or circumstance.

Since some have recently determined to defeat this Islamic Revolution for the benefit of the colonialists; we have 2 suggestions for them, so all of the Iranian nation can be informed of their beliefs:

  1. We ask the highest ranking of the communists to have a television debate with a representative of Muslim nation.
  2. As undoubtedly some of the agents of the Shah and some Baha'is have sided with the communist stance to defeat the revolution, we ask that wherever they want to give a [public] speech, they first provide to a responsible authority their full details and those of their supporters so their number is known and the identity of these suspected elements is established.

Towards a monotheistic classless society, greetings to monotheists and free humans, death to the hypocrites, death to the agents [of imperialism] and the colonialists
