About: Disruptive [University] Students


Recently, religious fanatic students in some universities and colleges of Tehran have been engaged in activities to boycott Pepsi Cola under the pretext that the owners of the Zamzam Company, the producer of the aforementioned drink, are Baha’is and [they] are associating the contractors of some of the student’s cafeterias with Baha’is.  Therefore under these pretexts they have initiated disruptive actions and interrupted the order within the University restaurants and classrooms.


Please issue instructions for taking appropriate actions to identify the disruptive students and neutralize their activities and report the results of your operations to this organisation.
