Dismissing Baha’is from Most Offices

Karzar- As per the instructions of Ayatollah Borujerdi—who had given up teaching due to the government’s lack of attention, and, in fact, had secluded himself—a considerable number of the Baha’i employees who had officially presented themselves as Baha’is in the government offices such as the Tobacco Company, were dismissed, [so] the ayatollah again started his teaching activities at the Islamic Theological School of Qom.
