Meeting of the Representatives of the Jews and Zoroastrians With Falsafi

Moradaria, the representative of the Jews, and Arbab Rostam Kiv, the representative of the Zoroastrians of Iran to the National Consultative Assembly, each met separately with the preacher Mr. Falsafi for consultation, at the home of Falsafi, at Ray Street. Falsafi told our correspondent of this meeting: “The representatives of the religious minorities pledged to sign Seyyed Ahmad Safaeis’ plan [for outlawing Baha’ism] and when consulting in the National Consultative Assembly, they should make statements from behind the tribune of the National Consultative Assembly, rejecting the claims of the Baha’is.

The Jewish and Zoroastrian representatives ate only sweets instead of soft drinks and tea to observe customs (Muslims’ not consorting with followers of other religions).
