For the Funeral of Shoghi Effendi

The passing of Shoghi Effendi, the leader of the Baha’is of the world, has led to the formation of memorial gatherings and services in Iran.

We have heard that some prominent people from Iran have also gone to attend his funeral service.

The travelers were from different ranks and groups and one or two of them are very big capitalists of Iran.
