The New Decision

It was mentioned at the gathering of the parliamentarians that the government has seriously decided that, in order to gain the favour of some the religious leaders, [it should] adopt new procedures for dealing with the Baha’is, and this decision is not unrelated to last week’s correspondence between the Ministry of the Imperial Office and Ayatollah Borujerdi.

It was said that it is possible that towards the end of this week, some of those who occupy sensitive posts will be dismissed from their positions.
