Learn from General Bakhtiar

On Thursday, which coincided with the blessed birthday of His Holiness Mohammad Ibn Abdullah (PBUH), a celebration was held in the military governorate from morning to night.

A large number of people, including learned scholars, professors, guild members, workers, land-lords, and most social classes, attended the celebration in groups and were welcomed and served by General Bakhtiar and other officers of the military governorate.

In our opinion, General Bakhtiar has taken another step towards the realization of the objectives of His Imperial Majesty and the Muslim nation of Iran, based on the glorious celebration of the birth of the great Prophet of Islam. This is truly commendable.
