From Tabriz; decoded confidential telegram from Mr. Dadvar
Office of the Prime Minister
An individual known as Sheikh Reza in Ardabil, has made derogatory remarks about the Baha’is from his pulpit. I ordered him to be brought to Tabriz and I tried to advise him [to refrain doing so] but I realised that [my effort] was not effective.
I asked him to stay temporarily in Tabriz, until the end of Ramadan, so that he does not become the cause of unrest in Ardabil. 436[?].
Dadvar, 12 Shahrivar 1323 [3 September 1944]
