The Governorate of Shahroud,

With reference to letter number 2285 of 15 Aban 1322 [7 November 1943], containing the report of the Shahroud Gendarmerie about the propagation and open presentation of the Baha’is in Mayamey, it is stated that if their behaviour and activities are against the local order, they should, of course, be seriously prevented, and possibly Ataollah Sangsari should be warned to abstain from such propagation, and if he disobeys, he should surely be prosecuted.

The Minister of the Interior
