Dismissal of Baha’is from Most Offices

As per the instructions of Ayatollah Borujerdi--who had given up teaching due to the government’s lack of attention and in fact had secluded himself--a considerable number of the Baha’i employees who had officially presented themselves as Baha’is in the government offices such as the Tobacco Company, were dismissed and [so] the ayatollah again started his teaching activities at the Islamic Theological School of Qom.
