How Will the Cleansing in Ministries Be Done and Who Will be Affected? 

According to the reports received, cleansing in the ministries and government departments will be done through [the investigation of] individuals’ records in the Police Force and the Second Division of the General Staff of the Armed Forces. It has been decided to prepare list of all those who should be cleansed [dismissed] and issue all orders together at once.

Those that are to be cleansed are the ones who have a background of political involvement in extremist groups and parties or have been known to be unlawful.

It is been said that the Baha’i missionaries have also been added to these two groups.
