His Imperial Majesty!

In this age where the fame of the royal justice has shaken the foundations of the wicked, by the incitement of one preacher, twelve of our co-religionists, on the pretext of being Baha’i, were murdered in Jahrom within the span of eight hours, their properties were plundered, their houses destroyed and their families dispersed. Come to our rescue.
