According to reliable information received from trusted sources, and based on your Baha’i Registration number [redacted] of Jolfa, the Committee for the Promotion of Virtues and the Prevention of Vices of the university considers that your connection with the perverse Baha’i sect and your relationship with this defiant group, which is affiliated with international Zionism, is well established. Therefore, so as to enforce the provisions of Circular number 1/8209, dated 17 Aban 1359 [8 November 1980] of the Ministry of Culture and Higher Education, the continuation of your work at the university is not permissible and your services are hereby terminated; as at the date of this decision you hold no position and have no rights at Isfahan University.
