[It is[1]] impossible to expect results from the irregular actions of Colonel Amanpour, the military Commander in charge of investigations into religious matters in Abadeh, and especially of respected members of the association of residents overseeing the election, who have been, as ordered [by Colonel Amanpour] in solitary detention with no visitors allowed for two days.  No sign or evidence or documents pointing to their interference in the religious affairs have been [produced].  We are [desperately] unable and incapable to explain about situation here. The governmental departments are meant to only supervise the matter [but they do not], [please] do not ask the government offices to clarify what has occurred, until [you have been able to establish] the truth about the events and discover [whether] we poor Muslims are guilty of any crime.  We await urgent action and attention from the respected authorities.
