The Esteemed Head of the Department of Education and Endowments of Kashan

Recently, the perverse Baha’i sect has established a school in Kashan by the name of Vahdat-e-Bashar [Unity of Mankind] and the unaware children of Muslims who go to the school are being morally corrupted. This is inconsistent with Islam, and may cause uprising by the Muslims and the generality of people, thereby creating troubles. It is the duty of the respected bureau to prevent such corrupt practices, especially because, as it appears, they did not have the licence from the esteemed government. As a follower of Islam, it is for the honourable head of the department to close the school and have the Muslims gratefully praying.
