In the Name of God


Esteemed President of Tabriz Lawyers, Mr. Farhoudinia

We hereby submit that since 1390 [2011], the dead corpses belonging to us, the Baha’is, have not been buried in the Vadi-e Rahmat [cemetery] in Tabriz, and the officials of the Vadi-e Rahmat are sending [our] dead to the City of Miandoab. We are also Iranian citizens and should enjoy our citizenship rights. We request that you and government officials allocate a plot of land around Tabriz for the burial of the dead Baha’is.


With gratitude,

Manavieh Hakimi
