Esteemed President of the Tabriz Bar Association,



I, Sahand Masoudian, as a Baha’i citizen living in Tabriz, hereby submit that we have been barred from burial of our dead in the Vadi-e Rahmat [cemetery] for the last five years.

Therefore, I request your assistance and that of the esteemed officials to acquire a piece of land in order to fulfil this citizenship right.


With much appreciation,

Sahand Masoudian
