In the Name of God

The Honourable Senior Advisor of the Municipality, Mr. Davani

Subject: Request for a piece of land for the cemetery

With greetings and respect, I wish to inform you that we are requesting a piece of land within the municipal boundaries of the City of Ahvaz, to be allocated as Baha’i cemetery, for the purpose of burying the deceased members of this community.

Since one of the members of the Baha’i community passed away on 22 Shahrivar 1393 [13 September 2014] and should be buried as soon as possible, we are requesting an urgent decision to be made in this regard. As you are aware, the former Baha’i cemetery has been closed down by the Municipal Council and no burial permit has been issued for that cemetery.


The prayers of our community will follow the path of the benefactors.
