Falsafi, the Renowned Preacher Denies

Since it was rumoured that government officials had prevented Falsafi from giving a sermon from the pulpit, our correspondent contacted him and asked him [about it]. Mr. Falsafi said, “This rumour is not correct at all, and no government official has prevented me from ascending the pulpit. This rumour has been spread by the opposition”.
