Esteemed Khorasan Gendarmerie District,

Greetings and salutations to the pure souls of the martyrs of Islam!

According to the request and referral of Mr. Nosratollah Ahmadian, who claims that Mrs. Zivar Ahmadian belonged to the perverse Baha’i sect and passed away on 10 Mordad 1365 [1 August 1986], as the burial of the deceased in the Muslim cemetery is against the religious decrees, please order, in compliance with the relevant criteria, that the body be buried by the applicant in a remote place without the installation of specific signs and symbols.
