A telegram has arrived from Abadeh, bearing the signatures of Morteza and Reza Kowsar and a number of other individuals, and dated 17 Farvardin 1322 [6 April 1943]. They have complained about the behaviour and actions of the people toward the Baha’i sect in the villages of Cheghad, Bahman, and Eqlid. A copy of the telegraph has also been sent to the Ministry of the Interior. Please order that the details of the situation be obtained from the local Mayor’s Office and communicate the findings to us.
