This Baha’i Defrauded a Young Man

Mr. Ziaollah Ravesh writes from Arak that the head of personnel of Tehran’s Post and Telegraph defrauded him in conspiracy with another person by embezzling cash from him, and is now demanding its return.

Dear Sir, as you have mentioned, campaigning against Baha’is is an imperative duty, an obligation of any Muslim that should never stop, especially by the young generation, and we extend our support, as much as possible, to this worthy cause alongside our honourable citizens and Muslim brothers.   However, in order for our endeavour to bring results, it is necessary that you send us any evidence you might have, or could obtain, in support of this person’s being a Baha’i, so as to allow us to pursue your complaint, and, God willing, attain a favourable outcome.   

Your heartfelt religious sentiments are highly commendable and deserve all kinds of benefaction and brotherly support.

Wishing you joy and success.
