Telegram from Nehru

The Baha’is living outside of Iran have clung to all means available to them and have stated some things about the situation of the Baha’is in Iran. They have requested that the heads of various European and Asian countries send direct telegrams to urge good treatment of the Baha’is in Iran.

A similar request was submitted to Mr. Nehru, the prime minister of India, and they have spread the news in Tehran that Mr. Nehru has sent a very lengthy telegram about them to the government of Iran.
