Head of Ashayeri Training College:

According to information received, Mr Hojatollah Fahandej, plumber, has been dismissed from work solely for being a Baha’i. Until further notice from Imam Khomeini and pursuant to his instructions, religious minorities are free to continue their employment provided they do not cause corruption. Accordingly, based on the aforementioned directive, Mr Fahandej can continue to work, provided he works only as a plumber. [You are directed to] take necessary action in the event his wages are in arrears.
