On the fourth of the current month, a series of handwritten night letters, printed with pencil and carbon paper without address [was prepared] by [some] individuals.  The letters were distributed in the city, inviting people to [join] the Baha’i faith. They were immediately collected, and the [identity] of the author was sought. On the sixth day of the current month, again, a couple of night-leaflets, containing a few pages, were distributed in town, which called the Muslims to rise up against the Baha’is, and those were collected.

He was arrested while engaged in the act of posting the leaflets, and has been interrogated. The case is currently under investigation by the prosecutor’s office, and the above-mentioned person has been detainedHence, for information, the matter is reported.
