Letter number M/80-7662, dated 10 Dey 1380 [31 December 2001], from the deputy to the president for legal and [Islamic] Consultative Assembly affairs, along with its attachments, regarding the perverse Baha’i sect (copies attached), was presented to the president.  He replied:

“Dr. Rowhani

Dr. Kharrazi

Dr. Mehrpour

Please review and find a solution.  I had previously referred a similar matter to you.  In all cases, I think that it is unacceptable that something that was considered to have been resolved in 1367 [1988-1989] is considered a problem today.”

Seyyed Ali Khatami
