Orderliness in Mourning Ceremony

Contrary to some people’s expectations of catching fish in muddy waters, the mourning and bereavement ceremonies were held with considerable order, and in addition, there was peace and stability in the City of Tehran. Due to the concentration of a large population in Qom, a military contingent was sent by Tehran Military Governor’s Office. Orderliness in the city was observed in such a way that many Qom residents sent telegrams to express their gratitude to the military command.

In general, according to the information received, peace and security have been established in all the cities of Yazd, Ardestan, Abadeh, Tabriz, Mazandaran and Gilan, and no demonstrations have taken place in the areas inhabited by the Baha'is.
