Copy of the letter from Shaykh Ali-Akbar Sharifol Vaezin [Noble Preacher)


Esteemed Office of the Melli [National] Bank, Abadeh

According to Article 2 of the Public Services Employment Act, Baha’i individuals are not eligible to serve in the government. One of the employees of the Bank, whose [affiliation to] Baha’ism is well-known and proven to me, is named Asgarpour. It is, therefore, necessary for you as a highly Islamic supervisor and in obedience to Article 2 of the [Act], to terminate the employment of Asgarpour. May your days of glory continue.


Signed, Sharifol Vaezin
