Ministry of the Interior,

 

Respectfully, following communication number 27155/J1 of 28 Mehr 1331 [20 October 1952], it is hereby submitted that: The Kerman Gendarmerie Regiment reports that, because of the local disputes and establishment of rural councils, the inhabitants of Rafsanjan are planning to take advantage of the ‘Mourning Period’ and invite the preacher Mr. Ansari, who has gone from the capital to Rafsanjan to conduct preaching, in order to indict him for the preparation of uprising and revolt. That is why it is requested that the mentioned preacher be called back to the capital. This matter has also been consulted upon and approved at the Security Commission. In order to prevent any kind of uprising and disorder, kindly urge, through the relevant authorities, that Mr. Ansari be called to the capital.

 

National Commander of the Gendarmerie,

Brigadier General Alavi-Moghaddam
