The Prohibition of Falsafi from Going to the Pulpit Was Removed

…. And last week, in a meeting that was attended by a high-ranking military official at the house of Ayatollah Behbahani and Mr. Falsafi, the said military official told Mr. Falsafi that there was no obstacle to his going to the pulpit [giving a sermon at the mosque] and he could, as before, continue to speak at the funeral commemoration ceremonies. Although these conversations took place halfway through the month of Ramadan, Mr. Falsafi went to the pulpit at the Mosque of the Shah.
