Last week’s discussions with Ayatollah Boroujerdi

There were rumours circulating this week that some of the dignitaries have been travelling between Tehran and Qom and there have been discussions and deliberations during these trips about the views of His Holiness Ayatollah Boroujerdi.

Spiritual circles in the country insist that the bill for the persecution of Baha’is of Iran be prepared by the parliament and tabled to the National Consultative Assembly as soon as possible. Government authorities support this view of the spiritual circles and plan to prepare and submit the bill to parliament within the next few days.
