Encounter of Brigadier General Bakhtiar and Ayatollah Borujerdi

According to the information, Brigadier General Bakhtiar, the military governor of Tehran, made a trip to Qom last week, and during his two meetings with His Honour Ayatollah Borujerdi, discussed the issue of the speeches of the preachers in the months of Muharram and Safar. It was decided that the preachers of Tehran and other cities would refrain from preaching their sermons emotionally so that [there would not be negative] consequences.
