Report of Boroujen Postal services, [dated:] 10 Aban 1329 [1 November 1950]

 

Following the report of the fourth of this month [4 Aban 1329 - 26 October 1950], in the past few days there have been conflicts and grudges between the Muslims and the followers of the Baha’i sect and rumours have been heard of some complaints about [the actions of] Captain Hokmi, the Commander of the Gendarmerie Station, for taking sides with the Baha’is.  Both sides are opposing each other aggressively.  Major Mirhadi, the commander of the Regiment of the Gendarmerie of Shahrekord, came in with an [entourage] of four. His positive and selfless attitude prevented any conflicts and kept both sides happy.  It is anticipated that the situation will progress in the best possible way.

 

Safapour [from] Postal Services of Boroujen,

A copy of the above report is submitted for the information of the Ministry of the Interior and I hereby confirm that the Gendarmerie was ordered to prevent any protests and calm the situation and to inform us of the outcome.

 

We will keep you informed of the progress.
