His Excellency the Prime Minister (may his honour last)

A cable from Kerman Province reports that Seyyed Mohammad Kermanshahani, known as Sultan al-va‘ezin [king of the preachers], has been spreading insinuations from the pulpit in Sirjan about the Zoroastrian and Baha’i religions, since the first of Muharram this year. The recipients of such insults have filed complaints. The local security office was instructed to exile him from Sirjan.
