The report of the head of the Telegraph Office of Borujen – 23 Tir 1325 [14 July 1946]

Since today coincides with the eve of the birth of His Holiness Hojjat [theTwelfth Imam] and tradesmen of Borujen have been making preparation to celebrate the occasion, a number of Baha’is have insulted the honourable religion of Islam and the Muslims, intending to form a large group against the Muslims. It has been heard that they have also injured a number of Muslims, and as a result of the intervention of the local army garrison and the local gendarmerie, any important sinister mishap has been prevented. At this moment, around four thousand Muslims are gathered at the Telegraph Office and have reported the current situation to the government authorities by telegram. They are also asking this office to bring the matter to the attention of the central [government] authorities.
