Translation by Sen’s daily 


Mansour Lahiji, a Bahai from Kerman province who settled in Salmas (West Azerbayjan province) with his family three years ago, was summoned by the Ministry of Intelligence in the city this morning. He was warned there should not be any kind of religious meeting in the city. He had planned to organize a night of poetry, which would include poems in praise of Baha’u’llah, read by himself and his wife. He was warned that if there were poems in praise of the Bahai Faith or its central figures, he would be charged with “war against God” — a charge that carries the death penalty.
