Baha’is Can Undertake Philanthropic Work

Mr. Mani Mehta forwarded to the Guardian a copy of the N.S.A.’s decision informing him that he must either give up his connection with the War Comforts Fund or his Baha’i administrative work. The Guardian feels that there is no objection to a Baha’i undertaking work of a philanthropic or humanitarian nature and at the same time being on elected Baha’i bodies or holding office in them. The War Comforts Fund is in no way contrary to our principles, and there can be no objection to Mr. Mehta’s work in this connection. He hopes that the N.S.A. will clarify this matter and remove any misunderstandings that have arisen.
