Restitution of Bahá’í Properties in Persia

Rejoice announce yet another victory won in cradle of Faith, swiftly following crushing defeat recently sustained by Covenant-breakers in Holy Land. National Hazíratu’l-Quds in Ṭihrán has been returned, completing thereby the restitution of Bahá’í properties seized at the instigation of traditional enemies in Bahá’u’lláh’s native land.

[Cablegram, June 8, 1957]
