TRANSLATION
Today the British Representative, on behalf of the
Political Resident A senior ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul General) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Residency. in the Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. or on behalf of the
Admiral, of the said inauspecious Government, gave what he
thought to be an assurance to the Iranians residing at Dubai
to live here peacefully and added that any one who spoke
against the Government would be duly punished. From this
statement it is understood to what extent the criminal policy
of this accursed Government has reached, because, on the one
hand the said Government has overrun the free and neutral
country of Iran and, on the other, it shows its buttered
tongue. If we were to judge this from a just point of view,
it would be seen that the friendship of the British Government
is just like the friendship of a bear. Their only and entire
aim is to abolish small nations and to overthrow the Islamic
world. The Iranian Nation is not satisfied with this ominousj
blood thirsty, godless, dog worshipping, butter-tongued
British Government and would not allow itself to be deceived;
and the Iranian guarantors shall not refrain from their
activities which they have in view and shall soon bring them
into action. It is essential and Incumbent on all Iranians
not to allow themselves to be hoodwinked by the devilish play
of the accursed British but every body should come forward to
defend his life and, when the opportunity occures, to join
hands with those who have undertaken (the liberation of their
country). Hurrah!
Poetical quotation:-
M We shall destroy your army and raise
to the ground your fort”.
Sd. A number of sacrificing youth.
