> with your Assembly:
> "…It is important for you to know that Mr. Hazini withdrew his Baha’i
> membership in December 1996 after expressing his strong dissatisfaction
> with the Baha’i community and our National Spiritual Assembly. Shortly
> after his withdrawal was accepted, Mr. Hazini wrote to the National
> Spiritual Assembly stating that he had not withdrawn from the Baha’i
> Faith but had withdrawn only from the Baha’i community. He provided a
> copy of his letter to the Universal House of Justice…When Mr. Hazini
> received a copy of the Universal House of Justice’s letter, he chose
> not to pursue reinstatement of his Baha’i membership. The last
> information that we had about him was that he had decided to become a
> follower of Sufism."
> At one stage Mr. Hazini was transferred to the United States as a
> Baha’i in good standing. However, in light of the information given by
> the National Spiritual Assembly of the United States we have made the
> necessary changes in our records about his status.

Your Spiritual
> Assembly is advised to be alert to Mr. Nima Hazini’s activities in your
> area, when he comes to Australia to visit his parents, especially his
> association with the Baha’i youth.. Thanking you for your cooperation
> and with loving Baha’i greetings.
