10. Hand of the Cause Mr. Jalál Kházeh


Mr. Kházeh represented the Guardian, Shoghi Effendi, at the first Convention of the Bahá'ís of North East Asia in Tokyo in 1957. After the Convention he visited various countries in Asia. When he went to Taiwan one of his services was to accompany Mr. Suleimani, who on behalf of the Tainan Local Spiritual Assembly paid a visit to the Ministry of the Interior in Taipei to determine if they could register the Faith as a religion. The section chief was sympathetic; however, Mr. Kházeh advised the Local Assembly not to pursue it at that time as Bahá'í membership was small and it would not do to get a negative reply. But, he said, let them know about the Faith.

A Certificate of Registration was granted to the National Spiritual Assembly December 8,1970.
