Chapter Summary

When the tumultuous news of Muhammad-ʿAlí Sháh’s abdication and the installation of General Asʿad was received, this gave Siyyid ʿAbduʾl-Husayn new ideas. Arraying a large number of armed men around him, he began to cherish designs for an sovereignty and throne. The following day Mullá Muhammad-ʿAlí and his son-in-law, Mullá Hasan, were working the farm fields of Bíd-Lang, and were found and seized by the agitators. Having noted the extensive harassment, disarray, molestation, and abuse brought about by Siyyid ʿAbduʾl-Husayn and Shaykh Zakariyyá, eventually Hájí Ásifuʾd-Dawlih ordered the Nasruʾd-Dawlih, to establish order in the region and in the border towns.
