Baha'u'llah's Words on Billboards in Isfahan

Baha'u'llah was a mid-19th Century Iranian Prophet who said that announced that He was the reappearance of the Sun of Truth, the return of Christ and Imam Husayn, and the Promised One whose advent had been foretold in the scriptures of various religions. His ministry began with his announcement on April 22, 1863, from the city of Baghdad (Now Iraq). Despite this mild religion's Iranian origin, Baha'is have been persecuted in Iran from the faith's beginning.  ~Madison Reed

In Isfahan, a couple of billboards now display the words of Baha’u’llah, Prophet-founder of the Baha’i Faith, from the “Hidden Words”. On one it says, “In the garden of thy heart plant naught but the rose of love” and the other says, “Speak no evil, that thou mayest not hear it spoken unto thee”. The billboards are placed on the main city circle  by Sazman Farhang Tahrifi Shahrdari Isfahan (Isfahan’s municipality’s Organization for spread of culture)  Source: Iran Press Watch

Unfortunately, my limited reading capability in Persian leads me to believe that these words are not, however, attributed to Baha'u'llah. Why do they dare not put His name on them?
