Another step backwards for human rights in Iran. It wasn't bad enough to encourage students to bully and harass Bahá'í chidren as young as 5 and 6 year olds? Now they're digging up bad old ways from the bad old days? What next?

I doubt you're going to get many sympathetic ears, here, in_my_opinion, sorry to say.

Its a shame. Hopefully this isn't leading to something like the "cultural cleansing" of the past.

It's not happening here so there isn't much I can do about it.

I hope the plight of Baha'is in Iran continues to shed light on human rights violations in general in that country.


The Persians I've known were very elegant, wonderful people. And I understand Iran to be a beautiful country with a rich history and culture. But the government appears to be tyrannical.

For anyone who knows Baha'i from Iran, this is a very alarming development "over there".

Is this news? Iran doesn't pretend to be anything other than Muslim and bigoted. They're quite open about it. They're particularly intolerant of heretical forms of Islam, and that's how they view the Baha'i religion. It's a wonder they don't send all their Baha'is to death camps and have done with them.

Get to know the Bahá'ís in your own locality. (We are the second most widely distributed Faith (after Christianity) on the planet, it should be easy.)

Not really. There are fewer than 170,000 Baha'is in the United States. Many communities have none. In my area there are so few that they're still meeting in private homes.
