Based on reports by “BahaiNews”, Parsa Hemmat, a Baha’i citizen residing in Isfahan, has been prevented from continuing his education.
Parsa Hemmat, who was in his second year of high school, has been banned from education solely because he did not attend the Muslim congregational prayer in his school.
Based on reports by informed sources, “this Baha’i citizen did not show up at the prayer room because of his religious beliefs; he announced that he did not find it necessary to participate in the congregational prayer because he is not a Muslim. He has been expelled from school for that same reason.”
After the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Baha’i citizens have been subjected to pressure from officials of the Islamic Republic and extremist Muslims. This pressure has repeatedly caused these Baha’i citizens to be expelled, even from elementary, middle and high schools. We have witnessed these expulsions numerous times within the past years.
Within the past few days, “BahaiNews” has published the news surrounding Baha’i citizens’ deprivation of education at universities around the country.
