According to a report by Bazdasht, Tabassom Hosayni, who was born on 10 July 1997, is the youngest Baha’i prisoner.
Tabassom Hosayni and her mother, Emilia Hakiman, were arrested on 6 November 2016 in the city of Zahedan, because they are Baha’is.
The question is what kind of threat a young girl poses to the Iranian regime, so that they make her experience such an emotional and physical hardship at this age.
In addition to Tabassom and her mother, another Baha’i citizen named Farshid Dadvar was arrested in Zahedan on the same day.
Farshid Dadvar moved from Yazd to Zahedan a few years ago. He was arrested once before, in Zahedan, on 23 December 2012, and was fortunately acquitted after some time.
In addition, another Baha’i citizen named Saeid Azimi was arrested in Esfahan on 25 October 2016. His situation remains unknown.
Moreover, Mr. Amrollah Hekmatshoar, a Baha’i citizen residing in Karaj, was arrested on 7 November 2016. His son, Aref Hekmatshoar, had been dismissed from school last year, because of his belief in the Baha’i Faith.
