According to the “No to persecution and imprisonment of the Baha’i compatriots Campaign,” a resident of Kermanshah, was arrested once again for many times due to his belief.
According to reports, this Baha’i citizen was arrested and imprisoned by the judicial authorities while at the prosecutor’s office.
The reason for this Bahai citizen referring to the court was the extensive arrests of Baha’is in Kermanshah.
Previously, nine of the Baha’is of Kermanshah had their homes searched by security intelligence officials on Oct. 18, 2017, and they were arrested for 18 days.
Seven of these citizens were released, but Peyman Ghiami with another Baha’i citizen was summoned back to court.
The Iranian government does not recognize the Baha’i Faith as a religion and its followers’ rights. Bahá’ís in Iran face a wide range of restrictions, including a ban on university education and a ban on having a number of jobs and observing religious ceremonies.
Whereas, in parts of the first paragraph of Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights explicitly states that “the pursuit of higher education shall be equally applicable to all individuals by individuals’ competencies.” Also, according to the first paragraph of the UNESCO Convention against Educational Discrimination any deprivation and restriction by instances such as language, religion, political opinions or other beliefs has also been disallowed.
