Like all other embassies, the Iranian embassy in Greece also publishes information for the benefit of those wishing to visit Iran or learn about Iran. This document is available at: http://www.iranembassy.gr/eng/files/HumanRightsinIran.pdf. A copy of this pdf file is attached for ease of reference.
Interestingly enough, on pages 38 and 39 there is a section on the Baha’i community. Judge for yourself if anything written in this official document of the Iranian government is true about the Baha’is of that country:
Bahá’ís in Iran
Just like other countries, only a limited number of religions have been announced as official Religions in Iran. Although Bahaism is not considered an official religion, its followers enjoy social, civic and citizenship rights. Bahaism has not been identified by any Islamic country and the Organization of Islamic Countries. Some aspects relating to the citizenship rights of Bahais are as follows:
- The followers of this cult have their own cemeteries throughout the country and their dead are buries according to their customs and traditions.
- They can enroll in schools just like others. They can travel inside and outside Iran just like other citizens and their visa are issued freely.
- Bahais teachings start at the age of four. For this purpose, an institute has been formed teaching all Bahá’ís of all ages.
- Geriatric hospitals have been created for elderly Bahá’ís.
- Economically speaking, they can get work and profession permits and there are no poor Bahá’ís in Iran. They may travel abroad to do business and they are provided with equal banking and commerce facilities.
- They may very well go to universities to continue their education. Contrary to what the fans of this cult claim overseas, every year tens of Bahá’ís graduate from universities.
