Baha'i Scholars Await Trial in Iran

117029488edit takeaway-logo-sm -- http://www.thetakeaway.org/Eight members of the Bahai’i religious minority are awaiting trial in Iran, after organizing the Baha’i Institute for Education, a place where dismissed professors teach Baha’i youth as volunteers. The Iranian government recognizes the Baha’i community as a political organization, rather than a religious group, and declared the center illegal.
