Reports from Sari indicate that over 30 Bahai businesses have been closed by authorities, and that the closures are continuing. Most of the closures have now lasted from 3 weeks to 3 months, and in a few cases much longer. Local Bahais say that officials have two aims: to isolate the Bahais from society, and to force them to leave the country. By keeping the shops locked up, officials ensure that perishable contents will deteriorate. Officials have also tried to get the Bahais to sign an undertaking not to close their businesses on Bahai Holy Days. However the law allows all businesses to close without giving notice, on 15 days during the year, except that businesses such as bakeries are only allowed to close for 3 days and are required to give notice to the authorities before they close.

    این نوع برخورد ها بر علیه هر جامعه ای با هر نوع طرز تفکری نشانه ای است از نادانی والا حقوق انسانی در هر جایی از این دنیا میباشد علی الخصوص بد تر از بد اگر در ایران و مرکز تمدن دنیا اتفاق بیافتد میباشد.
