Based on reports by No to Harassment and Imprisonment of Baha’i Compatriots: Azita Rafizadeh, who had previously been sentenced to four years imprisonment for teaching at the online Baha’i university (BIHE), reported to Evin Prison this morning to start serving her four-year sentence.

Since the Iranian Revolution, Baha’is have been denied their rights to higher education and to hold government jobs. Their local administrative bodies have been declared illegal and their cemeteries have been desecrated in various cities.
