, , Leave a comment


The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office has released a statement calling on Iran to cease the persecution of the Baha’i Faith in Iran.

A Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office spokesperson said:

Reports of the ongoing persecution of the Baha’i  Faith in Iran are intolerable in 2023. We call on Iran to release all elderly and medically vulnerable Baha’is imprisoned in Iran and to halt their practice of demanding excessive bail sums from arrested Baha’is.

The UK is committed to promoting freedom of religion or belief and will continue to work with partners to promote the rights of the Baha’i community in Iran.
