To Be a Baha’i in Iran



Baha’is, the largest non-Muslim religious minority in Iran, have been persecuted since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, and are today “suppressed in all areas of life,” according to the Baha’i International Community (BIC). The organization says the authorities are using a range of “new and ever harsher methods” to persecute the Baha’is, including “home raids and searches, arrests, trials, prison terms, land and property confiscations, hate speech, the denial of education, and the denial of burial rights and of basic citizenship rights.” The aim of these new tactics is “to sow fear and confusion, to disenfranchise and further impoverish Baha’is, to prolong the harassment of individuals, and to instill feelings of uncertainty and thus rob all Baha’is of peace and security in their daily lives.”
