Iran: More Evidence for Discrimination Against Bahá’ís

Bahá’í World News Service reports that another letter instructing government officials to keep Bahá’í students out of Iran’s educational system has come to light, this time with explicit instructions to bar Bahá’ís from access to higher education. A copy of the 2006 letter, signed by the director general of the Central Security Office of the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, states that universities must expel their Bahá’í students as soon as their religious affiliation becomes known, whether this should occur prior to enrollment or during the course of the student’s program. Please visit the linkfor examples of other letters and directives from the Iranian government which relate to Bahá’í students in Iran.
