Thames Valley Bahais welcome report on human rights

22/10/2010
Thames Valley Bahai Community has welcomed a human rights report from UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, in which he expressed strong concern over Iran’s ongoing human rights violations, including its persecution of Iranian Baha’is.

Mr Ban strongly criticized Iran’s failure to protect the rights of minorities, such as the Baha’i, Sufi, Baluch and Kurdish communities.

West Berkshire Bahai Shawn Khorassani said: “Mr Ban has repeatedly expressed concern over Iran’s ongoing persecution of the Iranian Baha’i community, who are discriminated against solely because of their religious belief. Thames Valley Bahais are very appreciative of this support for Iranian Baha’is.”
