Forty three prominent academics of Christian, Hindu, Jewish, and Muslim backgrounds from 16 countries have joined the condemnation of Iran’s policy to bar young Baha’is and others from higher education.

In an unprecedented global initiative they signed an open letter, published on 10 October in The Daily Telegraph .

The letter condemns, in particular, recent attacks by the Iranian authorities on an informal educational initiative of the Baha’i community – known as the Baha’i Institute for Higher Education (BIHE).

It is at BIHE that Baha’i professors, debarred by the Iranian government from practicing their professions, voluntarily offer their services to teach young community members who are banned from higher education.
