Persecution of Bahá’ís in Iran – 2022

Recent weeks have seen an escalation in the unfair treatment of members of the Bahá’í community in Iran.

Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence issued an appalling statement of oppressive hate propaganda against the persecuted Bahá’í religious minority yesterday in an attempt to justify the raids on the homes and businesses of 52 Bahá’ís across Iran and the arrest or imprisonment of 13 individuals.

In a cruel escalation up to 200 Iranian government and local agents have sealed off the village of Roushankouh, in Mazandaran province, where a large number of Baháʼís live, and are using heavy earthmoving equipment to demolish their homes.

Six homes were destroyed and over 20 hectares of land belonging to Bahá’ís in the village were confiscated.
