The most recent post features a Bahá’í World News Service press release that announces the release of a recent report from the Connecticut-based Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) on the situation of Iran’s Bahá’ís. The 60-page report expresses concern that Iranian Bahá’ís “may soon face another cycle of repression and violence”. You can read the original press release.
Also of interest may be a photo that appeared on iranian.com and was blogged on the portuguese Baha’i blog Povo de Bahá a few days ago. The photo shows an anti-Baha’i display set up outside a mosque in Iran. My Persian’s getting better, but it’s still too rusty to understand what’s written on the signs.
From the website: The book stand in front of the mosque has a green banner reading: offering books for Recognition of the “Devious Baha’i sect”. I’m assuming this means they’re offering books that misrepresent the Baha’i Faith and passing them off as Baha’i scripture.
