Newly-leaked documents describe ‘Iranian state-sanctioned persecution of Baha’is’

By Al Arabiya English

Newly-released documentary evidence detailing “years of relentless oppression” suffered by the Baha’i community in Iran has been published by the Washington-based Baha’i International Community (BIC) this week.

A BIC website published thousands of official documents, reports, testimonials, and audio-visual material chronicling the “continuous, pervasive, state-sponsored persecution against the Baha’is of Iran, demonstrating the falsity of claims made by Iranian authorities that Baha’is are not discriminated against,” according to a statement by the group.
