Bahais On Trial in Iran.

leave a comment »

The ruling elite in Iran has decided, in a similar fashion to Stalin’s lust for them, that you can’t have enough Show Trials, so now it is attacking a small defenceless religious minority, the Bahais:

“Seven members of the Bahai faith in Iran are to go on trial on Tuesday on charges of spying for Israel and of “insulting sanctities”.

Last year relatives of the six Bahai leaders arrested in May said they had been taken to Evin Prison in Tehran after intelligence ministry officers raided their homes in the middle of the night.

Hundreds of Bahai followers have been jailed and executed since Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979, the Bahai International Community says.

However, the government denies it has detained or executed people because of their faith.

The Bahais consider the man who founded their faith in the 19th Century, Bahaullah, to be a prophet.”
