Bahai business closed in Birjand

HRANA, November 28

On November 5, a car parts shop belonging to Mrs. Bahreh Malaki ( باهره ملاکی ), a Bahai in Birjand, was shut and its operating license has been revoked. The owner was told in a letter that no license would be given, because of “membership in the wayward Bahai sect.” She was allowed 10 days to close down the business. In the previous year, Mrs. Malaki was also refused a permit, and she was told that as a woman she was not allowed to sell car parts. A few months ago, Saghri Mahjureh ( صغری مهجوره ), another woman operating a car parts shop, was told that as a woman she was not allowed to sell car parts, and she too was forced to close her business.
