Bahai student expelled in Shiraz

PCED, November 27, 2013

Azita Momtaz ( آزیتا ممتاز ) a student of Industrial Management at Zand University in Shiraz has been expelled for her Bahai beliefs, after gaining 92 study credits. The university authorities stated that her expulsion had been ordered by the Ministry of Intelligence and “the powers that be.” She has also been denied all forms of certification for the results of her three years of study, and for her preparatory studies. Following the election of President Rouhani, the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology announced that students who have been expelled from the country’s universities in recent years could be reinstated, none of the Bahai students who have been expelled, or barred from beginning with the excuse that their files were incomplete, have had their rights reinstated.

  1. … Ideologically Mr Rouhani is limited. …. Islam, its preachers, and its enforcers are not prepared and in fact the history shows they have never been prepared to accept progression in religions (except before itself). Thus, they have left a number of limited options available to those who have long moved forward either through, objections, protest, defiance, and even violence among some. However, in the process the foundation of such authoritative institutions erodes and at some point can no longer handle the mass of force[s] burdening it. [ ~edited]

  3. Please help stop this injustice in Iran.
    The Baha’is are peaceful people and wish no ill to anyone.
    They simply want the God given right to be treated equally.

    Won’t you please help them realize their rights?
    Won’t you please pray for them, and for ALL the
    peoples, of ALL RELIGIONS in that country, to be
    allowed to practice their religion WITHOUT being
