Shadi Shirazi, with top university entry grades, denied admission


Alliance for Rights of All Minorities-ARAM, September 10, 2014.

Shadi Shirazi (شادان شیرازی), a math student with top tier ranks in her entrance exams was denied admission to university because of her religious beliefs in Baha’i faith, according Taghato News. A decision of Iran’s Supreme Council of Culture and Revolution effectively calls for the exclusion of members of Baha’i faith from employment and opportunities for higher education. The third section of this provision calls for an immediate removal of the student at any point upon the revelation of their religious identity, including post registration or during the academic year.
