Ministry of Intelligence bars Maku Bahai from keeping bees

HRANA, May 21, 2018. –

The Ministry of Intelligence in Maku has told Shahin Dehqan ( شاهین دهقان), a Bahai who has been working as a beekeeper for the past 17 years, that he must sell his hives within ten days, or he will be jailed and his hives will be confiscated.
