Following the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979, members of the Baha’i Faith – the largest religious minority in the country – have been subjected to a relentless campaign of systematic persecution. This persecution has impacted the lives of generations, from young infants to the elderly.
Yet in recent months, the four-decades long state-sponsored campaign of hate speech and propaganda has reached new levels, increasing in both sophistication and scale. This has provoked fresh concerns for the rights of the Baha’i’s in Iran.
Amnesty has joined the Australian Baha’i Community in calling on the Australian Government to demand that Iranian authorities take action to ensure the rights of Baha’i’s are protected.
