Rubio, Wyden, Colleagues Introduce Resolution Condemning Repression of Iranian Baha’i

Apr 28, 2021 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL), Ron Wyden, (D-OR), Dick Durbin, (D-IL), and John Boozman, (R-AR) introduced a resolution condemning the Iranian regime for persecuting the 300,000 members of the Baha’i faith.

The Iranian Baha’i community is the largest religious minority in Iran with membership of more than 300,000 people. Unlike other religious minorities such as Christians, Jews, and Zoroastrians, Iran’s Baha’is have never been recognized officially and are often subjected to persecution by the Iranian regime.

The regime often seizes personal property, denies Baha’i access to education and employment opportunities and detains or imprisons Baha’is based solely on their religious beliefs. Over the past 10 years, about 850 Baha’is have been arbitrarily arrested in Iran. This resolution denounces the religious persecution and calls for the immediate release of all religious prisoners.
