thugs. Except its own.
Say you are for "a constitutional monarchy" and forget university, it's straight to the torture rooms and trial with out an attorney.
The persecution of our Bahaii compatriots by the Fascist islamist regime is simply shameful deserving condemnation without reservation.

What a crime that the Iranian government is committing against its own people! By barring Baha'is from higher education, they are depriving our Iran of their unique talents, skills, and contributions.
I have so much gratitude and admiration for Mr. Soltani, Ms. Sotoudeh, and the many other human rights lawyers and advocates in Iran. Knowing the dangers they face, they are standing up for the dignity of all Iranians -- Muslims, Baha'is, Zoroastrians, Jews, Christians, agnostics, atheists, Azeris, Kurds, Baluch, women, men, children, and the countless others.
I hope for the day when the Iranian people will be free...
