Wrongful Arrest And Imprisonment Of The Leaders Of The Baha’i Community In Iran

I am greatly troubled by the recent wrongful arrest and imprisonment of the leaders of the Baha’i community in Iran on the 15th May. This brings back unhappy memories of the early 1980’s when  members of two national Iranian Bahá’í governing councils were abducted, leading to the disappearance or murder of seventeen innocent souls.  Deeply sad and ironic given that the Baha’i community with their non-involvement in partisan politics are among the most loyal and peaceful groups in the Iranian polity.  If you would like to find out more about this issue visit the Baha’i World News Service.
