UN Rejects ‘No-Action Motion’ on Human Rights in Iran

I am pleased to learn that on the 21st of November the UN General Assembly rejected a “no-action motion” on human rights in Iran. If this motion had been passed it would have annulled a resolution which criticised the Islamic Republic of Iran for its “violent repression” of women, high amount of executions, application of torture, and “increasing discrimination” against Baha’is, Sunni Muslims, Sufis, Christians, Jews, and other minority groups.
