Baha’is are the largest religious minority in Iran

Fardanews has published an article in their website that questions the true population of the adherents of the largest religious minority in Iran.

The Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran are constantly searching for ways that deny the existence of people who follow the Baha’i Faith in Iran. This time Fardanews adopted a rather innovative approach that analysing the last two Government census carried out since the Islamic Revolution.

Baha’is throughout the world are working towards the “betterment of the world and the tranquillity of it’s people”. Baha’is participate in socio-economic projects that transform communities and revitalise it’s inhabitants. Meanwhile, Baha’is in Iran continue to sacrifice their lives for their Faith as their current government denies both their human rights and their existence in society.

Baha’is throughout the world, especially in Iran, will proudly stand up and call themselves Baha’is. In all other countries during census time, Baha’is proudly mark their beliefs and identify themselves as Baha’is.

When the government does not make room for correct identification of religion on their census papers, how can they expect to collect the right information? When a government blatantly presents fallacies as truths, how can one expect that the information collected is a true representation of the state of their nation?
