The Baha’i Question Revisited

November 18, 2016, in Videos > Documentary, by

This short video released by the Baha’i International Community’s United Nations Office summarizes the ongoing persecution and resilience of the Baha’is in Iran. 

The Baha’i Question Revisited: Persecution and Resilience in Iran was produced in association with Erfan Khadem and Shideh Faramand. This heart-breaking but informational video examines how the Iranian government, in reaction to pressure from the international community, has shifted its focus to more obscure and subtle forms of economic, educational and cultural discrimination in ways that rarely make the news.

You can learn more about the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran and their current situation here.

You can also watch other videos released by the BIC UN Office on their YouTube Channel.
