the Bahais?

Reader comment on item: The Mystical Menace of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Submitted by concerned (Italy), Sep 23, 2006 at 05:43

In light of all the news about Iran lately, I was just wondering about a little known religious group in that country called the Bahais. The Bahais began in Iran, and if I'm not mistaken, form the largest religious minority group there with about 300,000 followers. When Iran became an Islamic republic in 1979, persecution against this group began in earnest, as it did for Jews, Christians, and others. Could someone kindly give me information on how the Bahais are doing right now in Iran, please? I'd be grateful to know what's happening to them.
