Persecution of Baha'is in Iran

Just reviewed a new website detailing the latest persecution of the Baha'i community of Iran through denying higher education to Baha'i youth. That people claiming to be the followers of the Prophet Muhammed(on Him be peace)engage in such unjust behavior breaks my heart especially as it is motivated purely by blind prejudice. The courage of the Baha'is of Iran in the face of their persecution, however is a source of great inspiration. You can read about the current situation and the history of the persecution of the Iranian Baha'i community here.
