The Baha’i World News Service published a recent report concerning the most recent destruction of Baha’i cemeteries in Iran (also noted earlier here.)

The report notes:

The bulldozing of a Baha’i cemetery in Iran last week is the latest in a series of incidents in a government-led campaign of hatred against Baha’is.

The destruction of the cemetery by individuals using heavy equipment occurred between 9 September and 10 September near Najafabad, on the outskirts of Isfahan. What happened there is nearly identical to what happened in July in Yazd, where another Baha’i cemetery was extensively damaged by earth-moving equipment.

Despite such hatred and consisted abuse, the Baha’i World News Service also published an article last week encouraging Iranian Baha’is “to respond with composure, perseverance, and a redoubled commitment to work towards the common good in Iran.” (Click here for full article)
