For decades, Baha’is in the region were (and still are) met with threats, imprisonment, death and the denial of their basic human rights. And in no place has the abuse been more pronounced as in Iran – the birth place of the faith.

In 1983, ABC produced a short documentary highlighting the perils facing Baha’is in Iran. That was a dark era in the history of Iran, marked with an oppressive crackdown on Baha’is and other religious minorities. Sadly, the repression continues to this day.

We at the MNBR have translated the video to Arabic, in an effort to raise awareness about the peaceful nature of the Baha’i faith, the abuse innocent Baha’is face, and promote dialogue.
