The desecration of cemeteries has always been used as a tactic to supress and offend, and Iran’s Bahai minority has faced this abuse for decades.

The most recent desecration took place just days ago on the 27th of September in Isfahan, where trees were cut down from a Baha’i cemetery. Images are presented below.

This contradicts President Ahmadinejad’s words concerning religious minorities in Iran being part of the “Iranian family.”

Tehran – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday dismissed Western allegations of discriminating religious minorities and said that all minorities were part of the “grand Iranian family,” the news network Khabar reported.

If this was indeed the case, why the apparent discrimination and disrespect towards innocent Baha’is, including the dead who are not even left to rest in peace?
