In 2009 the Muslim Network for Baha’i Rights undertook the project of documenting every human rights abuse against the Baha’i community over the decades. An updated version of the timeline and an updated version of our site are now available, but sadly, not an updated record for Baha’i human rights. Instances of detainment and arrests, the denial of education, desecration of┬ácemeteries, social norms and government laws that hold back Baha’is are still common throughout Iran and the Middle East. So while you enjoy our new layout, please take a moment to consider how many of the abuses we will document and condemn aren’t new at all.

The Muslim Network for Baha’i Rights reaffirms its commitment to the pursuit of ┬áreligious freedom and human rights for all of our diverse communities. Documenting and condemning human rights abuses against Baha’is ensures that their story isn’t ignored and empowers voices calling for change. Follow us here and on Twitter @BahaiRights for up to date information about Baha’i human rights across the world.
