As far as I know Baha’i s are the most loving and kind people and they believe in unity of mankind, Oneness of God and Oneness of religion.
Why the Baha’i youth that were teaching the children of the villages basic morals and values as a service were captured and imprisoned?
Why the Baha’i young people are not allowed and their rights are violated for higher education, as their universities was closed several times and finally their professors that were teaching free of charge were captured and imprisoned? What was their crime and it was not costing the Government anything?
Why the seven leaders of the Baha’is that they were all educated and serving all people with love and no crime are still in prison? Are Baha’is allowed to breath?

I am a Baha’i and I love all the people of Iran and I love people of the world as members of my family.
Why the Baha’i s of Iran are persecuted for their religious believes that is based on love for all who crosses their path? Aren’t we all brothers and sisters as family of man?
Why their basic human right is violated to get higher education?
The Baha’i Faith teaches Love, Peace and unity of mankind.
What is the crime that the Baha’i s of Iran committed that they have to suffer so much?
