Christian prosecution in Iran
We call on the Christian Lebanese community to issue statement
condemning and calling for the release of Christians arrested by Iranian
Religious minorities continue to be targeted in Iran solely on the basis
of their beliefs.
Christians: Jamal Ghalishorani, Nadereh Jamali and Hamik Khachikian.
addition, authorities detained several members of the Gonabadi
Dervishes, followers of Sufism, on Kish Island in January.
We join the international community in urging the authorities to release
all religious minorities who are currently in detention for peacefully
exercising their human rights and fundamental freedoms.
