Christian prosecution in Iran

090222

We call on the Christian Lebanese community to issue statement condemning and calling for the release of Christians arrested by Iranian regime. 

Religious minorities continue to be targeted in Iran solely on the basis of their beliefs.

Last month authorities arrested three Christians: Jamal Ghalishorani, Nadereh Jamali and Hamik Khachikian.

In 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.
