Iran: Baha’i student banned from university for his faith
Sina Shadabi, a Baha’i architecture college student, has been expelled due to his beliefs.
He was summoned to the security office after passing 104 academic units and told he is expelled for being a member of Iran’s Baha’i community.
It is worth noting more than 20 students have been banned from continuing their undergraduate degrees due to their religious beliefs.
Depriving Baha’is of higher education is based on a document adopted on 2 February 1991 by the regime’s so-called “Supreme Cultural Revolution Council.”
Based on this document Baha’is are also denied enrollment in any university nor allowed to continue their education in higher institutions of learning.
