Puya Azami Aghje, a Baha’i civil engineering college student, has been banned from continuing his undergraduate degrees for the sole reason of belonging to the Baha’i community.

Azami was told he is expelled for his religious beliefs on the last days of his first term exams in January,.

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.
