Baha’i cemetery closed down in new wave of suppression in Kerman
The Baha’i Golestan-e Javid Cemetery in Kerman was closed down upon judicial orders as of March 15, preventing Baha’is from burying their loved ones in the cemetery.
Authorities are citing the law and “hygiene and environmental issues” in issuing the order. This is while according to an announcement in 2015 by judicial officials, at least one city in every province has to allocate a cemetery to bury deceased Baha’is.
According to reports, a number of Baha’is in Kerman who had gone to the cemetery were prohibited from entering the grounds.
