Iran: 120 Baha’is denied right to university because of their faith

At least 120 Baha’i citizens who participated in the 2017 General University Admittance Test were denied entry to university and higher education due to their religion.
After entering their name and volunteer number (in the affiliated website), the young men and women encountered a message which read, “Dear volunteer, refer to the Education Accountability Organization due to a violation in your case.”
According to the third article of the resolution approved in 1991 by the Supreme Council of the Cultural Revolution, which was approved by Khamenei, “at universities, both at the entrance and during education, if it is established that they are Baha’is they are to be deprived of education.”
