Imprisoned for being a Baha’i, Kamran Aghdasi, begins his sentence.

On the 31 January the home of Kamran Aqdasi and his mother was raided by the security
authorities in the city of Hamadan, Iran. All their Baha’i literature was confiscated and Kamran himself was arrested. Why? Was he a criminal? Well actually he was just a Baha’i and in Iran that is considered criminal. He was detained for eight days and then released pending his trial. Unfortunately on the 3rd of April he was sentenced to a year in prison. After losing an appeal to the higher court, he persevered, and, appealed again, this time to Irans supreme court. Strangely his files were put on a back-log for a minimum of six months. He began serving his sentence on the 19 June 2008.

Although this is one of countless stories of human rights abuses towards minorities in Iran, each one is the violation of a unique individuals life and the numbers can in no part, dilute the pain and suffering endured by them and their families.
