Iran: Young woman expelled from college

Iran: Young woman expelled from college

Published by on January 17, 2016

160104Ms. Elham Pakru Miyando-ab, a Baha’i Iranian, studying at Free University in Malard, was expelled from college.
She was studying to receive her master’s degree in computer and software engineering. Being a Baha’i has been described as the reason she was summoned and expelled from college.

She has also been deprived of the permission to continue her studies in other institutes.

Expelling and depriving Baha’ii students from education in universities takes place as the “Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution” cites a bill passed on February 25, 1991, depriving Baha’is of education and working in state facilities.

Based on article 3 of this bill not only must Baha’is be prevented from registering in universities, in fact if an individual is found to be a Baha’i after registration and “while studying” they must be deprived of continuing their studies.

Abolish death penalty

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
