Iran: Young woman expelled from collegePublished by International Liberty on January 17, 2016
Ms. 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.
