Iran sentences Baha’is for teaching children

January 29, 2008 - 4:07pm

The Agence France-Presse reported today that Iran's judiciary has announced sentences for 54 members of the Baha'i Faith who were arrested in May 2006 in Shiraz while taking part in a project to educate underprivileged children.

According to AFP, judiciary spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi told reporters that, "three Bahais have been sentenced to four years in prison for propaganda against the regime." Jamshidi said the other 51 Baha'is received suspended one-year jail terms conditioned on their attending courses held by state Islamic Propaganda Organisation.

Hi,

Such acts are not confirmed by Quran or Ahadith.

After the battle of Badr there were such prisoners who taught Muslim children and got themselves free. It was an offer by Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH ).

Iran is going against the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH ).

Regards,
Ahsan
