The Baha’i Employees of Railways are not Paid a Salary Increase

It has been reported that the list of salary increases for the railway employees has recently been fully completed, but names of the Baha’i employees have been omitted from the list.  Because in a recent questionnaire, many railway employees have introduced themselves as Baha’is, and since according to employment law, the official religion is considered as Twelver Shiite of Islam or the minority religions (such as Christianity), based on these limits, the rulings [about the salaries of the Baha’is] have been delayed, and this is the first positive action against this sect.
