Continuous Support of the American Senate Foreign Relations Committee for the Baha’is

The United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee has passed a resolution inviting the Iranian government to consider the right to freedom of religious practice for the Baha’i community.

According to the state radio in the United States, the resolution was signed by 44 American senators with the efforts of Senator Dodd and Senator Cassian. In addition, a group of senators submitted a request to the United States secretary of state, James Baker, asking him to follow up with the human rights issues in Iran.

It appears that, owing to the support of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Palestinian people, the American government is raising the human rights issues and the Baha’is as a tool to apply pressure on the Iranian government. This resolution was designed and manufactured to feed this purpose.
