Members of British Parliament Criticize Iran’s policies


While a wave of international protests against Britain continues in various countries, including in Britain itself, for its participation in the United States’ attack on Libya, a group of that country’s Members of Parliament once again voiced criticism of the internal policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran.




Based on a BBC report, 117 Members of the British Parliament have published a pamphlet that accuses Iran of violating human rights, and have objected to the punishment of the Baha’is [as] those who spread corruption on earth and individuals who take up arms against Islamic law.  The European governments and the White House had also previously protested against the execution of espionage elements who worked as spies under the cover of Baha’ism.
