Have the Baha’is complained to the United Nations?

As we have been informed, it is being said that before the news about the Baha’is started to spread, the Baha’is had written a letter to the United Nations and asked the United Nations to instruct the Iranian government to, first, officially recognize the Baha’i religion, and, second, give them the ability to send a representative to the Parliament like all of the other religious minorities. But the religious authorities were informed about this matter and, before action could be taken on it, they took over the Haziratu'l-Quds[1].
