Efforts of the Baha’is of the World to Remove the Prohibition Against the Baha’i Sect in Iran

Following the limitations recently imposed upon the activities of the Baha’i sect in Iran, at the direction of the leader of the Baha’is of the world, the Baha’is from all over the globe have sent telegrams and letters to show their objection to the actions of the Iranian government against this sect. The Baha’is, whose total number in the world is estimated at approximately three million people, have taken other actions to remedy the limitations placed on the activities of the Baha’i sect in Iran. However, it appears unlikely that their actions will yield any result.
