15 Baha'is to stand for Trial

Accused of teaching the Faith in 2010 fifteen Baha'is were imprisoned and paid bail to be released from prison now facing trial in 2014. It would be assumed then that had they not paid bail they would have served the past four years in jail...

From the article:

Trial of 15 Bahai’s charged with propaganda against the regime in Shiraz

by editor April 9, 2014

Shiraz

[ILNA (Iranian Labour News Agency)]

The lawyer for the 15 Baha’is said that the trial of her clients charged with propaganda against the regime will take place in the Revolutionary Court in Shiraz. Giti Pourfazel announced this news and said that the 15 Baha’is had been arrested in Shiraz in 2010 and charged with propaganda against the regime because they were teaching their religion, and that they had later been released on bail. The lawyer continued: April 28th is designated for the presentation of their case at the Revolutionary Court in Shiraz; I hope with the defense that I have prepared my clients will be acquitted of the charge .

Truly sad, as Baha'u'llah says this country of His birth, which should be in such high regard by the rest of the world has dragged their country down into the depths of shame, have ignored the teachings of Muhammad and followed their own idle inclinations and thoughts.

We can only pray for their souls and that God will have mercy.
