Darsa Gholizadeh, a college student studying construction in Ruzbahan University in the city of Sari (northern Iran), was expelled from school after being summoned by the Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) office during term exams in the spring of 2015.
She has written a letter explaining her expulsion and what the MOIS interrogator told her:
“You knew that Baha’is are expelled from school! You knew that you could have been expelled yourself! However, you insisted on continuing your studies. You have no intention other than advertising Baha’ism on campus.”
“When they learned about my interest in education, they proposed three things:
1. Keep my faith and be deprived of education.
2. Leave Iran to continue my education.
3. To repent from my faith.
In response I said: “People’s beliefs are in their heads, in their brains, in their hearts. You cannot get their beliefs from them.”
The interrogator said in response, “All right then, keep your faith and be deprived of education.”
