Mahiyareh Nadaf, a member of Iran’s Baha’i minority community, took part in the national exams in the field of liberal arts and was ranked 1,829th in Iran.
However, after she entered her specifications in a government website to thus seek higher education, she received a message saying she is banned from going to college. The reason for this is that she belongs to Iran’s Baha’i minority community.
Depriving Baha’is of higher education in Iran is based on a resolution adopted by the regime’s “Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution” on February 25, 1991 depriving Baha’is of occupation in government facilities and college education. Based on article 3 of this resolution, not only must Baha’is be prevented from even registering in any colleges, in fact even if an individual is discovered of being a Baha’i after entering college, they too must be deprived of education.
