Iranian Government Bulldozes Baha’i Cemetery

This is just downright appalling. This week, an Iranian court upheld a ruling that allowed for the government to confiscate a plot of land owned and used by some of the Baha’i community as a cemetery! Not only did they confiscate the land, but then they BULLDOZED it! What a disrespectful slap in the face to a group of citizens that practice a faith based on peace and humanity. This is the third time the Iranian government has confiscated land from the Baha’is, dating back to 1979, so it’s pretty humiliating they don’t understand that it is 2013 and those actions are NOT acceptable!!
