OFFICIAL CHARACTER OF BAHA'I EXPULSIONS IN IRANIAN UNIVERSITY REVEALED

NEW YORK, 7 March 2007 (BWNS) -- The Baha'i International Community has
obtained a document that appears to confirm double-dealing by Iran in
its policy towards Baha'i students seeking higher education.

The document, a 2 November 2006 letter from the headquarters of Payame
Noor University to its regional branches, states that it is government
policy that Baha'i students "cannot enroll" in Iranian universities and
that if they are already enrolled, "they should be expelled."

"This document provides proof of Iran's duplicitous behavior regarding
Iranian Baha'i students," said Bani Dugal, the Baha'i International
Community's principal representative to the United Nations.

"In its public face, Iran claims that it has finally opened the doors
to Baha'i students, after some 25 years of keeping them out of public
and private universities in Iran," said Ms. Dugal.

"But, as evidenced by this confidential memorandum from the Payame Noor
central office, the real policy is apparently to simply expel Baha'is
as soon as they can be identified."

Indeed, the content of the letter sharply contradicts denials issued
last week by an Iranian government spokesperson when asked to comment on
figures released by the Baha'i International Community showing that a
large number of Baha'i university students have been expelled so far
this year, solely because of religious discrimination.

According to a report by Reuters on 28 February 2007, a spokesperson
for the Iranian mission to the United Nations, who had requested his name
not be used, was asked about the high percentage of expelled students
and replied: "No one in Iran because of their religion has been expelled
from studying."

Until two years ago, all Baha'i students were kept out of universities
by the requirement that everyone list their religion on entrance
examination forms. Baha'is were automatically rejected.

After pressure from the international community and human rights
organizations, Iran changed its policy and dropped the religious affiliation
requirement.

Last autumn, hundreds of Baha'is passed the examination and some 178
were admitted into the university of their choice. So far this school
year, however, at least 70 Baha'i students have been expelled as
universities have learned that they were Baha'is.

The 2 November letter was issued on the letterhead of Iran's Ministry
of Science, Research and Technology, and goes out from Payame Noor's
"Central Protection Office" to directors of the university's regional
centers.

"With respect, according to the ruling of the Cultural Revolutionary
Council and the instructions of the Ministry of Information and the Head
Protection Office of the Central Organization of Payame Noor
University, Baha'is cannot enroll in universities and higher education centers,"
states the letter.

"Therefore, such cases if encountered should be reported, their
enrollment should be strictly avoided, and if they are already enrolled they
should be expelled."

Payame Noor University is "the largest state university in terms of
student numbers and coverage," according to the university's website, with
some 467,000 students in 74 degree programs at 257 study centers and
units throughout the country.

So far this year, at least 30 Baha'i students have been expelled from
Payame Noor.
