Harassment of Baha’is in Semnan

Khabar Navard site reports the following:

In a continuation of the harassment, aggravation and threats against the Baha’is of Semnan, as well as their friends in some cases, Mrs. Khadijeh Nabavi has been summoned to the Information Office in that city on a number of occasions.  Each of these visits has ended in a lengthy interrogation.

However, this time the harassment did not just end with the interrogation, but rather, Erfani (which of course is just one of his pseudonyms), who is the interrogator of the Baha’is of Semnan and has a history of harsh and cruel treatment towards the Baha’is of this town, threatened her further by saying, “You must cease to support your Baha’i husband, otherwise he too will be treated ruthlessly.”

The presence of such individuals with pseudonyms, such as Erfani (the interrogator in Semnan), or Muhed (an interrogator in Mazandaran) or Matin Rasekhi (an interrogator in Tehran who is filled with spite and malice towards the Baha’i community), is increasing in all regions of Iran.  They seem willing to barter their humanity and goodwill to win a piece of bread.
