UN Social Commission refers case of the persecution of Baha'is in Iran to the sub-committee on Prevention and Protection of Minorities

Dr. Jose Vicente Trujillo, delegate from Ecuador and Chair of the Social Commission opened the Session stating: ...In regard to prevention of discrimination against religious minorities, we have received many complaints. One of these, which, in my estimate is of great importance, regards the curtailment of rights of a religious group in a country which is an honored member of the UN... This new religion should be respected like all other religions in the world.
