HUMAN RIGHTS: Government Bars 1,000 Bahai Students from Attending Universities
August 11, 2004 - Bahai high-school graduates who had passed the national university entrance exam were not admitted to universities and higher education students after they entered their religion in registration forms, Geneva-based international Bahami community’s UN envoy Dianne Alai tells Radio Farda’s broadcaster Amir Armin. Unlike previous years, when applicants had to declare their religion before attending the entrance exam, this year’s applications did not have a space for religion, but Bahais who had passed the exam received admittance letters in which their religion was entered as Muslim, she adds. When the students attempted to correct that in registration forms, they were refused admittance, she said. More than 1.2 million high school graduated participated in the national exam last June to compete for nearly 100,000 freshman positions in public colleges and universities.
