Baha'i Cemetery In Shiraz

EDM number 333 in 2014-15, proposed by Hywel Williams on 10/09/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Burial and cremation, Iran and Religion and faith communities.

That this House notes the joint press release of 4 September 2014 from three United Nations special rapporteurs calling on the Iranian government to bring an immediate halt to the destruction of a Baha'i cemetery in the city of Shiraz; believes that the desecration of Baha’i graves constitutes an unacceptable violation of freedom of religion; and urges the Government to intercede with Iranian officials and press them to take immediate action to effect a full cessation of the demolition of this Baha'i cemetery.

This motion has been signed by a total of 23 MPs.
