Motion text

That this House is alarmed at the steps taken by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard to begin destroying a historically important Bahá'i cemetery in Shiraz, Iran; observes that attacks on Bahá'i cemeteries are part of a wide ranging, multifaceted, cradle-to-grave campaign of persecution against Bahá'is conducted by the Iranian government with the aim of eliminating the community as a viable entity in Iran; deplores this recent act of desecration; and calls on the Government to strongly urge the Iranian authorities to prevent further destruction of the cemetery.
