From Yarsan Democratic Organization 2017/14/8
About Yarsan, a religious minority in Iran
Yarsan are followers of Yari religion. The population of Yarsan are about 2 million, this people are living mostly in the vest of Iran spread over several Province like Kermanshah, Hamedan, Kurdistan, Azerbaijan and several other towns in across Iran .
Yarsan citizens continually exposed to pervasive discrimination by Islamic Republic of Iran. This discrimination applies to all personal and social affairs, including involvement in political affairs, the right to interfere in the decision-making organs, the native language education, the labor market, acquiring government jobs, free education, religious practice, and the right to create prayer centers.
The Yarsan people have suffered injustice and discrimination during the regime 37 years Board. Although Yari religion is not awarded rights as a minority religion on an equal footing with other minorities in accordance paragraph 13 first Chapter in the constitution, but this action is in the opposite contravention of paragraphs 19.23 in Chapter 3 (nation rights). The action of the regime against the Yarsan community are violations of Articles 1,3,5,7,9 and 18 Human Rights which Iran has signed and is committed to maintaining it.
Yarsan Democratic Organization are an European-based political organization and fights for Yarsans political, cultural and social rights. Our campaign is peaceful and we are an independent organization.
We ask To Asma Jahangir- UN Special Rapporteur on Iran pay attention to Yarsan people and investigate violations of the fundamental right for this people. please greeting
