Eleven Bahai Businesses Closed in Sari

Aramesh Zahuri

HRANA News Agency – Local authorities in Sari have shut down eleven businesses run by Bahais because they had been closed on Bahai holy days.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), these include four clothing stores, run by Wahab Darabi, Taraneh Zahedi, Sa`id Goli and Aramesh Zahuri; two electric motor winding shops, run by Farshad Kemali and Mehran Kemali; two toiletries and cleaning materials shops run by Ehsanullah Sana’i and Ehsan Izadi, a paint shop run by Ziullah Khushbin, the wood turning workshop of Kemal Akbari, and a household container shop run by Pedaram Qanbari.

The list is probably not complete: sources say that fifteen Bahai businesses have closed recently in Sari. Regulations allow local authorities to shut down any business that is closed, unannounced, for more than 15 days in a year.

However there are less than 15 Holy Days in the Bahai calendar, and in any case the Bahai owners normally inform local authorities of upcoming Holy Days.
