伊朗迫害宗教少数派的报道令美国“万分震惊” US “Horrified” by Reports of Iran Persecuting Religious Minorities

川普行政当局对有关伊朗政府迫害宗教少数派的报道感到万分震惊。

美国的国际宗教自由无任所大使布朗贝克星期二在美国国务院说,令人震惊的报道显示,什叶派穆斯林占多数的伊朗迫害非什叶派穆斯林以及那些不信奉政府强加于他们的宗教信仰的人。

布朗贝克在公布国务院的2017年国际宗教自由报告时发表了以上讲话。

报告中有关伊朗的部分说,伊朗的什叶派穆斯林政权继续以“主罪(enmity against God)”将人处决,包括去年12月在厄尔布尔士省处决4名囚犯以及去年9月在克尔曼省处决4名男子。

美国的国际宗教自由报告说,德黑兰政权继续骚扰、审讯、和逮捕巴哈伊信徒、基督徒、逊尼派穆斯林和其它宗教少数派人士,并在官方声明中使用反犹太和反巴哈伊的措辞。

报告还说,伊朗少数宗教的信徒,尤其是巴哈伊信徒,继续面临社会歧视和骚扰,雇主面临不要雇佣巴哈伊信徒的压力,或是将他们解雇。

The Trump administration says it is horrified by reports of Iranian government persecution of religious minorities in the Islamist-ruled nation.

Speaking Tuesday at the U.S. State Department, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback said the “horrific” reports relate to what he called Iran's persecution of people who are not part of its Shiite majority and who do not practice religion as the government directs.

He made the comments as he presented the State Department's 2017 International Religious Freedom Report.

The annual report's section on Iran said its Islamist rulers continued to execute people on charges of “moharebeh” or “enmity against God,” including four prisoners in Alborz province in December and four men in Kerman province in September.

The U.S. report said Tehran also continued to harass, interrogate and arrest Baha'is, Christians, Sunni Muslims and other religious minorities and to use anti-Semitic and anti-Baha'i rhetoric in official statements.

The report said members of religious minorities – especially Baha'is – continued to face societal discrimination and harassment, with employers experiencing social pressures not to hire Baha'is or to dismiss them from their jobs.
