Iran regime one of the ugliest

DAVID Morrison ('Iranian Jews are happy at home', September 15) seems to write from the heart when he argues all is well for the Jewish population of Iran, but he clearly knows very little about Iran or its regime.
As someone with a PhD in Persian Studies and a lifetime spent studying the country, may I be allowed to advance a different theory?
Mr Morrison's worst sin is that he blithely ignores Iran's largest religious minority, the Baha'is -- an indigenous community with origins in the country. They have been condemned for their belief in a prophet following Muhammad, whom Muslims consider the 'Last Prophet'.
