The historical communities of Armenian and Assyrian Christians in Iran face daily persecution.
Under Iranian sharia law Leaving Islam or converting from Islam to Christianity is punishable by death.
As you can see in the video below Iran executes more people each year than Saudi Arabia, China, Pakistan, etc.
Christians in Iran are not allowed to practice their religion publicly. The persecuted Christian minority in Iran are forbidden from sharing their faith with non-Christians. Consequently, church services in Persian (Iran’s national language) are not allowed.
Before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Assyrian community in Iran totaled approximately 200,000 people. However, since then many have fled and in 2015 only 32,000 Assyrians were left in the country, mostly in Tehran.
Iran is cracking down on its Christian minority, but the media and the UN are silent in order to avoid damaging the image of Islam.
