    Egypt to exclude Bahais from schools

    On November 30th, Egypt’s Minister of Education, Ibramim Ghanem, gave an interview to the Egyptian newspaper al-Sabah. In the context of a discussion of Egypt’s changing education policy, one question affirmed the long-standing legacy of marginalized minority religions such as the Baha’i faith across Egyptian society. The newspaper asked, “What is the position of the ministry regarding the right of Baha’is to enroll their children in school?” His response was: “State law in accordance with government procedures only recognizes three religions, and the Baha’i faith is not among them. Thus their children do not have the right to register in government schools.”
