INTRODUCTION

Iran is a multi-national country with the population of 72 millions. Six different national groups exist in this country including Fars, Kurd, Azeri, Baluch, Arab and Turkmen. There are also a number of ethnic and religious groups including Yarsan, Alawi, Bahaye, Zoroastrian and Christians. All these national, ethnic and religious groups have been deprived of their social, cultural, linguistic and economical rights. They have no rights to express their opinion or to practise their own cultural norms. The Iranian government have zero tolerance toward religious differences and have done its utmost to Islamize all other religious groups. The expression of identity by the national and sub-national groups is not tolerated and regarded as a security issue. Those who express their distinct identity are either labelled as the pawn of outsiders or as terrorists and separatists. The dissenting voices are severely suppressed and the political opponents are regarded as "the enemy of God".
