Iranian Religious Minorities Have Freedom, Respect

The Assyrian, Chaldean Catholic Church Bishop of Orumiyeh Thomas Mirm said on Tuesday that complete freedom and respect for religious minorities of the country were fruits of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Speaking at a ceremony to commemorate the 36th anniversary of the revolution in the northwestern city of Salmas, the bishop said the revolution had caused great changes in the economic, cultural and social aspects of Iranian lives including those of the followers of different religions, IRNA reported.
One of blessings of the revolution for the people is peaceful coexistence between different ethnic and religious minorities, he said.
Religious minorities inlcuding the Armenians, Assyrians, Zoroastrians and Jews have their own representatives in parliament.
