Authorities in Iran have shut down a nonprofit high school in the city of Mahabad, northwestern Iran, for holding a mixed-gender traditional Kurdish dance party.
With an estimated population of 200,000, Mahabad is a mainly Kurd city.
Non-Muslim minorities in Iran are not allowed to practice their religion publicly. The persecuted Non-Muslim minority in Iran are forbidden from sharing their faith with Non-Muslim.
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 Kurdish & Christian minorities, but the media and the UN are silent in order to avoid damaging the image of Islam.
