CONTENT
Abstract: The article explores the situation of non-Shiite Muslims, non-Christian religions like Bahá'í, and the different Christian confessions in Iran. It particularly examines their legal situation, asks for the ideological position of the Iranian leadership concerning other religions and then describes the actual problems, as the government rarely uses legal means against other religions, but uses allegations of espionage against them. Keywords Iran, Shia, Sunni, Baha’i, Protestants, Evangelicals.
