Given this development, it is a shame (if this is still the case) that all full-time students are obliged to join their local NUS in order to join particular societies. The point would be well made if NUS membership declined precipitously as a result of this. After all, the NUS, nationally and locally, hardly acts as a trade union in the usual sense of the term.
I have a suggestion, Iran. And why, because of this,
“The Bahais, who are barred from higher education and government posts in staunchly Shiite Muslim Iran, are regarded as infidels by the majority community and have been persecuted both before and after the country’s 1979 Islamic revolution.”.
No, wait, the Centre of the Bahai faith is in Haifa (Israel).
Sorry followers of the Bahai faith. You are turly f******d – but only for the most principled of reasons you understand.
