The other one is HRC, full for Human Rights Committee. Another body is (CESR), meaning Committee on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights. The Committee on the Rights of the Child monitors the implementation initiation of the convention on the rights of the children and its optional protocols. The Subcommittee on Prevention of Torture is tasked with visiting places of detention so as to prevent torture and degrading treatment or such forms of punishment. The Baha’is have been denied their fundamental human rights. More than 300,000 followers of the Baha’i faith continue living in fear.
The number of Baha’is living in Iran is projected to be more than three hundred thousand. The Baha’is are not however allowed to exercise their religious obligations like their counterparts in the other parts of the world. The Baha’is faith has been linked to the political sect by the government of Iran. The faith has been linked to the Pahlavi monarchy, which the government terms a threat, and, for this reason, a counterrevolutionary. In 1979, the Iranian government confiscated all the properties of the Baha’is. Their places of worship and graveyards went into the hands of the government, leaving them hopeless and defenseless. In addition to this, the government also denied them access to education and employment, leading to the continued erosion of the economic base of the Baha’i community (Hassan, 2007).
There exists a relationship between Islamic law and international human rights. The two laws are expected to be in line with the lives of the people and offer a fair form of ruling to all, without any form of discrimination on religious backgrounds. Many Muslim states have tried to observe their laws to be in accordance with the national law. . Many of the Islamic laws are grounded on the Sharia. By so doing, they have remained within the framework of the Sharia law (Abiad, 2008).
