Security forces in Fars Province have arrested blogger and student Badri Safiari, according to the Committee of Human Rights Reporters.
The group says that Safiari, a student at Kavar University, was arrested last Wednesday while returning to her home city of Shiraz. After detaining Safiari, security forces reportedly went to her father’s house and confiscated a number of her belongings including her computer, notes and books.
The student is said to have been using her blog, “Sufi”, to publish news and information about the ongoing campaign of harassment and intimidation against members of the Nematollah Gonabadi Sufi Order.
In recent years, the Gonabadi dervishes have increasingly become the target of persecution, with many members of the community being subjected to attacks, arrests and lengthy jail terms.
