According to reports from Iran, three Kurdish teachers from West Azerbaijan, were fired by the Education Ministry.

Fereydoun Ali Pour (4 years teaching experience), Ebrahim Rostami (10 years teaching experience) & Shoresh Mostafa Zadeh (12 years teaching experience), who are all three Sunni, were dismissed by the Ministry of Intelligence due to their religious beliefs.

Mohammad Sarai (who is also Sunni) was invited to teach at “Soheil”, the Vocational and Technical Education Center in Bukan. He was later interrogated, then prevented to teach following orders given by the Ministry of Intelligence.
