It is worth mentioning that the non-Persian peoples in the political geography of Iran, Including the Ahwaz Arab people, deprived of education in their mother tongue, So Ahwazis trying to maintain their language and Arab identity through the learning of the Holy Quran. But the usurper Iranian regime Unlike false claim to prevent Ahwazi Arab from even learning the Holy Quran in a systematic plan to wipe out the Arab identity of the Ahwazi Arab people.
The Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights strongly condemned the mass arrest of Ahwazi Arab People without any charge and any permission from the court, and asking the international human rights organisation to put Iran under pressure to free all detainees from the Iranian intelligence services.
