The Baha’i faith imposes a system of in-house censorship on all Baha’is

Juan Cole says :

The Baha’i faith imposes a system of in-house censorship on all Baha’is (Johnson 1997, Rifkin 1997), just as most Middle Eastern governments have practiced censorship since the rise of printing in the nineteenth century. Within the Baha’i religion, any piece of writing by a Baha’i author about the religion intended for publication is to be vetted by elected Baha’i officials at the appropriate level (local, national, international). This requirement has provoked many conflicts between Baha’i officials and writers over the years.
