Journalists who work with this media outlet are often targeted by the Iranian regime. In February 2018, the site published reports and video of police violence during the many protests taking place in Iran. Several of its reporters were badly beaten by police, to the point that two of them spent several days in a coma.
The Iranian authorities have been targeting Sufis for the past decade. Members of Majzooban Nor’s staff were arrested during raids by Ministry of Intelligence agents on 7 and 8 September 2011. The site itself has been the target of several cyber-attacks and is no longer accessible within Iran.
