Ethnic persecution

In Iran those who belong to ethnic groups such as Azeris, Kurds, or Sunnis have gone through ethnic persecution. If they aren't a Muslim group they are persecuted by illegal search and confiscation, unlawful arrest, torture, or even death. Pushing them away.

To get away from that many of them go to Australia. To get protected and to apply for a visa.
