Thank You Ali

Informing is the least I can do and If it can help all the better. I have no other purpose in my blogs, articles or news posts but to inform on the good, the bad, the funny and sometimes like in these sad cases on the ugly things that are taking place in our country or in our name. I sincerely hope that this nightmare will come to an end for your community and for Iranians in general who deserve much better than what they have now or had yesterday.

Wishes for a Free and Democratic Iran !




Baha'i Gravesites Destroyed

by Ali Najafi (not verified) on

Thank you, Darius, for posting this article. The situation for the Baha'is in Iran seems to be getting much worse. I just read that last week, in Tehran, the government destoyed Baha'i gravesites of the national and local leadership that were executed in the early 1980s.

The cruelty of the Iranian government and clergy continue to amaze me.

My greatest comfort is the act of many Iranians, like yourself, that are not Baha'is, but are courageously and nobly calling attention to the great injustices against the many diverse groups of people in Iran, be they religious/philosophical minorities, woman, etc. Thank you.
