Amnesty International Urgent Action

Amnesty International has launched an urgent action update exclusively devoted to the latest news about the Baha’i leaders in Iran.

RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send appeals to arrive as quickly as possible, in Persian, Arabic, English or your own language:

  • calling for the immediate and unconditional release of Fariba Kamalabadi Taefi, Jamaloddin Khanjani, Afif Naeimi, Saeid Rezaie, Behrouz Tavakkoli, Vahid Tizfahm and Mahvash Sabet, whom Amnesty International considers to be prisoners of conscience held because of their beliefs or peaceful activities on behalf of the Baha’i community;
  • expressing concern that the charges brought against the seven are politically motivated and calling on the authorities to drop them;

  • expressing concern at the possibility that the seven could face the death penalty;
  • calling on the authorities to ensure that the seven are protected from torture and other ill-treatment and that their conditions of detention meet international standards for the treatment of prisoners;
  • urging the authorities to ensure that they are given regular access to their relatives and lawyers of their choice and any medical treatment that they may require.

Dear Faryar,,

Don't you see? I am sorry to say that not too many Iranians care now and not too many will care after they are all dead - - that is the proven fact and I don't really want to be mean. So, stop asking, because they wont. Just pray for them and leave it with God. That is how I feel right now!!

Peace on earth


Thank you Faryar jan

For the last couple of days, I have not been able to rest; my thoughts have been with the families and the young children of these servants of humanity...

I hope in our days we get to see the effects of Baha'u'llah's prophecy and admonition to the Mullahs:

"O concourse of Muslim divines! By your deeds the exalted station of the people hath been abased, the standard of Islam hath been reversed, and mighty throne hath fallen." 

"Erelong"  (before long , soon) will ye witness the result of your deeds .
