In this video, Neena sings a cover of the 1985 hit “Mona With the Children” by Doug Cameron. This version was produced by Nabil Moghaddam of the popular duo Nabil & Karim.
The song is a protest song based on the true story of a Persian Baha’i girl named Mona Mahmudnizhad, who, in 1983, at the age of 16, together with nine other Baha’i women, was sentenced to death and hanged in Shiraz, Iran, because she was a Baha’i.
