Doshmane Khak (Enemy of the Land) – Ahdi [LIVE]

Here’s a live video of a song by Persian Baha’i rapper, Ahdi, called “Doshmane Khak”, which means “Enemy of the Land” in Persian. The song’s title is a reference to what Baha’is are often called or labeled as in Iran, and so in this rap, Ahdi questions this derogatory label and accusation by recounting the contributions Baha’is in Iran have made for their country, reminding listeners about the love Baha’is have for Iran, and then asks listeners to decide if promoting things like unity, peace and equality deserves this label, or if this negative label should instead go to those who persecute and torture others for their beliefs, using some explicit examples and drawing on the history of the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran.
