On its January 15th episode titled “Baha’i – The World’s Faith”, host Lipika Pelham examines the Baha’i Faith and the ongoing persecution of the Baha’is in Iran.
In this program, Lipika travels to the United States, interviews several Baha’i refugees and listens to their stories of persecution, suffering, perseverance, and fortitude. She also travels to Chicago and visits the Baha’i temple there. She asks questions concerning the persecution of Baha’is and partakes in a devotional gathering.
