No peace for Iran’s Baha’is on ABC’s “Earshot” hosted by David Rutledge

July 31, 2015, in Audio > Radio program, by

This is an episode on a radio program called “Earshot” hosted by David Rutledge on ABC (Australia):

The systematic persecution of members of the Baha’i faith in Iran shows no sign of easing. For Iranian-born Bahai’s in Australia, gratitude and love for their adopted home is mixed with distress at the plight of their co-religionists back in Iran. We travel to the western NSW town of Dubbo to meet with Baha’is and talk about education, memories of life in Iran, and their hopes and fears for the future.

My dad, Dr. Alimohammad Hashemi, MD served the poor and disadvantaged patient in Isfahan, Iran for 45 years. He was a Baha’i. He was let go from his job in government Clinic because of his religion and lost his pension! I am so honored that Australian people voices raise the concern for these innocent Baha’is!
