June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
The Gold Coast Baha’i Community in Australia hosts information evenings that seek to explore a Baha’i perspective on topics that relate to the life of society. In this talk titled “Is Spirituality a Solution to the Economic Problems of Today?”, Dr. Soheil Abedian explores alternative economic models that narrow the gap between the rich and the poor.
Dr. Soheil Adedian holds a Masters degree in architecture from Graz University and an honorary doctorate from Bond University. He is the founder and executive chairman of Sunland Group Limited, an Australian development company. Dr. Abedian is also the chairman of the Adedian Foundation and the Sunland Foundation, which conduct philanthropic educational, research and health work.
Special thanks to the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the Gold Coast for organizing these talks and for granting Baha’i Blog permission to film them. You can find out more about the Gold Coast Baha’i Community here on their website: www.goldcoast.bahai.org.au
