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.
One Hundred Thousand Veils’, from Luke Slott’s album ‘The Light of Unity’, was written to mark International Human Rights Day (10th December). The song focuses on the deteriorating human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran, specifically the plight of the Iranian Bahá’í community, Iran’s largest religious minority, who are being systematically deprived of some of the most basic human rights, including the right to higher education.
