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.
Here is a breath-taking aerial video of the Shrine of the Bab, located in Haifa, Israel, illumined at night. This video was published by the Baha’i World Centre on the occasion of the bicentenary anniversary of the Birth of the Bab, Prophet-herald of the Baha’i Faith.
This isn’t the first time the Baha’i World Centre has released aerial footage of this sacred and holy place in honour of the bicentenary of the Bab’s Birth: five new video clips of aerial footage of the Shrine of the Bab were recently been added to the Baha’i Media Bank.
The Baha’i Media Bank is an official website of the Baha’i World Centre, and it’s a great place to find a wide range of photographs relating to things like Baha’i history, holy places, events and activities.
Four of the five video clips of aerial footage show the Shrine of the Bab at different angles, while the fifth video clip is a montage of some of these four clips edited together.
