For five years, seven Baha’i leaders have been wrongly imprisoned in Iran.
Their 20-year sentences are the longest given to any current prisoners of conscience in Iran. Their harshness reflects the Government’s resolve to oppress completely the Iranian Baha’i community, which faces a systematic, “cradle-to-grave” persecution that is among the most serious examples of state-sponsored religious persecution in the world today.
Baha’i communities around the world have launched a campaign calling for their immediate release – and the release of all innocent prisoners of conscience in Iranian prisons.

“The long-awaited album which began its seedling journey three years ago - with a vague sounding “Assist Thy Loved Ones”, sweaty palms and fingers stumbling over the guitar strings - is now complete. “Kindle” a collection of Baha’i Prayers and Writings shared through music is now available for purchase digitally from Bandcamp.
Physical CD can also be pre-ordered on the website which comes with immediate download of the album. Due to manufacturing of the CD, hard copies would arrive in mid April. Please share share share! Natasha x”
"Beloved friends: To every generation of young believers comes an opportunity to make a contribution to the fortunes of humanity, unique to their time of life. For the present generation, the moment has come to reflect, to commit, to steel themselves for a life of service from which blessing will flow in abundance. In our prayers at the Sacred Threshold, we entreat the Ancient Beauty that, from out a distracted and bewildered humanity, He may distil pure souls endowed with clear sight: youth whose integrity and uprightness are not undermined by dwelling on the faults of others and who are not immobilized by any shortcomings oftheir own; youth who will look to the Master and “bring those who have been excluded into the circle ofintimate friends”; youth whose consciousness ofthe failings ofsociety impels them to work for its transformation, not to distance themselves from it; youth who, whatever the cost, will refuse to pass by inequity in its many incarnations and will labour, instead, that “the light ofjustice may shed its radiance upon the whole world."

"Putting into melody these sacred words is like merging the two most important aspects of my life together. In times of test, with these verses embedded in my heart, they have reassured faith and confidence that everything will work out just fine. I’d like to share this, as a token of my gratitude to the Baha’i Faith, to my family and friends and of those our paths have not crossed yet… thank you for all your support. I hope this will inspire you too!"
