Due to the new limitations, the pressure has intensified on 4 female Baha’is in the Mashhad Vakilabad Prison.

Mashhad (Persian: مشهد, ‹Mašhad›, literally the place of martyrdom) is the second largest city in Iran and one of the holiest cities in the Shia Muslim world.

RAHANA: According to the RAHANA reporter, when Baha’i citizen Rozita Vaseghi who had endured 6 months of solitary confinement, joined the other 3 detainees in the Vakilabad Prison, the authorities intensified the pressure by limiting the number of prison visits and telephone calls.

The reports indicate that even their outdoor prison time has been reduced and has even been completely eliminated on some days.

Nahid Ghanbari, Rozita Vaseghi, Nasrin Ghadiri and Sima Rajabian are the 4 Baha’i detained that are serving their sentences in Mashhad Prison.

    These remarkable souls set a new standard for holy and heroic deeds that outshine the history of Masjhad, a brilliant example of pure and devoted conduct that the entire world can see shining brightly. If I ever visit, and I hope to one day, it will be to honor its noble prisoners, to see their jail and touch its walls and to pray for this city in their behalf.
