    Finish with the tyranny of the ayatollahs regime.
    Freedom for all those good people in that ancient and lovely country.

    This is an inexcusable and deeply shameful human rights scandal upon the Iranian government. Baha’i is a beautiful religion dedicated to bringing peace between all people on one small planet. When fundamentalists of Islam seek to practise literally everything in the ancient scriptures, there are often victims, left begging for mercy, physically, emotionally or mentally damaged, or worse. Have mercy! Everyone should be free to peacefully follow religion according to their conscience. Free the Baha’i Seven!
