Baha’i Rights – Our first newsletter

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for visiting our website and for being interested enough to subscribe to our mailing list. We are extremely happy about how well this network has been received, we truly did not expect to get this many encouraging reactions!

Here in the Arab and Muslim world, not many people know about the Baha’i faith, and those who do have a very wrong image of it. When we shared our letters of support with friends and colleagues, they were extremely surprised to see how well Baha’is speak of our dear Prophet and of Islam in general. Many of us really admire the fact that despite extreme persecutions, Baha’is continue to support Muslims… and even after various painful experiences, they are nothing but forgiving.

This, dear friends, is what inspired this network. We decided to launch it in order to show the Arab and Muslim world the true face of the Baha’i faith, the innocence of the Baha’i communities, and the great positive spirit of this religion which must be practiced freely within all countries as it’s a basic human right to do so. It’s very alarming to see certain regimes violently harass and persecute Baha’is, but what’s even more alarming is the number of Muslims that continue to justify it. Our network’s mission is to change that, and we believe that we will one day have the power and influence to do so.

We plan to launch our network in both Arabic and Farsi in order to reach the right audience. Due to the evident lack of participation at this time, mostly because people either fear involvement or lack the interest, we cannot achieve this immediately. But I assure you that we will. If there are any people receiving this newsletter who would like to help us make this possible, we’d greatly appreciate it. Please forward this letter to those who might be interested in order for us to generate more action.

And on that note, we wish you a very good day, and thanks again for signing up to receive our newsletters.

To all our Baha’i friends reading this, we support you with pride. You are family to us. God bless you all.

To all our fellow Muslim friends reading this, we are doing the right thing by fighting for Baha’i human rights. Please continue.
