The worldwide response to Iran’s intensified persecution of Baha’is has been nothing short of astounding. Actors, famous comedians and prominent academics have publicly declared their condemnation, generating international media coverage. Youths from across the globe, originating from various religious and ethnic backgrounds have been actively blogging and declaring their outrage.

But the response to the persecution is also marked by the innovative use of creative media in outreach efforts. One such effort is the recently released song, “Persecution” by Elika Mahony. Elika, whose great uncle was executed after refusing to recant his faith, dedicates the song to all those who have suffered and continue to suffer because of their steadfastness in their beliefs.


You can download the song and share it with your friends and family, feature it on your blog and help spread the word out.
