If you could send a message to the 7 Baha’i leaders, imprisoned in atrocious circumstances in the notorious Evin prison, what would it be? Would you commend them for their bravery and steadfastness? Would you inform them that they remain in your prayers, and that you hope that they’re soon released?

Well, you no longer have to wonder! Mideast Youth, the network that has founded the Muslim Network for Baha’i Rights, has launched “Postcards for Iran“, a campaign that aims to draw awareness to the current deteriorating situation in Iran. Simply put, the campaign invites participants to send postcards to the Iranian government, expressing concern over its human rights violations, or postcards of support to Iranian prisoners of conscience.

Can it help?
In short, yes! In 1995, Dhabihu’llah Mahrami, a Baha’i from Yazd, was called before the Revolutionary Court and eventually convicted of apostasy and sentenced to death. Due to an international outcry and extensive media attention, his death sentence was commuted.

How does it work?
Sending a postcard is simple, and only requires you to fill out a form in 3 easy steps:

  • Select a recipient
  • Write a short message
  • Upload a graphic of your choice for the postcard

Please take a moment to send out a Postcard for Iran, and encourage your family, friends and colleagues to do the same.

To date, the 7 Baha’i leaders have received tens of postcards from all over the world: from New Zealand, to Bermuda, Ghana. Below are some of the postcards that have been sent.

Not one day goes by when we do not have you in our hearts and prayers. May your sacrifices soon be redeemed through witnessing the power and impact of your steadfastness and courage.

Allah-u-Abha! People all around the world are remembering you by name and praying for your steadfastness and your release. Your sacrifice brings the New World Order ever closer.

Thousands eagerly await your release while sitting in awe of your endurance of that dreadful prison. Like Bahaullah before you, your perseverance in the face of great oppression inspires each and every one of us to more fully appreciate our lives and to more fully devote them to justice, so that no Bahai, no Iranian, nor single person should endure the injustice you have.
