We continue to keep the Bahai’s of Iran and specially the Baha’i children in our thoughts and prayers. We also hope that the atmosphere of the schools remain a safe haven for all children of any belief or religion. The following news speaks of yet another condemnation of the treatment of the Baha’is of Iran by the Islamic republic regime. We appreciate your thoughts and feedbacks.
Ottawa, Ontario, 31 March 2009 (CBNS) — After a 90 minute debate, Monday evening 30 March 2009, Canada’s House of Commons adopted a strongly worded motion condemning the persecution of Baha’is in Iran and calling on the Government of Iran to immediately release Baha’i leaders currently in prison in Tehran. The debate was moving in the eloquence and well informed nature of the contributions from Members of Parliament representing virtually all regions of Canada, and as one MP noted, all parties were united in their concern about the situation of the Baha’is of Iran.
