My interview with Baha’i International Lawyer and Author Sovaida Maani Ewing on the Persecution of Baha’is

My story on the persecution of the Baha’is in Iran has made it way to the “Watchdog” page on Radio Free Europe’s Web site. The U.S. Baha’i Web site also picked it up.

I had a great time interviewing Sovaida last week and we spoke for about an hour on human rights issues and the U.S.’s role in advocating those rights. If you are unfamiliar of the religious persecution that’s been going on for decades in the country, this article might open your eyes. Many people think the persecution began this summer or is limited to political dissidents. However, Baha’is are forbidden to be involved in politics and are not affiliated with the “green movement.” Have a look!
