West Berkshire Bahá’i Ferdous Khorassani has helped spread the message of human rights issues in Iran by doing an interview on her local radio station Newbury Sound – which reaches listeners across the whole of West Berkshire.
An interview and report on the second session of the trial of seven Bahá’is in Tehran went out on Newbury Sound on several news reports throughout the breakfast show on 8 February.
She said: “I hope this kind of publicity will help our dear people of Iran for their freedom. I can’t believe in this day and age that people can’t live freely and respect each other. All religions should be able to live in unity, all together. We don’t have to believe the same thing – we should respect each other and be tolerant.
“I came to the UK in 1979 at the time of the Islamic revolution. I have not been back to Iran and have resigned myself to the fact that I may never see the family and friends still in Iran again.”
