Mahvash Sabet transferred to hospital


Mahvash Sabet is a Bahá’í prisoner of conscience immorally incarcerated in her native Iran because of her religion. She is one of seven such unfortunates who are referred to as the Yaran or Bahá’í 7. As many of you know I have had the honor of posting several of her poems on this site:

At Such a Time You’ll Come

Bear This in Mind

Lights Out

(For more of her incredible poetry, click on the Other Writers menu option above, or better yet, purchase her book Prison Poems, available at Amazon in the USA and at George Ronald in Great Britain.)

It is with heavy heart that I report that she has been transferred to Intensive Care as reported in this blog,  for, among other things (I understand she has tuberculosis of the bone), a broken but untreated hip fracture.

Please say a prayer for this long suffering and tormented woman and the well over 150 other Bahá’í  prisoners of conscience currently in Iranian jails solely because of their religious beliefs. Please.

Thank you.

  6. John, I know something (not much) about your passion for your faith & the brothers and sisters who walk out that faith with you …. I know this is painful

    • T, thank you. Edmund Burke said it perfectly: The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

      Yes, it is painful. Their sacrifice is so great and our ability to relieve their suffering so slight in the face of such cruel oppression.
