Iran? I did- n't know that Cyrus the Great, a Zoroastrian ruler in 539 B.C.E issued what is considered to be "The S U S A N First Charter of Human P R I C E Rights?' After conquering Babylon, he announced he would respect the tradi- ON RELIGION tions, customs and religions of the nations of his em- pire. He did not terrorize the people, and in- stead restored their dwellings and religious sanctuaries. Construction replaced destruction under his role. Unfomanately, the forces of destruction have emerged once again in Iran. Muslim leaders are attempting to eradicate the Baha'i Faith and erase all traces of its existence in the country of its origin. They have bulldozed shrines and cemeteries, and this past June wrecking crews destroyed a very important example of Islamic- Iranian architecture. The National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha'is in the United States asserts it was destroyed because: "The demolished building was the house of a great 19th-century statesman, calligrapher and literary figure, Mirza Abhas Nuri. Although he was born and died a Muslim, his son, Baha'u'llah founded the Baha'i Faith, a religion that promotes abolition of all prejudice, inde- pendent investigation of truth, equality of women and men, universal education, harmony of refigion and science and universal peace. For this, the cler- ical bigots have declared Baha'is, followers of Baha'u'llah, to be heretics and apostates, de- serving of death. In their determination to rid Iran of the Baha'i community and obliterate its very memory, the fundamentalists in power are prepared even to destroy the cultural heritage of their own coun- try, which they appear not to realize they hold in trust for humankind. Surely the time has come for Iranians everywhere to raise their voices in protest against such willful desecrations." The world helplessly watched as the Taliban destroyed towering Buddhist sculptures in Afghanistan. I wish there were a way to raise all of our voices in support of preservation of sacred art and dwellings of all world religions.
