By Mahvash Sabet,Bahiyyih Nakhjavani

"My first stumble upon with Mahvash Sabet happened on a scorching summer’s day. After many hours of tedious ready in a distinct room put aside for attorneys, i used to be eventually allowed to satisfy her within the presence of 2 ladies guards . . . it was once noticeable that the Baha'i prisoners have been disadvantaged of clean air and sunlight for a very long time; their whole beings appeared thirsty for the energizing warmth and light of the sunlight. besides the fact that, regardless of all their hardships, their will remained unbroken." Mahnaz Parakand, Member of the guts for Human Rights defenders and one of many 4 legal professionals for the Yaran

Mahvash Sabet served for a number of years as secretary of an off-the-cuff council of 7 participants referred to as the Yaran, who've been accountable for coping with the affairs of the Iranian Baha'i neighborhood. In 2008 she was once arrested and jailed for two-and-a-half years with out a right listening to. She was once ultimately convicted and condemned in 2010, with her fellow individuals of the Yaran, to 20 years imprisonment. underneath all of the fake accusations – these frequently fabricated opposed to the Baha'is in Iran – there has been not anything greater than her trust in her religion and her dedication to operating the affairs of the Bahá’í community.

Her poems have allowed her to talk whilst phrases have been denied, to speak whilst not anyone was once hearing her. yet in contrast to many criminal poems, hers will not be in basic terms a catalog of hopes and fears. occasionally a method of ancient documentation, a chronicle of what the Baha'is were subjected to due to the fact that their incarceration; occasionally a sequence of pics of different girls trapped in felony along with her; occasionally meditations on powerlessness, on loneliness; her poems are plangent with charm, ardent with desire – for regardless of the accusations opposed to her, she is a prisoner of religion.

Adapted from the Persian through Bahiyyih Nakhjavani in keeping with translations by way of Violette and Ali Nakhjavani, those poems testify to the braveness and the depression, the distress and the hopes of millions of Iranians suffering to outlive stipulations of maximum oppression.
