Education is Not a Crime | Saeid Shanbehzadeh | Palace of Fine Arts 2016 | [Elevated & Meaningful]

Education is Not a Crime presents Saeid Shanbehzadeh to perform in support of bringing an end to Iranian government bothering young, creative, and open-minded students, to finally allow education to really be open to all people within Iran’s borders. Iran has been persecuting Baha’is for over 200 years and the current Iranian regime doesn’t see Baha’is as human beings that deserve the basic human rights the rest of the people have. The Baha’i Faith is a religion that seeks to unify all mankind in one universal cause, one common Faith, and the teachings of the Baha’i Faith mention that all major religions of the world are one and the same, that their differences arise only due to the varying needs of the time in which they appear, to elevate the conditions of the world. But, the spiritual teachings remain constant regardless of time. The main reason why there is so much difference is due to the misunderstanding and misinterpretation of the Divine Texts, and also due to people following in the footsteps of their forefathers, and tradition rather than investigating the truth of religious teachings and their main purpose.

Humanity should never experience problems such as the denial of access to education, this is the most basic human rights we all deserve regardless of what one confesses to believe or what religion one decides to follow.

Please, whoever reads this and watches the video, do what you can to bring an end to how the government of Iran is treating its minorities by sharing this video, talking about this subject to your friends, family, and peers.

Maziar Bahari Founder of Education is Not a Crime Campaign:

Maziar Bahari was also the journalist who was arrested for smuggling photos of the riots that broke out in Iran in 2009, to BBC. Read for bit more detail below:
“In June 2009, BBC journalist Maziar Bahari, an Iranian-born Canadian citizen, returned to his native country to interview Mir-Hossein Moussavi, the prime challenger to incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. When Moussavi’s supporters protested Ahmadinejad’s declaration of victory, Bahari smuggled footage of the riots to the BBC. He was soon arrested by the Revolutionary Guard and — led by a man known only as “Rosewater” — was interrogated and tortured for 118 days.” (Introduction to the “Rosewater” 2014 movie, directed by Jon Stewart).

“Aye Jan Feshan” by Behzad Khoshmashrab

Baha’i Blog’s “Studio Sessions” is an initiative where we invite Baha’is and their friends from around the world to come into a studio and share the Baha’i Writings put to music.

In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, Behzad Khoshmashrab chants “Aye Jan Feshan” based on a tablet by Abdu’l-Baha in Persian. In this tablet Abdu’l-Baha expands on the journey of the soul in search of the most Beloved, and among other points, He highlights how the manner in which one goes about one’s search impacts the outcome of one’s quest.

You can also download the audio version of this song from Baha’i Blog’s Soundcloud page here:…

This song was filmed and recorded in Melbourne, Australia on 5 May, 2016.

This Tablet has not been translated into English yet, but we have included the Persian script of the Tablet below:


ای جانفشان یار بی نشان ھزار عارفان در جستجوی او ولی محروم و محجور از روی او اما تو یافتی و

طرفه حکایتی است و غریب بشارتی آنانکه جستند نیافتند. آنانکه نشستند یافتند استغفرالله

.جستجویشان جستجوی سیراب بود نه تشنگان و طلبشان طلب عاقلان بود نه عاشقان

عاقلان خوشه چین از سر لیلی غافلند این کرامت نیست جز مجنون خرمن سوز را

.شناختی تو نرد خدمت باختی و کار خود ساختی وعلم فوز وصلاح افراختی

عاشق نشسته به از عاقل متحرک
