Today we honour a father, an industrialist, and a community educator: Afif Naeimi. Wrongfully imprisoned with six other Baha’i leaders in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison.
[Afif] was unable to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor because as a Baha’i he was denied access to a university education. Instead, he diverted his attention to business, one of the few avenues of work open to Baha’is, taking over his father-in-law’s blanket and textile factory.
