Day 5 of #7Bahais7Years Campaign: Saeid Rezaie

Baha'i Leaders - Saeid Rezaie

Today we honour a father, an agricultural engineer, and a scholar: Saeid Rezaie. Wrongfully imprisoned with six other Baha’i leaders in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison.

During the early 1980s, when persecution of Baha’is was particularly intense and widespread, Mr. Rezaie moved to northern Iran and worked as a farming manager for a time. Later he moved to Kerman and worked as a carpenter and at other odd jobs in part because of the difficulties Baha’is faced finding formal employment or operating businesses.

In 1985, he opened an agricultural equipment company with a Baha’i friend in Fars Province. That company prospered and won wide respect among farmers in the region.
