Happy Nowruz


The Special Rapporteur would like to extend his wishes for a very Happy Nowruz to the people and Government of Iran.

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul

If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain

If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain

-Saadi (13th-century poet)
