Saeed Learns About #SaveSaeed

By Jordan Sekulow1361544929000

Yesterday, Saeed’s Iranian family was able to visit Saeed in Evin Prison and tell him the truth about the outpouring of love and concern for him across America. 

The Iranian prison guards told Saeed we’d abandoned him, that he was forgotten and alone.  Saeed’s family told him that hundreds of thousands of Americans had signed petitions for his freedom, and they told him of the musicians who were all rallying to support him and call for his freedom.

His wife, Naghmeh told us how much the musicians’ support touched his heart:

When I first met Saeed music was an important part of worship and prayer.  He would often listen to Christian radio. When he heard about and the number of artists that he admired he was encouraged by their involvement - advocating for his release. It brought him hope as he suffers in his dark prison.  

While Saeed’s spirit is strong – stronger now that he knows he is far from forgotten – his treatment is still intolerable.  He reports he is being abused physically and psychologically.  We must redouble our efforts to #SaveSaeed.  The first U.N. meetings are in early March, and we want to tell the U.N. that 300,000 Americans have called on the international community to demand Saeed’s release.  More than 240,000 have signed, and thousands more are signing each day.

Now is the time.  Sign the petition to Save Saeed.  Your support helps keep hope alive.
