Nazanin's Petition Reaches Over 37000 Signatures

The petition to Save Nazanin, started by Iranian born Miss World Canada 2003, Nazanin Afshin-Jam, has now fetched over 37,000 signatures. The petition is also the current most active petition on petitiononline.com

Another petition has also started today in support of the UK MP, Clare Short, who has defended the Iranian Farivar family from deportation to Iran. The case of Farivar family also highlights the inhumane Islamic Republic state law which allows girls as young as 9 years old to be wed.
