Congratulations to the management team and the followers of the BBC London!!  Last month “Androtea,” the representative of BBC London in Tehran, joined the “Baha’i belief” during a ceremony held in the presence of “Aghdasi”, a Director [member] of the Baha’i Spiritual Assembly in Abadan.  It is interesting to note that during the “Baptism[1]” ceremony he said, “Years ago when I lived in England, I became acquainted with your religion, and today I am honoured to become a follower.”
