|On 27 May 2014,seven candles were lit by|
the representatives of the UK's major
religions at a gathering at Westminster Abbey,
each representing one of Iran's imprisoned
former Baha'i leaders.
More recently, in its letter to the world's religious leaders in 2002, the Universal House of Justice identified religious prejudice as an increasingly dangerous force in the world.
"With every day that passes, danger grows that the rising fires of religious prejudice will ignite a worldwide conflagration the consequences of which are unthinkable," It wrote. "The crisis calls on religious leadership for a break with the past as decisive as those that opened the way for society to address equally corrosive prejudices of race, gender and nation."
